    ...to change the show date on my catalog show to the 5th!

    DH has a co-worker who wanted to order the 7-piece Executive set for her daughter, direct shipped, and didn't want to do a show even after I explained the difference in cost. He forgot to tell me before Christmas, but she wasn't too worried, so I got a couple of more orders to make it a $500 show, and was going to wait until the first, so it'd count for this month, and I'd get extra FPV.

    Then my computer crashed. It took me a bit to get things sorted out, so I decided I'll wait until Tuesday to submit, so I'll get triple points.

    I just now realized I forgot to change the show date, and I only get triple points if it's held and submitted 5-10! :cry::cry::cry:

    Live and learn, I guess...

    That stinks.

    I do want to point out that it's not a good idea to mention changing show dates on this forum. The rules for the Irresistible Destinations specifically mention (page 3):
    (emphasis mine)
    The rules are posted on CC on the Irresistible Destinations page.

    We do know that HO has people who check in here from time to time.

    It may not have been a cooking show, but indicating that you were going to purposely change the date to one other than the one on which you closed it is akin to changing a cooking show date.

    Ann, I appreciate your reminder. I know your concern is for everyone to conduct their business ethically, which is important to me as well.

    If I remember correctly Noora's "show" was an individual order that the customer gave her permission to (1) turn into a catalog show and (2) do for either December or January.

    Yeah, I realized after I logged off earlier that I should have indicated that it was meant as a general reminder not to discuss changing show dates. Not a specific accusation toward Noora.

    Sorry about that.

    But if there was an original date the show was supposed to close and it was closed earlier, it would be OK.
