Hey Jim, way back when this first started there was a day between greg’s departure and my arrival so he left it at the storage room at the hotel (where they store your suitcases if you have checked out but haven’t left, or checked in but room not yet ready - i guess technically that’s the bell desk?) and he emailed me a picture of the claim tag and used my last name. I had no issues retrieving with that. Both he and I tipped. I seem to recall that there was a bigger gap in dates a few weeks later but this storage method also worked then although could have just been luck. Maybe u can see what last name to leave it under for marmite and try this method?Need direction re: Bundles and chairs. Bundle 1 is currently with me (JimT) and Bundle 2 with Ryes. I leave on Monday Nov 28 and I don't see any reservations until "marmite" on Friday, Dec. 2. Personally, I think the bundles should be separated. I think someone mentioned storage available. Happy to help. Just need a little more info.
Yah i am going to get rid of the flippers, beach mat and both of the tiny chairs in bundle 2 and just have bundle 2 become two chairs and the Tommy bahama umbrellaHere is my opinion on the bundles: I think we should *not* include the flippers and beach mat and one broken child chair in Bundle 2. Those can be left where tourists leave their beach stuff for others to pick up, so ask the bell desk if there is a place for this. If Bundle 2 has a fairly full list of recipients for the foreseeable future, then hopefully Bundle 2 can survive on its own. If there are small gaps, perhaps the Bundle 1 recipients can claim Bundle 2 and store it in their villas to keep it alive, and leave it at the bell desk if their stay overlaps with Bundle 2 folks. Bundle 2 should be fairly manageable without the extra items.
The night before I left I met up with Jim and gave him bundle 2 to join with his bundle 1, as there were no takers for it, so u should have both bundle 1 and bundle 2 (each bundle being 2 chairs and an umbrella).I'm not sure why but I don't seem to see a link to the calendar for bundle 1. There is a link to bundle two, but that calendar seems empty. Does anyone know who the next person on the list is for Bundle 1? I have it until Friday, December 9th. Thanks
No, I only have 2 chairs and 2 umbrellas. Thanks for the link.The night before I left I met up with Jim and gave him bundle 2 to join with his bundle 1, as there were no takers for it, so u should have both bundle 1 and bundle 2 (each bundle being 2 chairs and an umbrella).
Also here is the link for the bundle 1 calendar, as I see what u mean, calendar 1 somehow got replaced by calendar 2 in the original post: https://firstname.lastname@example.org&ctz=America/Los_Angeles
The bundle was split somewhere along the way because it was becoming too big?Not sure what happened. I left 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas at WOKRN (6 items noted on claim check). Seems marmite only received 2 chairs 2 umbrellas. Happy to work with anyone to investigate / resolve / help. Let me know. Feel bad, given all the great work done by others over the last year to keep this going.
Sorry @Reyes, I hadn't been following this thread for all the conversation on the bundles, until now. When I picked up the bundle on Friday I wasn't expecting 6 pieces, so when they came out with two chairs and two umbrellas I just took them and didn't think much of it. The last time I had the bundle it was completely different, in a black bag had the two Tommy Bahama adult chairs, some kids chairs and and a boogie board with a TB Umbrella. So honestly, this thing has just kind of been morphing and I didn't know it was missing anything.The night before I left I met up with Jim and gave him bundle 2 to join with his bundle 1, as there were no takers for it, so u should have both bundle 1 and bundle 2 (each bundle being 2 chairs and an umbrella).
Okay, that's good. So marmite is only missing two smaller blue chairs. Were they in the carrying bag?There were 2 Tommy Bahama chairs (multi-colored) and 2 smaller blue chairs plus the 2 umbrellas.
No, the blue chair were "loose". Don't think I received the carrying bag.Okay, that's good. So marmite is only missing two smaller blue chairs. Were they in the carrying bag?
There are two calendars now, are you looking at the right one?Why was I removed from the calendar?
Hi sorry had stopped subscribing to the thread so just seeing this now. As per the input and discussions in this thread from November, bundle 2 was made smaller into 2 chairs and an umbrella. The rest of what formerly comprised of bundle 2 remained in the carrying bag which was left on the balcony of the room. So bundle 2 is 2 chairs and 1 umbrella.Chiming in here after being away for a few days to say that when I picked up the large bundle of six chairs and two umbrellas on 11/6, the bell desk person at North had to go look three times to bring all the items out on the one claim check. I split the bundle into two bundles before I left, and on 11/18, I gave @Ryes the four short chairs in the large bag and the blue/white Tommy Bahamas umbrella (bundle 2). Later that day, I gave @JimT the two Tommy Bahamas chairs and the multi-colored Tommy Bahamas umbrella (bundle 1). @JimT left both bundles with the bell desk, so it sounds like the blue bag with the four chairs (one of which is broken and I thought we decided to leave those two out of bundle 2 anyway) is probably still at the bell desk and they just have to look for it. If you happen to get it, just recycle/trash the two small chairs, of which one is broken, and keep the two other small chairs. If they aren't there, then we just have one bundle with two Tommy Bahamas chairs and two umbrellas.
