Internal Ski Swap – If you have gear or clothing (including team clothing) which has been outgrown please bring it Saturday. It might be a good time to figure out what you will need for the coming season. Coaches are around at the beginning of the lunch break for advice.
Telemark Team Clothing has been sorted out today. There is a discount code for the delivery if one orders before October 29th. The discount code is TELEMARK2020. Details about the clothing are found on our website here! This year there is a Puffy Jacket option which will only be available until October 29th. The Puffy Jacket will also be delivered to the club in one group shipment instead of the individually.
