    Living overseas, year after year my m'ship pack would arrive as late as April. Every single time it was 'a problem with the supplier'. It would arrives months after getting the email saying that it has been posted.

    Now I get my pack sent to a super awesome Manly member in Australia and she posts it on to me. I won't mention her name as I don't want to embarrass happilymanly.

    It was just faster to get the pack sent to an Aussie address, then onto Canada. I don't know why but I my suspicions are the cheap af supplier is just not that good at doing what they claim.

    Obviously I'd like not to keep imposing on said anonymous happilymanly's kindness so I hope the supplier gets their act together.

    On the plus side... my pack did arrive in Aust.

      These damn pins have really become a sore point.
      Great idea, poorly executed, from the beginning.

        I assume you know this, but just for the cheap seats...

        I believe our packs are sent straight to us from the supplier overseas. I can't remember where it's from...China, Malaysia...

        The annoying thing is, it's not as if this company doesn't know the orders are coming in, but year after year....sigh.

        I'd change suppliers if I was Manly.

        It reminds me of a past life where I had to deal with banks and every year they'd whine about being busy because of Christmas.... so I reminded them that Christmas happens the same time each year so it shouldn't come as a shock nor a surprise. Sort yourselves out!

          Same here. No pin.
          Has anyone else noticed that the members cap doesn't have a mention of Manly Warringah or the Sea Eagles? I think it is strange.

              Isn't it due to the NRL owning all logos therefore they get a cut of all merchandise that is branded :rolleyes:

              I hate the budgie cartoon, they need to make it look more like a streamlined raptor :wait:

                You wouldn't believe when I got home from my work yesterday that my wife said " doesn't look like your membership will be here for xmas " . As soon as she finished saying that the general freight express dude came walking up my road with it in hand . I thought it was my mate Steve who works for them so I yelled No Saints pussys aloud on my turf , anyway the bloke had a laugh and said don't blame you .

                  It actually came in a 10cm 'display' but the pin is tiny.

                  Beaver sent it to me, not Scotty :giggle:

                  Yeah, I know about the packaging. My 2 year White & 5 year Maroon Pins both came in and are still in their original packaging, the same that you have displayed with your 10 year Silver Pin.

                    i got my pack delivered monday & opened it yesterday(christmas present). due to working a lot of saturdays i chose the non ticketed pack for next year & the cooler bag that comes with it aint too shabby!
                    don't mind the cap either although i can understand others comments about the style of hat & skin cancer.

                      I think the club were seeking a completely different style of hat in compared to previous seasons thus went for a baseball style cap.

                      Accepted. But why is there no acknowledgement that this cap represents the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles?
                      The angry bird on the crest is a copy of the Philadelphia Eagles insignia.
                      I don't think I've seen a Members Cap without some visual statement that it is from the MW Sea Eagles.
                      Was this a conscious decision or an oversight?

                      The only reference that I can see is on the tag sewn onto the inside of the cap (upside-down) with this logo on a maroon background:

                      Yes, which you tuck inside the cap and it is not visible.
                      I don't want to make a big deal of the issue but surely if you are trying to expand a brand you put a name on each piece of merchandise. There are sponsors names on the cap.
                      The shirt and shorts I received for Christmas had a lot of MW branding on them.

                        Could you please pass on to the membership people that they would save costs by placing multiple memberships for the one address into the one package

                        Currently we have 5 season tickets in 3 names and receive 3 packages each year with the hats etc which I assume attracts 3 delivery costs?

                        There should be an option to have all items for the same address put into one package and therefore one delivery cost?

                            Agree, I have been a member since 2003 & have not ever received one. I’m not bothered by that because my team is all I need, but it was a good idea & has been poorly executed.
