Our first day at Paddle 09 was a staggeringly, enormous success. We started selling DVDs before the premier.
If you're thinking of buying, please don't delay. Out of the entire pressing, I only have 250 copies left. And I'll sell a lot of them today here at Perth. To be sure of your copy for Christmas, buy here.
I was very cautious with the number of DVDs I had replicated. Distributors Cordee warned DVDs don't sell as well as books so they'd probably only need 200 across the year. I'd never done this before, so I didn't replcate too many. Now with distributors around the world taking boxes of 50 at a time and a regular stream of online orders, I'm down to my last 250. And that's before I send any to Cordee for UK retailers.
At this rate, I will have to do a second pressing, but I might not get any copies to UK-wide retailers until just before Christmas. To be sure of your copy, buy here.
When the time came to show the 35 minute version I had edited specially for Paddle 09, SCA CEO Stuart Smith had to organise more chairs and benches to fit everyone into the main coaching hall. He later told me that with more than 250 people at our presentation it was the best attended of the day. Which is nice.
