Contractor Talk Calander 2014.... ..


I was thinking about the contests we have held here over the past few years and I thought it would be a great idea to have a Calander competition for 2014. A way to show what the members of CT are capable of....

I belong to another forum and what they do every year is have submissions for (machinery) and if it's accepted your entry will be displayed on one of the monthly pages-full page (back of the prior month).





On the other forum they run the Calander and you only pay $10.00 and that includes shipping. If we bump that up slightly, there could be an extra bonus .....gift card for all those that made it.......just a thought...

So if we can get enough interest in this , and prepare, I think it would be a way of getting everyone involved.......I can arrange for the running, would be great if a few other members could help out.....set a committee up.......

We would have 12 months to get this up and running......

Specify 1 thread for entries-only.....we can't have conversations and discussions on there because it will become a little to much to go through all the posts searching for entries.....

Coments could be made on a seperate thread dedicated to coments relating to the entry posts.

Submissions of your jobs and workmanship can be of anything you have done .....but it has to be your work. We could break it down by individual trade,....drywall/painting,tiling,siding,roofing,plaster,concrete,ma sonry,excavation,plumbing,electrical,framing,finis h carpentry,,woodworking,,,,,or just go by individual entries without being trade specific.....

Each entry,(if accepted into the Calander) would have a description of the company/individual and a description of the picture - work description...brief.

However, no accepted entries will be notified publically until the order for the deadline is over and the Calander is run on the press.....

If there is enough interest , I will get the details of what is needed for the limit to start the run....the more we are able to run, the less costly it will be.....keep that in mind...

This is just an idea but it's all up to the members here weather or not this will come to fruition.....

I think it's a win - win situation....no stress in doing extra work for a contest .....

Let me know what you think, ideas,....


Thanks,

B,

Or we could cut to the chase and just make a Leo calendar.

I think it's a great idea.

Woe,woe,woe,.....

Wait a second Gents.......we're putting the cart before the horse.....

I think we need to know what interest there will be before we do anything.....

I started this topic without a poll..if one of the mods would be kind enough to add that yes/no....that would be great.....im not not sure I can do that now...


B,

B,
You can add a pole, but you need a pole and a shovel.

You can't, however, add a poll. Nor can the mods.


"Woe, woe, woe"? Are you describing your day?

Re: Contractor Talk Calander 2014.... ..


Well,
There really is some pride in doing a neat job......I've seen some real nice wiring and some, not so neat,,,,,

That goes for plumbing as well.......


Just saying,,,,, something to stand back and be proud of....


And if your in....something to hand out to your Clients.....

By the way,...
If your entry is submitted And ACCEPTED,..you do get a free copy weather you purchased a Calander or not......


There is a lot we could do with this......including your business listing.....etc...etc.....

Just some ideas I have flying around in the right hemisphere of my cranium.....

B,

Re: Contractor Talk Calander 2014.... ..


Through purchasing the Calander..., but like I said,.....

The more I get a commitment from , the less it costs,."by volume "


We have 11 months to work this out, but I need to see what level of interest this is going to generate.....

And if, we do get a positive feedback,..need to set up a committee ...
