Hi BSV friends and family,
The kit ordering details have been finalized and Pearl Izumi’s website is now open for BSV orders!
You can order as many clothing pieces as you like, but all members must order at least one current jersey. If you already have one from last year, you can order a different upper body piece ( ie, vest, jacket, l/s jersey).  We want to make sure we represent our current sponsors well, by making sure everyone has current Blue Sky Velo kit pieces!
Here’s your link to place your clothing order: (Window closes on Feb. 14th)
If you’be been thinking of joining Blue Sky (or haven’t re-upped for 2013), please do so NOW! Fees are only $40.  You won’t find a better cycling club bargain anywhere! Here’s your link to sign up:
