June 2022 Club Meeting Video

Here is the video of the PVMAC June 2022 Club meeting held on the 14th. There were lots of views of the May club meeting (84 to date), but the average viewing time was only about 8.5 minutes out of 45 total running time. This time, I've edited the video down to 10 minutes so it's more in line with the viewing trends of our audience.

PVMAC Shirts now available

2022 Shirt1Its been a long time in the making, but I'm excited to announce....That you can now order PVMAC shirts. We have made these available online through Teespring on our own PVMAC online store at https://pvmac.creator-spring.com
Teespring prints your shirt order on demand, and ships them to your door. After reviewing the samples today, we are very pleased with the quality and outcome.
Each shirt features a small PVMAC logo on the front left, and an epic P-40B low pass at our Prado airfield with the large PVMAC logo on the back.
There several options to choose from and a number of colors options.

 

  • The Classic Tee is only $18 + tax & shipping and available in several dark and light colors of your choice. These are 100% Cotton and a classic standard fit.
  • The Classic Long Sleeve is $22 + tax & shipping and also available in several dark and light colors. This is also 100% cotton and a classic standard fit.
  • The Premium Tee is $23 + tax & shipping and features more color options than the classic tees. These are 90% cotton and 10% polyester, a slightly softer, premium feel and a slimmer fit.

(2XL + sizes are an additional $2 charge, however its only reflected in the total at checkout. I have a ticket with teespring to see why its not reflected in the cart price.)
Please check sizing charts before ordering.
Teespring accepts credit card, Paypal and Apple Pay.
Keep in mind they print these shirts on demand on a 3 day cycle, which starts after the 1st shirt is ordered and standard shipping is not the quickest. It took me a total of 15 days to get the samples, so please do not expect Amazon quick shipping, unless you pay for expedited shipping.
