    WANT A CLUB T-SHIRT?  

    NOW'S YOUR CHANCE TO ORDER ONE!


    We are using an "event" format to order 100% cotton or Sport-tek Ultimate Performance plyester/spandex t-shirts. For this first go-around, we need approximately 25 orders to get an order going. The first ordering of shirts will be held from now until May 31, 2018.  After that, we will close the ordering process.

    For the cotton t-shirts, you can order any of the six rainbow colors shown above, black, sport grey or sand. After you select either the short or long sleeve style, you'll then be asked to pick your color(s) and size(s).  You may order multiple shirts in one order.

    COTTON:


    For the Sport-tek Ultimate Performance Tees (which are moisture-wicking, stretch and tag-free), you can order only these six colors: black, white, heather grey, True Red, True Navy (dark blue) and True Royal (medium blue). The shirt is a 95/5 poly/spandex jersey and includes a left pocket logo, silk-screened on the front only. There is no printing on the back. After you select either the short or long sleeve style, you'll then be asked to pick your color(s) and size(s). You may order multiple shirts in one order.

    POLY BLEND:


    COLORS:


    The T-shirts are available for $15 for short sleeve and $17 for long sleeve versions, regardless of color, size or materials.

    T-shirts will be available for pickup at our June 26th membership meeting (8 PM). This is a not-so-subtle ploy to get you to attend a membership meeting! For any t-shirt not picked up, we will schedule another time and place for a 2nd round of pickups via email.  For long distance members, please email our President at the email below to make special arrangements for t-shirt delivery and any extra payment for packaging, shipping and handling costs.

    We are taking payments online only. After you submit an order, you'll be taken to a PayPal screen. If you have a PayPal account, you can use it or scroll further below on the PayPal payment screen and just use a credit card without needing a PayPal account.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dennis via email: President-PS@GreatOutdoors.org
