  1. NOW AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WE NEED YOUR PHOTOS!!! So lets try again for 2019 We have the photos from last year and will be going through those and will include these too. Please spread the word, if you know someone who has taken a large amount of photos from a show or meet - please ask them to get in touch. We would like to use at least 1 group photo from shows/meets on each page. So please send group shots too! If we don't have enough photos or photos of quality then it will be pulled, but hopefully it won't come to that. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please submit your photos to the following email address: ccukcalendar@outlook.com IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PLEASE READ : Please include your username in the subject title or email. Photos must be of a good quality, this means they MUST be of a certain size - 1Mb minimum for small photo entries and around 4mb or higher for main images Any photos below 1Mb will more than likely be unusable, if we receive photos under this they may not be used and you may not be informed. Don't save and send photos from Facebook or other social media as they kill the quality and are reduced in size so are unusable. Regards to the actual photo, previous years we had people sending photos of their cars covered in mud and just sat on the drive or half the car cut out of the photo. Try and be a bit more creative - wash your car, go find a nice location and take some photos if you don't already have some. If anyone has group photos from shows or meets, please send them along too as we need those just as much as your own cars. CLOSING DATE: Friday 2nd November 2018

    Have you moved far? Can you check another time when they might be in over the weekend or anything? Or do you have a re-route on your post set up? Surely they would let you have your post if you have only just moved?

    Hi, it was definitely posted from what I can see. Did you get your shipped email (poss in your junk). Can you PM Old Red and confirm the address as he posted them. If not we can get another one posted out to you. Thanks

    Thanks Amanda Off the top of my head I’m sure we only received 1 photo of jello with another car next to it who I can’t remember who it was but the qaulity wasn’t great and the sizing might have been an issue too but I can’t remember. Try and make sure she gets some good photos this year and send them across for the next one. We are keeping the email open all year for photos to be sent so I’m hoping after each show or meet people will send photos across Thanks Jan, the memorial page was a pleasure to do, we really wanted to do something that meant a lot to members and just seemed very fitting for this years calendar. Just a shame we have lost such great people Just so you all know, we have sent a calendar ( free of charge of course) to the family members of those on the memorial page, I was in touch with them while the calendar was being designed and they were all very supportive

    It’s just getting ridiculous to be honest, I know people appreciate it mostly but you still have no real idea the amount of work that goes into it ontop of our own full time jobs and home life, we were up till gone 1am most nights for days over the course of several weeks making sure this calendar was available and to then have to defend it time after time is just getting stupid and not really worth the hassle. Dave did all the designing and selecting photos, I sort through emails, save them and rename into members files etc. It’s a joint effort but a lot of the work is down to Dave and im not going to sit here and not defend him because it’s his hard work. Each year we give you more and more info, you’re all adults I shouldn’t really have to go into that much. We state every year that we will try to include everyone but again it’s not guaranteed and we try out best, simple as that. I didn’t want to comment again but I’m getting pretty fed up. Just to add.... I don’t want anyone to fall out over this, it’s not worth it. It’s a New year, let’s enjoy the calendar for what it is and let’s look forward another great year with CCUK While we have your attention....don’t forget about the annual party on the 26th. I want to see as many of you there as possible

    Just to clarify on the memorial page: The ones we requested were the memorial photos and we decided not to use the ones from meets as the page looked too clustered so we decided to simplify the page and keep it to 1 photo of the member and 2 of the car where possible (we couldn’t get a photo of Simon unfortunately) We wanted to have as many photos as possible so that we could have a few options/variations for the memorial page to decide which looked best. Im not going into any more detail on the subject.

    Not entirely accurate, I did say that and I also said I can get Dave to go back over your photos and give you feedback if you want me to and you never replied. I didn’t know you hadn’t been in it previously either as don’t look back at previous lists. It’s time consuming enough without having to check if everyone has been in a previous year so it’s not something I check. Bullet point 4 in the first post does say try and be creative and think about the photo. But to clarify a few points for everyone for future photos: Images which are already cropped can’t be used as Dave has to crop them further so even more of the photo/car is removed. Please try and avoid items around the car or people in the background. Just the car please. We don’t tend to use interior photos, engine bay photos or people. We try and keep it simply the cars as a whole. We want people to think about the photo, if there are people around the car wait till it’s clear or ask them politely if they could move. If you’re taking a photo on the driveway with the wheelie bin next to it...take the car for a drive and find a nice location wheelie bin free. if photos aren’t used they just aren’t suitable for whatever reason and it’s nothing personal about the car, the owner or whatever. I can fully appreciate the disappointment for anyone who hasn’t made it in but from our point of view we are just trying to do the best calendar possible and it’s not a quick process believe me. There is an incredible amount of time and hard work that goes into the calendar, Daves extremely good at what he does and is very professional. There is always going to be someone who isn’t happy and all I can do is apologise again. I would encourage people to send as many photos as possible, this year we are going to be accepting photos all year round too!! I don’t like disappointing members and I certainly don’t want anyone annoyed but there isn’t much else I can do apart from apologise again and just ask you all to try and send the best photos possible.

    So here you go....... Calendars should be available to pre-order from tomorrow evening, we are expecting the calendars to reach us by the end of next week. We will be posting out orders as soon as we get them, some of you might even have them between Christmas and New Year but we can't promise anything! I would say early Jan to take into account any delays in the postal system. Prices are: £12 posted or £10 collected from Bryan in Norwich or even the club party in January.

    Its a great turnout and gives us plenty of options to chose from, just what we like. Also people sent a good mixture of their own car and also we had lots of photos from shows and meets sent over which is fantastic. There are still quite a few of unusable ones due to size or the photo quality just not quite good enough but apart from the odd email, most had at least 1 photo that was usable and everyone will get in Very pleased to have had such a great response so thank you again

    When sending photos can you please send as an attachment rather than inserting the photo in the email, think it’s mainly an iPhone issue. When you insert into the mail message and not add an attachment it’s resizing them I think. Thank you
