The Prototypes are on the way!!! Thanks so much I love the art work you'ev done for the Graboide, I was told that the word need to be slimmed down a bit, but I can do that on this end. I am having the name done solid and the bigger the area the more likely the stamp wont stick down right.
You should have your disc's in just a few days, let me know what you think.
Give me your address again Bro. I'll send you one of each of these disc's and once I do the other run it'll have your Artwork on it and disc well be cleaned up... at that time remind me to send you some of those.
Happy New Year!
I have not been on this site much, too busy w/ work, enovating a house and moving. I hope the presentation in Ionia went well. I used to work Meridian and when driving home from Ionia I would pass Bertha Brock and dream of installing a course there.
I have been in contact with Kent County Parks for 25+ years. Joe Gill, Bob Lanning (RIP) and I made the presentation to the County Commision to get baskets installed at Brewer in 1983 or4. I stayed in regular contact with the head of the Parks Dept. about a location for a course on the north or east side of town. When he offered the land in Fallasburg I was elated. The GRDGC put in a ton of work - and bought the baskets.
I hope thing go well with the project in Ionia.
