Which things are you interested in?

We usually do occasional small runs of different items like T-shirts, signs, ballcaps, decals, etc. The parts items such as STB's or ported/powdercoated intakes are always available.

We will be offering 2004 TCCA Calendars today or tomorrow. If there are other items you are interested in just let me know.

Jeez, I completely missed this one.


The TCCA store will eventually be a link on the banner, but for now we're just selling the items in the forums.

For decals, PM me.

For calendars, see the thread regarding them.

For banners, contact Patrick Norris. He may have some left. We will soon have other banners available too.

Ballcaps I'm not sure on, Doc was handling those.

I'm working on getting some sweatshirts and tees made up.

LONG VERSION
Let me try to give a little better detail on TCCA items. Our items are usually short run items, meaning they are limited in supply and availability. Here's why...

We would love to have a store full of TCCA items that people can shop whenever they want but these items cost money to develop, design or produce. Because of the set up costs and other related expenses, we have not been able to build up an inventory.

I'd love to go out and buy 500 ballcaps and have them in stock whenever people decided they wanted to buy one but the funds for these items has to come from somewhere. About 1 - 1 1/2 years ago I started getting items made, then rolling over any profits from those items into other items. This was to reduce the costs and allow us to buy in larger quantities, getting members the best prices we could. The problem with that is sales were stagnant at best.

I started by offering items that I did -out of pocket- to try to raise funding figuring I would get back what I put into it (reimbursement) and using what was left towards other items. Well, that didn't work out too well. The clubs operating expenses also increased which eats away at the funds for merchandise. I started trying group purchases where I asked the members what they would like, conducting polls or whatever to know what items to get next. That also did not fare too well but we keep trying.


SHORT VERSION:

If more people would buy what we do get made, the prices would be lower (per item) and we could get even more items made. We will continue to do what we can to get items made for people but without support from the membership for these items, very few of us here can afford to do a production run of any real size and be able to sit on the inventory waiting for it to sell. I will say the calendar support has been pretty good so far.

I will try to get more ballcaps made in the next couple of weeks as well as some other items. Hang in there and keep watching out for merchandise announcements. I should have several items available in February. I hope we can get some decent sales from the pending items as the tiny mark-up we do will be going towards the national meet expenses this summer. Lots of items to get for that.

I think Mr. SABLE PL's problem is that he lives in Poland... so how does one who is currently in Poland get TCCA things? :huh:
