ooooh I may "need" something and I have a friend that would possibly hold stuff for me in Victoria...when are you anticipating placing the order?

I will say I ordered from Greg (Coral Master) before and his frags are STUNNING! VERY well packaged and exactly as gorgeous as they look! Highly recommended!

Brad, what did you order?

You should have started a thread - I would have been all over the order if I had known you were ordering as well.

I don't have a specific date in mind. I'll see how many people are interested and once we've established a list of interested members with a list of what they want then we can pull the trigger.

Just to let you know I will be unavailable to ship from Sept 11 - 17 as I will be in Toronto on business. That should give you lots of time to put a huge group order together:wink:
Everything on the site is available right now except for the "shag carpet stag" which is temp sold out for a month or so. Thanks for your interest.

I'm down. I have room in the frag tank if anyone needs someone to hold them. My tenant is from CR, if it works out that she is going to visit her parents, delivery might be possible?

I ordered about 6 or 7 pieces, placed the order with someone else, so we had shipping covered. Never even crossed my mind to start a thread, as there was an Island delivery not too long ago.
I get the feeling though, that Greg has other stuff not listed that I want, so another order might be not too far off, space permitting :)

There are several reefers I've sold to who live in the Valley that all told me they were happy with their purchases, I would think it wouldn't be to hard to get a group order going.:wink:

Ok, so now that more people are showing some interest let's start to compile a list of what everyone wants so we can check availability and start firming up some numbers.

Here's what I intend to get:
A. nana
A. aculeus
Purple Passion Digitata
Pocillipora Damicornis
Turquoise Mille
Blue Tip Green Slimer
Blue Tip Stag

Greg,

Does that mean that if 20 people all want let's say a frag of the A. nana that there will be 20 available?

Excellent point, but if get 20 people to join in with this order I'll do all I can to find a way to make it happen.:wink:
Your point about availability is certainly valid, thank you. No problems with the lists so far.

The list of his available frags can be seen here: http://canada.frags.org/memberfragslist.php?id=7726&limit=10&fld_order=FragName&order=ASC&offset=0
I believe most people do this but please use my http://coralmaster.com/ website as the "frags.org" is ok for the most part but hasn't been updated for awhile. Coralmaster.com is very current including specials for September. Thanks.:biggrin:
No availability problems so far.

What date are you looking at for shipping? And where and when will we be able to pick up our individual orders?

Canadian
09-14-2008, 01:29 AM
Greg's away until the 17th. So I guess we can do any time after that. For the next two weekends I have to be in Vancouver so I'd prefer to not have delivery occur on a Friday. Right now we only have 3 people who have expressed interest. If we don't have any more by the 17th I guess we can just go ahead with things.

I live in Langford (yeah I know. . . ) and I don't mind picking things up. Typically I work from 10-6 but my fiance is done by 1.

Greg, what days do you normally ship? I can ask Brad when his order arrived to get an idea of what time things actually show up in Victoria.

I'll do some more research on things so we have a better idea about what to expect for time of arrival and time in transit.

Okeedokee. Is everyone who expressed interest still interested? We haven't had any new posts in the last few days so I'm assuming we've enticed everyone we're going to.

I think the easiest way to do this (as long as it works for Greg) is have each person pay for their order separately with Greg but identify that it's part of the Victoria group order. We can have one of us pay for the shipping costs as part of one order and then divide the cost of shipping equally between those who ordered so that at once the parcel has been picked up we can collect payment for the shipping costs. It's probably easiest if the person who is going to receive the parcel is the person who initially covers the cost of shipping. I don't mind doing it as long as the parcel arrives before I start work at 10. Otherwise I don't finish working until 6 and won't be home to receive the package during typical UPS/Fedex delivery times and that could lead to a debacle trying to get the package from the depot that day (this is based on experience unfortunately :( )

Does that work for everyone (Greg included)?

I'd prefer to have shipping for early next week if at all possible. If anyone else has suggestions or other preferences please post them here.

Canadian

I guess I could also have the parcel delivered to the clinic - it would just have to sit in my office until I finish seeing patients and then we could meet at my place to divide up the orders.

I am back in Calgary and will be ready to ship early next week. All interested parties please get in touch with me via PM or email me at info@coralmaster.com so I can get everyone sorted out. If the people who have shown interest are still a go you are well past the minimum for free shipping. Please let me know. I have no problem sending the package to your work if that's what you would like.
Thanks,
Greg

I wouldnt mind holding your stuff Lori..
right now I have a pm out to Canadian to see where his office is and stuff.. then I will know if I can get there or not on delivery day.

depending on the day.. and IF I order I would consider having the stuff shipped here.. if downtown is convenient to everyone. IF I do this Art is always home till 3pm and I can be there after that.. so we wont miss the shipment. I will let you know after I hear back from Canadian.

09-19-2008, 03:46 AM
Shelley has suggested she would be willing to have things shipped to her place and can ensure that someone will be home to accept delivery. So I don't mind coming in to town if that makes things easier for everyone else with respect to delivery and pickup.

If we can firm things up in terms of a day for delivery some time this evening then we can all make our orders tomorrow (I think Rick has already made his order) and then Greg will have sufficient notice to get things out so we can have delivery for Tuesday (the day Shelley would prefer).

Please post here when you've read this post so we can make sure everyone who said they wanted in is, and we can firm up place and date of delivery.
