Calendar Pictures are up!

In order to make the vote counting a lot easier we have separated the pictures by season.

For now, just run through the pics a few times and get a feel for the ones you like best.

We'll initiate the voting process shortly.

Winter
Spring
Summer
Fall

trying to pick just one photo for each season is going to be VERY challenging.

There is a road that goes up to the top of that mountain.

The events of some games took place on it too. Couple times even.

Once we have the selected 12 pics, can we also vote to decide what order they will be in? Obviously we don't put snow in summer, but, for example, Sept vs Oct? Any one else agree that we should vote on this (powers that be-permitting, of course )

Shoot! WE have a problem Neil. For the Fall pictures, the index numbering goes .....F16 F17 F19....skipping F18. However, when you are clicking on the actual pictures, the numbering is correct.

we'll have to clarify from voters who have already cast....

They're consistant.

Made the same mistake last year.

I'll fix this tomorrow night.

When you vote use the file number at the bottom (but don't add the .jpg).

I won't be able to fix this until next week.

Sorry.
Glitch repaired. Don't vote for number 18 on the Fall list.

Hi, can you run through the mechanics of voting? Do we pick one pic a season, email you our votes, etc.?
