Keep looking at the screen, your eye lids are starting to get heavy, you are feeling sleepy, keep looking at the screen.

Hey,
Today's the day they go to the flying field. Every Wednesday, so their site says.

They probably left without putting the sale on the computer !!

This is like the rock band behind the curtains waiting for the crowd to get fevered enough. I just know Hobby Lobby is monitoring this thread thinking, "hold for just a little longer....they're not begging yet!"

It's kind of confusing, the flying field photo page says Wednesday, but the latest individual date pages say "any Thursday". I've visited with Jason and the HL gang a couple of times back in 2004. Lots of neat planes and great pilots.

If they think that this little "stunt" is gonna send consumers into a "spending frenzy" over their as-of-lately silly items like BLINKING LED's and such, think again.

Your customers on this forum aren't stupid HL. A prominent retail company such as yourself with silly tactics can be seen right thru, plain as day looking into a glass house.

No doubt this is no mistake on HL's part. It's intentional...

Oh well, I picked up the old Crash sale Nippy Outrunner yesterday for $19.90 since they had some leftovers, I guess I will consider that my "Crash" purchase for this week.

Chris,
Did you forget your happy pill today ?
Or did you get caught watching videos Brian sent you ?

Ummmm.......maybe we ought to exhibit a little patience (difficult in this time of instant gratification) and hear from Jason on what's up.

Hey Guys,
With CRASH happening on Wednesdays, our day to go to the flying field was changed to Thursdays.

We will not be having a CRASH sale this week. We had some email issues yesterday, and our Sales Manager, who use to over see the CRASH sales is no longer with HL. He is off for another adventure, and we wish him well. Check back next week. We should be fully up and running by then.
