September was so busy preparing for the QSS track and field State Championship that we didn't even get time to send out our monthly letter, so here's the catch up on what you missed.
Queensland's best give it their all for a chance to compete at the Australia Pacific Games
This week the Sportswear team has been track-side cheering on the competitors at the QSS carnival, and making sure that out best and brightest look exceptionally bright in their souvenir merchandise. This years designs were clearly a winner, selling out on the first day of both the two day events.
Having manufactured the products all locally here in Brisbane, stress levels were high as the team was madly trying to make enough to supply all the pre-purchased orders as well as have enough stock to sell on the day.
Despite the workload though, we were also able to help out the Maulers Rugby Team with a late notice order, after a hiccup left them looking like they might have to play without their jerseys. Luckily, we sorted out a solution for the lads in the junior sevens team, and hope they showed them how it's done out their on the field.
In 30 years of supplying Sportswear to Queensland we are proud to say that we have never had a team run onto the field without their uniforms. Delivering product on time is one of our very core values and we intend to keep it that way.
