anyone wanting to race

I'm finally back in town from living the rock star life style. I spoke to JC Shores who's parents own the skating rink here in town. He is living in Kansas now but is always back in town, He loves what we have going on with our trails and riders. He ask me about putting together a MTB/Cross race team for next year. He is wanting to do jerseys and everything so we look bonified. There will be some cost on the jerseys about $40 if we cant get additional local sponsers to pitch in (Craig we would even put your logo on the jersey..hint hint) JC said he will sometimes pick up entrey fees through his company for certain races. Does anyone know anyone else we can tap to sponser the team in any way? If you are interesed in the team please respond to this poast with your jersey size. Just realize you will need to pick up what ever the jersey cost will be after sponsers chip in.

I think that Water Doctor would make a fine sponsor.

You may want to call him JP, and not JC, unless he changed his name. You know what I mean Shane? the I-don't-answer-2-just-anything hippie

The hippy told me that he will only do it if he can get some assless shorts.....

If you want lots o sponsors, great. If ya want grassroots racing, great. I don't think they go together though. Do we have anything to offer sponsors? Hippie

Seaman and Schuske will cover the cost of the first 10 jerseys
($400.00)in exchange for a large logo centered on the back of the jersey (not the lower pockets)
Also, I would suggest the race team to be named "STJMTB Racing" with that logo prominently displayed on the jerseys.

Hoppe, have you seen the slow moving fat kids pic? It might be fun to put on there somewhere. RT

choppe said...

Have not seen it but coming from you it has to be worthy

JDOUG said...

If we can get the hard breating fat kids that would be awesome!!! I love it...

Also, I would like to get the MS logo on it... I will pay out of my pocket for it myself if I have to...

what about a picture of RT buttering up before a ride. those photos are classic and might be a nice conversation starter...

although, you probably wouldn't want it anywhere near the hard breathing fat kid.

Hey guys! It is JP, aka, JP Shores...I have wanted to put together a team for awhile. After racing for way too many years now on the road and more recently getting back to the mtn. bike and cross scene, I wanted to get a few cool guys, gals, kids, and apparently hippies?? together to get this thing started in 2009. I have a jersey design already, but we can always make room for more sponsors. I have been communicating with Shawn and should have a jersey design too him soon. If anyone has a sponsor interested, please contact shawn. If they are throwing some money into the jersey it will cut down costs of the jersey's for sure. At the moment they are at $45.00 bucks each...(that is our cost) You can order bib's, shorts, vest, and tights if needed on the first order. Ok, I am rambling too much! This team's focus is on having fun, whether you race once or none this next year, I just wanted to get something going for 2009. Here is my e-mail if anyone wants to catch-up, shoresmed@yahoo.com
I will be in St. Joe to ride soon and over the christmas holiday. Hope to catch-up with you all soon!
