Tina Weal has been working very hard behind the scenes costing, gathering quotes, collaborating over design and finding sponsors. The initial e mail asking about interest in the shirts came back with thirty very interested members and we believe there will be even more interested once they see the sample shirt we will have ready soon after the season starts again.
Sponsors so far are New Look Doors and Windows, Cover Up Upholstery, Rock Coate and Signs R Us. Our hope is that the sponsorship will be able to cover a large percentage of the cost of each shirt so we are looking to get as much sponsorship funding as possible so that we are able to order more shirts.
If you have any contacts that you think may be able to help the club please approach them with a guarantee that they will get space on our striking new Club shirt. A $500 contribution from one or two more sponsors would be ideal but half of that from a few businesses would be gratefully received.
The total cost per shirt was looking to be approx $100 and with sponsorship that could drop right down to $50 per shirt.
The shirt will be mostly ice blue with black and white. It has a simple design and will feature Mt Tauhara. As well as the sample shirt, the variety of sizes will be available so you will know exactly what you are purchasing as you pre pay with your order. Your shirt can be customised with your name on the back across the shoulders at no extra cost.
