Or if it's that inexpensive, does getting two flags make sense? It might make it easier to keep it on tour. Plus if there is no formal shakedown (like in NYC) maybe one flag can be stationary and a second can circle the area? Just a thought. (I don't see much difference between putting in $5 or $10).

Hey I just saw the design. Why skulls and skeletons Are you devil worshiping freaks?

The church may not be happy with us if we worship the devil. They are already upset that I "accidentally" touched myself once or twice. Ah, the heck with it, I'm going to hell in a bucket. But at least I'm enjoying the ride.

If we really could do a true double sided flag, I have no problem donating the ten instead of five.
Even if we had to sew it together ourselves. But I'm going to leave last minute decisions like that
to Strider, since he's the one stepping up, and making the effort.

Looks like we have $140 pledged so far. That should do it. If more is needed, we will reimburse you.

my suggestion is that if we come up with too much money, just donate the remainder to the Unbroken Chain Foundation.

Volare,

PM sent.

Looks like I won't make it today, so if there is any final revisions you (or we) want to make, now is the time.

I just need to receive it by noonish tomorrow.

just sent it to you. unless someone comes up with something better, I don't think it needs anymore changes.

They also said that the double sided flag requires a "blocker" sheet between them to avoid bleed thru, and extra stitching.
They also said that it doesn't fly as well, and gets beat up in the wind quicker due to a "billowing" effect.

If we have extra money, we could use it to get a second flag and/or flag pole for it.

enless anyone wants the extra to go to the new Robin Sylvester fund - I know he's not in Furthur but a good guy in need of medical help that contributed a lot to the GD community... www.sweetrelief.org/program/robin-sylvester-fund/

I'm in for 10!

I didn't vote either - they all look good to me, great work everyone...

By my totals, we have 150 pledged. I love the idea of any extra going to a worthy charity. I approve of both mentioned so far.
Again, I trust strider to make any last minute decisions that need to be made. I wouldn't mind having two. Or if you only want
to go with one, that's cool too. The rest could be used for some kind of pole to attach it to. Doesn't need to be fancy.

Strider1 or ? If you'd like money sooner, please either PM us / me and I'll send it right out. I'd suggest trying to collect as much now rather than waiting until you meet up with people on tour. This way you have a better chance of getting the $.

I am really excited about this. Great work!

I think Platy is taking the money. Oops!

I can collect it from everyone or anyone at Broomfield.

If you're not making it to Broomfield, not a problem.
We can always catch up in Boston, Wallingford, NYC, or Wanee, as I'll be at all of them!

Thanks for the concern about collecting the money.

I'm not really that worried about it.

I have faith in the Furthur Forum Family that I will collect enough.
And I hope that the Furthur Forum Family will have faith in me to donate any extra funds received.
