As proposed sounds just fine to me. So far, gear has been pretty reasonable and a $1 more each would not have been a hardship in any way.

Of course this would happen NOW, after I've already bought all kinds of stuff for the past year, lol.

Bill, Andrew, & Mike,

I think it'* a great idea to add a buck or two on to the items we sell. They are already cheap, and adding the additional buck or so isn't going to stop anyone from buying the items. I'm all for whatever you guys decide. The way I see it, without BC I'd be a bit more clueless than I am now about my car, so go for it! You have my 2 thumbs up

$1 idea is good. Definetly worth it, Items are still priced very attractively.

As much as it'* been said to leave it alone, I know Jeff will be watching this thread, and I personally am in favor of supporting member type roles. Give supporting members bigger PM box, some image space, etc.

I like the idea of $1 being added to things in the store to help this site and take the burden off of Jeff. But what about for going the set $1 and have the extra amount relevant to the cost of what is being bought. i.e. 12% $10 t-shirt adds $1.20

The prices on the store items are quite, quite reasonable now. In fact, I would like to request that you would consider a bit more increase on items. For example, that might mean $2 more for a decal and $4 for a polo shirt. After considerable searching, I think that still maintains an honorable benevolence in the pricing.

One cannot come close to $12/shipped for a content specific graphic decal, nor $32/shipped for a quality polo shirt with embroidery. As an example, Nike wants me to pay $48 for a cotton pique mesh (same quality as offered here) golf shirt for the privilege of wearing their "swoosh".

If the prices negatively impact sales or garners money in excess of operating costs, they can easily be pulled back. It'* harder to keep bumping up, if the intent is to give Mr Keacher a breather from costs.

Also, I want to respect the topic here, but i would also like to comment that the cumulative conducts and intentions of this community are those of many not-for-profit.orgs. If Mr Keacher and the principals here are interested, i could research it further and present for discussion the what, how, and whys in an appropriate place.

As for store items.. I have to have one of those signs "Bonneville Parking Only.. All Other Vehicles Towed".
