Pete-- I'm new to all of this posting,etc. Have you tried any "diplomatic" solutions with RNT2-- i.e., working with them to make the Paul Fox cups? From what I know you have the permission of the Paul Fox family....RNT2 has the logo, which I heard was obtained while Mike Brazill was running the company. But it seems that instead of fighting with them...since they legally own the logo (at least from what I can tell)...why not make it a joint venture...then both sides would benefit. At least that seems reasonable to me.
If you check out the papers that were filed, this went in before Mike was associated with Marcella and Jake. According to various posts and e-mails from Jake and Marcella, Mike Brazill never actually RAN RnT2 after they took it over.
Regarding my apparent lack of ability to read Jake's ads for the "factory second" Paul Fox style cups, I believe that I can explain this satisfactorily.
Jake said the cups had "divets" (sic) in the rims. I looked up the word "divet" in both Webster's Second and Webster's Third. For those of you from Viriginia, these are unabridged dictionaries, and are considered by people who actually write as the authority on American English. There is no such word as "divet" in American English. So I looked it up in the OED -- that's the Oxford English Dictionary, and sure enough, it was in there as a variant of "divot."
I've played enough golf to know what a divot is. So I interpreted the word to mean that there were nicks or dings in the rims.
I believe my confusion is understandable. And I congratulate Mr. Zimmerman on his knowledge of English variant spellings, which I had formerly attributed to a mistaken inabilty to actually be able to spell a simple five-letter word.
Even if it wasn't the word he meant.
