    I had thought about something like that. Maybe everyone puts in $10 each and then the money is split amongst whomever is left at the end. That way it makes it a bit more competitive. But then it's a bit like gambling so not sure how the site would feel about it. It also gives people more of a reason to lie. We are going based off the honor system and there's no real way to enforce or verify anything.

    It's not really gambling since there's no element of chance. It's purely a contest of resolve.

    Have you tried to put an order through Leffot? Since they do so many one-offs with Alden I'm sure they'll be able to get a glimpse of whats coming.

    If leffot ever did an exotic shell alden again, it probably would sell out immediately. They recently opened preorders for a #8 tanker boot for $800 and it still sold out within 2 hours

    Yup. Pretty much what @NYCToon reports. I'm fairly sure I have the bases covered as far as where to look, it's now just a matter of keeping my eyes peeled and jumping when the opportunity presents itself (or having one of the places where I'm on a waiting list give me a call).

    Has it been three days already? Man, I think being in med school might be my friend on this challenge, I don't even know what day it is most of the time.
