Unless we get a last minute surge in orders, we might want to set a cut off date sometime after Labor Day. Chief Kellen, are you still planning on placing an order?

Just updated the spreadsheet around 9:15 pm Chicago time (9/01/11). we're at 27 bags. let's see if we can get 42 bags, folks!

Remember, we need at least 40 bags to get the price break of 2200 pounds. Anything less and the prices are higher due to the lower quantity break.

I would vote to just let it ride until it hits the 40 bag mark. I have some people in my club that might be interested, but they're farther West than I am, so I don't know about coordinating the pick up. I'll let them know, but my other friend is on vacation right now until next week sometime.

I'd vote to wait too. We're having a club meeting on the 11th of Sept. Niilo and I could make sure to advertise it then.

eh. I rescind my vote to wait since I realized the discount is only 3 cents to the lb. If you get two sacks you'll be saving a whopping 3 dollars. It's a nice break but I don't see us accumulating 13 more sacks any time soon at this rate. You won't see much more from me and Niilo's guys at least is my guess.

As much as the price break would be nice for a full pallet, I'm more than willing to pay an extra ~3 bucks per sack if we don't get there. Maybe we should give it another week to ten days, and then just go forward with the buy.

Demon, should we make the cut off date next monday, september 12th?

Everyone, keep in mind that the delivery cost per bag is $78/n where n = number of bags ordered.

OK. September 12th is the cutoff. Everyone review your order. Now is a good time to maybe increase your order since this may be the last buy (that I'm involved with anyway) until next spring.
