    Wayne, I think you should delete this thread because the TTI Club is not about getting free shirts. You are sending out the wrong message and probably increasing the traffic to TT's website which causes them a lot of grief is what I'm told.

    This is inaccurate.

    TT loves the exposure and the traffic generated by their banner here, as well as dialogue about them and their products. TT does not like it when people post misinformation which generates numerous Influentials Club applications by unqualified applicants who will be turned down.

    I believe the Influentials Club is predominantly occupied by professional folks who clearly understand the mutual benefit of the program.

    I am a member myself and will be conducting a retriever demo at a local park on Saturday. I will proudly wear a white TT Influentials shirt at that event.

    Nothing I've ever posted was inaccurate or misinformation if that is what you are suggesting. I friend of mine and a few guys on RTF got their shirts because of the deleted thread. Demos are fun. The Washington Waterfowl Assoc. invited me to do a demo recently and I was invited to do a retriever demo with a Professional pointer trainer who has won the Am National with a GSP at the State fair two years ago. That was fun. Put his GSP on point and sent in the Chessie for the flush and retrieve. Brought out a little girl from the crowd and taught her how to handle a dog. You'll have a great time if you've never done one before.

    No matter the tone and non sense of typical conversations on RTF I still always recommend TT to the clients who come to the kennel and I chat with daily for pointer training. Got many of them away from the un reliable crap cheapo collars.

    "unqualified applicants" is an interesting term and the elusive question that folks I've spoken with wonder about. What makes you qualified? Have a MH title? Own a kennel? Be a Professional? What are the pelts needed to have a shirt with your name on it?

    Would that make you feel more special?

    It's marketing and thats all it is.

    I miss that as well.

    Interesting that several commented on the use of the word "free" since that is the word used on the TTIC website. "Free personalized clothing"
