Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for being so cool at the meeting sunday. The rain sucked but the food and converstion were great. Bummed me out passing Ross S going the opposite direction as I was heading home, maybe next time I'll get to check out his ride (love the CHs!)
George, I'll talk to my sister hopefully today about the shoes (make sure she has them) and how she'll approach it, since technically she can only give her discount to immediate family, sound cool ?.......cousin ;)

Talked to my sister and this is what she'll do. The Flesh shoe by Oakley is considered 'old' and they don't carry them anymore (bad news). Good news, Oakley still makes them so she can order them under the 'Oakley Employee Discount' since resellers are considered employees. Even better, when she orders products this way, she gets them for 10% over wholesale, so basically $40-$45 (she wasn't sure exactly). So she'll order them tomorrow and they will be here in two weeks (is that soon enough?). I told her size 10 (you mentioned that after trying on my 9 1/2). If they don't fit, don't worry I'll buy them. I have two pair, a 10 that I wear with socks for work, and a size 9 1/2 I wear without socks, OK stop laughing. Anyway my size 10 is getting a little ratty and could be replaced (not bad since they were a Christmas gift) and she can then order a 9 1/2 or whatever size you need. When the shoes come in you'll just pay her. Is this making sense? Its actually a better deal to have her order direct. The only draw back is if the product is brand new on the market you wait forever because Oakley fills regular orders before filling employee orders. She ordered a pair of Romeo glasses right after they came out and it took forever for her to get them. She's supposed to bring me a Winter 2001 and Spring 2002 catalogs on Wednesday, I'll bring them to lunch if I have them.

I also wanted the Oakley duffle. Do they have it in stock? I'd like to pick it up before next weekend.
