You might have already heard, but.... the Outdoors Club is establishing a sweeet Brand of the Month deal through College Outside! Every month we will highlight a particular brand, which we are able to get products at steep discounts (think wholesale prices here) and extend those savings to you through a group order (s/o to College Outdoors, the real MVP).
Our first Brand of the Month is La Sportiva, a company that makes quality climbing, hiking, and running shoes. If your looking to hit the crags once PA finally dries out and hit the gym in the meantime, this is definitely something you should take advantage of.
Here is the link to the items:
Here is the link to order items:
If you would like to be a part of the group order, please fill out the order form, and give me cash or check (made out to the University of Pittsburgh) for the correct amount (as listed in the items spreadsheet). I will be at the Tree's Hall Climbing Wall the following dates and times to collect money and answer questions:
Friday, Feb. 23 2-7pm
Saturday, Feb 24 1-6pm
Monday, Feb 26 8-10pm
Wednesday, Feb 28 4-7pm
There are no returns or exchanges, so make sure you choose the appropriate size/style/color of whatever you want. All orders and money should be turned in no later than Thursday March 1st (1 week from today). The gear should arrive just after Spring Break!
If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, let me know!
All the best,
P.s. Have a great day!
P.p.s. To all the folks trying to unsubscribe to our mailing list, we will miss you dearly, but here is how: http://pittoutdoors.blogspot.com/p/faq.html

This is a sweet deal and definitely something worth taking advantage of while you're still in school. Gear can get expensive, but the stock market is rigged, banks are ponzi schemes, and bitcoin is made up, so really the only financially responsible thing to do is invest in cams.You guys are about to be so stoked. The POC is now a member of College Outside, a pro-deal site exclusively for students. This means that as long as you are a student and a part of the Pitt Outdoors Club, you get access to 25-50% discounts on top outdoor brands. College Outside has gear for all activities - anything from camping to skiing to ice climbing to mountain biking - from the biggest brand names (Black Diamond, Gregory, Marmot, to name a few). All active members will receive an email with your own personal login information soon. This gives you access to the online store. Go check out College Outside on Facebook & Instagram for the latest updates, discounts, and competitions.If you are new to the club and looking to join for the spring semester, dues are only $10. Waivers will be available at the meeting or on the POC website. Membership gives you access to our trips and free gear for borrow from our gear room.
