Written by Tony Dennis on . Posted in Announcements

We have been working for awhile on a replacement for the physical store that is more cost effective.  In cooperation with Lands' EndWe think we've finally got a solution working.

In order to shop for Apparel at the site, follow the steps below, or use the following link:



You should end up here.


After that, create your own account and shop as if it was a normal eCommerce shopping site.  You can apply the CAA logo to a selection of clothing, then change its color and position.  After that, check out and have the merchandise shipped to your door.

If you have any problems, please contact either Dean Meyers or myself (Tony Dennis) for help.

Have Fun, and we'll see you at the club!
