Ahoy and avast team-maties, friends and vague acquaintances…

(For a summary scroll to the bottom)

So this is mainly for Sydney based players, but anyone is welcome to shoot me a reply. It may be best to email me properly rather than reply here, just because I'm slack at checking replies here etc...

(this is copied straight from email too)

Apologies to all who receive this more than once… I will be spamming as many lists as I can…
As no doubt a few of you are aware a while back I had an absolutely breath-taking idea… Well relatively breath-taking… Well mildly interesting… well one or two of you might care…
The basis of the idea is simple, Frisbee shirts (well shirts of fancy pants sports shirt material) are quite cool and have definitely got their uses both on and off field. On field uses are fairly obvious but another bonus I noticed during the summer festival season was that quick dry sports shirt type shirts are WAY better to have on when bouncing around “in the pit” so to speak. Thus gaining new Frisbee shirts is a fine way of gaining new concert shirts too. Additionally I have found that I have a tendency to accumulate “light” shirts a lot faster than “dark” ones, with “dark” being a preferred option for concerts. This prompted me to begin thinking about where and how I could get another dark shirt, and what I felt would be desirable in said “dark shirt”. There would be three obvious methods to acquire yet another dark shirt, the first being the obvious buy one… a fine plan except I want an extra cool looking one. The second option would be to join a team with awesome dark shirts, but that would take effort, skill and (apologies to all my “dark” shirt wearing colleagues) none of the teams rocking around with dark shirt “blow my mind”. The final option would be to “make the damn shirt myself”, now this option is clearly the best, but has good and bad points. The good being that I could make them as kick ass as I could possibly want, but the bad being that it would be rather expensive to do this for just one shirt.
Now I could try and start a team for one of the various Frisbee things with membership including acquisition of one of these “funkier than the love child of Shaft” shirts. Now that would probably involve even more work than sorting the shirts out, and does limit their availability to just those whom play on the team (which would probably top out around 15-18 people maximum). If I were to make the shirts available to anyone who wanted one (regardless of team) it would (hopefully) increase the number required, thus decreasing the cost for all involved.
So that is the idea at the moment (and now we’ve finally reached the point). I’m going to attempt to get some funky black shirts made up with anyone interested in getting one being offered the opportunity.
And now onto the design itself, as said earlier it will be a black shirt with a positively “more awesome than all the ninja turtles combined” design. I’ve thought long and hard about the design (well I had a brain wave a while back and have remembered it since) and here it is… A jolly roger (or a pirate skull and crossbones symbol if you’re unfamiliar with its actual name) on a black shirt… surely that would be awesome… I’d wear that shirt everywhere, and hopefully others amongst you would agree. Add a number on the back and we’ve surely got the makings of a kick ass Frisbee shirt…
So that’s the plan, a black shirt with a Jolly Roger and a number… Having done limited research I’m pretty sure that FHS is the cheapest and best value for money floating around and I’ve not heard any complaints. It’d be in the ballpark of $40 a shirt (according to my research) which while not being cheap represents value for money when you include the shear awesomeness…
With this all in mind I’ve come up with a plan of attack, if you (like me) have any style whatsoever you will want one of these shirts, and I will attempt to supply you with one. But to do that I need to know you want one, which means you need to contact me somehow… If you received this in an email, you should probably be able to just reply to me, but if you’ve been forwarded this or have seen this posted on the net somewhere you need to know my email address. I’m not foolish enough to go posting my email in such an obvious way that any email detecting spam program can find it so you’re actually going to have to do a little bit of work (if you don’t already know my email). It’s on the afda site (www.afda.com) and you can search for a member. My ACTUAL name is Anthony Richard with an AFDA number of 1926, which means if you are an afda member you can get my email addy and send me your “yes I’m interested in getting said shirt” email. It would be best if you could also include an email addy I can get in contact with you too. Pricing, sizes and preferred numbers can wait till the order progresses onwards a little, right now I’m just registering interest.
On the topic of numbers, we could try and work out a system where everyone has different numbers but that’s a lot of effort, makes people unhappy and I’m just lazy (and can make people unhappy in different ways). So everyone will just get their first preference, because seriously when outside of nationals/uni games do duplicate numbers matter? These shirts aren’t designed to be worn by a team at the elite level (although admittedly seeing a team I’m not on turn up to nationals/mixed nationals in the shirts I thought up without telling me would be hilarious).
So that’s the deal, email me if you’re interested in getting one of these most awesome of shirts… And if you’re out of Sydney/won’t be seeing you for a while don’t count yourself out, I may be gracious and post you it, or just hold onto it until I see you… And of course feel free to forward this on to other email lists (I’m not a part of or sent this to yet) and the like if you think you know people who may be interested in this “once in a lifetime offer”

Love Hugs and Kisses
