I AM OFFERING IMMORTALITY to the individual who's tee shirt design and copy is chosen for the September, 2016 Insider's Houston Get Together.
Can you imagine the how proud your current or future grandchildren will be knowing it was your design creation on the inaugural Insider's Meeting?
The shirts, donated by that wonderful statesman and immature old man, will be delivered and ready for distribution upon arrival at the JW in Houston.
At this time a committee should be formed to judge the designs that are submitted, choose the winner and supply the artwork to me for production.
The contest is now in your hands.
Misterchk's tee shirt factory
I would like the (yet to be determined) committee to create and publish the rules.
I would also like to suggest you be the first committee member and invite two other attendees to form a three member committee.
Now IAHFLYR with a little creativity you can do better than that .
If all out there want me to make the decision unilaterally, that's up to you.
I will only facilitate the production, cost and shipping. I will not partake in the design.
Let me know and I will at the earliest possible hour publish the rules.
It pains me to officially exclude IAHFLYR from all decisions pertaining to the production and design of the tee shirts.
His behavior I have deemed unacceptable due to his suggestions of Non-Original design.
Sorry sir but it had to be decided.
An official T-Shirt for TIPPLE?
And a design competition. Well clearly it should reflect the event, so...
May I suggest for starters:
Then onto the sophisticates
But perhaps ending up
And a special one for you, misterchk
Any one of the above should reflect TIPPLE very well. (Yes, it will, don't listen to bejacob and his polite convo and hors d'ouvres... It's all about the beer and honking!)
So they're my entries to the esteemed committee!
It pains me to exclude brightlybob of any involvement for the same reasons I have been forced to exclude the gentleman (?) from Texas. Additionally, we need the "copy" to be in American and not English.
brightlybob Ohhh soooo many ideas!!!! What is the deadline? I am doing everything in my power to not be working oh this right now as client needs some signage photoshoped right now... ugh! So distracting.
Official Rules Version 1-2
First official rule:
All artwork must be original - the only exceptions allowed are Marriott Logos.
Artwork must be sent to misterchk in pdf format and sent via the "insider's website"
The creator of the design chosen will be given credit on the shirt.
When submitting your artwork - please include the color of the shirt that you have decided is best with your design.
I'll have more coming! The background is the color of the t-shirt. It's a blue grey.
Front (about pocket size and similar location)

EDIT 2: whoa! ok when you click on them they are HUGE!
EDIT 3: Sorry all - ok Please click on the image for a better resolution.
I was shocked to wake up this morning to find an email from @misterchk advising he'd been banned from the site due to inappropriate conduct and his account disabled. I don't know how long the ban will last but no doubt things will become clearer later. Anyone that wishes to contact Chuck can message me or alternatively post on this thread.
Hmm, maybe I missed something between visits, but hadn't observed anything that I would consider inappropriate conduct. Maybe a bit pointed at times, but anyone following the forums would know what to expect from @misterchk. However I thought he added a lot of value to the discussions. I hope after rehab and counseling he returns to the forum.
Here on Insiders, it is our goal to foster a sharing environment and we value all member’s opinions and ideas. We do have Terms & Conditions for the forum, which apply to both public threads and private messages. We all must adhere to these, abusive language toward other members will not be tolerated.
Very true, but one must also look at the history of both parties involved. There is always more to a story than just one post or even a string of posts. I do respect the difficult complexities of moderation that must be dealt with, but still, the outcome is a disappointment from where I sit. There. I finally said it.
Like you, Pluto, I'm aware of what was said and the history but an outright instant (and what now has clearly become a forever) ban seems to be overkill. Admittedly we don't want this place to become like Flyertalk which can have a very forbidding attitude to new posters, but neither should the mods be banning a helpful, widely well regarded and knowledgeable member so summarily.
This community is all the poorer for MisterChk's absence.
