I went to a ski/snowboard shop by where I live (reading, PA) and I was talking to one of the store clerks about my interest in upgrading my equipment. He told me that in October they have tent sale right outside their shop. My assumption is that they go through a post season clearance sale, and what ever is left over they try to get rid of in october.
I live in Limerick, we're almost neighbors! But I think I'm going to pull the trigger now on some Rome 390s.
