    People keep saying we need them to show our unity and rejection of concessions but it hasn't gone farther than the idea. Let's change that.

    I need 3 things:

    1. An idea for the printed message. Someone suggested and I liked: "The concession stand is closed." Any other ideas?

    2. A color choice for the band. Probably black, red, or grey. Choices??

    3. A few people to throw in $15 to help divide the cost and then distribute these. $15 would get you 100 bands to give out to pilots for free. I'm not interesting in myself or others buying and selling these. I'm talking about a few people willing to spend a few dollars with me to get these out to the pilots for free. Any takers??

    While I like "The concession stand is closed." due to its wit, I also feel quite strongly that we should walk lockstep across the industry. That being said, while I hate the red wings, I would go with red, but having the Beagle "No Thanks" and we get a few RAH guys to do the same with a good color to represent them. Rather than bitching out other pilot groups, in our race to the bottom, maybe we could start a cross-platform movement to show that we ALL think enough is enough. Mesa will never be able to hire enough pilots to replace even us, never mind us, RAH, and Beagle.

    If we don't stand together, we fall apart.

    Something bright and noticeable. Red, yellow, orange and the like. "Consession stand is closed" is good, but may get lost in type, having to read all the way around the band, however, people that know what it is, will know what it means.

    I agree. The typed message isn't nearly as important as lots and lots of pilots being seen wearing these.

    I could look but you'd prob have a harder time getting guys to wear them. You know, die hard FOM followers and it not allowing off brand lanyards.

    Just a quick search, it looks like they're about $186 for 100.

    There's at least 2 other threads with guys wanting to do stickers so I'm gonna stick with bands. I think they are the cheapest and most visible way to get a lot of people on board and seen.

    I'm willing to eat $50-$75 in band costs so I'm looking for around $100 in help from people in whatever increments guys want to pitch in for. The quantity vs cost gets basically 100 bands for $15. So at that price and buy-in I'm hoping for about 7 people to join up.
    Sounds like red is a good color choice but still undecided on the message. It's 14 days or less from order to delivery time.

    We should coordinate with 'stop the whip saw' - They may have some ideas in mind. We could proffer a more dramatic effect if all the regionals sported the bands.

    75 bands or 75 dollars? Cause if you're gonna do $75 yourself I'll order these things tomorrow and just hope I find enough others to not get stuck with all the rest.

    Booya, ok so you get the final decision on color and message then. Popular vote on color sounds like red. Message; not sure. "Stop the whipsaw" or "No concessions" or both or someone suggested "The concession stand is closed."
