Nice! All of the pictures I picked except Randy's.

I'm surprised you guys liked my picture so much... Nobody said anything when I posted it

Picking months is going to be annoying, but first choice goes to Joe. As the overall winner, he gets first crack at it.

Well, since there were NO VERTS that made the cut there's no need to argue about whether we get a summer month or not!

Karl, I think the best way to arbitrate this is chosen photo winners get to pick a month by order of most votes. Joe goes first, CJ second, etc. Kinda sucks for Jon but it's a system with a fair logic to it. Otherwise we'll be submitting photos for next years calendar while you're still trying to make everyone happy with their favorite month.

Okay, notifications have been sent out to all winners seeking original image files. I'll set up a payment system later today or tonight. Gotta get busy at work for a while.

And it's official. Joe, Lola isnt some two-bit honey you can just get rid of on a whim. She needs to be cared for like the beauty queen she is

I don't care which month, but a fall one would suit the picture best.

I dont really care what month I get, but I think that cj and enseriojose should def have atleast november and december b/c you can tell thats when the photos were taken. Just to make the calendar look right.

Anyone know how to get a hold of Jon Shafer (B'Fest founder)? I tried to contact him to request usage of the Bimmerfest logo & motto, but when you press send it says that his account is setup so that it cannot receive PMs. Additionally, the contact info section in his profile just refers back to his profile page and the B'Fest main page...

Maybe try the Facebook account set up for Bimmerfest?

And since we get a month choice I wouldn't mind February. Is there a way you'll be able to include username/model too?

It would be cool to put in there below our picture year, model and mods. Would be pretty sweet i think.

I'm ignoring all month requests until we hear back from Big Boy Joe.

His Facebook page, that's how I get ahold of him.

I suppose I'll take the cover, giving my copy to the photographer so it'll end up framed anyways

Thanks for the votes guys! Makes me miss the ol girl.

I swear I only voted once!

i thought that chad was going to be on the cover??

I was planning to, but didn't get a chance to take any shots in my Speedo. I can't now - Karl expressly forbade me from any poses with pointy nipples and its too cold not to now.

One must draw the line of reason somewhere...

A little update on the payment strategy: It's going to take me a little bit to figure everything out. Before I can start asking for money, I have to calculate the exact cost of everything. This not only includes the cost of the calendars with shipping to me, but also includes the cost of shipping individual copies to people. I'll have to stop by a post office and get a shipping and materials price quote to get an accurate sense of things. Once I figure out the bottom line, out the door price, I'll set up a place to send money. I'm actually considering using Kickstarter. That way, everyone who requested a copy can "donate" their fee, and if someone flakes out (or if numerous people do), the kickstarter goal will not be met and all the money will be quickly returned with no fuss. It's basically a zero risk proposition. That said, I've never used Kickstarter before, so I'll have to double check to make sure that it will work for our needs.

In the meantime, I've got many other things to work on, such as collecting all the photos and putting them into a calendar format. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience!
