Althletic clothing with special care?[edit]

Hi! I need some examples of athletic clothing that may need special care when handling/storing/transporting/etc. Could you help me find some? Thank you! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.245.10.203 (talk) 11:02, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

The polyester moisture-wicking clothing produced by Under Armour and similar manufacturers is probably best not placed in a dryer. If I remember correctly, the label indicates that you ought to either hang it to dry or place in a dryer with no heat. Does that work?--droptone (talk) 11:14, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Sportswear companies that use e-procurement as a losgistics strategy?[edit]

Could you give me some example? How do I find out if a company in the athletic clothing industry shares an electronic system with its suppliers? I mean, it is very difficult to find out on the website how a company communicate with its supplier. Could pls you help? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.245.10.203 (talk) 11:49, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Providing you have a good, probably academic reason, such as a thesis, suggest you write to the Distribution Managers of three companies. Two manufacturing and one retail. Simply ask for help and explain why.86.202.31.28 (talk) 14:47, 3 September 2009 (UTC)DT

high altitude churches[edit]

What church building that still has an active congregation in the US is at the highest altitude? Googlemeister (talk) 15:53, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Victory Church in Peveley, Missouri declare on their website that Attitude determines altitude Cuddlyable3 (talk) 16:45, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Considering that the highest point in Missouri is at least 3,000 ft lower then Denver, CO, I don't think that they are much of a contender. Googlemeister (talk) 16:51, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Leadville, Colorado has a number of churches, and lies at an elevation of 10,152 feet above sea level (about a mile higher than Denver). Alma, CO is a higher town, but Google Maps didn't find any churches there. --Sean 17:39, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Update: this article claims that the Annunciation Catholic Church in Leadville is the highest in the nation. --Sean 17:43, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the help. Googlemeister (talk) 18:01, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
