    Default Miss America Brent "Doc" Hisey: RENO 2019

    How many of you think it was pretty darn cool that Brent "Doc" Hisey brought a race prepped Miss America to the 2019 STIHL National Championship Air Races?

    Do you know that the two oldest Reno National Championship Air Races competitors were on the ramp this year at the reno air races?

    OK... enough search engine textual tempters!

    Show "Doc" Hisey and his crew your appreciation.. POST YOUR PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A big thanks to Doc Hisey and crew for bringing out Miss-A this year! I'm sorry that it didn't turn out the way everyone hoped, but that's racing.

    I'd actually like to see a LOT of old stuff! With all my electron pushing, I've never digitized my old fan in the stands 110 stills and later, a lot of Hi8.

    I digress! I'd love to see old stuff, new stuff, really old... just anything Miss America related!

    Really appreciate the Miss A team engaging the public and pushing for the win when they could have coasted to second. The teams are what makes Reno great.

    On the subject of shirts, Custom Ink has a very cool fundraising feature. Basically everyone pre-orders a shirt and all profits go to the fundraiser. So long as you meet the minimum order there is no cost or risk to the team and you aren’t left with extra inventory afterwards. We raised enough money last year on hoodies to help with crew travel expenses.

    Another option (and this was discussed earlier this year with the so-called RARA tax) is to have a shirt supplier like Dan Angelo be an official member of the team. Then he sells most if not all his Miss A sirts through the pits like Sawbones does. Valley of Speed stills sells shirts. He is officially a “team member” and the teams don’t pay RARA anything like regular vendors do so that extra difference goes to the team. That would be low effort for the Miss A team (or any team) because now they don’t even have to design or print or sell the shirts.

    Something special about buying merchandise pit side directly from the team. A lot of teams have done this, Dago, Rare Bear, Strega, VooDoo, Precious Metal, Sawbones, etc.

    The really good designs become classics and have a special place in my closet and worn only on special occasions.

    Just to name a few, Rare Bear black long sleeve, Dago red red long sleeve, the Precious metals Ts in high impact colors purple, blue & yellow, Pole Dancer, Strega Ts, and lots of Sawbones T shirts. My son still has a red Dago hoodie that he wears on special occasions. Wish I would have bought one.

    I have been thinking of merchandise for Miss A for a couple years, wishing I could get some stuff.

    I would be willing to help set something up, if the team was interested in trying it.
