If you have any scarf questions, feel free to ask !

Just a little note on this idea, X(Eric) came up with this idea, and to be honest he hooked me damn hard on the idea, he designed it, found the contact and did IMO an out and out job, this scarf as a soccer scarf is used as much as a banner during games as something to wear :)
X(Eric) a big congrats to have made this happen, huzza! huzza! :beer:


je prend juste quelques lignes, pour vous dire que X proposer l'idée de ce foulard et je dois dire que j'ai mordu fort :)
X(Eric) a fait un boulot extraordinaire pour créer le design et l'idée du foulard. Il faut comprendre que ce n'est pas juste un foulard a mettre au cou :) il sert aussi de bannière au match.
Triple hourra! a X(Eric)

I got a couple of questions about the content on the scarf, here's a quick explanation:

1 - No Official Als logo, why ?
It's copyrighted and we cannot use it without Als permission and we wanted “carte blanche” on our product.

2 – Why only the word Alouettes ?
Because the word, is a common word and cannot be trademarked.

3 – Why burgundy & white bars, 7 in total ?
To reflect the retro era (1946@ 1969) with the red & white jersey.
There is also another meaning to the bars…you already have 5 hints to figure it out… ;)

4- Why the 5 years on the 2nd side ?
5 Grey Cup wins for Alouettes….(hint here for the 7 bars..)…

5 – Why 4 red circles between 1949 & 1970 ?
Again to reflect the retro era, we took the 4 retired jersey from that era and wanted to honor them (Georges Dixon, Herb Trawick, Hal Patterson & Sam Etcheverry).

6 - Why are you missing some retired jersey (i.e: Della Riva)
This scarf only covers the retro era we played this year. If the Als & CFL make another era (1970’s) game next year, we’ll think about a new promo item with the retired jerseys from that time.

*************************************

J'ai reçu quelques questions sur le contenu de l'écharpe, voici une explication rapide:

1 - Pas de logo officiel des Als, pourquoi?
Il a un droit d'auteur/marque de commerce et nous ne pouvons pas l'utiliser sans la permission des Als. De plus, nous voulions "carte blanche" sur notre produit.

2 - Pourquoi seulement le mot Alouettes ?
Parce que le mot est un mot commun et n’a pas de marque de commerce.

3 - Pourquoi les bandes Bourgogne et blanches, 7 au total?
Pour tenir compte de l'époque rétro (1946 @ 1969) avec le maillot rouge et blanc.
Il ya aussi un autre sens aux 7 barres... vous avez déjà 5 indices pour le découvrir ...;)

4 - Pourquoi les 5 ans du 2ieme côté ?
5 victoires de la Coupe Grey des Alouettes .... (Autre indice ici pour les 7 bandes) ...

5 - Pourquoi 4 cercles rouges entre 1949 et 1970?
Encore une fois afin de refléter l'époque rétro, nous voulions honorer les maillots 4 retraités de cette époque (Georges Dixon, Herb Trawick, Hal Patterson & Sam Etcheverry).

6 - Pourquoi manque t-il des maillots retirés (ex: Della Riva)
Ce foulard ne porte que sur l'époque rétro, que nous avons joué cette année. Si les Alouettes et la LCF jouent d’autres match "epoque" (ex : 1970) l'an prochain, nous penseront a 1 nouvel produit promo avec les maillots retirés de cette époque.

CFLshop.ca are selling scarfs for the West teams. I must say that your scarf's are much nicer. I would be interested in one as well.
