Just think the DLB logo stands on it's own with nothing added. Just my $.02.

I have no ill feelings for the "Du Ya" guys. Actually appreciate the effort made to produce the shirts.

Du ya dlb?

59 views and no comments. I guess I'm an island and my views are not shared by DLB. Sorry for bringing it up. If the DLB is comfortable being partnered with "Du Ya" name/logo who am I to argue.

Looking forward to the next run.

I am sure I think similar to you, but I don't know what you are talking about. Is this something new on the T-Shirts? A new batch of T-Shirts?:confused:

I didn't realize they had the Du Ya on them. I know he put some time in and got the shirts going...and they don't look bad with the Du Ya. Did he subsidize the price of the shirts?

Yes that does help, but it wouldn't help me buy it. I agree. What's wrong with what we had. I'm going to take real good care of what I have. It might become a collectors item.;)

My 2 cents.......feel free to edit

First a brief history
The dlb is a loosely organized bunch of friends/boating enthusiasts meeting since early 2000 ??
Everybody agreed on the dlb name 2006-2007??
First dlb approved logo (my sig) by Seth maybe 2008 or so.
Final improved and approved logo by DSI Dan (ck his sig) shortly after Seth's.

I personally don't think anyone should be taking creative license with the dlb name/logo unless any proposed changes have been approved by a majority of the dlb founding plank holders/members. This could be done at any approved and sanctioned event (not) such as any planned run where a majority of dlb members could look over and approve/veto said changes. While all members ideas/opinions are welcome and appriciated, newbies should not be fu*king with the Chi............carma dudes :)grn

I couldnt agree more,this has and always will be for fun and should not be used to make money.I know what it cost to make shirts,someone made some cash!!!! I'm not against making money but not with someone else's logo. If I did a Smooth as Glass/DLB shirt,I would give them away as advertisement.My .02

There have been a few changes, all were requested and then voted on and commented on in these forums. Jen had some shirts made for the girls, she charged even money, and I gave a few away, so that endeavor cost me. I think 707 Dog, had the last batch made, same thing posted up and voted on them, charged what seemed like even money.

I like what Jeff said, and would go a step further, if one of the OG companies from this loose bunch wanted to co-brand and then charge to cover his cost, then I wouldn't have an issue with it. I don't know who/what a DuYa is? Am I just out of it?

I seem to remember some Poker Run Promoter guy, that...Oh never mind. :)hand

Du Yah

I have nothing to say about Steve, but my first thought was "Do we have a corporate sponsor now"?

I have not had the best of luck with these shirts. First batch, paid for and never received the shirt for my wife. Second batch, wife shirt is too manly.

Sorry for late response

To all the DLB'rs... I havent been on here in a bit dealing with too much work and such, but I am the person that got involved in this fiasco which I thought was just bringing good people together. There were alot of people asking about t-shirts (myself included) I called a few DLB people and asked what I could do to get something going. They said go for it, theres no Board or Council that had to ok anything and all i did was facilitate it. Knowing Steve at DUYA could bring together projects quickly I asked him to take it on. His "DuYa" idea is just a simple one that asks a question? DO YOU...... do anything? Im the one that came up with "Duya lunch with the delta bunch" -thinking it sounded kinda hip or cool or what ever, but it was not in trying to get the DUYA name or logo or anything like that connected to the DLB. it was a simple saying....

Nobody had any ill intent... in trying to infringe on copyrighted logos, trying to incorporate DLB with anybody else, trying to step on anyones toes or even making money off of this, I asked for the best Steve had to offer, that cost money, I asked him to have it done in 4 days, that cost money. We didnt have any artwork to work from, so that cost money again. we had to start from scratch, all over again. And NOBODY got rich off this meager 50 shirt deal. I'll buy the beer the next time we get together, cause thats about what I made for my troubles to get these shirts to ya'll.

So Im sorry for the DUYA thing, Im sorry if ya'll dont like it, and Im sorry for getting involved with the entire t-shirt thing at all.

Im most sorry to Steve because he had nothing to do with this and it is being played out here that he was behind trying to get HIS LOGO in front of DLB without permission and that was my fault not his. So I apologize for getting him involved with any of this.

I like my DuYa DLB t-shirt and and sweatshirt and I will wear them proudly because I DO DLB!:)devil

Duya

Still nothing to say about Steve, or PTC. For myself, I was suprised about the DUYA, and just letting my problems known. Still bought the shirt, and would again. Proudly diplay my alliance to the DLB. I'll just try not to get wine or oil on it this time.

Good to hear the explaination. Nice to know the facts. Sounds like people just trying to make it happen. Good intensions. Sometimes it just goes the wrong way. The worst it can do is effect sales. Some of us won't want the new look. Probably no harm in the verbage. It isn't derogatory to the DLB. So my opinion is no harm, no foul.;)

Dog

Hey 707DOG. I need a couple more of those big fit style shirts you had last time. Oh yea.... Can you deliver them to Fremont again? And can you have the old "Any Weather is Boating Weather" thingy on it again above the logo? That was kinda cool.

Hey PTC... don"t think to deep into it. Words typed on the internet are not always as they seem or to be taken seriously all the time. Hell, my nephew is a hot 19 year old girl on damn internet. :smoking-cannabis-03
