2010 calendars set pulses racing

MANY Rockhampton people are looking forward to a year of dates with hot guys and girls.

As calendar sales soar across the city, some of the more revealing titles are proving most popular.

Archer Park Newsagency owner Lyndal Della-Bosca said she’d noticed a marked increase in the number of calendar sales for 2010, compared to previous years.

Ms Della-Bosca said pretty much all types of calendar had sold well though the Australian ones, with pictures of things like beaches, had been slower.

“Normally at this time of the year we have a healthy supply of calendars left, but now looking at my supply we’ve sold a lot more this year,” Ms Della-Bosca said.

“Why that is, I’m not sure, but calendars are as popular as ever.”

A check of available calendars found something for just about everybody.

Varieties included nature, wildlife, humour, sport, fashion, crafts, cars and pets.

Most ranged in price from $5 for a small calendar to $25 for a glossy one.

“We find at this time of year it’s busy,” Ms Della-Bosca said.

“A lot of people like to buy them as Christmas presents ... others buy them around now and the rest when they find they need them.”

She said primarily calendars were bought by people aged above 30.

Meanwhile, former Yeppoon model Angela Tickner (right) is the cover girl of the Century Batteries V8 Utes & Beauts Calendar. Angela is featured as Miss May in the glossy wall calendar and she received the highest number of public votes by any model featured in the 2009 edition.
