Alright so this is the deals we got: 

Jackets are $35 each, Sport Bags are $25 each.  I also have t-shirts I can order that are $10 each.  You're on your own for the socks!! I'll give you the info you can get them though.  

I can order the T-Shirts now, a picture of them are on the Facebook page (couldn't get it on this post) if you want to check them out, I think they look really cool.  Comment below the post to let me know if you are or are not interested.  I will order them Saturday after the Cougar Invite if people like them, sooner with the more posts I get.  

Jackets and Sports Bags - I NEED THE MONEY NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY!!!! I'm going to see the embroyder guy that day after practice.  You do not have to get both, but we need at least 45 jackets and 12-15 bags to get this deal.  Any number less than that we are NOT getting the stuff!!!
