CLUB SHIRTS: Mark changed the order of the meeting by first allowing Kris Goodman to show the club members some shirt and jacket samples that we can place our club logo on. Kris showed us many polo shirt samples and some jacket samples that we might be interested in. The polos were priced from $22.98 to $32.00 (price includes logo placed on item) If you wanted shirt with a pocket there will be at a slightly higher cost. We all agreed on one shirt that Kris had which was all white with vertical stitching pattern. Kris will place our club logo over left chest with our first name on right sleeve.
Kris showed us some jackets with prices from $49.99 to $50.98 including logo placed on front.
The club agreed to look at redesigning our logo in inverse so we could have it placed on a dark color item and show up well. Denis will work on that.
