Whatever it takes

I live in Victoria B.C.Canada and have put a team together called The Splinters we filled in the application forms did the video then took them all to the post office Feb 1st I wanted to make sure that the package got to the P.O box address so I asked for the best way of sending my package they told me I should use a priority service but it would be expensive no problem! so off it went, what was supposed to be 2-3 days turned in to 5 days so I'm becoming a little concerned after 6 days I called the post office and they assured me that it would arrive soon but alas still no confirmation after another 3 calls finally someone called to tell me that because its a P.O box they won't deliver without a phone number of the recipiant but I can't get a phone number I told them too bad the package will be returned, I said well what if I send another copy regular mail they told me that it won't get there in time for the deadline, this left only one alternative get the package to Seattle and send it by U.S postal service but of course getting to Seattle is a bit of a problem with ferries and all, being on an island, So lets charter a float plane fly to Seattle take a taxi to the post office then fly home I must say that apart from the stress of getting our applications out our team has had a lot of fun just putting all this together so even if we don't get on the show its still been an adventure

I hope somebody of importance reads this (besides me of course) because after going through all that to turn in your application you damn well deserve to be chosen for the show. GEEZ

Don't you have access to Federal Express or UPS in Canada???

If not, I am so sorry for you.

Hi Rick yes we do have access to U.P.S and Fed Ex but no one will deliver to a P.O box

I have the email address for on of the producers. I can send it if you like so you can tell them of your delimma. Right me if you want it.

Or you could WRITE me...GEEZ!

(No, I'm not posting the email address...)

The form says "Deadline for sending in entries" I took that to mean must be postmarked by. It does not say entries must be received by.

Hopefully the postmark will do since the postal service is the only ones that can deliver them. On a good day I get stuff to the west coast in 2 days by first class, never been more than 4 days.
