I ordered, and paid for, a ThrowDown calender a couple of months ago. Have not received anything. What's up? :confused:

Well, I guess at this point it's safe to say they aren't going to happen. So rather than keep this dragging out, everyone should expect refunds soon.

I'm sure our artist will be able to provide the file for everyone to download and print on their own.

Sorry for the problems, it seemed like a sure thing at one point in time, and things just fell apart, both plan A and plan B.

Done. I'm sure the files can be made available. The artist already suggested that idea a little while back as an option of last resort.

You were SO close to getting a thong!:becky: They're only $7.99 ya know...but with shipping it went over the amount. I know, I could have donated...but since you said to donate it...I figure I'll go ahead and honor that. Even though I REALLY AM tempted to just do it anyway.

Yeah, I'm doing the thong!:heh:

Sorry guys.. Chris came to me when plan A fell apart. i tried to get our printer to quote things out, (the same one doing the banners), but thats in the same time warp as the hats and aprons. If he ever comes thru, i will move forward with the same $$$. thanks.

Chris, My first thought was to donate to the site, my second thought was to donate to the site. So I stopped thinking, was smelling smoke but later found that was from the bird I just cooked.

So please donate my $10 to the site. And all is forgiven, you did good.:clap2:

I think Phil is the last person who should be apologizing. He brought up the idea to me actually. I'm sure the printer is just busy and probably has other things they feel are more important to address. Seeing as June is now over, the idea of still trying a calendar just seems too much of a stretch. Thanks for trying Phil!:clap2:

Also, thanks to everyone else who has been involved, Secret Squirrel and Santa Gnome. As others have mentioned, chit happens sometimes, and sometimes there is nothing we can do about it no matter how good of intentions there were. I still think both Santa Gnome and Secret Squirrel are wonderful people for the work they did, and what was initially planned.:thumb: It just wasn't in the cards ultimately I guess.
Donate mine to the Brethren as well. :thumb:

I will hold on to yours for now, and once all of the refunds/donations are settled then I will determine whether to donate the remaining funds, or use the remaining money for a prize or prizes (if enough is left). I actually eat a small cost for each Paypal transaction where I received money. Those who sent $10 (or other increments of 10) will get their full money refunded, or the full amount donated. I don't mind eating that cost at all, in fact I'm happy to eat it. I'm only mentioning it because it's possible there would be nothing left after all of the processing is done.:rolleyes:

Sorry it did not happen Chris.

[or use it yourself to off set your costs. Either way it helps the site and benefits the Brethren.

thanks in advance.

Throwdowns are picked by the winners as they come. So the winner of week 35 will pick the throwdown for week 37, week 36 winner will pick 38, etc. All active throwdowns are made into Sticky threads.

The throwdown is at the very top of "Q" talk. It has its own sticky all by itself. Just go to the top of this page and click on "Q", then pick BBQ Brethrens Throwdowns.

It's all there, come on in and join the fun. :becky:
