Maybe I missed it but have there been any advance announcements regarding Kubel Treffen East 2017?

I attended last year's event and had a great time and I'm looking forward to attending again this year if my schedule will allow.

Thanks...

We will have info in a couple weeks. Plan on having it in Corydon IN. mid July. If not there it will still be around Louisville KY. Corydon is about 30 miles west of Louisville. The host is Ron & Dennis, The Domeck Brothers.

Thanks for the info Ron. Don't know if I trust my Thing for that long of a drive but I'll try to be there with or without it. Please keep us posted!

Thanks Mike, but I don't think anybody will want my picture on their t-shirt (not even anybody in my own family)!

Just another half-a-year to go, and I hope to see y'all there!

LOL that's the truth there though, it'd be an adventure!

Just a personal note on the t-shirts, graphics on the front make our bellys' look larger that we really are! Very Happy

I vote for graphics on the back of the t-shirt!

PS: Gary if I can make it and you make some of those shirts, I'd buy one! Razz

That's a good point about graphics on the back Tom.
Last time I wore an orange t-shirt, my wife said I looked like the great pumpkin!

For me, driving my Thing to KTE is a big part of the fun. You guys have seen my car, and it won't win any awards, but it has always made it to several KTE's and back without incident (including an 800 mile run from Branson, MO to Detroit in one day).

Just about 100 days to go 'til I can drive it again Smile

We like Things there in any shape. Put it on a tow bar so we can see what you have. We have had rolling pans, bare metal bodies and one towed in by a golf cart.

I don't think anyone would recognize it was a gathering of Things unless it was explained to them.

Can you make the profile of the car more of the image?

I think a burnt orange would be a more favorable color than a bright orange. Bright colored shirts that don't look well outside of the shirt usually are relegated to cutting the grass shirts.

My idea was to use a Thing color for the shirt color.

The final decision for the shirt color and graphics lies with Ron & Dennis.
I plan to furnish them with several designs and they will pick whatever they like.

I keep un-worn KTE shirts in plastic bags as souvenirs, so I'm out of the loop except as a "collector".

Last year there were either 36 or 38 entries, so let's all do our best to keep the trend going and shoot for 40+ cars in 2017!

Just 5 months to go; hope to see y'all there,
Mondshine

I think either t-shirt would be fine, but those photo examples look like large enough photos for a back of a t-shirt.

(remember big pictures on t-shirt fronts make for big belly syndrome!) esp when the shirt shrinks! Shocked

But, I did some quick reading, being Indiana is known for:

Being the crossroads of America
Hoosiers (which would look good as logo's on the Things tires)
actor James Best (aka Rosco P Coletrane from the Dukes of Hazzard) was raised in Corydon, IA.
Maybe there could be a cop car in the distance?

Or the state seal with a THING in the background jumping the sun over the mountain maybe?? Smile

Anything is probably fine, but those are just examples of some state/site of show themed references that could look cool on the shirt too.

I'm still mulling how I'm going to get there, 2 day drive or towbar again. Rolling Eyes

Good luck with however yall choose.
