MSCtv Gravenhurst Triathlon Race Preview and Training Video

Tommy Ferris of Ignition Fitness put together another fantastic course overview in 2012 for this event. Check it out





With the tightening of everyones budget for recreational activities these days, My Sports Shooter would like to announce the following BIG cut to all our prices.  We are responding to a continuing trend and would like to consider ourselves industry leaders in recognizing what our customers want.

Starting with the Gravenhurst Triathlon until the end of the season, we have cut almost all our prices in half.  That’s right 50% off!  You don’t need a coupon, just check out as you would normally.  For example our high resolution digital images used to be $19.99.  They are now $10.  Our Medium Resolution Archive (all your images in medium format) used to be $49.99.  They are now $25!  Prints as low as $3.00 as well.

To be fair, this pricing is in effect from the Gravenhurst Triathlon forward.  There will be no reduction in pricing for the previous races from this year.  It simply wouldn’t be fair to those who have previously purchased their images from those races.

I invite you enjoy the new prices and hope it helps to fit your budget a little better!

See you on the course!

Mike Cheliak and the My Sports Shooter Team
