The t-shirts for the 2014 Flyathlon are in, and they are awesome. They are this super soft fabric that I first discovered when I got 2012 Leadville Heavy Half t-shirt, and have since found in t-shirts from Elevation Beer Co. The shirts came together because we had too many sponsors to fit on the back of a beer glass, which was the original concept. 2014 flyathletes will happy to hear that we are still considering aluminum pint glasses to drink post-race beers… Stay tuned.
Special thanks go to:
Flyathlete in good standing #15 Brette Schell, who organized the shirts and helped get the logos into an appropriate format for printing (not an easy task, it turns out). Brette and her fella, flyathlete in good standing #14, Matt White, have been awesome supporters of the Flyathlon since it’s formal inception last year. When you meet them in August, please make them drink a beer with you.
A Small Print Shop, a small print shop in downtown Denver who printed the shirts. If you have need to print shirts in the future, I strongly recommend these guys. It is literally a small print shop, and it doesn’t get more legit as a small Denver business. And at the end of the year, my buddy is opening a cool bar called Finn’s Manor (https://www.facebook.com/finnsmanordnvr) less than a block away, so you can drink while you wait for your shirts to be printed…
Christy Sports, for giving us a donation to help off-set the cost of the shirts. Christy Sports has been a family owned, Colorado based specialty ski and snowboard retailer since 1958, who are happy to support both local and national organizations (like us, who will go national, no GLOBAL, soon) which focus on ecological responsibility while still promoting recreation. At Christy Sports, they are passionate about skiing and snowboarding, but also realize the importance of supporting organizations that benefit local watershed management (like us), because while they enjoy the snow during the winter, they also enjoy the rivers, streams, and lakes throughout the state as soon as the runoff starts.
