Wow, your timing is good, or you are psychic!  ;D  We were discussing this in PMs just last night, and Fred says 'good to go' again.  (I'm involved because the announcement will be in the newsletter.)  Look for the gift certs in the store around the start of December or a little earlier.

I'm just that good! **)   Will these be priced the same as signing up or will they be discounted? 

$50, and Lawrence just PM'ed that the release date will be 11/22.

Is there a reason why we don't offer gift certificates in the store year round?  I'm talking about gift certificates that are the same price as if signing up through eventbrite.  Gift giving is year round, not just at Christmas.

Hmmm, interesting idea.  Let me run that up the flag pole...

Huh?  We haven't been running them year around?   ???

I had someone ask if we had gift certificates at the expo this past weekend. They give the gift of experiences for Christmas gifts and she thought this was ideal this year.

I have a question:  Will there be gift certificates priced for the under-18 category so certificates can be purchased for the whole family?  What will the cost be?

Thanks,
Kim

Remind me to update the website homepage with a banner and info.

Hmm - how about under 18?

Man - they would be good for Birthdays and such.

Official announcement will be on Tuesday, they should be available from the store on or about the 22nd.

Right now there's no plan for an under-18 certificate.  If we gave about the same %age discount, they'd go for about $17, and that's not enough to make up for the shipping etc.  Maybe we can consider something more substantial for 2015...

Thanks for bringing this up. We will be keeping them in the store year round for 2015, though at the 'regular' shoot price after January 1st.

Also looking into getting a gift cert packed in with each regular shoot box, so SBs have something tangible to pass out when they want to 'comp' a shooter, or to have something to use for raffles, silent auctions, etc.  Stay tuned on that.

Where is the link to the gift certificates now?  I don't see them in the store.

Thanks

I believe they ended purchases Dec. 31 at the Store.

Yes, but from the above thread:

Thanks for bringing this up. We will be keeping them in the store year round for 2015, though at the 'regular' shoot price after January 1st.

Therefore, I would expect that they would still be in the store?
