Default Net 54 Secret Santa's Back - Are you in?

In an attempt to revive an old tradition Ö itís time for the Net54 Secret Santa holiday exchange.

For those of you who have never participated in the Net54 Secret Santa exchange before, members who volunteer for the exchange are given the name of another Net54 participant and will anonymously mail that person a gift. On December 25th, everyone will open their gift and post the results.


Rules (the fine print)

1. Gifts should be in the $25 range. The best gifts are not usually the most expensive. Try to get creative.

2. Envelopes/packages should be clearly marked "do not open to Dec 25" or ďNet54 SSĒ or the like.

3. Open your present on the morning of the 25th

4. Report your present on Net54.


How it works.

1. Reply to this thread and let everyone know you are in BEFORE November 24th (Sorry for the tight deadline Ė but to get a present, mail it, and get it there on time Ė weíre actually starting a bit late).

If you were one of the 10 people that already replied in the other thread that you're in - you're in. But please complete Step 2 below to help me out! (IrishDenny - from your response I couldn't tell if you were in or not, so please let me know if you want to be).

2. Also by November 24th Ö PM ME with your: 1) Full name (there are lots of you I donít know!), 2) Full mailing address, 3) favorite team/player, 4)Collecting interest from the following categories: Pre-War, Post War, Modern, Non-baseball (FB, Basketball, hockey, nonsports), or any of the above

You will be matched to send something to someone who has the same collecting interest as you do. (So for example, if you have no Pre-War cards, it might not be the best idea to pick Pre-War.)

Feel free to add any addition details here if you wish. Many of us donít know each other well enough to know each otherís full collections - so any info you give me will be passed on to Santa.

Note to the Santas: you are only expected to hit the CATEGORY the person picked. If you can do better than that Ė GREAT! Your recipient will love that. But in truth many of us donít know each other well enough to find the perfect item Ė so recipients give Santa credit for trying.

3. I will PM you with your Secret Santa recipientís information (the items above) by November 29th (and sooner if I can swing it).

4. Find something fun, wrap it, mark it "do not open" till the 25th, and SEND IT OUT NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 11th (sorry again for the tight deadline Ė but 2 weeks is not a lot of time for the Post Office at this time of year).

5. Post on NET54 (in a reply to this thread) that you have mailed the package. If you have not posted by December 14, you should expect that I will be publicly asking you if the package has been sent.


Thatís it.

Let the exchange begin!

Patrick

This is just a bump to get this back to the top of the list.

If you want to be in - Please let me know by November 24th - that's this Sunday!

I will be getting names out to the Santas very shortly after that - so don't wait if you want to be in!

Cheers,
Patrick
