706 Gear Store extended to May 10th - need to reach minimum order

Less than 20 items have been ordered for the 706 Gear Store, far less than the minimum the vendor needs to be able to fill these orders. In the hopes of getting near or reaching the minimum, we are re-opening the store for one more week.

If there are not enough orders by May 10th, we run the risk of no order being able to be fullfilled. If this is the case, refunds will be distributed.


Orders can be placed at this link.


Orders will be shipped to the SSC for distribution on June 6th.
