    OCDO Challenge Coin

    Just curious if any of the Mods/Admin know a round about date that the coins should be ready. I would like to purchase some but I would be more inclined to do so if I knew an estimated date of completion. As some others might. I understand that things like this when you don't know what kind of response you will get dates like that can be up in the air depending on how much is tossed in during the initial purchase. Never hurts to ask though.

    A cop pulled me over and said, "Papers..." So I said "Scissors, I win!" and drove away.

    MagiK,

    That makes sense. I will update the coin page with this info as well in case some people don't see this thread.

    The vendor I have selected has an approximately two week lead time after we pay the setup fees. They will then ship the first batch to me and I will package them up to ship to individual purchasers. All in all, I would expect that you guys would receive them no later than the last week of June and potentially much sooner.

    Thanks again for the interest and the support! We really appreciate it! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I was looking for something to validate the challenge coin sale - that it wasn't an advertising scam. By only accepting Pay Pal as payment it looked a little phishy. I'll take the response above from Administrator as a validation & get my coins ordered. However, I just thought you should be aware of my reasoning in case there are others with the same reservations.
    You should see my order today.

    I stand corrected.
    I just ordered 2 coins and was able to use my regular credit card. I ordered extra so that I can give them away at the SW Ohio Meet & Greet on June 23 as door prizes.

    Yes. You will receive two if you paid for one.

    Thanks!

    This is probably too late, but the proofreader missed something.

    "Be" and "is" are short words, yes, but they are verbs. They should be capitalized when using title case.

    It is NOT too late for changes. This is the first draft and I can change whatever needs to be changed.

    What are your thoughts otherwise?

    Update on date

    I just received an email from the manufacturer. I am supposed to receive them on the 17th of July and I will send them on as soon as I have them in hand.

    Thanks so much for everyone's patience!!! It took longer than expected to get the minimum order needed to get the pricing that allowed us to do the two-for one but I hope they are worth the wait.

    This was/is a great idea. I just saw it while browsing, and ordered 2.

    I'm interested to see how these coins turn out. As I did order when it was two for the price of one, hopefully they turn out well.
    Nothing better than a Glock.........except maybe another Glock!
