While this is a cool product and great idea for a fundraiser, it’s against the rules to sell these in the competition area. From the 2005 Champtionship site info, section 31.5:
31.5 Site Restrictions
Please read the following restrictions and adhere to them in order to promote an orderly, safe, pleasant, and exciting competition. As a group, we all should honor agreements with the venue and help promote the spirit of good partnership.
Please: Do not sell any products. This includes food, hats, shirts, or any promotional products.*
I think even by taking orders now, the exchange of money for product at the event constitutes the sale itself, and would most likely not be allowed.
These earrings are so awesome looking. I ordered two pairs; one for my mom and one for me. This is great! =) I’ve been wanting tetra earrings. I’ll forward this to Miss Jenny. She’ll be thrilled…considering she asked me a couple months ago if I knew anyone that could make these kinds of earrings.
i ordered a pair, just because they’re adorable and i want some.
and technically, you’re not SELLING them at the venue, since technically, you sold them online with credit by ordering one, and now you’re just exchanging goods for currency for a transaction that was promised long beforehand.
but thats just looking at it from an Economist’s point of view. (i’d say “from a Lawyer’s point of view”, but lawyers seem to be looked down on by FIRSTers.)
if worse comes to worse, i’m sure the parking lot works… or you could even consider doing transactions at the hotels teams are staying at. just a few ideas.
