Maybe we'll hand deliver them! (see the other thread)


Most everyone has a basic graphics program on their computer. Windows comes with Paint.
Lets see some more ideas. They can be very rough drawings, we'll worry about the details later.

It's settled: no "fan club". It was a suggestion from a couple people, but they seem outnumbered.

By the way, I know we have too many ways to upload photos to this forum.
When Babbman gets enough free time to update our forum software, we'll clean it up.

In the mean time, this one works well:

Sorry, no time to draw on this one...

Simple simple simple!

Here's a thought...

Think of the existing IKE shirts. Logo in the front, IKE text on the back...

now...

We have black shirts for the team, red shirts for 'fans' (I still hate that term). Let's not even think about what the shirts are going to be next year... it just makes everything more complicated and nothing will ever get done.

IKE logo where it is on the front, 180 Go! on the back with the fan of kites larger and in the center of the back of the shirt.

All in White.

If we must, put 180 Go! in the front of the shirt too.

Simple design, simple message.

If we change the team shirts to red next year, we can use the same design we currently have and that will be more than enough differentiation. Circle of kites for the team, fan of kites for the fans.

Something like "Ground Crew" might be a little more clever and inclusive. Although I question the need to make any distinction at all.

Or maybe do one of those "Property of" shirts like you see for lots of other things.

A red shirt that looks Babb suggests.
Is it worth me ordering a bunch?

They would sell for $15 or $20.

As the token Englishman, may I have a gramatically correct one that says '180, go!'? ;) ;) ;)

Ha!
And we could do one in Midwest American English: "180 needs turned, now"
or New Jersey English: "180 f***ing GO!"
or Upper Middle American English: "180, Go, doncha know"
or Canadian English: "180 go, eh?"
or are we getting sidetracked here...

Seems the aussie/british/american translation broke down ... must be the "look through a knot hole" size screen on the iPhone thing. I think he means to use the Aussie command of "180 do" ... kind of neat when you thing about it!

Cheers,
Tom

Babb has the right idea. I would buy one per Mike's question.

I took a shot at a six kite fan with two different overlaps. My spacing needs to be more even, but the kites are more recognizable.

John,

Take it one more step please ...use the fan, only space the kites out slightly until they are not touching each other.

Thanks,
Tom

Here you go Tom. I had played with it before but had trouble with the symmetry. I figured out how to flip the left side to maintain the same angles.
I think I need the tips to be on the circumference of an imaginery circle to make it look best.

Ok, How do you do the quote boxes many people use??

I tried and it wasn't pretty! :oopsp:

Click the Quote button at the upper right of a person's message, and it will do it for you in a new text box.

Basically, the person's text gets placed between the quote tags.

[ quote ] blah blah blah [/ quote ]

but without the spaces it turns into...

blah blah blah

Doh! When a little off the wire there, I of course meant ob 081. "B" and "D" are so easy to confuse for a simpleton like me.

@Rev JB - what Jeff said + you can also edit the quote so only the bit you want is included as I did with Jeepster's quote above. You can also be naughty if you want and put words into someone's mouth (although it is considered very bad netiquette):

Thanks John ...

I tend to like the kites slightly separated so that it is more clear what is being viewed. When they are over lapped in a circle, it leaves a hint of a Japanese fan.

Morning,
Tom

I actually like the one on the left here. It looks like they're fanned out on the ground instead of flying, but I think the shape is more obvious. Since we've taken the "fan club" off the shirts, I'm not sure people will get that it's a fan if it's any more subtle.
