Tango Mike P.O. Box

Post by 26TM1009 » 20 Jul 2018, 19:49

Could anyone confirm when the Tango Mike P.O. Box was last checked and how often cards are sent out to members?

I have sent out quite a few cards over the last 3 months and have yet to receive anything back :roll: :cry: - so just wanted confirmation that the group P.O. Box is definitely operational.

Thanks in advance.

Still operating matie.

We operate the box with another group. Someone from their group collates all the cards for TM1 members and then sends them in batches to Simon. Simon then distributes them to our members. If its been a slow month or two, they may just be waiting for enough cards to make a batch worth white. Postage is expensive so if we can bundle cards up that keeps the costs down.

You could contact Simon direct (Transmission1) and ask if there's anything waiting for you 8)

Thanks for the quick reply Craig - good to know it is still running - happy to wait and see what arrives (if anything!)

Cheers,

Tim

Hello,

I believe Simon is looking at other options for the PO Box service, as it is prohibitively expensive to run these days, thanks to ever-increasing charges from Royal Mail.

Any cards that come through to us will be posted on as-normal.... I'll be chasing Simon this week for an update on the situation, as we need to find a new solution going-forward

Sorry for the delay....
