I can only surmise that the second half of what your last post was directed elsewhere. Don't like how someone phrases something for emphasis...well, it's the Internet and this is a public forum.

Personally, I'm not saying that this is a horrendous idea...plenty of guys take pictures of themselves and their teammates all geared up at games. Not sure that they'd make a coffee table book out of it or not. Teams make websites, team forums, blow up photos for wallpaper, etc...

I do think this Airsoft Girls Calendar thing (that is the title of the thread) is weird...but hey, whatever floats your boat I suppose. I'd agree that there are some good female shooters out there for sure...tribute the hell out 'em (I'd wonder which ones would have responded to you to indicated their participation...).

Personally, I think that it would be truer to the spirit of things if you ended up taking a collection of shots from all the games across Canada...guys and/or girls...and made up a calendar of that. From what I've seen in the other sections there are some amazing action shots (in game or posed).

Just my $ always, feel free to ignore...
well the point was to get as many girls as possible who play airsoft from across Canada to pose in their gear either in game or otherwise and sum it all together, i posted a rough draft of what i thought would be good with my own picture. a photo a mug shot a short blurb. all about the girls who we rarely see out there and who kick ass, I've had at least 7 girls say their interested, Lethalbarbie showed a lot of interest. Cloves seems to want to get in on this too. Goddess-of-War seems interested as well. as for your opinion i respect it, though some people get on my nerves when they continue to post their negative opinions once is enough to get it across. though brian has posted more than once but i appreciate his points simply because he brings up some small issues which i myself would have probably over looked, sometimes the negative can be a good thing, but post after post of your opinion about how this is a bad idea, isn't helpful at all
