        I think that is a super idea... Know any one with a T-shirt business
we could have made them up.  

        My nephew has a machine embroidery business and could embroider
emblems on nice shirts but I have no idea how much they would cost.  Would
you like me to check?  N Bohler

What do you all think about having t-shirts and Sweatshirts made up with our

KAcT logo on them. Could this be done before our first convention meeting. 
It might go along with trying to establish our identity as a seperate and 
autonomous organization.Jsut an idea. Let me know your thoughts.
