We are still waiting the merchandising for Madrid, Valencia and Cadiz events, all united in an only WM-ES shipment to Santiago de Compostela. We will organize some events in may, so the gifts will be welcomed.

Best regards,

Shipping finally arrived here in Hong Kong this morning
actually FedEx service receive rather good reputation here

my personal thought on this,
if fellows are more willing to look into our e-mails
such delay, at least in our case in HK, shall not happen
(and thx for all staff involved to fix it, particularly Jay und Erik)

The Kyoto party ended successfully. As well speech and beer, not free
so paid because of lack of grant, cool T-shirts and lovely batches,
welcoming from Wikimedians in many places including user:Wing aka Ting
Chen WMF Board of Trustees Chair, all seemed to make the audience
happy. That made us at organizing team too, of course. Thanks all
those who have collaborated with us and have tried at least!
</OT in this thread>

Just for the record, I'd like to make it clear if
-  there's nothing stopping any chapter from producing materials with
Wikimedia-owned logos like Wikipedia one thanks to contracts b/w WMF
and those chapters
yes, but as I have said in some private e-mails
as we are living in CHinese dominate area
where we celebrate two new years within not more than one and a half month
so it is difficult for us to order stuff after new year

if we are clearly told, there is nothing will be sent to us
we can still order sth here in Hong Kong
but after the Gregorian new year, forget it, we can just do nothing 

so the main point we should learn here is
we shall make the communication between WMF and  chapter/ associated groups

-  that said, it is no same case for individuals who is organizing events
or just I misunderstand something.

PS: I am not sure it is the time to doing some work on reorganizing and keep update the contact list between the Staffs and chapter
as many new staffs will come, and more chapters will be approve

It's concerns for many people without local chapters in their country
or region I suppose.
