I'm sure I recall a dialogue somewhere discussing an LG service where you can order stock item by item for team kit. I think it was Cat5 that mentioned it. I'm fairly certain that Schmunkee said we couldn't use that service but I'm a bit foggy. Maybe Schmunks could remind us what she found out?
I agree that Meldy, Flyers and myself probably don't need any kit anyway, so it makes no odds to us when the kit comes. However, I stand by my comment that it simply makes sense for kit to arrive in time for the start of the triathlon season. It's only starting the process a month earlier, would that be so bad???
Regarding the comment that it's Schmunks who is organising so what she says goes, well yes, obviously, that goes without saying but as Meldy also said, one would hope that someone who is doing something voluntarily would also be doing it with some degree of empathy for the community with whom they are working.
I don't mean that to sound snippy, I can't work out how to express it a different way, because the mirror very much isn't true. The community don't afford Schmunks the same respect by taking responsibility for their own order, responding to messages etc. hence her getting so fed up. Such is the way of the world
What's the turnaround time? Is it 8 weeks or 12 weeks? I would have thought any kit order should arrive in time for the start of the season and my concern is that this won't. I have the fullest respect for Schmunks and the job she is doing but I do feel that the order should arrive in time for the start of the triathlon season (by which I mean start May.) Working to the above timeframe means that any slips in manufacturing or hold ups in shipping from Canada might mean people don't get their kit in time (ie kit may not arrive until June.)
Like I said, would it be possible to negotiate this time frame please?
