For those that didn't see the shirts, they came up with a pretty cool 
design.  At first it's subtle, but then you start looking at the 
speedometer and go " what the hey...?"  As it's up around 160 MPH.  The 
neat thing here is that Jack can change the text on the shirt pretty 
easily to any "fun" saying you want, though I think he's picked some 
good ones.

And for those who may be interested.  The Vendor who supplies the POCA 
Club store has recently put in a garment printer as well, so we might be 
able to start offering more designs on t-shirts.  This allow us to print 
on demand, rather than have to order a whole bunch ahead of time.  
Details are still forthcoming but as I run the store, this looks like a 
great opportunity to expand.

I'll keep you informed,
Asa Jay
