Also, I'm in Harleysville, so a bit on the fringes... but will be able to pick up for anybody reasonably close to me who can't make it. Though my car is only likely to be able to fit another 3 or 4 sacks beyond what I bought.

I don't really care where I need to go...I just have no way of making a pick up work this week. Closer the better but I just need someone to help me out this time.

I'll definitely take some D2 from you! count me in for at least 2 jars. I would offer to hold some grains for those who need, but I'm all the way in the new brunswick, nj area so it's not exactly ideal for you PA folks. See ya'll on Friday

Would someone who has done a group buy before please post a "what you should know" for the newbies like myself? Stuff like
-should we be prepared to split bags there
-does everyone just grab their grain and take off?
-Is there a window or do you need to be there at 8:00PM sharp?

Thanks!

Dave

Dave,
If you are splitting grain (looks like one bag), you'll need to bring something to put it in. Most people use the Homer Buckets you can get from Home Depot. They are pretty cheap and have nice sealing lids.
As far as grabbing your grain, all the grain will be laid out according to brand so it will be pretty easy to find your grain. If you have any questions while you're there, anyone will be willing to offer a hand.
As far as the pick time... I pick the grain up just before the pickup. Sometimes i'm there before 8, sometimes a little after. Either way, we are usually there for about 30-45mins so being there right at 8 isn't completely important. On the other side of the coin, you don't want to keep others waiting if you are splitting grain. I'd say 8-8:15 to be safe.

If you think you might not make it on time, just give me a call so i don't load up your grain and take off to Mexico!

You've been warned. He is known for taking off to Mexico with your grains. For some reason, he prefers the water there. Don't ask me...

I just wanted to say thanks for organizing this. As my first time chipping in to one of these, it was a very smooth process. I look forward to meeting everyone!
