I just dropped off 87 packages, bubble mailers, boxes, etc at the Tulsa OK post office.
Keep in mind that USPS can often take up to 24 hours to update tracking statuses. There are a few reasons why your package status may not be updated right away:
I have two or three prizes with addresses that were rejected and I'll reach out to those QRP'ers ASAP for updated information.
I also need to get the DX Engineering gift certificates in the mail - they sent us physical certificates, so I'll forward those via USPS.
This has been a learning adventure...
By the way - it took me an extra week to get the mailing done as I could not order mailing labels and #0 bubble envelopes from Office Depot or Staples for same day pick up. So I figured, ok, Amazon prime says they deliver next day, and they were considerably less expensive. IT TOOK AMAZON 4 DAYS TO DELIVIVER!!!! Ugh.
So - the first time I had the chance to work on this was this weekend.
I really am sorry it's taking so long.
I know you guys all know what problems the pandemic has foisted upon us, but I didn't see this on coming.
(Really, no labels and #0 bubble envelopes at Office Depot/Staples? Really?)
Y'all enjoy your prizes !
