Title: versatility medals
Post by: belindak36 on May 07, 2014, 04:57:42 AM
Have the versatility medals that were earned in Nov 2013 been mailed out yet?  Just looking for an update on the status.  My dogs name is Rusti and her number is 10-02261.

I try to post as we send them.  We are about to send Alabama and Alaska.  We have processed California, Oregon, Montana, Arizona and we just finished packaging Washington.  So Alabama, Alaska and Washington will go out now and then we will start Colorado, Nevada, Maryland and Virginia.

You can print the certificate for the medals off the NADAC web site until the physical medal arrives.

You should let me bring back Virginia at least....and maybe Maryland.  Hopefully someone from MD will come to our EGC trial and we can send back or I can meet someone on my way to DE...or maybe see someone there.  It would save some postage and that will only be a month or so.

So once you have sent out medals for one geographic area, and I, for example, earn another award, you will be going through the rest of the mailings before coming back to my area?   Just trying to figure out the timing in general.

Thanks for all of your efforts.

Hi Sharon,
If the Minnesota medals are ready in July, I can take them back from Red Lodge.  If they're not ready, that's OK too.

I'm in Oklahoma so I guess I have a bit to wait.  That is fine, just trying to figure out where I was in the process of getting it.

If you want to send a mass group of NJ and lower NY state medals to me, I'll do my best to get them all delivered.

So if South Dakota is getting medals, what happened to the Colorado batch?

I am not sure of the reasoning for South Dakota versus Colorado, but we will be processing all medals and everyone will get theirs!

Maybe she thought you were doing them in alphabetical order   :)

Arlene just finished up another 500 today so all of the above were also processed to be mailed on Monday.  Most of New Hampshire, Nebraska, Iowa and North Dakota were completed also.

LeeAnne, feel free to bring back mine and I can get them at the EGC trial as long as it isn't too much trouble for Sharon to gather them from the batch.  That will save some postage :)

I was just going by the previous posts listing the various states that had already been done, and the next batches coming up...  South Dakota wasn't listed in any of them so far, but Colorado had been listed in a batch so it sort of seemed logical that CO would be sent out before SD?

I know you guys are working hard at getting them sent !!

Glenn is a HE not a she.  Look at the beard. 

We have been getting the runaround for 2 years.  We were told we would get ours for sure in June 1 year ago.  Then we were told they were all at Champs.  Then there was the priority list of people who wanted them versus those that did not care.  We were told associates would get them--- we are both associates.  We offered to pay for the award ourselves and no reply to email.  Th4en there was another statement that did not come to pass.T hen Sharon listed the states processed and what was next.  South Dakota was not in that list. Is Colorado in the batch going out on Monday or was it skipped over?  Is it all of Colorado?  Or just some special people?

It helps to have a list by some order and not to vary from that.  Anything else gives a very bad impression and fosters jealousy or the feeling one is not in the in & deserving crowd.

We do everything we can and sometimes my dream to fulfill everyone's awards listing can't happen.  Not from a lack of desire on my part.  I will do all that I can.

Colorado has been processed.  We worked this weekend and made sure that Colorado medals were completed.  Half mailed today and the other half will go tomorrow.

I won't make any more projected dates.  I will do everything I can and people can just be surprised when their awards arrive or be upset when they aren't.  That is out of my control.

I hope that everyone is thoroughly enjoying every run with their dog and if they fulfill the requirements for an award, be sore to go to the NADAC web site and print out your beautiful Awards Certificate and know that your medals will also be coming as soon as possible.

Hi, group.
   As many may note, I am not going to let any posts go through that criticize or show negativity towards anyone who is upset about not getting awards yet.  Also, anyone can make an honest mistake by saying she instead of he.  No one meant any insult, accidents do happen.

   People can be upset and I totally understand their position.  Many, many people asked to be put on a priority list and I wrongfully responded yes, not realizing that many were requesting 2014 medals, not 2013 and before. 

    It is okay for people to be disappointed.  We will continue to get them done as soon as possible.  My dream for 2014 was that all 2013 and before medals would be gone by the end of March, but that wasn't possible.  So we will continue to do what we can.

   I am very happy and excited that people can print out their beautiful Awards Certificates to commemorate their awesome achievements.  I understand that there will be many that want the physical Medal to display along with their certificates.  I also know that there will be some that quit NADAC because of a lack of receiving an award.  And we will continue to process and mail awards.  We make no deadlines or any promises.

    At some point I will post that we are fully completed with all prior-2014 awards and then people can email me if they haven't received theirs.

    I hope that everyone has printed out their beautiful Awards Certificates!  They are awesome and we worked hard to make those available to people!

Congratulations to all!!

Question- I went to the special awards page and put in Roxanne's # (06-12214). Her award shows up but it is blank.  It should be for 1000 lifetime points but the certificate does not say that it just says "as having earned the following                 ". There is nothing after the word following.  Am I doing something wrong?

It showed up and printed fine on my computer and printer.  I input the number and clicked "select" on the screen and then clicked "print/download". 

If it isn't working on your computer, then please email the webmaster and let her know.  She will want to know what operating system you are using.  Since this is a newer option in the past month, they could be an issue with certain operating systems.

For those saying they will pay for their awards- the "older" style NADAC awards can be ordered (and paid for) by contacting Becky at Nadacbecky@aol.com and telling her what awards you would like. She will give you a quote for the price + shipping.

Home from working in a dirty old basement and there in the mail are Teddy's medals.  How wonderful to have a physical reminder of all the fun we have together.  NADAC rocks!

Waiting patiently for Rami's first BIG medal earned Nov 2013.  I know some organizations aren't even sending out printed awards so anything is better than nothing!!

Looking to see if we are on the list... Katy (10-08100) earned her Novice Versatility in February 2013 and Open Versatility and 1,000 point in 2014.  Is our 2013 on the list?  We're no longer in California.. now New Jersey and we did send in an address update to Chris.

Thanks so much.  And thanks for the special certificates!!

Yes, you are on the list.  If the award shows in your points history, then we have it on our list also!

Arlene did several hundred more yesterday, but I don't know which ones were finished.

I will see if Arlene got it done last night!
