Coming up this weekend

few things since I (and the rest of SJ crew) are running on fumes after RISAA and Berkeley shows this weekend..throw in some nasty weather and I am just glad everyone got home safe. Last week was Surf Day and East Meadow, this past weekend was RISSA and Berkley and this weekend we got Ward Melville Expo and Asbury.
We ran out of hoodies at Surf Day, unplanned for sure so we tried to rush re-order for RISAA but it could not happen. You would not believe how hard is to find a Fruit of the Loom 12oz heavyweight hoodies in the winter!!! Tommy snagged some zippered ones this time and we will have them at Ward Melville and Asbury with special show pricing.
