Thank you for the supports and for joining the group order, we have a good number of participants this year.
My apologies for not able to get back to everyone as soon as I could, it's been a long day and there are so many messages to reply to! I believe I have replied everyone now.
The deadline for sending the payment for the value of the plants is moved to tomorrow instead, please send the money via paypal (Friend only!) or e-transfer by tomorrow noon (12am PST).
I would like to remind everyone to read carefully the first post of this thread to make sure we are on the same page!
The package has arrived. All the import processes should be all done now.
Note from Willy:
A few people have messaged me asking if I am expecting any donation or tips for organizing the group order, so I'd like to reply here:
While I am really grateful for any appreciation (just a thank you card would totally make my day!), the short answer is no, I'm not expecting any donation or tips for organizing the group order. I'm just doing this in hope of seeing many more new CPs available on our CPSC, as well as in Canada in general, in the near future. A few good friends here would know that I am not growing/ selling CPs and learning TC for profit. Profit is nice, it surely help supporting the hobby, however, as a design engineer, I get paid much more if I just spend my time and resources doing consulting works or just focusing on my day job. My main motivation is that I have fell in love with CPs a few years ago, I want to collect and share with others, spreading the love for these wonderful little monsters.
To be honest, I'd still be importing plants from BCP even if there's no one joining the group order; so with more people sharing the import cost, we could go with the most luxurious and fancy shipping option. In our case, the package has arrived and processed in 4 calendar days! That's impressive.
