Capilano RFC Kit Order
We will have a limited amount of CFRC kit available this Thursday! We did our best to base off of the sizes people liked (and didn’t) from the last order and have a small amount of items available.
• Men’s Hooded Sweatshirts (no zip) – $70
• Women’s Hooded Sweatshirts (with zip) – $70
• Men’s training tops – Singlets – $35
• Women’s training tops – Singlets – $35
• After the AGM concludes (Thursday November 24, 2016)
• Cash ONLY • No “save it for me” • No “I’ll pay at the bar” • No checks or chits
Other notes – Due to the limited amount available, only one singlet and one sweater per member, to allow as many Cap’s and Cap supporters the opportunity to have kit. More will be ordered for the New Year. We have done our best to accommodate sizes based on the last order, but cannot fit everyone. Please speak with us if we don’t have a size you need and we will work to have it on the next order. Thanks, Ryan and Mia
