Collated "Group Buy" Volico paint request for Rickmeister

Thanks for a quick response on reimbursement. Much appreciated.

One left to come in and a private nudge will help I'm sure, plus the one AWOL member who the Admin team know and are helping with.

Erling has the parcel tracking numbers and in my experience, tracked items go through quicker than untracked so it could be with him end of this week all being well.

Erling also has photos of my checking and cross checking as well.

Phew. That was all a bit mad but it's done on time before I go away.

Paint is already en route to UK. So would say there is no chance of the order being changed at this stage. The closing date was clearly stated as 12th September. Your only hope is someone willing to sell one of their cans to you that ordered Soul. Failing that you will have to either order yourself or wait until there is another group buy at some as yet not even talked about future date.

If that one can is Soul I would be very happy to purchase it 👍🏻
Yes, it is. The AWOL members can is indeed Soul. The price is what they would have paid at €26.90.
They have had a few nudges and been on here since this has been raised so for me, you could claim that one.
Please work with Erlingtheyounger to get it sent to you.

Please mail me at rick.h.harrison@gmail.com and we can arrange payment.

Morning Rick,

I'm sure more thanks will be on the way once the packages arrive and Erling @Erlingtheyounger has completed his generous offer of distribution, but can I add my appreciation for your efforts on this. Working with so many different members to collate payments and swapping details is time consuming. Yet again you have gone above and beyond, your helpfulness are a credit to you which we are all thankful for.

Kind regards,

Tom

I'd like to echo Tom's thanks to you @Rickmeister for the commendable effort you put in for the benefit of UK members, for this Volico order and for your periodic AT orders too. I'm glad that we've collectively made it reasonably straightforward on this occasion - and so we should, as there seems to be nothing in this for you. Admirable selflessness 👍

@Erlingtheyounger thank you also for handling the UK redistribution on this Volico order, again very much in the Club ethos. I assume you will let us all know postage costs for the UK redistribution?

I'm really interested as to how you are getting away with posting rattle cans, I always thought it was illegal to post such things in the UK.
Only reason I know this is because I wanted to post a rattle can to Terry who bought Frankie but found I couldn't.
Clearly you must know something I don't.

I wasn’t aware of this being an issue tbh. I’ve received and posted such things on a few occasions without issue however if the post office won’t accept them then we’ll have to come up with a a different plan. Here’s hoping not 🤞

From the Royal Mail website:

Aerosols for any other purpose (including spray paints, lacquers, solvents, air fresheners, oven cleaners, etc)

  • International - Not allowed in the mail
  • UK - Not allowed in the mail
 
After a lot of research and digging around I found this statement.

Within the UK you can send for toiletry or medicinal purposes (including deodorants, body sprays, hair sprays, shaving and hair removal creams and medicinal aerosols for prevention or cure such as flea sprays).

So it's up to you if when asked what the content is if you say one of the above.

The give away is the ball bearing in the can, if they hear it they will ask at the post office desk what's in the package, some of the above will no doubt have a ball bearing inside but if you tell them it's one of the above item's and said item is on the ok list then they should accept it.
