Will there be another 50+ jersey group sale?

I may have missed something but I would be interested in any new group purchase plans for a 50+ jersey if one comes up. I'd even volunteer to help out in any way needed.

OK. I think it must be about time. Let me work out the prices so I don't lose money and I'll get it going.
Maybe I've gotten smarter than last year and can make it happen with less work.

Good deal! I had several positive comments on the 50+ jersey I wore on the charity ride on the Road Atlanta course last week on the Tour de Georgia Team Time Trial day. One friend was very interested in buying one. I'll let him know to get ready to place an order.

I just sold a nicely refurbed Nishiki, and I start drawing a paycheck again soon. So I'm ready for my jersey!

Maybe I can get one that fits this time! Although I've now lost just about enough weight to get mine over my handles.

Have any non-US resident members purchased one of these? Unless the cost is prohibitive I'd certainly be interested.

Yrs trly in his 50+ jersey

BTW, I think the Allez! and Experience Counts on the back would be easier to see if they were in white instead of black.

Yeh, look at those quads. No wonder he ran over that group the other day. If only I could commute to work every day......

I'm a newbie, but I've fallen twice. If appropriate, I'd like to be added to the list.
Also, thanks for taken the time and doing the work to make this happen.

Good to hear. Curtis I don't want to cost you any money. Let me know a complete price when you have had time to get things together. Monica and I would like 1XL and 1 medium to show the local troops what BF has to offer.
