>I have a basic tabbard made (doesn't have the design on it yet) in red
trigger with the black trim. It has a keyhole neck that is trimmed around
the neck and down the front slotted part of the key.  I suggest leaving off
this front verticle trim - it will look better without it once the design is
on the chest portion.
>I have been looking for some yellow-gold trigger for the flame, and it is
not nearly as easy to find as the red and black colors.
>Also, there was some talk of a reasonable number of LR, especially those
involved in the archery at defender, all wearing forest green tunics for the
event. The Lake Worth Wal-mart just got in two 25 yartd bolts of $ 1.67 per
yard broadcloth in this color. Forest Green is considerably darker than the
Kelly Green you usually see.  Are people still interested in this? I will
help with some sewing.
>Putting together several Robin Hood style hats if red/black counterchanged
colors, with a yellow feather for range officials, etc to wear was also
discussed. Does anybody have a pattern for these hats? I cannot find my hat
pattern book.

voted on last summer.  Each member of the company should try to make his/her
own tabard (or negotiate with someone to make it for you).  The basic tabard
is red with one inch wide black edging around the borders and neck-opening.
A medium weight trigger should prove best for durability.  This weekend, I
will draw up the emblem for the front and back (black star in a yellow
circle, with our flaming ember on the star) in proper size (about 9 inches
across), and cut out templates so that we can all make the emblem the same
size.  I'll let everyone know when they are ready.
