    Default Christmas Gift Exchange VIII

    We've done it the last seven years and had a lot of fun with it, so to to continue the practice if we have folks that are interested. The way it works......

    If you want to participate, just say so in this thread. On the 1st of December the names of the participants will be drawn from something appropriately outdoorsy to determine whom will be exchanging gifts with who. This will give everybody a chance to get the gifts out in time to be received before Christmas. As far as the gifts go - no need to spend a lot of $$$ (but of course you can if you draw my.....oops - almost said that out loud). Give something you make, something you already have, or something you buy.

    Unfortunately, we have had a few issues with brand new members jumping in and then failing to follow through. I'm a bit saddened that this is necessary - given the reason for the exchange and all - however, the actions of a few have dictated that to participate you must be a senior member unless you participated last year (and followed through).

    I'll keep a running narrative of who is in every time I post in this thread. I'll start it off.....

    I'm in.

    Ho, ho, ho. Count me in. Since chimneys have given way to metal pipe I will no longer be using your chimney to deliver the present. USPS probably.

    I have not done this yet, despite being a member for more than 7 years. I am in this year.

    crashdive, the concept is admirable and in keeping with the best traditions of the season. But I would feel uncomfortable directing a charitable donation to a dead drop, so would it be Okay if I sent another member a gift & requested that they donate thier gift to the USMC Toy's for Tots anonymously?

    If you would like the person that draws your name to donate to Toy's for Tots that's fine and completely up to you.

    I think I'd like this, but I don't know how I feel about anybody here having my mailing address...
    The pessimist complains about the wind;
    The optimist expects it to change;
    The realist adjusts the sails.
