    Equipment Sale?

    Several years ago they had an athletic equipment sale Veisha weekend. Took a look at both cyclones.com and the Veisha website, neither mentioned any sale. I did a quick search of the message boards and it looked like the last mention was 2011. Did the periodic equipment sales go away? Seems like they had been done annually for the longest time.
    My kids always liked looking through the stuff for some rare find, like the year they scored chin straps to upgrade their youth football helmet standard issue!

    Re: Equipment Sale?

    Think they stopped it which is a shame. I remember scoring some sweet nike turf shoes for $10 (difficult to find size 13's in styles I like) and a pair of never used receivers gloves for $5. Picked up lots of shirts over the years too. I would be interested as well if anyone knows if they are doing this. A long time ago they did it on central campus which worked OK, then they moved it to the stadium before the spring game and it seemed more like a zoo.

    I called the football office about this very thing last fall. They said they didn't really have enough built up to make it worth while. This was also before the fire at East High and I know they donated a bunch of stuff to them. So I would think supplies might be kind of low.

    Back when I was in school I think they held it at the PE building or maybe State Gym? I really wish it was still around in its old form.

    They haven't had it since they switched to the I State logo.
