Scan Week (from January 9) -- Best of 2016 / Plans for 2017

We are four days into 2017, so it’s time for us to think about a “Best of 2016 / Plans for 2017” scan event. We have done the “Best of 20XX” a few times, but the “Plans for 2017” will present a new question.

Here are some prompts that might inspire our “Best of 2016” posts:

  • your favorite watch acquisition / acquisitions of the year -- perhaps a lucky BuyItNow or flea market find, or maybe a watch that you bought, after many years of searching
  • a favorite photo that you took during the year
  • a favorite get-together or meeting with other enthusiasts
  • a favorite technology, gadget, toy, or device that enhanced your collecting experience
And here are some ideas for “Plans for 2017” postings:
  • a watch that is at the top of your "wish list"
  • a resolution relating to your collection – consolidate it / expand it / focus on a particular model?
  • something that you are excited about for 2017 . . . maybe a watch that TAG Heuer will introduce?
  • a skill that you want to master to support the hobby – watch photography / watchmaking / Excel spreadsheets
Of course, you can address as many of these topics as you like or just pick one favorite thought or photo from the year / for the New Year.

Let’s schedule our “Best of 2016” / “Plans for 2017” to start on Monday, January 9th, and run through Sunday, January 15. As always, we will be flexible with the timing, so you can also post a little early or late, at your convenience. You can also go off-topic, to show us your new house, a new member of your family, a favorite vacation spot, or a memorable video or album.

Whatever you post, please use the subject line "Best of 2016" / “Plans for 2017” / etc.

OK, team . . . 2016 was an amazing year for our community, so please share some reflections / experiences / great photos!!
