Guess I need to get off my butt and do something then! Then to remember what I did to make it! :bigrofl:

Should I do the same as last year? Use the tractor of the month pics?

It's easier to get the first place pics, but that could be done. I have to find a calendar template to put in. I have last years files, so layout will be easy. Maybe I should start a thread on this?

I managed to get a nice calendar from my local JD dealership this year. They have one with working tractors from local farms this year which was interesting. It's not a corporate calendar but one done by the local dealership.

Napa always gives a nice one away.  You have to specify if you want cars or tractors.  I haven't gone over to get mine yet to know if they are giving them away this year.  I hope so as it's a pretty nice calender.

That would interesting to see....one with tractor from a place not familar to most poeple here. Im sure there are some differnt things, not found in pictures in the states. I've been trying to find some GT ones from oversea's but there are not common.

I get a GT calendar made every year from pictures I've taken at shows the previous year.  Any of the office stores or Walmart can make them.  I use OfficeMax and if you're only having one made they'll actually print it while you wait.  They're even using a glossy paper stock this year so the calendars came out great.  Best part is they cost under $15 and OM had them on sale last week for $8.99.  Just crop your pics to an 8.5x11" ratio.  You'll want to use at least a 5-6 megapixel image so it looks nice at that size and put them on a flash drive to take to the store.

 

Heck, I can even e-mail you the cropped pics I used for this year's calendar if anyone's interested. (Sears Custom, Allis Homesteader, Squire Applegate, JD Patio set, Panzer w/loader, AMF, White 1650, Case 444, MF 12, Economy, Bolens 750, WH stainless, and PA plow day scene)

We have a large JD dealership that has about 10 outlets over 3 provinces here. This is the first year I've seen them make their own calendar with local tractors. A few years back JD had a really nice one. It was pictures of restored vintage JD tractors from real old steam jobs up through the large gas and early diesel tractors and then I think there was 1 or 2 modern ones. I think that's my all time favourite.
