Custom BYHI Thunder Hockey Equipment Bag Orders

BYHI members have put together a program to offer Thunder families an opportunity to purchase a custom Thunder Hockey equipment bag.  We have negotiated a bulk-order pricing and options package that allows for your player’s name, number and our organization’s logo to be imprinted on the equipment bag.  Cost for the bag is estimated to be approximately $95 (final pricing may be higher or lower depending on participation).   Please contact Mike Buelow at with questions or to place an order.  The order window closes on April 15th; final payment must be received before that date.  Because of pricing restrictions and screen printing set-up fees, we plan to only make this program available each spring.
