Saturday 6/16/12

Hi all! Remember our ASICS SBRR uniform order link is just beneath the map above. Please make your orders by no later than Sunday. Joe, from SBRunning Co needs your checks BEFORE the order goes out on Monday morning (this Monday the 18th of June). So you may write your checks out to SBRunning Company (NOT SBRR) and either give to Rusty Saturday at practice or drop by SBRunning Co in Goleta by Monday 10am and drop it off directly to him. FYI to all SBRR women, We have had a request to change from the Intensity singlet to the "Trial Shimmel" as it's more form fitting. We've made this change. No price difference, Think it's an improvement.

We will be meeting at handlebar Coffee,, on Canon Perdido tomorrow at 6:30am. Plenty of on street parking and we will meet in their patio area 6:30am. Great owners and I've heard fantastic Coffee.
See you then!

p.s. Good Luck to those racing the Carp All comers track meet tomorrow night at carp HS.
