Dude chillax... I'm the one that brought the tie idea back...no reason to get all stressed. Jon.
Yes, you are the one. And, once again, Chuck has made a kind offer to donate his time and money to produce such a keepsake for the benefit of the entire membership. And ... once again ... you are volunteering to produce tie designs ... but not ties ... which is exactly what screwed up the idea last time. Don't tell me to chill and not get stressed as a way of avoiding the financial import of my statement. Either offer to produce the ties ... or offer a modicum of respect to the only person who has so far been kind enough to make such an offer ... notwithstanding the fact that there are a number of other members, including me, who could have done so but did not.
Must you keep bringing chuck back as your argument? We are all grateful that he is willing to volunteer his time and resources to do this, and will show our appreciation by indeed purchasing a tie, BUT to mention it over and over again is dÃ©classÃ©. As well, Chuck has offered to sell the ties at cost (quite nice of him to do that), not at a loss, thus please make your argument based on actual facts. There were many reasons why the idea did not come to fruition...not just because people submitted tie designs. How can I possibly produce the ties? What a ridiculous concept. Jon.
