#74 Iceland added to collection

Eric "Gracy" Gracyainy took on the mission to get a roll of Duct Tape from Iceland and did it with gusto! Here he is standing outside Brynja ( a local hardware store in Iceland. A visit to Hallgrimskirkja, Reykjavik's State Street got the job done. Looking at their website shows that have an impressive line of tools and Duct Tape!

And Gracy will soon have his own one of a kind ( 1 of 200 ) World Duct Tape coin #74 to prove it.

Gracy and Chris at Brynja in Iceland with the prize. Gracy says he also had another mission and that was to get a shot glass from Iceland to add to his collection of almost 200 of them! So here's to Gracy.

U.A.E. roll add to collection

This roll #73 came from Dubai one of the seven emirates that make up the U.A.E. (United Arab Emirates) . Last year during the World Finals in Ames, Iowa Meg Rauth saw the World Duct Tape collection on display and told Lorraine and Rob Lowrie about it. They were their working as officials.  Their son Nathan was also there. They are all from Lebanon, PA. Nathan sent the tape to me from his business Fine Line Automation. They bought the tape and sent it to me with the receipt. It was interesting to note that the name of the cashier that waited on them was printed on it.

Did a bit of research on Dubai - They are 9 hours ahead of CST in Wisconsin. Dubai is a city and emirate in the U.A.E. known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively night life scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m tall tower, dominates the skyscraper filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine animal parks.

I have engraved a Duct Tape Coin for the Lowrie's and if I don't see them at this years World Finals in East Lansing MI I will mail it to them.
