Pin Sales at ISU

Each year NYSOMA takes some of the remaining pin stock to World Finals to provide some last minute purchases if you are interested. There will be three sales hours where you can take advantage of this. We keep this activity low key since it is happening on the University campus. The location will be at one of the Officials hotels. We will not know which one until 2 weeks before the start of WFs. You can take an “Officials” bus to the hotel, up the steps into the lobby entrance and look to the right to find a small group of people with NY shirts or hats in the lobby area. Don’t ask at the front desk, they won’t know anything about it. Ashley Jacobson will be running the sale. Payment by cash or check. Times are:

  • Roughly 1:30 to 2:30 Wednesday afternoon so it is before the Coaches meeting that starts at 3:00 and goes to 4:30.
  • Thursday from ~7:30 to 8:30 PM
  • Friday from ~7:30 to 8:30 PM
