To tie it all up here's the other thread:

If anyone wants to express an interest in private I'd be grateful (if possible) for a proper EMAIL rather than a forum "private message".  To see if any given person here has provided an email address here click on their forum name.  Mine is David_Laver@Hotmail.com

I just heard back with something definite from the publisher:

Our UK distributor has already been in contact with Peter Stokes and Chris Hopkins and let them know about the offer which is the following . . . We are offering a club discount of 30% discount off the retail price of the book (65.00) so your cost in the UK would be 45.50 per copy plus whatever the cost of shipping will be. The minimum order quantity is 20 copies shipping to one address (we cannot drop ship to individuals and offer the discount). Payment terms would be net 30 days.

One thought is to distribute via the committee meeting and pub meets.  Any thoughts or ideas here?   I also intend to contact Peter Stokes and Chris Hopkins to work out "the offer" before putting something in Viva.

Pretty good discount that! makes it an even better buy.

Copies would have to be paid for in advance, it's good idea to distribute via the Committee,  local meets  then can arrange for 1 Member to pick up from nearest Committee member to distribute at next meet, members who don't normally attend the local meet would need to attend to pick up their copy, or make other arrangements to collect from local member holding the collected copies.
I think Tim is our nearest Committee member for our Herts and Beds Meet, Tim attends the Essex meeting as do a couple of of our members, so that shouldn't prove to be a problem for us.
No doubt other local meets could arrange something similar.

Hi David

Yes, the forum admins received a mail this morning, just not had time to post it up today. As you say open to suggestions as to who to coordinate and where to have them sent. As to sending out maybe whoever was involved with the shipping of 'the Book' may be able to offer advice on keeping the cost down?

Hi David/Chris
                   45 seems a bargain. Please add me to the list,          Ben Courage

I'm still happy to coordinate this.  The "what's in it for me" is an excuse to drop in on some pub meets, perhaps also an excuse to visit Gaydon.

Amazon list it at 65 with free delivery so we've got to be careful not to wipe that discount out in postage and packing.  Something else to watch for is that the implication is that we'd need to add the initial shipping charge to the one address.  I'll check if that's for a box from the US or the UK distributer, and if its the UK if someone could collect in person.

Of course it would be cheaper to use the post than all of us driving to and fro pub meets. I'm assuming here that I'm not alone in needing such an excuse, both for pub meets (or race meetings or shows) or to drop in on a committee meeting.  Let the book distribution be a catalyst.

David, please add me to the list you are compiling.

You are absolutely right that post is probably the cheapest way to distribute the book, but where is the fun in that??? We are all in this for fun and there is such added value in attending an area meeting or, as you suggest a Committee meeting. Or, a meeting could be set up just for the book, a bit like the Hay Festival, but smaller, more informal and somewhat more focussed!!!!! More like a group of blokes meeting at a pub to chat about a book. So, apart from the book bit, not really like the Hay Festival at all!!!!

                              Andy

Anyway, please count me in !!!!

Would they offer a tiered discount if say, 30, 40 etc ordered or even throw in free postage instead, would take a lot of grief out of getting them A to B to C and maybe even D!

Hi David

Just to clarify, Chris said that the price was 30% discount off the list price and free delivery to a single address for the 20+ books, so the only additional shipping cost is what it costs us to distribute.

David,

please count me in also for your book order. I am in London so I am sure we can arrange a convenient handover.

+1 copy here please.

I pre-ordered on Amazon a while ago but, strangely, their site doesn't seem to have any record of the order.

Anyone here got access to an Aurelia email list?  Who is it that organises the annual lunch?

Ade. He took orders for the book, but I have heard nothing since.
