Same range, different group is my understanding. I think its the people that started it waaaay back when before it got so big. Could be rumors too. I hear so many versions.
 
Its not the Regional match of course, and yes, we got an invite last year, but it was short notice so couldn't make it. We might try this year.

Del, it does appear to be a nice shirt, and yes, it is thin like one of my other Palo Duro shirts. I know I couldn't buy a Wally shirt for that price that would be appropriate for what we do, so I can't complain, and its cheaper than some of the other vendors at big events.

A flannel work shirt from there with a non \button collar would be pretty darn close, a little work with a seam ripper on the extra part of the collar and a quick sew would turn it to a banded collar.  No all shirts then were pull over, just the majority.

Dalton, the next big question:  How does it run for size? For the money and the heat of summer it could be hard to beat, think I will order one.

Without washing it fits me loose as a 2x size 50ish chest.

I've got no opinion but would note that you should take a look at the comments on that page regarding quality - several are negative..

these shirts are a bit more expensive but of good quality based on my own and others experience..

I'm one fo those barrel chested types too) albeit my chest fell a while ago LOL!

Thanks for asking - still dealing with the Chronic Fatigue, but compared to even last year this time I'm doing a LOT better - helped to lose 65 pounds too...finally broke the 220 barrier and slowly but surely I'm working my way south of 200 - on the other hand the arthritis is still something to deal with - hands and shoulders just have too many years on them I reckon...
