    The plan was to get the strobes sent out in 2 batches. 1 to myself in Australia and 1 to Bird in the USA and we'd forward the strobes on from there. The Australian takeup of the strobes was quite high and the wire on the 50cm spacing strobes ended up making the strings quite heavy (about 0.66kg, 1.5 pound). The US shipment isn't huge or heavy but the Australian 1 is (70kg). Because the shipment is quite heavy and expensive it would work out better for most involved (especially me) if the larger orderers or anyone who is planning on ordering from Benbrown could get their strobes sent direct to them. Local shipping within Australia could easily cost another $20 or more for a few of the larger deliveries.
    Because of the large quantity and weight of strobes I don't want the parcel/s to be hit with 10% GST especially as all the orders were placed and paid for separately. On top of that there is typically a 3 or 4 day delay if that occurs.
    Below is a pdf with the quantities and rough weights for each persons deliveries. This doesn't take into account the weight of any packaging.

    So does this mean that the US orders are still going to bird? Or are we doing separate shipping also?

    Sorry Alan I'm a little unclear on what's happening.
    Are you saying we need to arrange shipment on a person-by-person basis directly with Ben due to the excessive weight?

    The US shipment is okay to send out as it's not too huge. A number of Aussies are getting them sent direct from Ben which is getting the weight and value of the parcel down. Hopefully by Monday everything will be sorted and shipped.

    It will be a typo on my part. I was mainly trying to correlate the country info and work out the weights of the Aussie part of the things.

    I thought that was the case but wanted to check before everything shipped.. Thanks for putting this together and making my display *flashier* (I doubt this is an actual word)
