Orange Cloth Strips

Do any of you "old" Alpha's still have any of the orange cloth strips we used to mark ourselves (see some of my photo's in the album section)? I still have my hatband. Let's test your memories; does anyone remember where the cloth came from? The first one to post a correct supply gets to a...

I took mine off and cemented it to my Zippo which I still carry even though I don't smoke anymore. It's so worn after all these years that it's hard to read s...

Re: A pin idea

I am paying for the new site at the moment. It's no big deal or heavy expense to me, but in the long run I would like it to pay for itself. Too bad there is no way to extract the money that Ezboard has that guys contributed. But....one idea that came to me was that I could offer a lapel pin that wo...
