    I'm not sure where Brian's at with keeping the listing of folks who have or want it.

    The official TUG Banner (the only one left?) is on it's way to me from Caribbean-Lover for our upcoming trip to Ireland. We return to the USA on May 6th so I can mail it out to the "next person" for use the week of May 13th.

    I would suggest that the list start there and that it makes sense to add you on it for your August trip to Wmsburg.

    I am in receipt of the banner that C/L took to France, etc. If someone wants it for May please let me know. I return to the USA on May 6th, so I can mail it USPS (USA only please) on Monday May 7th. It should arrive in time for a Saturday May 12th departure.

    What's the date you need it by and I'll add you to this new updated list for banner #3.

    I'll try to keep it up until Brian picks it up and puts in on the first page of this thread :)

    I understand there are a few banners going around. I received it from Black Diamod and I had to pay cash on delivery for it, now I wonder if I should have sent it back to Black Diamond, it might be a personal group banner.
    Thimeshare Von I did not send it cash on delivery, you should not have paid for it.

    No worries C/L . . . I didn't have to pay anything when it arrived here.

    As for the banner itself, it is a TUG banner (belonging to TUG) and not a personal one, as I had previously had it in 2010 for our trip to Alaska.

    I believe the other banners "going around" have been lost (see Brian's #1 post). There is one personally owned banner that has been previously mentioned (Scott/Pianodinasaour) and I'm certain that this is not it.

    It looks like this banner got off track when it wasn't sent to Ran-Ran to go to Cabo in Nov 11 and on to Slip in Feb 12 for Palm Beach. (Apparently you didn't make the connection with Ran-Ran to forward it on to them after your Oct. trip.)

    In any event, it is back and we'll try to get it back on track and in circulation again.

    I commissioned two TUG Banners. I kept one for myself and donated the other to TUG for general use.

    The one you gave to TUG must be the one I have (I've referred to it as #3) . . . which is going to Ireland with me/us tomorrow.

    I'm still waiting to have Brian update the schedule.

    Post #657 has the update on Banner #3 which should be posted on the original post with the banners' scheduling.

    I am leaving today with it, and will be back on May 6th so it will be available for mailing on Monday May 7th to someone for use the following week. (I'd prefer to ship within the USA, however.)

    Thanks!

    I can take it with us to Harbor Ridge starting June 6; I don't think it's ever been there. We're actually using our week there for the first time since 1997! I would need it by about June 1 or 2 and will be back mid-June to mail it along.

    so to confirm, all we have left is banner 3? lost the 2nd one now too?

    I did locate a new blank banner (was sitting at the design guys shop when I went over there last week)...so we can throw in another one once this one gets full!

    Actually the banner I have is not the original listed on post #1 as banner 1. (See my post #657 which as a complete list of everyone who's signed it, dating back to March 2010.)

    Brian, also note that AmyCurl is requesting it for June 1st, not May 1st.

    In the absence of anyone else wanting it before then, I will mail it on to her in time for their upcoming June trip. (Amy please send me a private message with your USPS mailing address.)

    Fine by me Winger . . . I have had the banners several times, so I don't think that it matters.

    Make contact with AmyCurl to set up mailing the banner to you when she returns from her early June trip.

    TUG Banner sent across the continent!

    I mailed the banner to Winger c/o NCV today. I will wait until my tech support arrives on Monday to try and post a picture.

    It was cool to read all of the notes and different places where the banner has been.
