  • SPACE AMAZING RACE
    • Lights, camera, action!...
      They'll be plenty of action come F&F day but we'll need your help to make it awesome! So we're calling all Space Dragons with abled buff bods and video cameras. In short, we need 8 camera toting operators to follow each race team and document their progress. Other things we will need as well are volleyballs, frisbees, and a hockey goal net. Please email Devant if you can help out in any of the aforementioned ways or have any of the items listed!

4.  10th YEAR SHIRT/JERSEY
  • To commemorate our 10th year, we've designed a special edition shirt/jersey (see attached picture, remove "ng" from extension)
  • The following are 3 options and their approximate prices
    1. Silkscreen cotton t-shirt: $20
    2. Silkscreen dri-fit jersey: $30
    3. Dye-sublimated dri-fit jersey: $40
  • Note that options 1 and 2 require a minimum combined order of 20 pieces
  • If you would like to order 1 (or more), please email Pearl with: type, size, quantity
  • These may be worn in place of the team jersey on Saturdays (only) for the remaining 2011 tournaments
  • Please let Pearl know by COB this Sunday 4/3.  Sorry for the short notice, we're trying to get these printed by Baby LB
