    Question UPS Question

    I was asked by another MOA member the other day if I had noticed a UPS shipping station on the Rally grounds in West Bend last year.

    I did not, but then again, I wasn't specifically looking for it.

    Will there be one in Gillette for this gentleman?

    There was a shipping center in West Bend last year and I'm sure there will be one this year as well.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    There is one every year, you can count on one being there this year. Sometimes there has been confusion about whether they will be there Sunday morning as everyone is packing and leaving, so ship prior to then!

    Thanks for the replies.

    Is the 'Shipping Center' on the Rally grounds proper, or does one have to venture into Gillette?

    Typical hours of operation?

    Any more questions than this, and I'll tell him to start posting on the Forum himself!

    It was on the grounds last year and I would guess it will be on the grounds again this year. A nice service for those who need to send stuff home.

    The trick is to find a private entrepreneur (such as a UPS Store) who will consider becoming a vendor at our event for a couple of days. Sometimes this is a new concept for these store owners and is not always a welcome opportunity.

    If DHL or Fed Ex (or the USPS) had independent local shipping stores, then you can bet that the MOA would also solicit them - - - in a heartbeat. (As in "Kinkos" for Fed Ex)

    Rally Chairs have no loyalty to any shipping purveyor... the goal is to locate *ANY* shipping vendor to do the job for us.

    Just wondering if the MOA was locked into UPS or DHL to Fed X would be an option.
    Sue is correct. We'll go with whoever gets the job done!!! We're giving UPS/Office Depot, (whoever is willing to commit) until early next week, and then will try other sources.

    Not exactly. I read the article about UPS, referencing shipping items TO the Rally.

    But what about shipping stuff back home?

    Just a word of advice for those planning to get things shipped in Wyoming. You have to think of how's it actually going to get there. Some places have to be routed through Bigger cities like Denver before they even get to Wyoming. So if you've got a package that you want on a particular day, second day air won't matter cause it can't make the drive in 2 days. Also, most parts of our fine state have more UPS employees to deliver your packages. Just some things to think about
