Just wondering if you got my order Mark A. ?

Also just something I thought would be a fun, and a play on words is to have the saying: "Operation Clean Sweep" put on the shirts, as we are cleaning up the Batfish, and they always put a broom on the periscope shears after a succesful patrol of sinking all ships they fired upon, signifying a clean sweep of all enemy targets. But just an idea, since I am not sure if they charge per word.

yes, I got your order.   Have you not seen the images I posted here already?  They already have that wording on the back of the shirt.  Look back up this thread where I put a link to the Drum thread.  I posted photos there of our last shirt.

Just a reminder, for those I've not heard from yet, if you'd like a Batfish volunteer shirt, please let me know ASAP as I'll be turning in the order on the 5th (next Monday) and hope to have the shirts to the sub on the 17th.  I'll mail the shirt to those that need them mailed for a few extra $$$ to cover postage.

If you leave mine with Rick, I'll give him the money and pick them up on Memorial Weekend.  Thanks.

Thanks to all that wanted shirts.  Order will be placed tomorrow.

You can pick them up at the museum at your convenience.  I should have them there on the 17th of May, assuming the printer gets them to me in time.

Lance, when they are ready, I'll need a mailing address.  Send it via email (ussbatfish@yahoo.com)

Thanks!

As a future suggestion for T-shirts, why not consider something that has the Batfish's battle flag on the back? True, it might cost more because more colors are involved.

A good friend brought me back a Bowfin T-shirt several years ago that had the battle flag on the back only it did not have the standard black background that many flags had but was very good-looking. If I'm not mistaken, Batfish's battle flag was on a white background anyway.

That would bre a good shirt for general merchandise sales.  It sort of reminds people of the Flying Tigers jacket.

Here is an example of what the shirts will look like...more or less...

The printer said that I will have them by Friday the 16th, so I will be bringing them to the park on the 17th.  You can pick them up there.

Lance, I have your address and will mail yours when I get them.

Mark A.

I like it a lot.  Should attract a lot of attention when I wear it... or so I hope.
