    At TesLive (2013), there were armbands for Roadster owners, Model S owners, Model X reservations, and "other EV".

    At TMC Connect (2014), the armbands were revisited and there was a shortage of Model S arm bands so some folks got "incorrect" armbands.

    For TMC Connect 2015, we should definitely address the shortage of Model S armbands but...

    For owners that traded a Model S in for a Model D, should they get 2 armbands or 1?

    As a perhaps biased "Sig owner for life", I think sold/traded-in cars shouldn't count for an armband.

    Armbands are for what you currently own or (in case of the X), have an active reservation.

    But y'know ... just armbands. You can have mine.

    Bonnie, I was counting on you to reel him in, not encourage him.

    ...or at the medical meetings I go to, add colored stickers/badges to your attendee badge. If someone really cares to know, they can see your 'qualifications' without anyone having to wear a bunch of potentially annoying wrist bands. Think of the ribbons that members of the military wear on their uniforms...I have no direct knowledge or expertise but I understand that if you know how to read them, they tell a very full story.....

    I don't remember ever being successful on that front, even with moderating. You've met him, right? :)

    Uh, no. I was talking about whatever ones I might receive at 2015.

    They were made of some sort of fibrous paper, so I assume you haven't showered much since then either? :eek:

    She laughs, secretly praying that Brianman will actually take off the wrist band...

    This is a better idea than wristbands. The wristbands remind me of frat parties where underage kids got a differently colored wristband.

    Agreed. Heck it could be as simple as colored dots on the name badge. You can pick them up at Staples for a few bucks.

    If you are going to add things to the name badge...can you make the font BIGGER this time? Some of us would like to know with whom we are conversing without needing our reading glasses. Thanks!

    It has been pointed out privately that this thread might be causing angst for doug and other organizers of TMC Connect. I apologize if that is the end result. This thread was intended to be light-hearted and hopefully remains as such.

    Forget the arm bands....I want flower girls tossing rose petals ahead of me while a choir of young men sing "praise & glory to you oh Sig Owner!"
