5; t-shirt (otherwise, hat)
Eve - 7/21/2008 8:35 AM

Okay we will have a number 5 item to consider, a half moon patch that has the logo and for each dive marker you acheive you get a number patch to add to the half moon patch.

So number 5 to vote on is a patch, you can sew it in your t shirt.

5. Patch

2. I need a doo-rag anyway... i’d wear it while riding my motorcycle
tardmaster - 7/21/2008 9:04 AM
i vote (a hundred times) for the patch !!!!
dalehall - 7/21/2008 9:28 AM

I will have to go with the patch (5) also.

Although, doo-rag is a close second in my book. Since Greg and I sport the same hairdo, I’m sure he understands that logic. Doo rags are much better on a bald head than hats.

1st choice:

2. DOO While I’m a woman with much hair on her head, they work awesome for keeping it out of the way or my forehead and eyes while diving.

2nd choice:

1. HAT Love throwing on baseball cap when out on the boat, beach, or just roaming around on the weekend.

ScouterJT - 7/21/2008 10:59 AM
okay, I’ll switch from t-shirt to patch (especially if I can glue it to my dry suit)
sps3006 - 7/21/2008 11:07 AM
I guess I will have to vote for a pin since a patch isn’t offered......
Eve - 7/21/2008 11:47 AM
The patch of being offered now as no. 5 choice.
seawolfdiving - 7/21/2008 11:55 AM
I like em all except 3. Not too much in to bumper stickers. 
MostestGanpa - 7/21/2008 12:01 PM
I’ll have to go with the Hat, however I do love bumper stickers and Tees’
Anthony - 7/21/2008 1:07 PM
no. 6 a key chain
Babs - 7/21/2008 1:34 PM

my vote would be patch
Scout - 7/21/2008 2:46 PM
I say PIN

Insignia generally falls into three categories: rank, recognition, and participation. Number of dives is recognition, and is usually signified by a removable/replaceable pin with a distinct color or a numeral.

These pins are easy to buy off-the-shelf, too. I’d wear mine on my collar or put it on my Croc shoe.
AshleyLewellen - 7/21/2008 3:13 PM
I’d have to say the hat, otherwise the t-shirt.
Eve - 7/21/2008 3:17 PM

From Anthony: no. 6 a key chain

Aw come on, next thing will be a big car with dive buddy logo ! : ) ( :

lets keep it to the 5 choices.

Thanks for the ideas any way
seawolfdiving - 7/21/2008 3:20 PM
No, not a big car. They use too much gas. But a motorcycle would be nice...
Val - 7/21/2008 3:26 PM
1 Hat with the divebuddy logo!!
Anthony - 7/21/2008 3:41 PM
Really any of these would promote the site. Well, almost any, not to many people look at your key chain, but gear tags are anything you wear on a boat with other divers would be great.
Smeagol - 7/21/2008 4:07 PM
I say: Patch
FINSUPHAMMERDOWN - 7/21/2008 4:33 PM

GenoMc - 7/21/2008 6:10 PM
I would say hat, with the logo, that would be cool!
malibu - 7/21/2008 8:09 PM
Hat, but a tshirt with the logo and a number on the left sleeve sounds great
Indiana - 7/21/2008 8:18 PM
First choice would be the hat next would be the patch
LVDiver - 7/21/2008 10:25 PM
Hat w/ logo + pin (for the hat) with dive count
azskyandsea - 7/22/2008 8:15 AM
(1)Hat then (5)patch
xxSubSeaxx - 7/22/2008 3:12 PM

My order of preference includes the non listed items:

1) T-shirt 2) key chain 3) hat 4) patch, I guess...sigh

I agree w/ other posters though - not much into bumper stickers. If necessary (like a dive flag), it goes on the glass...
clyde - 7/22/2008 5:24 PM
id go with hat
seawolfdiving - 7/22/2008 9:38 PM
Yea ok, ok, I guess a bumper sticker would be alright. As long as a new Lamborghini comes attached to it.....
Eve - 7/22/2008 10:35 PM

From seawolfdiving: Yea ok, ok, I guess a bumper sticker would be alright. As long as a new Lamborghini comes attached to it.....

Okay then , I will get working right on that request, I guess I can find a company that will make a bumper sticker and attach a Lamborgini to it. : ) and when I do I will get the second one !
vyvial - 7/23/2008 11:32 AM
