if at all possible id go as early into the sale as ya can...Its a madhouse, but you will most likely get your product.
If you wait say 2 days into the sale you are most likely going to get a raincheck:banghead:
Im not her to bash them since they have and are very good to me but some of the higher ups need to allow more product through when people like myself and the managers predict alot more sales of product than what they send to our store for us to sell...it happens all the time, we make predictions and they always lowball our estimates and in the end our store gets burned and we get lots of pissed off folks. Some things need to get worked out in the system for sure.
Good luck, tommorrow is the last day of the St.charles fishing classic, and ive put in around 110 hours in the past 2 weeks. IM soooo glad our classic is coming to an end, but it is nice to rub elbows with the company reps and get free stuff from em!
