    Hi! As AIM session 2 is getting closer I had a question about what shorts to bring. They say to bring gray or navy blue tshirts, but they don't say anything about shorts. Will I be ok with my bright colored running shorts or should I get some that are more plain? Sorry it's kind of a dumb question but I don't want to be that kid...

    My son didn't go to AIM, but is a cadet. It probably, repeat probably, doesn't matter. But, you don't want to be that kid. Get some blue or gray running shorts. Cheap compared to AIM. Good luck.

    It honestly doesn't matter, I saw Aimsters wearing shorts in various colors from muted colors to louder ones. That being said, I would recommend more conservative colors. Red, black, blue, gray, green, etc...those are fine, I would stay away from colors like orange, yellow, pink. It isn't against the rules to have bright colored shorts and you won't be "that guy" but you still might draw attention to yourself.

    Not sure if you're aware or not but we have a Facebook group for AIM called "USCGA AIM 2014" - feel free to join us and as AIM gets closer we'll probably share our packing and other plans.
