Good day everyone,

Sean and I are working to bring you an APUG Baseball Cap through a “store front” that he is working on.

I would like to get an idea of the number of folks that would be interested in purchasing one.

The hats are 100% cotton, adjustable size. They appear to be quite well made. They are grey with dark blue embroidery work.

The way I would like to work this, is that perhaps 20% of the sale price will go directly to Sean to assist in maintaining the site. These hats would be reasonably priced, and the more folks that order the better pricing I can get from the manufacturer.

All I am looking for at the moment is a idea of interest. There is no commitment being made by you in indicating interest.

Please see the images below, and use the poling feature to indicate interest. If you have comments please feel free to post them here or pm or email me.

Thank you

Peter Dendrinos

I look stupid in a hat. Which is not to say I look smart w/o one.

Hi Peter,

I think the word "photography" needs to be spelled out somewhere on the hat, and "analog photography" would be even better. Then, someone might ask, "What is APUG, and what does it have to do with photography? And what the heck is analog photography?"

Otherwise, APUG is just some meaningless acronym for who-cares-what. One man's opinion...

BTW, I would pay an amount over and above what you probably have in mind for a really nice cap! :)

Rats! Ma head's too big for most baseball caps, but I'd really like to have an apug one. Trouble is, nearly no one knows what an APUG is so they'd look at my head even more attentively than they otherwise might. They might think it meant "Aggressive Pyromaniac Using Gasoline" or something and I'd get hauled before the 'let's not let that freedom of expression nonsense go too far' board of busibodies....so.....I'll have to pass on this one!

i agree the had would need something more spelled out, like analog photography. Emphaize "Analog" i don't want some digital person walking up to me saying something stupid like "we photographers should stick together" i dunno. seems like a good idea though. i'd buy one, sure, i need a cap anyways. :)

I have a big collection of baseball hats. I'd be interested in one as long as we can barter for it. :)
I'm just hoping Pug owners don't come up to me and ask me if I have a Pug. I have a mutt which I tried to name Distagon but my wife didn't like that. At least, I got to name my new car Rocinante.

A cotton baseball cap, no Way!

A Wool Baseball cap just fine.

Cotton won't hold its shape, will instantly form itself to the shape of your head making you look like a member of some misdirected D---tal camera society!

Be Cool, Wear Wool!

No caps for me. Too much hair.

The rational for the Cotton is that they will be cooler and breath better than wool in the heat of summer.

lol !! mrcallow....I feel the same way, but started to wear baseball hats about 10 years ago or so, no just use em when I go out on the weekends to cover up the wild hair look on the weekends. Besides, glad to have hair these days, funny how much less I worry about these things as I get older.

Just be sure the gray does not clash with the gray of the hair... ;)

I'll take 2, I have NO hair!

FWIW just "APUG.org" is what I'd prefer, much cooler and besides even my head is not big enough to handle ANALOG PHOTOGRAPHY!
(I would however love it if a luddite elitest cap were made available!)

I would like to say that I have one of these hats already and they are quite nicely made. Got it from Peter this past weekend at our meeting in Clare, Michigan. I think his intent is just to see if there is enough interest to warrant a purchase out of his own pocket to get the ball rolling. If they sell,then who knows, we could end up with a variety of hats.

I'm interested. Also, it looks like there's some kind of unwritten rule that North Texas apuggers must wear baseball caps, if you notice from my shots of the first north TX apugger get-together:

I'm not choosy. It looke like a nice cap. APUG on it it just fine, don't get too wordy - it drives the cost up. Maybe choice of colors - black or white! People that live in a hot zone get a white one, cold zones black and temperate, get one of each.

Did you mention the cost? I won't pay a lot for this muffler.

Poor rationality in my mind, wonder why real baseball caps are made out of wool? It coulden't possibly be because when you sweat the wool absorbs the sweat and the air flowing through it is cooling. Do many Arabs wear cotton? Not to worry however, do what you think is best! I won't be buying a cotton cap during my lifetime! At any price!

I'd love to add this hat to my modest collection.

And although I do agree that having "Analog Photography" on it would be nice, it may be a little too much for a hat?

To add a little more (or less), could it be anything but blue? I have a real aversion to that color. I would buy one if it had to be blue, but if it was done with black or so, I would buy a few...
