Is the calendar photo contest still open?

And where do I sign up for this year's Potluck Social?

Or is the answer to all these, "There isn't one".

Has Chief Joseph got it right?

.          So then I guess that life as we know it has come to an end.

Why? We're still hiking. The pandemic hasn't stopped us from taking pictures. Tom doesn't have to hand out the Calendars at a Social in order for us to have either one.

Tom, you don't have to be a physical middleman on the Calendars. Set it up with Mixbook, so we all order our calendars separately. Or if Mixbook requires a bulk order, get Josh Lewis to handle it.

As for the Social, we can have that in January. We've done that some years when we could all get together. ..... So we have plenty of time to have a photo contest and get a Calendar made.

Slugman suggested doing a drive-in Social, but Seawallrunner's idea is better. She said,

.        I have a Zoom account that we can use.

With Zoom we can all see each other; we can even eat together.      huh.gif       Sure we can.  I'll make my spaghetti. Ski will make pies. We just can't share quite the way we usually do. ...... Hey! We don't even have to have our masks on.         smile.gif

Tom, it's been 20 years (!) since I held things together when MtnGoat's site was wiped out, while you and Caver built this one. ..... Please don't let Corona-19 add NWHikers to it's list of victems.

Hopefully we will have a calendar for 2022. Just don't think it's going to happen for 2021 due to covid and other distractions.

One thing we could do is have a photo of the month contest to honor calendar worthy photos taken in 2020.  For example, in December we could have members submit and vote for the January photo, in January we could vote for the February photo, and so on. Might be a good cabin fever distraction and I think we would get better participation than trying to put together a last minute calendar.

I hope not, but on the bright side I am usually wrong, at least that's the feedback I typically get..

I forgot about cover as well. I guess we could kick that off in November with photo of the year.

NO. It isn't, Barb. It's an acceptance of Chief Joseph's observation. A couple of years ago, you would have said, "I don't know about the Calendar, but I can get together with Seawallrunner to plan a virtual Potluck".

Tom would have started the Photo Contest today, to run two weeks. It would take him about an hour. And he would have asked an understudy to contact Mixbook to find out what we had to do to handle a Calendar under current conditions.

And asked for a volunteer to actually handle the details of Calendar creation and distribution.

.                  rotf.gif                      But it isn't going to happen.                       nopity.gif

I really thought NWHikers would outlast us, because our interest in exploration seemed to be unique. ..... Oh well. I'm 79. It will outlast me.

I will miss the calendar contest and social, but can live without it. The Bulgers party is skipping this year too. There's always next year!

nwhikers continues to be my go-to place for hiking information and conversation every day. I'm so glad it has remained a site for people willing to share high quality outdoor information and not devolve into a "look where I am" showcase. Thanks to Tom and all the moderators for keeping the lights on.
