DaveOfriend,
I have never met you, but you are a giant sweetheart to be doing this for Dave's family.

Between you and damurf, i am beginning to think that its girls that get all the important stuff done in this world  :thumb:


Hi everyone,

I want to start of by saying how inspiring it is tooo see the overwhelming amount of responses to helping Lauren, Josh, & Jake.  I'm so proud of the bike community that Dave was involved in and I can see how much everyone appreciated him.

I am happy to announce that after speaking with Bob Mcelroy, he is going to begin the T-Shirt process today.  As soon as he is done with the design, he is going to email me the finished product and I will post it on this thread.

T-shirts are going to cost him $7.25 to make.  If you need a double XL it will cost $8.25 to make.  Anything over this for the t-shirts will be a profit to Lauren, Josh, & Jake.  I realize that alot of you have already put money out of pocket for this fund, but keep in mind that Jake is still young and many more expenses to come for the Owen family who is in need of our help.

The sale of the t-shirts will be $20.00 a piece.  This will profit the Owen family $12.75 a piece after paying the cost of the t-shirt to Bob.

Whoever is coming to the funeral that needs t-shirts this weekend, please email me with subject line coming on Sunday at ksouza26@aol.com, as these t-shirts will need to be processed immediately.  Please email me with how many you would like and how much that you paid into paypal.

Anyone who is not attending the funeral, please be patient as I am going to find out what shipping is and we will go from there.

Please forward all payments to ksouza26@aol.com on paypal.  Again, $20.00

More info will be posted of where we can meet to pass out t-shirts to whom is coming.

Any questions please do not hesitate to email me or call me at 508-822-8154

After talking with her a few times, now I know why Dave and her were such good friends.  She is a very sharp lady.  We (ok, she, I can't take much credit here!) changed the the design a bit to a much better layout.  Commuta_Busa also helped straighten out my bad ideas into good ones.

This is all tentative, but so far it looks like this:

The front of the shirt will have "DaveO" and under that the picture of him sitting on the bike.

On the back will be "In Memeory of DaveO (or Dave Owen), 1959-2008"

Then the picture of him in his tuck on the bike,

and underneath that some of his accomplishments as a rider and a tuner.

Great job, Kathy!!!!  Thank you for taking the time to do this and dealing with all the logistics.  She is going to go with an original run of 100 shirts, mainly to accommodate wake/funeral participants.  The leftovers or additional tshirt runs will be to accommodate people who can't make it will be filled afterwards.

The t-shirt guy Bob has been very generous and kind enough to do this without payment up front for his services.  The t-shirts cost him $7.25 each, and we are planning on charging $20.00 each.  This is because the excess money is going to the family, and dealing with $20 bills is a lot easier than having to do $25 or $15 for purposes of change, etc.

Sha had some concern about making so many t-shirts in the event they wouldn't get sold.  Bob the t-shirt guy and her would not want to get left holding the bag and having to go into their own pockets.

When I heard this, I laughed a little bit and told her not to worry about it.  There are plenty of people who are going that would be more than happy to help with the reimbusement costs in the event of an overun, especially my Dad and I.  People with a lot bigger checkbooks than I have, too!  I am actually concerned that we may not have enough, but hopefully Bob the t-shirt guy can run some off at hte last minute if he has to.

By the way, Bob the t-shirt guy is pushing 3 other projects to the back burner to get this done in time for us.  If Kathy would post up his website/email address/address, perhaps we could all email him a note of appreciation, or give him some business in the future if we need t-shirts.

Thanks,

Walt

Well, I want to purchase four (4) but since it's just me who will be there I would only need one (1) and the other three (3) can be done at a later time.

If you cannot paypal you may forward a check to

Kathy Shimkus
16 R Seymour St
Berkley, MA 02779

In the note line on the check please put Dave Owens Memorial Fund.

Or if you are coming and don't have a paypal account and want a t-shirt you can let me know how many through email and then let me know that you will be paying me on Sunday.  Remember that Bob is kind enough to make them for me with my word that he will be paid for the t-shirts. 

Thank you.

If you are coming I will put you down for (4).  That way you will not need to pay for shipping later on.  :O)

It's only the people that are not coming that I will need to make up after.  This is a huge demand so I want to make sure that everyone's orders get filled before the Funeral. 

You guys are awesome!!!!

This is the front of the T-shirt.  Bob said that quality is much better on shirt than may look on this photo after editing.  Because we are short for time the t-shirts need to by blk/wht.  Hope no one minds.

Back of t-shirt to come soon.

Hey Don,

No problem.  A friend of Dave's is a friend of mine.

Don't hesitate to take me up on the offer another time.  We can sit around and swap stories about DaveO!

I am glad you had a safe trip and were able to make it in one shot.

We are only offering xl and xxl.  Just email me at ksouza26@aol.com with how many and your sizes.  this will be easier with short time for production.  Most people can fit in these 2 sizes and don't mind them being big.

Just want to send a quick post to everyone that had requested a few t-shirts with no exact amount.  For production purposes I will need you guys to email me with the exact amount and if you will need them for the funeral or if I am mailing them to you.

Sorry for the confusion but I am dealing with 2 different fufillments.

1 For the funeral
1 For people who want them shipped.

This is why I am asking that you email me directly with exact info.

Thanks so much for all your help.  Again, I know The Owens appreciate it.

The money is already rolling in through paypal.

 :D

put me down for 5 shirts.

I am at a loss of words over losing Dave.  

As soon as I can find the right words, I will post.  There is simply to much pain right now and my head isn't clear.   I have so many memories of Dave.    I spent the past few days prior to maxton speaking to Dave several times per day.   He called me at 1am to tell me he was only 20 min from the hotel and that him and Josh got there safely, and wondered if I got my bike issues sorted.  He asked me to bring a suit and a brake lever for Josh.  Even my reminder note to bring the stuff for dave and Josh makes me tear up right now.  


I will post on the other threads when I find the right words.  

Paypal will go through tomorrow when I get to the shop along with something additional for the family..

I miss you Dave..  I love you man :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
