Default USCF makes no plans to regain mail-order business

According to a news story that appeared Oct. 26 in the Crossville (Tenn.)
Chronicle, it appears that the USCF has written off the idea of regaining its
book and equipment business that it outsourced this past year.
According to the story, "The city of Crossville agreed to donate 3 acres of
land to the USCF in 2003 for the construction of the USCF offices and
warehouse." But, as the story continues, "The warehouse will not be necessary
as the USCF has outsourced its mail order business."
Does this mean that the federation has no plans of reinstating an in-house book
and equipment business and will be satisfied with continuing to outsource this
activity that once upon a time was very profitable to the USCF?
By the way, the land that the USCF has received is located between Middle
Tennessee Natural Gas and Volunteer Energy, in the vicinity of the Crossville
post office. I assume that a thorough environmental impact study of the land
was done by city, county and state officials before it was deeded over to the
USCF.
In the meantime, the federation will be setting up shop in the old First
Baptist Church building on First Street in Crossville, which will be
"free-rent" interim HQ until the USCF building is completed. As far as I know,
no one from the USCF Executive Board has posted how long the construction
schedule will be - sans warehouse.

Don't worry about a thang, George. If the Gas Company blows up, the
Crossville Fire Department will get thar just as fast as they can get old
Nellie hitched up to the fire wagon, good old number 99.

Mike,

Do you walk to work or carry your lunch?

George, would you rather see the USCF build a warehouse it doesn't
currently need or build offices that could have warehouse space
added on at a later date?

Hahaha.

Three acres. 200 x 200 feet x 3 = 120,000. Divide by 20 employees and you
get 6,000 square feet per employee.

Wow.

We are Devo.

George,
No environmental impact study is needed to locate between offices.
Middle Tennessee Natural Gas is the provider of natural gas for
Crossville and Volunteer Energy is the electric cooperative that
delivers electricity to the area. Three acres in Crossville costs
about 9000 dollars. Land is cheap down here. Also, should they decide
to get back into the book business; Ingram Books is located 90 miles
away. They are the largest distributor of school text books in the
world. It would be quite simple to work out a cooperative arrangement
with them.
This move is going to be great for the game and the USCF.
