I'm following the other group buy discussions, and expect to run another later this year, assuming they continue and the policies being discussed seem reasonable. I've got ideas on how to make the spreadsheet easier to use and assemble upon coordinator receipt. I'm also hoping to get my USPS account straightened out (no, it is still not allowing me to pay for shipping on-line).

Thank you to all those that participated, assisted or inquired about this group buy.
