Christmas orders

Anybody who is thinking of ordering SOTA merchandise or Awards for delivery before Christmas really needs to place them as soon as possible (and certainly no later than 18 December) if I am to post them in time. Folks in the antipodes need to do it sooner than that.

This does not affect online delivery of certificates which I can process up until a day or two before Christmas.

I may be over optimistic on the last posting dates for destinations outside the UK.
Here is a list from Royal Mail:

By then I should be up to my eyeballs in “Festive Spirit” with any luck :grinning:

There was lots of Festive Spirit on sale in my supermarket. I wasn’t sure whether to tut-tut and complain about the pervasive binge drinking culture here. Instead I stocked up Vodka reduced by 33% and thought I’d sample a Bowmore Single Malt special. Only 9 years old so a bit young but finished off in Sherry casks. Hmmm, Islay Peat and Sherry finish and only £20 a bottle. I should have bought a few!
