I think Bob mentioned making the design a single color in order to keep costs down. So what ever design you guys agree on make sure it works in single color.

I would gladly pay extra for a shirt to offset the cost of extra colors.

I'm seconding Pete on this. What with transportation, food, any fees for flying, and a room if I want to do more than Saturday's Tribute, what's a few more bux for a first-class shirt?

And I'm an old phart on Social Security, so you know that I consider this to be a Special Thing. I'm willing to sacrifice so I can be there, and I can't see going to it and not having a really nice shirt to wear. I'll bring PBJ's and skip the hamburgers so I can pay for a shirt that will do Katie and Bob proud.

We only go around once, notwithstanding what the Swami says, so let's have us a party. Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

P.S. I still like my shirt idea, where Katie watches from her cloud as her Hobie is launched off the cliff. But I'm no artist....

It amazes me how good they're getting with using tech to create images that look just like a real photograph. Maybe there's a student of that stuff who needs a project, Give him or her a glider and lessons in trade for a cool design.

Legends to attend the Katie Tribute


More good reasons to attend the 2018 Katie Martin International Tribute in Torrey Pines. It appears that Bob Novak, famous Radio Manufacturer and Larry Jolly are planning on attending this years Katie Tribute. Maybe they will be kind enough to allow some of us to get pictures with them.... I know I look forward to meeting and maybe even get to fly with these storied industry legends....Boy , this is going to be great!

Hi everyone...I follow the Hobie Tales thread and there are a lot of new people saying they are coming to this years Katie Tribute...that is great....I had this crazy idea of a shirt with Katie looking down on us ( and I know she does) with a picture of the attendees from last year....just a thought....needs some work but what do you think? Any other ideas.... we need to finalize by the end of the month.....let me know.

I had thought before about Katie looking down and smiling at us having fun in her behalf. When I read Steve's post, I started to think about it again and instead of her launching a single aircraft, SR-7, Katie or Hobie, I thought she and you would like her smiling down on US the people enjoying her tribute......
I am no artist either and there are things like type that I would like to change....if this is chosen as this years image, I will have someone more talented than I to finalize it.

I created this in a single color because last year we barely broke even on shirts and the idea of the tribute is to honor Katie and make money for her favorite charity.
