Default Stolen Banner from SOTW

Originally posted by PARASPINALDOCS

Just got back from SOTW, what a great turn out. PROBLEM----One of our fellow boaters decided to TAKE a huge picture/banner of our 50 Nor-Tech cat. The banner was there because (we) Nor-tech are major sponsors for the event. If anyone knows of its location or any information please contact us or have the person send it back.No Questions asked.Its a sad day when one of our (boaters) events,turns out with people like this. Why would anyone want a picture of another boat and people they dont even know? Please help,Thanks

Sorry I can't help you but I know how you feel. We always seemed to lose a few banners at our Heat Wave Poker Runs. There are always a few in the crowd who spoil it for everyone else.

it's not right for someone to take ,but we all have pics or wallpaper of boats we don't own or do we know the people in them . it's just a great piece of art to hang on a wall. i'm sure that who ever took it knows that it was wrong and what comes around goes around.

Yes we do have pics of other people and boats,but as you said they should be purchased or auctioned for charity. Also this banner was 7 FT by 12 Ft. not just a little poster .Thanks for the help.

I'm sure somebody grabbed it not realizing that that it wasn't available. Cheap or not, those banners are devalued at the end of a event.

Pretty much ANY motrsports or BMX event I've ever been to the banners are all gone by the end of the weekend. In alot of cases it's encouraged. I understand that was probably an expesive banner to print , but I am sure some one loves the way it looks in there shop now. Just my $.02
PS I've got one of the BADD ASS Alcone banners in my shop.

That is a HUGE banner!!! Shame that someone would think that this was a run of the mill banner!! I got a GM powered banner in Orange Beach....but I went to the GMC truck and asked for one for our balcony at the Island House!! (upstanding citizen that I am ) Hope that the person sees this and does the right thing!!

R addiction, that is the type of response I like to hear.I would of had no problem with somone asking and then $ going to charity. We wanted to use this for other events. I understand what many of you are saying but Justification just doesnt fly with me. Bottom line for this issue, ask (like r addiction) and for the rest keep your frvi#^%% HANDS OFF OTHER PEOPLES CHIT. We would like it back no questions asked. THanks. I hate it when fingers start missing.
