Hey Mark

Great news. Green light. We're a go on the award. We've got some really special plans for it that I'm going to hash out soon. But it's official. I don't know about you, but I'm really pumped for it.

Just wanted to pass along the good news.

Jay

Well alright, folks, let's get to work!

trickworm! - get your young butt up that hick'ry tree, cut that stick and get to whittlin', son! :D

I have decided to take on the responsibilities of making the frames for the artwork myself, y'all. I'm an experienced woodworker and actually use to make my own frames for my paintings so I still have all the jigs, clamps, etc. I found some nice looking knotty pine chair rail molding @ Home Depot that is inexpensive, will look great, and will be easy to work with. karst41 has a bunch of clear acrylic he's donating that I can use in place of glass, and we're gonna get out on the cheap for the framed artwork but it's gonna look great!

Here is a mock-up drawing I've done approximating what the presentations will look like:

The wood for the frame has a nice shape (profile) to it that I didn't describe in the drawing but I'll try to find a pic of it and post it later in this thread. The overall size including the frame will be 24"W x 18"H. The cost to produce these will be nominal, folks, $15.00 ea. tops I reckon, so I might not even do a "fund raiser" unless y'all insist. ;)

BCEagle will do what we call a "mini-poll" after each game (with no write-ups) as to what y'all think the games outstanding players were. Those votes will correlate directly to the quarterly nominations (with write-ups), so the boards will be totally involved during the whole process. Sound good? Ask any questions you might have and I'll try and answer as best I can.

Jay & myself agree, folks: This is an NFL first! A fan-based award, born from message boards, from the fans, to the players! If it's already being done anywhere else, we've certainly never heard of it!

I'm pumped, Jay's pumped, Flowery Branch is pumped, we're ALL pumped, ain't we?

YO, ADRIAN! WE DID IT!!!B)

The knotty pine chair rail molding for the framework I speak of has a profile similar to this:

What makes it so cool (the specific shape I found @ Home Depot), is that it already has a rabbit cut on the back side to nest the glass, print and backing. Couldn't be any easier! I plan to stain the wood a light shade and distress it just a lil' bit to give it a slightly weathered look. They all will be complete and ready to hang with wire, etc.
