Thought it might be a good idea to have identification for the CCB guys and gals at the US Open. If you want one, just let me know how you want your handle and/or name to display and give me your snail mail address. I'll make you up a name badge and mail it to you via the postal service.

Mine looks like this:

P.S. If you have a graphic you'd like added send it to me as an e-mail attachment to dave@syrja.net

What a nice job on those, Dave! I emailed you with all our info. I wish I was as near creative as you!

They look great!

I just thought I would move this post to the top.

My PM is on its way. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

In addition to the files I sent you, I wanted to mention something else:

If you are printing this from home, you might want to re-import a GIF version of the CCB graphic into the badge composition.

I only mention this, because it looks like you took a JPEG (.jpg) and dropped it in, due to the pinkish, rectangular halo around the 'logo'. This might not be noticeable on a printout, and I'm just being picky, but I thought I'd mention it.

As for the badge design itself, depending on the final size and such, I might suggest a matching yellow border, just to frame the tag. Then again, it might not look that good when printed. . . .



~~still not really a designer

Heater,

Got your files. Unfortunately, neither my version of Adobe Photoshop (5.0 Lite) or Paintshop Pro (5) recognize the .EPS format. If it isn't too much trouble could you please send it in .PSD or some other format?

Thanks for the tip on the .jpeg files and the pink halo. I will convert to .gif if necessary. I apologize for not asking your permission to use the logo. I think it is great and will also be using it for the round robin forms and charts, with your kind permission.

I'll be printing these at home on my BJC-8200 printer so they should look reasonably decent. I wasn't going to have a border, but I'll try a yellow one and see what it looks like when a badge is made up.

Rather than reply to everyone individually and raise my posting count, here are the names I already have for badges. (in no particular order).

Karatemon
Chris Cass
Spike
Socrates
Deeman
Brian Keller (need your snail mail address)
Cueball1950
Rich R.
Mrs. Rich R.
Wally in Cinnci
Kato

Please let me know early so I can get your badge out in the mail. I'll bring some blanks with me, but I'm not arriving until Thuesday evening.

When and where is the CCB Open? Since joining the ranks of the unemployed, I'm taking the summer off to have fun and hit balls, and may actually be able to make it this year...

We are all going to the U.S. Open in Chesapeake, Va. in September. Last year we had a little tournament for the CCB'ers, so this year we are having the

Second Annual International CCB Tournament.

Sounds impressive doesn't it? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

We really just have a lot of fun. It will be held on Saturday, September 20th.

Is this the Q-guy? The secretive anonymous cue maker that everyone knows who he is but me who hasn't posted here in over a year? You mean he's still lurking around and actually sent you a PM from his Q-guy CCB account?

I was just thinking about him recently. Did he include any other words - like where he's been or what he's been up to or if he's ever going to come back and post again? I miss him.

Susan, Q-Guy probably lives 15 minutes from me and I've never met the man. I know where he plays, Phil and Voodoo know him but we don't seem to run in the same circles. Rest assured I'm looking forward to meeting him.

Conversation between Wendy and Kato at the door.

Kato: Wendy, why don't you take this lovely Blackheart cue

9-ball girl: Why Kato, thank you. Take this Tailsman Case

Kato: You may want this $50 cash bonus for your hard work

9-ball girl: Wow, that's nice of you, perhaps you'd like the Fantasy 9-ball package

Kato: Absolutely, just for that you can have 4 years worth of inside pool

9-ball girl: Here Kato, take these excellent Tailsman tips. I'm sure you'll put them to great use.

Kato: For your generosity Wendy I present you with both the first and second place trophies. You've earned them.

Kato..........'Tucky...........Tot aka "Door Man"

Kato,

This is sounding a little too Bill Clintonish to me. Both of you will be frisked before and after the event!

Out of purely platonic concern for her, I will search 9 ball girl and let some of the other members search you. That is, unless, you can set me up with a couple of nice prizes in advance.
