Mount Vernon Plate Brushes

Dear NCAA,
I have three Mount Vernon Plate Brushes (i.e. small scrapers to quickly, thoroughly clean off the mud) available for you to purchase.

Of course, if you had Lori, Eric, Brandon, Brenda or even by gawd SRW working this series, you would already have some on hand.

This spring I misplaced mine (it fell out of my bag into my car trunk) and about went ballistic hunting for it. I may buy your three from you myself!

Shag, basically they are scrapers without handles, 3-4 inches long, 5-6 inches wide. Great for getting mud off the plate, work even better when you kick some dry dirt on the wet plate and then clean it. Region 15 UIC William Silves is usually good for 1-2 if you are fortunate to work a national under his direction. Bill or Malcolm would likely be able to bring some along with them to any regional or national with advance notice.

I have an old "Hole-E-Brush" that has a scraper on the side. Just don't forget and use the bristles first. It makes a mess in the bag.
