Sorry I have been dragging my knuckles getting things planned for the "Heartland KC Reunion".
We need input on the color of the shirts and the design. Also suggestions on where to have them made up.
Vicki and I think, Mongo's Garage should also be on the shirt. Mongo and his family were great hosts last year and have agreed to host us again this year.

Per Admin request, the title "Stovebolt Reunion" is being retired and renamed "The Heartland Stovebolt Reunion".
John and Peggy want to make events more localized.

So please offer up any suggestions and I'll start contacting some venders for prices.
Thanks
Don & Vicki

Thanks Craig, I looked it up and it’s Shirt Tails. inc off of hwy 17 in Brunswick.
I’ll contact them this week. Will it help if I mention your name?

Mongo is also checking into a place near him and said he may work up a design. I’ll call him this afternoon and see what he thinks.

The annual Stovebolt Reunion in Kansas City will wrap up with this year. We may realize other major gatherings in different parts of the country, depending on a lot of factors. We think the Annual Reunion had a GREAT run and something similar may *happen* again, just like it happened in the beginning.

The same thing has happened with Homecoming. It was retired LAST year and this year the local even was WAM (Weekend at Mikes'). It was great. The ODDS plans more get togethers already.

Bolters are coming together in their local areas and that seems to be how all this started. We are encouraging more of that; getting to know the people in your own neck of the woods. Hence, we are beefing up / supporting the Side Lot section as much as we can; encouraging and giving them little guidance if needed. The Southern Bolters are a great example.

If you all decide to call the get together in the Heartland the "Heartland Stovebolt Reunion," that was Don's call. I thought it may be a little confusing with the Kansas City Reunion. Maybe that's just me.

We haven't insisted on local groups using GABFest anymore since that was an original term to get people use to the idea of coming together, meeting the Bolters in person who they had "met" on line in Stovebolt. (Gathering of Bolters)


There's a great crew in the Heartland. I think it break forth in new growth! yahoo

Tell you what Peggy, we'll make the name a topic for discussion at Mongo's during the meeting.
But for a lot of us that have been attending for years, it is a Reunion.

Now, back to the T-shirts.

Ron,

Especially now with the fuel prices and the economy in general. It was hard enough with the Covid craziness. Closer is good; meeting up with anybody these days is good! wave

Don,

Smart idea to see what the Heartland locals want to do. Wonder if HandyAndy will be coming? Maybe he'll have some additional input/ideas. headscratch

Thanks Craig I'll contact them this week. I'll also contact a place near Mongo's garage and see what they can do.
We need input on the color of the shirts. If I have to decide, they will be hot pink, for breast cancer awareness.

I am up for helping with the design. I have a commercial license for a decent selection of old trucks. If there is a particular year/style people were interested in I could try and mock one up.

This is an example of one I modified last year.
