Just received the prototype patch picture from the vendor. I haven't held this in my hand yet, but it looks good so far. The patches will ship approximately January 23rd, and I'll receive them maybe 4 or 5 days later. Let's say late January.

We'll have 150 available. This doesn't sound like a lot, but I think we'll be lucky to go through 100 of them. Feel free to prove me wrong. If we have to, we'll have a second batch made, possibly with a subtle design alteration so that we can tell them apart.

The goal here, as stated before, is to pay for web hosting for this site. Rather than simply ask you all for donations with nothing in return, we've opted to give these patches to whoever contributes at least $7.50 to the forum. Every cent of your donation over and above the cost of the patches and shipping will go into a Modern Vespa fund, with most (if not all) of that fund being spent on web hosting. I won't personally take a cent.

We also plan on issuing a new patch, with a new design, on a yearly basis. Yes, this is a cheap ploy to make these more collectable.

All donations can be made through this page.

Put me down for one Jess. I predict they'll be gone in 48 hours. Better reserve one now, before they're history.

I'm mailing the check to your 61st address, Jess. I hope to be the first donation your receive. I welcome anyone to try to beat me.

Forgot to mention: To simplify things for everyone, we'll be using PayPal as a donation vehicle. I know there are some people who have issues with PayPal, but it does make the proposition of processing 150 patches much more manageable on my part. You'll be able to specify a shipping address for your patch when you make a donation.

I've been having trouble using pay-pal paying for stuff that I've bought thru Ebay in the past because unfortunately, Pay-Pal does not recognize Puerto Rico as being part of the U.S. So I ended up paying by money order. Can you put me down for 4 of them? PM me with your address so I can send you the money. Thank you.

If you'll go to this page, it'll allow you to specify what you want to give, and what you'll get. We're giving away a patch for each $7.50 donation. Using PayPal is easy, you can make an instant payment with a credit card without having a PayPal account.

You can do it without your account info, if you like. They'll take a credit card regardless.
