    I'm probably going to end up going to HayMerch like I did for the first round. They seemed to have a good setup.

    If you don't have a job that requires you to be at work at 2pm.

    I think I got mine around 5pm last time...not sure. But I think I'm off for Prez Day anyways. I hate working corporate, but there are some nice perks.

    I just completed the Dr series, thanks to some awesome BAs on here. If you ever want to get them all I.would start now. the Dr 1s are few and far between. Took me almost 2yrs to get them all.

    DonD hooked me up with the #1. I did a 1-11 series back in July of 2011. After that I had a 2-12 and Don completed it for me. He's the man! I've had all of the 2-12 since the day I bought them. Didn't have to trade for any but the #1 for the second set.

    I recently traded away a bunch of 7s, 10s, 11s, and a 12 to a BA poster to start him on his way to getting some older ones.

    Added the plus because I don't know the cost. Just BM me and we can work it out. I azzyed up Pumpkinator this year and sorry for turning your handle into a verb (I take both credit for and shame from this fact)

    Lucky you. Did you get it from Star Pizza?

    They tweeted they were selling it today and a few people got some bottles before they were told to stop selling it until Monday. Bummer.
