Summer Party: New Pacific Gravity gear: Lanyards and Glass holders!

The last of our PG gear that will be for sale at this year’s Summer Party is our new Lanyards with beer glass holders.  These things are extremely slick.  The lanyards are custom embroidered with our logo and name along the leash and come with a small black plastic ring that you can use to hold your taster glass in it.  In August we will be handing out larger aluminum rings to those of you who purchased lanyards from the club at the Summer Party that will fit our new PG glassware.  Here is a picture of the new lanyards:

Lanyards will be for sale for $10 including both the plastic and aluminum ring (handed out at the August club meeting).  If you buy a glass and a lanyard at the same time the price for the two items is discounted to $14.

Is it Saturday yet?

Summer Party: New Pacific Gravity gear! Glasses!

We are now officially one week away from our Summer Party.  We had our planning meeting at Dean’s house this past Thursday and I am really excited about the food lineup that Ian is putting together and some of the raffle prizes that we are going to be giving away throughout the party.

In addition to the raffle prizes, we ordered some new Pacific Gravity gear that will be for sale during the party.  Last night when I got home I found the boxes for our new PG glassware sitting at my front door!  Here is a picture of the glasses:

2014 Pacific Gravity Glasses!

2014 Pacific Gravity Glasses!

These glasses will be for sale at the front gate when you arrive.  They are the same 10oz glasses that I showed at the June club meeting at Neil’s house and they look awesome!  We have a few more PG items that will be for sale at the party as well which I will post about this week.


Just a quick reminder that this party is best when we have a lot of volunteers to help us put everything together.  Please read through this post from earlier this week outlining the help that we will need from all of you to help make this party awesome.  For those of you who have already volunteered, thank you!

The event page is located HERE.  Like last year, entry to the party is free for paid club members and there is a $10 entry fee for all guests.  This $10 fee goes towards helping the club host events in the future for all of you.

Cheers everyone – see you soon!
