I just spoke to Defender. Web/phone orders placed during the sale go onto "hold" status. People who visit the warehouse in person get first dibs on their available stock until the sale is over, then the web orders are filled from what's left after the sale. If they run out of the item it goes on backorder and is filled when it comes in. If it's a closeout item and they run out of it, it will not be reordered. For the 2013 sale, all shipping is suspended until March 25.

I've been toying with the idea of riding up there for the weekend. My wife has always wanted to visit Mystic, and if it's nice weather it would be a good excuse to go up there. With all the manufacuturers' reps there, it might be worth the looooong ride.
