    Is this serious? You want them spending limited resources on fancier stickers? Holy ____.

    I agree with this 100%: they need to do one sticker each year that incorporates all the years that you've been a member, not a new one each year. I limit myself to 3 stickers on window, but that is leaving off a bunch of years that I've been a member. I mean have a 2018 sticker that says "Member since 2010." That way you can replace one sticker with the new one each year....so you don't have to have a thousand stickers on your vehicle.

    Are you serious? How much fancier would it be, or how could it cost more, to have one sticker each year that also states how long the member has given to RCAF?

    Serious as a heart attack, Clark...those stickers are marketing for a foundation trying to raise monies.....the 2 most visible vehicles for RCAF are license plates and stickers on automobiles...and the stickers look terrible...having 1 or 2 marketing professionals redesign the logo is not wasting limited resources...

    The main point of bumping this was that the form along with payment for the football passes is due at the end of May. It will not be invoiced to you, so remember to take care of it now if you haven't already.

    Thanks....just rejoined RCAF and completed/sent my parking form. Was waiting for them to put into my account, so glad you reminded us.

    Thank you. For me, I'm pretty much at that point.

    I have never once thought they looked terrible, I notice them on every vehicle that has one. Beyond that what is the point? Once we are done fixing literally everything else about our marketing then maybe worry about that.

    The point is...what you're not seeing is all the vehicles who are members but don't have the sticker displayed bc they don't like them...I log 30,000+ Miles annually between Lafayette and Houston alone......on the hottest pavement/recruiting ground...myself and others arent sharing the visibility every single week...add red outline on the letters or something to spruce it up...I know of 5 people off the top of my head that travel the same highway & frequency as I do and feel the same way about not putting RCAF sticker on their vehicles...

    I'm not saying im in the right...just saying I'm 1 of quite a few who just don't put the decal on our vehicle...and just explaining why...

    Not a bad idea. I think its debatable that the product on the field is better now that it was 'back in the day'. I think its just the opposite. Not that it really matters. The powers that be have raised prices of everything. Unless the paying public 'really' stops going,(like last years wasn't bad enough), it will be the same ol, same ol.

    Sorry, but it is not acceptable to have a put another sticker on your car each year. If I did that, I would have a back window full of stickers. But if I don't put them all on no one knows how long I've been a member.

    We are losing visibility of our supporters because of this stupid....but very easily fixed....issue.

    . ...uniformed people usually have the loudest opinions



    We just increased our football salary pool top 8 in the G5 have to make up that cost somehow and if its $60 for a parking pass i will gladly pay .

    Beware of fancy vs quality.

    I believe the current design is a true white vinyl graphic, meaning the color is through and through.

    These can last up to a dozen years easily, and up to 20 years outside if not waxed and spend some time out of direct sunlight.

    Fancy graphics that are not UV clear coated, have a 3-5 year life expectancy outdoors.

    Is it that important to you that everyone who sees a RCAF sticker on your window know how long you have been a member?

    Is that the actual purpose of these stickers? I always thought they were mostly advertising for RCAF and to allow members to show that they support the Ragin Cajuns.

    Do other athletic foundation stickers have each member's history?

    Also, how would it be easily fixed as you claim? Today, only what 10 different stickers are required to be made, sorted, and sent out appropriately. This will waste exponentially more resources as years go by and RCAF gains members.

    you darn right it is.

    the purposes are two-fold, at least, and not at all hard to understand or accomplish both of them at the same time.

    Really???? You mean it would be difficult for them to have a data base of their members, including the years that they have been members, and then a template that says "2018, and member since....." How damn hard would that be??? How much money/resourecs could that possibly take up???

    Look up The 100 Club in Texas...I'd love to know of anyone who travels to Texas and doesn't see these stickers and donation levels on numerous vehicles along the way...see how much money they raise and how many members they send stickers to...I'll help you out there: 32,000 members...if they can get it right... no reason RCAF can't for our measly 2,000 members...
