From SAA – Lion Adrian Robinson
Our District Convention in Ipswich is only 6 days away and we have a handful of OPAT and Centennial Shirts available but only in the smallest sizes.  However, we do have a new supply of shirts with an embroidered badge as shown.  All of which will be on sale at a stall at Convention.
If you are attending Convention then you can save time and have certainty by pre-ordering your Shirts by e-mailing your size requirements to  Then all you have to do on the day is ask for your order and pay.
The New Shirts have the same price as the Centennial shirts at £12 for sizes Small to Ex-Large with the 2XL being £13.25. Whilst the remaining OPAT shirts cost £10.
Orders can, of course, be sent by post but the charge for postage and packing is unfortunately £3.50 per shirt.
The shirts stall will also have a number of pins and stickers available for £1 each and at £2 the last few remaining EA bannerettes.  A memento of our 40 years of service.
