The Landrum family, at our request, has put together a design and suppliers for a new long sleeved MN Biathlon Tee shirt!
Tara did the design work and also has researched suppliers as to sizing and delivery. Here are her comments: SIZING: There are two style versions, chosen because we have smaller female athletes who might find a mens small still too large for them. Compare measurements to shirts you already wear. Everyone, PLEASE REFER TO SIZE CHARTS for ordering. .
MATERIAL: Both shirts are tech fabric, the mens is from Russell—4 oz polyester, typical slightly-shiny athletic fabric. The womens is from Gildan—a bit heavier, 5 oz polyester. Still tech fabric, but a softer, thicker jersey feel, not shiny. There was not a same-company version in both mens and womens that looked good. See descriptions for more specifics.
QUANTITIES: We need 6 of each, minimum.
PRICING: $32 per shirt. If you aren’t at the races in mid Dec at Mt Itasca to get your shirt or able to pick it up in St Paul, please add $5 per shirt for shipping and handling and we will mail it to you.
It will take two weeks for delivery after ordering—so we have an order deadline of this Friday if you want the shirt mid Dec. If you just want it by Christmas—you can order up to Dec 1st, but we might have to mail it to you at an extra cost of $5 for shipping and handling. We will order the shirts based on your email to Tara, but delivery will depend on Lou’s receipt of your check.
To order: 1] email Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order—size and gender. 2] Immediately mail Lou Chouinard a check and a paper copy of your email to Tara. Lou Chouinard – 3925 30th Avenue S – Minneapolis MN 55406-3108
The shirts will be brought to the race in Dec at Mt Itasca—probably the 8th of Dec. Or can be picked up at Landrum’s in St Paul. otherwise they will be mailed. Any questions, please get right back to me.
One of the workouts you don’t want to pass on this time of year is shooting just for accuracy. Good to start each workout with a 10+10 minimum. Yesterday we took the opportunity to do that, along with a range procedure drill on roller skis, some short TH combos, some long TH combos and some short RP combos. The wind is rarely bad at ER, but yesterday while not real high, was shifting from side to side.
We had a couple of folks on light duty at least by the end of the workout—so they did a 50 shot test on metal without skis on, both with PR’s in that test. Conner did the 10+10 without skis—but the rest shot standing off of roller skis—a definite handicap—so PR’s in that test were in short supply!!
Good workout day and I would like to thank Jeff Bosek and Landrums for all the help setting up, blowing the course, and closing things down at the end.
