Up early on Friday Tim! 6:30 am there and 3:30 pm Thursday here!
You and Karen have been to the Reunion several times.
Got any ideas for a t-shirt?

Back a few years ago some shirts were done in a purple color that I thought looked really good. (at one time I think we almost considered it "our color"?) Dark enough to hide the tobacco stains (and some grease) and gold, yellow or sliver colors looked good with the shirt.
And while I love and always promote Stovebolt, I personally, and its a personal thing with me, don't like the entire back of a shirt all filled up. It seems to take away from the message. We've had club shirts like this for years around my area and finally figured out that while folks love their cars and trucks most want to "KISS" it as in "Keep It Simple Stupid"...... Big enough to read but small enough not to be overbearing.
I still have a couple Stovebolt shirts I've had embroidered over the years and can see folks staring/looking/reading what the shirts say rather than a bunch of red ink splattered all over it that simply says yeah, I'm a car or truck nut. (I've always loved the "still plays with trucks" logo)

.....I do vote for pockets and would even spring for a golf/polo type shirt if its in the offering.
I'm not complaining guys, this comes up each year and I'm just trying to get everyone to thinking!!!!

I agree with Achipmunk on keeping the design clean, simple, and not too overbearing. Small logo and script on the front pocket, and maybe small script on the sleeve or upper back neck area. I'm a fan of gray....sorry Achipmunk, but I don't have any shoes that go well with purple....:)

Alvin, I have one of those purple shirts. Got it at my first Reunion in 2009.
Wore it for the group picture and took it off, not because of the color, but because it was too hot in the sun.
Maybe I need to cut off the sleeves and collar, to be able to wear it?

The clean and simple design is a good idea, something on the back and something on the pocket.
I also like the light/bright colored T's. Cooler to wear when it is T-shirt weather.
Makes our group stand out at shows.

Tom, how about a gray shirt with some simple bright lettering?

Kevin, we need to get together next week and see if we can come up with something.
Maybe Patty Malone's, when you get off work, easy to get to for both of us and easy to get back on the highway.

Keep the ideas coming!!
Don

Don,

A gray shirt with bright lettering sounds fine to me.
Hopefully someone can help with a logo/graphic to use.

Kevin and I should be meeting up after the holiday weekend.
He is new to Stovebolt, but looks like he has some good talent designing.
I don't have that talent!

Also, unless John jumps in here, it is our parade! "hint, hint"

Please keep the input coming!
Don

Thanks Alvin!
I like the
"Stovebolts are ageless"
Or
"Still plays with trucks"
Second one would be good because we will be at a truck show.

Kevin (Shakey61) and I should be meeting up this next Friday and see what we can come up with, using these suggestions.

Please everyone, if you are attending or not, give us your ideas for a design!
Don
