... ISTR that they sold well enough for Bob to at least have recouped his
investment.  I still appreciate the fact that Bob Myers went out on a limb
to get that done!

For my tuppence, it seems to me that an anniversary event is different than
for which the stickers were intended ... the stickers were put forth as a
way to get the word out on the existence of the list, and possibly a way for
otherwise faceless qlisters to recognize each other on the road.  

I think the proper way of acknowledging the anniversary is with a T-shirt,
hat or mug ... and I would most definitely be in for at least one T-shirt
... probably more, especially if we make sure that kid sizes were available.
To my mind the cap or shirt would be preferable, as they are things that can
be worn to indicate to others that you are a qlister.  Back for MH99 Tom Nas
brought me a stunning red T-shirt with the quattro logo on the right breast
... I would like to see something like that here ... except with the
Audifans logo on it, and perhaps some catchy anniversary slogan on the back.
I think it would be good to either choose an unusual color for the shirt, or
make the shirt available in a lot of colors (a la IBMWR).  They did some
shirts for us here at work once, and rather than scaling the artwork for the
kiddie shirt they simply used the logo on the front of the larger shirt on
the back of the smaller size.  

... perhaps Jouko's line at the end of his post could be that slogan ...
