URGENT: Discount on Vipers available through 8/2

We are coordinating a BULK ORDER for Vipers – the black marching shoes required by ALL instrumentalists in the Spirit of Jupiter.  (Please note that color guard members wear DIFFERENT shoes which are to be determined.)

To take advantage of this deal, you MUST ORDER YOUR SHOES by 11:59 PM (CST) on Saturday, August 2.  Using the bulk discount code saves you $9.25.  All shoes ordered using this code will be shipped to Diana Johnson-Ford and distributed at school.  No discount is available on orders placed August 3 or later.

Please note that ALL Spirit of Jupiter instrumentalists are required to have Vipers as part of the marching band uniform.  No other types of shoes are acceptable, and these shoes are NOT available locally.  Other online sites can be used to purchase Vipers as listed on the Uniforms page of our web site.

Participation in the bulk order is not mandatory, but we offer it for your convenience.  Please follow the instructions carefully!
