Group buy at The Wet Spot

RAS sponsors several mail orders during the year for members, covering the cost of shipping/tax. Due to their extensive selection, the Wet Spot in Portland, Oregon, has proven to be one of the more popular group buys.  We typically place a order with them twice a year.

The first Wet Spot order of 2018 takes place in April (i.e., now), with pickup at the regular May meeting at the Vet School on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

Important deadlines:

  • Sunday, April 22: Initial order to sponsor (Chris Smith)
  • Sunday, April 29: Payment received by sponsor.
  • Thursday, May 3: pickup order at regular RAS meeting
