Identifying GLB members at the show
« on: January 03, 2010, 09:00:23 AM »

A few years ago, we put into practice the habit of wearing red hooks at shows and such. 
That way, we could identify other GLB members and introduce ourselves. 

At the Wonderland Spring show a couple of years ago Dan had them for sale.
I don't know if he even does that anymore, but if not, you can make one by dipping an old dull hook into red jig paint, or raid the little woman's red nail polish and touch one up. 

I wear mine on my hat.

Of course an even better idea is to purchase and wear proudly GLB hats, shirts, etc. from the GLB store.  This helps Dan fund the website, and it would help us attract new members as we walk around the show.

They don't make Nemisis shirts big enough for guys like LaPorte and me.  So I won't get any free tackle from them.  I feel cheated.   :'(  I figure if I wine enough about it, eventually I may get a shirt and a hoodie in a XXL.  "Squeaky wheel gets the grease."  But I will be stopping by the GLB booth to purchase a hat if they are available in black with the yellow/orange logo.

Some pros have contracts where they wear this hat and that shirt during these times... maybe you could switch hats and/or shirts every two hours? ;D

I will not be carrying a bunch of t-shirts and hats at the show. Maybe only  2 or 3 of each. Too much to do with everything else to get ready for the show and an upcoming trip, and holding on to inventory is expensive. I'll have a very few to give away randomly to people at the show. Very limited this time around. I may have some 14" decals if the printer hurries.

I'm out of the red hooks and haven't looked for another batch in a while. Sorry. I tried to get Danny to tattoo the logo on his forehead since he is getting rids and stuff at the show, but he wouldn't do it. Probably not feasible for anyone else ;D

Part of the goal of being at the shows is to sign up more members. Eventually, if we could make them ALL members, then we wouldn't have to wonder!! Easier that way, but yes, my work is cut out for me. :D

fiker, thanks so much for the kind words.

You could get something similiar to an ignition interlock breathalyzer device put on repeat offenders computers - MADP Mothers Against Druck Posting would surely be supportive. :D :D :D :D

Earlier today I discussing some type of keyboard locking device with someone. I was thinking about maybe a broader use for it yet, but we were unable to come up with a workable solution at this time.

Don't count on it!!!   :o    Although there are UAW workers in California that assemble Toyotas.  I don't think they're Tundras though.  But still...........Don't count on it!!!    ::)
