Some of you may have noticed some banter about a Moonstone Camp Draft over in the Camp Draft thread. Well this project may be taking flight if you would like to sign on. We need 30 members to confirm their solid interest to get the ball rolling. I recently inquired via email to Sam, the owner of everythingaustralian about the possibility of having a special run of Akubra Camp Drafts. I suggested a CD in Moonstone with a 2 5/8th brim. I told Sam how his bluegrass green is such a hit with the folks from the Fedora Lounge. Sam got back to me immediately and said if we can get together 30 FL members he is more than happy to try and broker the manufacture. He felt 90% certain that Akubra would be open to production of this special Moonstone version. He also said if this model went over well he would even stock some in his store. Sam was so interested in the idea he called me direct at home from his shop in Australia. Was I ever surprised at his enthusiasm. The specs - Moonstone Camp Draft (open crown as usual) in Imperial (standard) felt with a 2 5/8ths brim. Everything we love in a CD, plus a moderate brim size for those so inclined. So now it is time to gauge your enthusiasm. Lets get the ball rolling on the countdown to 30. I think I have seen positive responses from the following folks. 1- Duper 2- RBH 3- Egghead 4- gtdean 5- DougC 6- Landman 7- KyleK 8- W4ASZ 9- Maricopakid 10- Florida_Marlin 11- casechopper 12- yeps That was a fast dozen,,but we need more. If I can see another 12 onboard quickly I will get back to Sam to iron out some more details on payment, sizing and delivery date. Sam did say to expect the usual 3 month wait. Step right up and own a small piece of FL history in the making.
