Default September Sod Farm - Red Baron Group Buy

Hi Everyone,

The theme for September’s WOOSH Sod Farm launch is “Red Baron” (Gliders). We discussed a group buy a while back at a meeting, and IIRC, I volunteered to organize a group buy.

I know it’s 5 months away, but I’d like to get the order in soon, to give them time to put together more kits if needed, shipping time, delivery time to you, and still plenty of time to build. I’ll set a tentative deadline of the April 23rd meeting.

So, I’m going to place a group order with Squirrel Works of their Red/Mega Baron gliders. Let me know if you want one, and what size (Red Baron / Mega Baron). If you’d rather have the “Dogfight”, that would be a great complement to the Red Barons. See Squirrel Works for details , under the 2 “Glider” tabs.

Red Baron - $15
Mega Baron - $40
Dogfight - $30 (extra fighter pairs $12)

I’ll take the cash payment only when I deliver the goods to each of you at launches or meetings. I’ll split the shipping among everyone, so the more folks that order, the less we’ll all pay for shipping!

Just respond to this thread, or PM me. Let’s see those requests come in!

-Paul

If doing a group club buy I'd bet he'd offer a discount if you asked.

This reminds me of the rmr Buying Frenzy Fad I initiated and was quite successful for years and with many vendors. The whole idea was to give them new customers at full price but on a specific product for a specific time frame to facilitate production.

Spread this to other launch sites and websites as a "thing". BFF rocked!

YORF could pick one thing a month and keep BFF alive.

I gave away free (as in beer) AIR-5 tech reports on Boosted Dart Theory.

Hysterical Jerry

Great idea Scott. Don offered 10% off the group buy if I get enough WOOSH participation! Still plenty of time to get your orders in, I've received a good number of requests for both Mega and Red Barons, we're getting close to critical mass.

Don would like me to pass on that for the inexperienced, the smaller Red Baron is much easier to fly, the Mega more challenging. The Dogfights are even easier to to fly. I may have to get one of each!

A minor clarification, I'll deliver to New Berlin launches, Bong launches, and club meetings. If you can't make any of these in the May/June/July timeframe, let me know.

Thanks for all the interest so far!

Only 4 days left, the order gets placed after this week’s meeting. I have 21 gliders on the list so far!
