We will need to get enough guys together to make it worth buying. The local companies are not going to be allowing multiple purchases. They normally don't sell any bead. They bring it in and run it out the door as manufactured foam product. We need to see how many guys are interested, get an order in, and then do a single pick up. The minimum order is $300 for 100 lbs. With any quantity over that minimum allowed for the order. If we have three guys that need 100 lbs, then other folks could order 25, 50, 75 lbs each and we can seperate it out at the get together.
Those who want to order would need to front the money to one person shortly before the pick up so the bead is all paid for up front. The trick will be the Hazmat Hauling. If you are going to pick it up and drive a few miles they won't care. If you have a long run they will refuse to let you make a pick up without the proper licensing to haul hazmat. Tealer is a great guy and runs all over the place in Washington. He may be willing to hook us up with a pick up of the bead on one of his through that area. We would of course want to cut him some cash to help with fuel and time.
One way or another we can get at least one and likely two orders in a year for bead. It would be best if we keep the contact people minimized to one or two of us. If they get inundated with calls and requests that supply line will close.
I am going to start a thread about a possible get together and see if we can get enough interest going to get this off the ground, set a date, and find a place where we can get together. I know Bknilivr was talking about making foamers and will probably be all over this idea. I will text him on the idea, he also has a huge back yard where we could possible pitch tents and camp out while casting a ton of bodies.
