I have been thinking about how to handle Vetter Owners Group patch distribution. I have looked at some other forums, and I have asked a few peoples opinions. Most other forums I have seen sell the patches to anybody on the forum. Seeing that this is a owners group, I feel that the patches should be awarded forum members. I will choose the members that are awarded patches in accordance to a number of different factors.
Such as: Number of posts, forum participation, how long on the forum, Vetter ownership, etc. I will also announce who will be awarded the patches. There is no cost for the patch and I will mail them to a specified address. The fun part is, there are a number of members that have been here from the beginning and have been a large part of our formation. So the first run will be larger.
Our forum is growing due to all of our active members, and I thank everybody that has been part. As time goes on the popularity of the Vetter designs will grow. I already see this happening with the younger people today.
I plan to do special edition patches and anniversary patches as well in the future. T-shirts and maximum achievement awards are also on the plate. We must fly our Vetter flags high!
