I'm not wedded to the idea of white, other than that should be the background color of the steam gauge imho.  Adding a white gauge background to a colored shirt can certainly be done, but will probably add to the cost.  The other thing is trying to get everyone to agree on a color (we can't even agree on white), but as I said, I'm certainly not wedded to white.  :)

Whatever color is decided upon should have the broadest appeal and should contrast well with the blue MLS logo.  I patterned things after the Steamaholics badge, which is sort of the "official" SA logo.

Yes, no name on the shirt...
On the ISLSMR shirts, the name was optional.  Can probably do the same thing here.

I think the shirt is a little cluttered, with the writing on both sides. And instead of Steam addict and My Large Scale, only have Names and SA#s.
Again, as with the ISLSMR shirt, the name and SA # qould be optional (and a few bucks extra).  As for eliminating the logos and "Steamaholics", to me there's no point in even having a shirt if that's done.  May as well embroider a shirt myself if all I want is my name and SA#.

As we can already see, making everyone happy is going to be exceedingly difficult (if not impossible) as is always the case.

Okay everyone, not to be argumentative or contrary here, but I didn't want to open this whole thing up for debate ad nauseum on a redisign.  The design of the Steamaholics logo and badge was chosen back in March of '06 via five pages of debate.  The badge has been designed around that concept ever since.  

Every time something like this is proposed, people start debating it, picking it apart, suggesting changes, suggesting more changes, and half the time nothing is ever decided and the whole thing dies on the vine.  ISLSMR was just such a casualty as those of you who participated several years back will remember.  Everything was decided by committee, so very little was ever actually decided, and every proposal was subject to numerous iterations with even more changes until someone finally got frustrated enough to just grab the ball and run with it.  Anyone involved in club politics for any length of time knows exactly what I'm talking about. 


So to clarify, the question is:  (may we have a drum roll please... ?)

How many are interested in a Steamaholics Golf Shirt based upon the existing graphics as proposed, with the option of having your name and SA# added for an additional fee of $1.50-2.50 per, and embroidered upon a high quality shirt in a color yet to be determined, but apparently not white?

As was originally requested, please respond by clicking on the link in my first post and voting in the poll.  Thanks. :)

I'm still in. What great leadership qualities you possess Dwight :D


Maybe I should be on the ticket eh?? 
  Sorry if I came across stern or cross.  It's just that I'm trying to get something done and I've been there, done that as far as the debate thing goes more times than I care to remember.  :D  I'd last about 5 seconds or less in public office, that's for durn sure!!  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif

Glad to see Mr. Scott is still posting, I thought maybe he had drowned in a Napa Valley wine vat some where.
As Dr. McCoy once said, "God Forbid alcohol ever touch those mathematically perfect brain cells!"  ;)  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

(BTW, Chris and I are friends, so this isn't a personal attack).

Okay, I have talked to an embroiderer and things are moving forward. Once we get an established price and things are nailed down a little more, I will post another update. I will probably create a web-based order form like I did for the old ISLSMR group where people can place an order, select the options they want, specify size, etc.

More to come...
