Monkey Club T-Shirts!


Several have requested them over the past few weeks and I have talked with several companies and found one who would be able to produce them. Thus, I hereby declare the start of "Operation T-Shirt"! :-)

We will produce our own club t-shirts and hopefully get them to all interested members before the end of the year. First of all we need to determine which motifs the shirts should feature. We cannot produce many different shirts but have to settle with a small number of different motives and have them produced in bulk.

I would like to suggest we settle with three different motives which should be chosen by you. We will start with collecting ideas for motifs today and everyone is welcome to add his/her suggestion. Just reply to this blog post with your idea!

Well, first thank you very much Mark for this initiative; second, before speaking of the motives, i would like to say that black is a great color for T-Shirt..; So, the motives should include white motives or white letter "Monkey chess Club" and perhaps under this "Channel 177 on Fics" and the adress of the server. But the motive should be the most thing to see : a Monkey like a horseman beating a King ?
Best regards to you Mark

ok i have three ideas

first one "classic" green like the site with the sunset ape logo on the front side and under it the monkey club writing/logo and on the backside i would write something like "monkeys play the better chess"

second one, the evolution diagram we all know beginning with a chimp going over to pre human and ending with a chimp sitting in front of a table playing chess, maybe on the backside monkeys play the better chess" too

third one i think something like cjldx the horseman as a monkey, without the king, and the monkey club writing/logo, its simple classic and i think cool too

i like ono's 2nd idea better, but would like it with a black base. and also some clever quotes on linking monkeys and chess..then name of the club can be prnted with some fancy font or alongwith a logo..and 'fics' shoould be mentioned somewhere alongwith its address.

Hi all,

I agree with the other writers. I think it should have something to do
with the FICS serverchannel 177, chess and Monkey Club.

As motive something as human vs. machine. For instance a monkey plays
against a machine with the title: Next Generation.

A monkey plays chess in front of a PC via internet chess on FICS.
A monkey plays chess against a scientist.
A monkey with chess pieces around e.g. Rook, Night, pawns...

So far

i want to wear it in private too XD

i got another idea, i think the most of you know this famous Homer Simpson head x-ray picture.

Like this, a Monkey head x-ray picture and the brain is a chess piece, would say the best would be a knight cause a knight piece you see best and you know this has to be with chess, but a king would be also ok
