Last day for T shirt and Burgees

Posted on

THIS IS IT – LAST CHANCE TO ORDER YOUR T-SHIRTS and BURGEE’S LAST DAY TO ORDER October 16th ! The Panama Posse burgee will be a high quality doubled-sided sewn burgee that will last well beyond its actual time in use.  We are having them made this way because we know that folks will want to keep and display them as a memento and reminder of the great times we all will, surely, share.  The cost of each burgee to Panama Posse members is $25.00 – which is less than the actual cost Thanks, Suzanne and Dietmar !   Also available, but certainly not required, are T-Shirts and Tank Tops in both Men’s and Women’s styles.  Each shirt will have the Panama Posse Logo printed on the front as well as the names of each vessel (the fleet) and a smaller logo on the back.  The garments are a white cotton/poly blend which tends to be more comfortable in the heat and wears better for longer.  The cost of the shirts is $20.00 each – which should pay for the shirts, shipping to us, and IVA.  If there is anything left over, we will use those funds to purchase libations for our send-off party in Barra de Navidad.   You are not required to purchase a shirt in order to have your vessel’s name printed on the back, but those who don’t purchase a burgee will, of course, not be listed.   Please respond to this email with a filled out order sheet today – there will be no extra shirts !   Please submit this order form specify sizes for shirts via email and pay your grand total via PAYPAL (link below)    VESSEL NAME   Current Location   ITEM QUANTITY Unit Price USD Size (S M L XL XXL) (more…)
