2016 CALENDAR: a discussion was held as to that might we do next year to generate funds? We discussed if we should do another calendar. If so, what should we do differently with images and format?

Last year we made about $300 on calendar sales.  Good idea but a lot of work.  Possibly change the number of copies printed to a lower number. The club will reconsider in the summer.
