Krausse Cup 21012 by Krausse Cup 21012 - 9 months ago
" The photograph was taken on July 1, 2012 at the Krausse Cottage at Bowlers Wharf VA on the Rappahannock River. The event was a family reunion of Chris & Spott (deceased) Krausse's 4 grown children and their families. In total there were 24 people present for the photo, with ages that span 4 generations (4-89). Missing were 4 that were present on June 30 but were unable to attend the Sunday & Monday event. Family members traveled from close by: Richmond, Chesterfield, & Hampton VA and far away: Huntsville AL, Port Orange FL, and Long Beach CA. We are a sports oriented family that enjoys games. To create some hype and build up, I came up with the Krausse Cup theme where family units would compete in Mind & Body games. Top games were Gobblet and Corn Hole/Washer Toss. Along with this was color T Shirts by family unit. Each family came up with at name for their family unit. Team Names were: Team Grandstand Team Lightening Team SkiBob (missing in photo) Rivah Rats The Alabama Slammers As they say "A Good Time Was Had By All" I planned to order T Shirts for this event. I had done so previously from a another company for a smaller family function, but ordered the same shirt for all. Custom Ink was a top line selection on the web. After a quick review of its layout and shirt options capability, I decided to learn the particulars and create an order. I was very impressed with the various aspects of Custom Ink, from the web application to the customer service and personal interaction. The main selling point was the fact that we could have the same front design, team name on the back of the shirt, and change the color of the shirt. I received a tip on a call that the ink color was an important factor to help manage cost. I created a matrix for Team Name & Font Style, Shirt Color and Ink Color. This was converted to an accurate and timely order delivery. I will come back again, when there is a need for shirts etc. There was an added intangible that came with the team shirts. The grandchildren were psyched about the whole tournament format. The older ones (my sons) began smack talking before hand via email strings. There was an added camaraderie through spirited but friendly competition among families. Thanks for helping make this happen."
