my schedule is pretty flexible, i could probably drive to raleigh and pick up bags for the charlotte area if that would help people out.If everyone can agree on a pick-up date and place (preferrably vic. Raleigh), I'd be willing to order. I'd have to have a firm comittment via pre-pay though.
I would be willing to commit to 2 bags and will gladly pre-pay. I live in Wake County so Raleigh area is no problem. I have fairly flexible schedule. Just let me know how to pre-pay and when and where to make the pick up.If everyone can agree on a pick-up date and place (preferrably vic. Raleigh), I'd be willing to order.

Good call foltster, pimp it big! It is Dallas' place after all!If any of you guys are not aware of this event Saturday the 3rd, it is in Raleigh too.
I'm almost positive you can do that but has anyone called to verify or talked to someone with prior, first-hand experience? There have been several group buys on HBT but I've not tracked any of them other than small scale ones.Are we sure that a palette is allowed to be a mix-n-match of different brands?
3) I think you need an offload site with a loading dock. the pallet will come on a semi, and they will just pallet-jack it off the truck. I *think* you can pay extra and they will deliver on a truck with a lift gate, or will allow you to hand-offload (driver has to wait around while you do this, so they charge more). One of the NJ guys in our buy works for a trucking company, so delivery was a snap...it was delivered to one of their truck depots during the day...we came there that night and they fork-lifted the pallet into the parking lot where we divided up the goods.
Good luck! and Happy Brewing!!!
