Hi Diana Stewart
Good afternoon Team 1790,
We have a short turnaround for this…
ALL ORDERS ARE DUE NEXT THURSDAY, 06 MAR 2014!
As most of you know, Petty Officer Travis Obendorf passed away on 18 DEC 2013 from injuries he sustained while engaged in a Search & Rescue mission in the Bering Sea, 30 miles north of Amak Island, Alaska.
This year, Team 1790 is running in honor of PO Obendorf. You will notice that the PO Obendorf logo that we have all become familiar with in the last couple of months will be on our Team's Runner Bibs, and Follow Vehicle. Every single baton that is used in the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay race will also have PO Obendorf's name on it!
In addition to all of this, PO Obendorf will also be honored during the B2V Awards Ceremony.
For those that are new to the team, it is a tradition that teams wear their team gear to the B2V Award Ceremony on Sunday night to represent their agencies. Every year, someone from our team designs the Team 1790 T-Shirt. The Team 1790 T-Shirt is worn Sunday evening to the B2V Award Ceremony. This is where we take our team picture.
