Fleet Feet – Meet and Greet Night – 2/19/14

Our sponsor Fleet Feet (604 Washington St. in Hoboken) is having a meet and greet for all the local run/tri clubs on Wednesay 2/19 at 7pm.  They will be conducting a sale that night for the clubs (25% – 40% off apparel, $10 off footwear and 10% off accessories).  The HoHA’s are bringing the beer, the Elysianettes are bringing desserts and GC Tri is bringing some wine.  It’s an excellent opportunity to meet some of the athletes in the other clubs in town, enjoy a beverage or two and take advantage of a great sale.  Hope you can join us!
