4680FJ&G Picnic & Tee Shirts
- Jun 28, 2001Group,
I plan on making the get-together in August. I'm currently doing two
weeks of 24x7 on-call for others, so they owe me!
Questions I should have raised before last night's meeting -
Question 1: Any plans to hire a hall to show slid
es/movies/videos/pictures on that Saturday nite? I'll kick in for
the rent, as I'm sure others would. Those of you who have seen the
stuff before will probably yawn a lot, but most of it will be new to
someone. Me, at least.
Question 1a: Anyone bringing a 35mm projector? If so, what kind of
trays will it accept? I'm planning on bringing my slides, so I could
bring my Kodak, which only takes Carousel trays.
Question 2: Where and when do we meet intially on Saturday? The
Rail Park in Gloversville? The Adirondack Park marker at Sacandaga
Park? Randy's basement?
Question 3: For the picnic: what about a special tee shirt
commemorating the First Annual Meeting of the FJ&G Railroad Barbeque
and Marching Society. The marching? Hey, we gotta walk part of the
rail trail, don't we? My thought was to have a high-quality picture
of #8 as the centerpiece, with appropriate lettering indicating
its100th birthday, plus the date(s) for the First Annual Meeting. I
wouldn't want to undertake this one without firm orders, though.
Question 4: Wouldn't Gino's stylized Bullet Car design make a great
limited-edition tee? Changing the heading to "FJ&G Bullet" makes the
railroad name obvious. My stepson just had thee dozen done locally
for his martial arts studio (3 colour) and selling them at $15
each,his break even point was 19 shirts. The more colours, the
higher the setup costs. We could do this on spec, offering it
through the eGroup listing, Randy, Gino, and other outlets you can
think of. Mail order would be an additional $4 or $5for P&H.
Let me know what ya' think.
