I have to admit I did like the symmetry of the logo with www and .com........BUT
I'm liking the BritBike all by it's self. We did this before to promote the site......I have a feeling this time around folks are going to know what BritBike is and these are more of a thank you than a promotion.
I'd like to hear more opinions before I order........Gordon
Top logo is the newer version...........what say you?????? Do it need the .com added?
Okay I know this is a lot of wasted space on Anna's thread but this is about her even if it's in a round about way......so bear with me. We'll get this one sorted and then work on her pin. All the while we're waiting on a report when David meets with the Motts........did we make his goal???????
I am beyond proud to announce that we were able to raise over $5,000 for Anna this Christmas!
Thank you to the core group, who always come through for the girl. You all are the best.
Thank you to the first time donors. I appreciate it!
This would not have happened without your help. Your cards and gifts are appreciated more than I can say.

Melissa and her family not only are thankful for the gifts, but in some ways Melissa is even more grateful that you all still remember her Anna five years out. Knowing others still think about Anna is a great comfort to her.
I've been waiting for David to report in and I think he'll do that today since I think he met with the Motts last night?
But......I would like to go ahead and order these today.
The BritBike pin is Morgan's new logo. I'm using the older Logo on the Mott's pin.
I would like to hear some feedback on the pins before I order. I'm getting 200 of the BB pins and 100 of the Motts.......50 of the BB pins will go to Morgan....the rest are giveaways, just ask. "Friend of the Motts" pins are giveaways too.....and I'll work it out with David on how I get them to Donors.
Old or new logo.....what say you all?

Gordon they look very good, new or old logo both works the only thing is that one must use the illustrator format .ai not the .gif as .gif will be pixly but I believe you have control on that. Good work broder!!!
Morgan, I've asked that they do one more option and do the "Anna" pin with the new Logo........I'll post it as soon as I get it.
I'm liking the pins so far.......already purchased a bunch of bubble envelopes so I can start sending them out as soon as I get them. Once they are ordered I'll start taking requests. John already spoke up and I'll send him as many as he wants.......still no charge, he's one of the good guys.
I'm hoping I get some feedback from the UK........you know who you are and you know I'm listening.
To put my own twist to one of Mike Carter's friends sayings......"Once the Motts are in your life, they're there to stay"
It's been over 5 years since this all started but it seems like it was just yesterday David asked us to post Purple Photos.

Last Tuesday night, I had the privilege to present our gift to the Mott family.
As she often does, Melissa says it better than anyone-
It has been over five years. And there is a group of you who continue to walk this road beside us, holding our hands and helping us up. And I just want you to know that it means literally everything. Everything.
Okay folks........here is the "Anna" pin with Morgan's new logo......I'm going to go ahead and use his new logo for both pins.
It's going to take 30 days or so for me to get them back but I'll start taking requests. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your address. I'm going to make the limit at 5 pins each for the BritBike pins and 2 for the Anna pins. If I send you 5 BritBike pins I'm hoping you'll give a couple away.
The only other thing I ask is....... we keep it on this thread for now.
I'm going to work with David to get pins to past Donors. I'll let him send them out to those of you that want to keep your ID under wraps......no worries there. If that's the way you want it we'll be sure to keep it between just you and David. For the rest of you.......you didn't have to donate anything to get the BB pins....just ask....no worries there either. After the first go-around, and if I have any left, I'll offer them to the rest of the board members....but for now I'm just doing this for the folks that keep up with this thread.
That's it..........thanks to all of you that helped.....we'll be back for her birthday. Until then I won't be bothering you anymore.
Take care.......your friend in NC Gordon Gray who's proud to be a "Friend of the Motts"
PS.....the BritBike pin looks like the Anna pin without the ribbon and the Friend of the Motts. Both pins have the brooch (sp?) attachment.
Yes broder, I agree. I thought your new logo would be too big for the Anna pin but it looks good IMO. Make sure you send me your current mailing address and when they come in I'll make sure you get yours. I really like the BritBike pin.........as a members only gift I can't see why it needs the www or the .com. Makes those older pins even more rare.....hahahahahahahahhahahaah.
Going to take about 30 days for the turn a round.......once I have them I'll post real time photos of the results and start mailing them out. First come, first served....get em while you can.
Thank you for letting us do this.........din BSA broder in NC, USA Gordon
Let me clear up a misunderstanding......sorry for the confusion
There will be two (2) types of pins made.
1. A "BritBike" pin 2. A BritBike "Friend of the Motts" pin
The "Friend of the Motts" will be sent free of any charges to ALL the donors past and present......so if you have ever donated ANYTHING you get a pin. That means even if you donated something for the yard sale we had a few years back......you get a pin. So that flame thrower Steve put up for the yard sale counts. It doesn't matter if you gave a $1 or a $100.......it all counts the same. I'm going to limit those to 2 per. BUT if you're like Bryan and Marie......who are a team.....that's 4 to that address if they want that many. IF I run out and I hope I do......I'll have more made and if you donate from now on and want a pin....it's yours shipped free of charge.
The " BritBike" pin is for ANYBODY.......no donation required at all. Don't be shy.....just send me your address and I'll send you some up to 5 per address. WHY am I doing this? Because I want to give you something for at least following this thread. Maybe if you haven't given in the past you'll give something next time....but you don't have to. Once I feel like everybody following this thread has had time to ask for a pin/s if they want some......I'll offer up what's left over to the rest of the board.....same deal, no charge.
It's better to give than receive........if you know me, you know that's the way I roll.
IF you've ever donated ANYTHING and want a "Friend of the Motts" pin (BritBike pin/s will tag along too) PLEASE let me or David know and we'll be sure you get one.
Sorry to have taken up all this space on this thread.......but once you get me started it hard to get me stopped.
I'm working on a list of those folks I need to get an "Anna" pin to. All you had to do is contribute to this thread.....photo, reply, donation, anything that helped.....and believe me, it ALL helped. I'm still working on getting the names off the tank Robert did and was signed by bb.com members so this list is still a work in progress. Pins were ordered Friday and I should have them in by the end of the month. If you're one of the "Anonymous" donors and don't want me to have your name and address.....and you want a pin just let David know and we'll get it to you. This list is in no particular order. I went through all 33 pages of the thread several times to get what names I have.......it was a nice journey back through time.
Let me know if I left you off and if you want a pin just drop me a PM or contact me at email@example.com. Pins will be sent to you at no charge......limit at 5 BritBike pins and 2 "Anna" pins per address.
For those of you that are planning to attend this year's (2018) TSMR I can get your pins to you there and save me the packaging and postage.
Thanks again for your help with this.........Gordon in NC
My Anna pin will be right next to my Katie ribbon. Both young ladies I have become attached to from a distance
Katie was a "poster child" for a charity for medically fragile children care and their adoption. I met her at about age 5, before any surgeries. Katie had an issue with her gut, and had to have 5 organs transplanted. Twice...in short order.
When she was 13, I was blessed with giving her her first lesson riding a small dirt bike on a grass track, at an offroad benefit ride for the charity.
At the age of 16, it became apparent that she would need another 5 transplants, as the 2nd set were failing. Imagine, at the age of 16, making the choice of no more surgeries.
Rest in peace Katie.
