RHS Custom Covered Bridge T-shirts are now on sale in the HORNET STORE on TeamApp.  We have already sold more than 50 shirts!  This is a great t-shirt to wear during the Covered Bridge Meet as well as other RHS events for years to come!  The shirt is super-soft and lightweight.  Sales will close on Saturday, 8/26 at midnight.  I (Ann Vance) will have a sample of the shirt at the meet if you’d like to see/feel it.  I will hang out around the RHS tent between races.  We will NOT be selling this Green version of the shirt at the meet – this is special order only.

Please see yesterday’s NEWS item in TeamApp regarding more information about the Covered Bridge Meet on Friday 9/8 and Saturday 9/9.
