We’ve had an exciting month so far, and unfortunately not all of it has been a good excitement.
The bottom line is that there will be a delay in orders for the next couple of months because of three different events.
First, we have had problems accessing our storage warehouse for the past week. The warehouse is nestled behind a strip mall, and one of the other tenants had a fire. We had no damage, but the city declared that the entire complex had significant electrical and structural deficiencies and put large “Do Not Occupy” signs on all of the businesses. We have been able to access the warehouse a couple of times since then and retrieve inventory, but this is slowing our ability to get some orders processed. At this time, we are not sure when we will regain easy access.
At the end of April, we will be exhibiting at RCX (an RC expo) in Long Beach, CA. We will be busy for a few days before the show as we prepare our booth.
Our final piece of news is that Strike Models is relocating to the Seattle area during May and June (we’re still finalizing the timing). Keri has accepted a full time job in downtown Seattle, and we are looking forward to becoming regular participants at the Northwest Naval Combat battles. This will involve some slow times for some orders as we relocate our inventory and equipment, and in some cases find new sources for some of our machine work. We will add a new blog post and a notice to our home page when we have more details, as well as let you know when you order if things might be delayed.
Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you at a battle this summer!
Stephen and Keri Morgret
