Here's how this will work: 1. Keep your eye on your email for the order form, going out over the listserv. 2. Fill out the order form and email it back to me. 3. At the end of ONE WEEK, BY CHAPTER NEXT SUNDAY, we'll tally up who wants what and place group orders. This way you can actually have your gear before the end of the semester. •With regards to T-shirts, we have 2 choices: –Holy Shirt has offered us 5 dollar t-shirts, but they would likely be simple and without very many options. We also can custom order T-shirts online for anywhere in the 8-10 dollar range. –In the second scenario, we can choose from pre-made templates, or, design our own. I would love to see some design ideas from the minds of PHI (three cheers for witty double entendres and logo rip-offs!). •Philings –Is in the works. The deadline for submissions to PHIlings is OCTOBER 21! Please feel free to email Tori email@example.com with suggestions or call 413-329-4670 if there are any last minute ideas you have.
