50+ jerseys are here!

Just as I typed in another thread that they weren't here the FedX dude delivered.
The counts are all correct this time!
I am packaging tonight and will ship Wednesday AM

Remember, part of the deal is that you must post your photo, in the jersey, in this thread!

THAT'S SWEET!

I'm guessing that being relatively new this was all set up a long time ago and I missed the boat. But if a large happens to go unclaimed I'd be in for the cost.

For the benefit of the new, yes, it was all done in advance. People sent money and I ordered. It's been so long some will be surprised when they come. (about 6 weekes from teh end order date, 2 months for early order folks) Heck, it's been so long some likely don't ride any more....

Was this the 3rd time you coordinated a bulk order for these jerseys?

Yep. Third time. I could joke that i just can't learn, but really, it goes more smoothly each time. And I just love the ego boost of seeing people in a jersey I designed.

This time i ordered a wind vest for myself, and for my wife. I also ordered a jacket for myself. Tricia said she didn't want one.
When the box arrived and I showed her my jacket she said "Why didn't I get a jacket?"
So there may well be at least one more order in my future.

For us new guys,
What was/is the cost? If you order for your wife could you add in tee shirts for the new "people"?

Yippy. Thanks Curtis. Technically, I won't able to wear it yet since I won't turn 50 till December.

BTW, it was nice meeting you and Trisha at the wheelsucker ride on Sunday.

Well, thank you Siu.

I am actually 52 if I go by the old Chinese tradition of adding a year when you're born, a year for the heaven and a year for the earth. My brothers and I still don't know exactly how old our mother is.

The jerseys are in the mail.
I'd stuffed the envelopes and went to the PO to get those flat rate envelope stamps. Whoops. They don't have any. The PO person had to run every envelope and create a stamp from her machine.

I'd better figure out how to buy those stamps online.

So, report arrival, and don't forget to post photos.

BTW, I like the jacket!

DETAILS
The Over 50 jersey was something I designed here almost as a joke. But people liked the idea, and with a bit of input I finished the design.

I'm not a biz guy. I had people send me $$ via Paypal in advance. (Jerseys were $60)
I then had one made for everyone, and now am mailing them out.

There seems to be interest, so I'm thinking to do another round when I get back from riding Seattle to Portland. As long as we hit a minimum of 11 we'll be OK.

Who is that young kid in the photo?

We'll order in the next round. Hubby said the other day that he'd like the looser fit rather than the racing fit he has now -- it's hard for him to pull a snug-fitting jersey over head with his artificial shoulder. Otherwise, we love the shirts. I'm very interested in the vest or jacket. Curt, if you or Trisha had to pick just one of them, which one would you choose?

Vest vs. Jacket... Humm, I'll report after Seattle to Portland. I'm taking the whole 50+ kit (I guess that's 150 total...)

Super news Curtis, made my week here. These jerseys are our 32nd anniversary presents to each other. I figured end of this month at best. This close to 2 July is so cool. Cannot wait to post up pics of us.

Thanks again for undertaking the task. If you are doing another order soon I am in for a vest and a jacket and what ever Monica wants.

Bill

Woohoo! If the post is quick I might be able to wear it this Saturday on the One Helluva Ride in MI. Or certainly on the Holland Hundred the next week.

(I just hope changing my order to a small club cut wasn't a mistake)
