09:58 – Kit orders have started to ramp up a bit earlier than usual for July. Of course, two of those were small bulk orders, one for four kits going to a guy who’s taking them to Africa to teach science classes there, and a second for six kits going to a state university. Multiple-unit orders are nice but unpredictable. We could get no more multiple-unit orders at all this month, or we could get several, each for 20, 30, 40, or more kits. As nice as those are in terms of unit sales and revenues, they play hob with finished-goods inventory.
Barbara is starting to get involved volunteering with local non-profits. She has meetings today, tomorrow, and Saturday with a charity golf tournament, the library, and Alleghany Cares, which is our local equivalent to Good Will. Between all those, we’ll be working on kits.
