Jeff Ringle named his company after himself. He is American and a good friend of John Parker of Yeti fame.

They would party pretty hearty together at the trade shows, and were nice enough to invite me along for a few...

A few somethings.

That it was named after Jeff Ringle is incorrect. It was named after Ringle Wisconsin. Just off Hwy 29, about 15 miles east of Wausau, WI.

P.S. Just kidding about the origin, but thought you might like the sign.

Everything is better and bigger in 'Merica.

Our canyons are bigger.

Our trees are bigger.

Our wide open prairies are bigger.

Yes, our roadsigns are bigger too.

Are people are even bigger than anywhere in Europe. :? Ew, this isn't fun any longer.

so to answer definitively a question asked in a thread some months ago - what is the correct pronunciation? Is it Ringull or Ringlay? For me it's Ringlay.
