Tag Pickup: Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I show up at a tag pickup and pay for membership and get my tags all at once?

Q. Is there a schedule for tag pickups?
A. Unfortunately, no. My own schedule is not predictable enough for me to set dates and times in advance for tag pickups. Generally, they will occur on the weekends.

A. See above regarding the membership fairy and the lifeguard stand.
Q. I really want to come to your house to pick up my membership packet and to introduce my kids to the membership fairy, where do you live?
A. If I gave out my address, it would ruin the magic.
Q. I signed up for membership, but haven't paid yet. Can I still get my tags?
A. No. We require payment before issuing the tags. It's just a thing.
Q. If I send multiple emails to the membership trustee asking about tag pickup, will I get my tags any faster?
A. Unlikely. But if it makes you feel better, go for it.
