3rd Annual JediDefender Secret Santa gift exchange!
« on: November 30, 2005, 09:41 PM »
I'm running a little late here in getting this up and running, so we're gonna have to move quick on it folks...  That said, it's time for the 3rd annual JediDefender Secret Santa gift exchange!  Sign-ups will be ending at noon on Dec. 7...

We've had a lot of fun with the prior two (thanks to Wayne/Reconsgt for the original idea), and exchanged a lot of cool SW (and non-SW) goodies, so if you're interested in partaking in the festivities this year, then go ahead and give us a holler here, and we'll sign you up!

This is pretty much just like most Secret Santa games you've probably been involved with in the past.  We're gonna have a sign up list, and then I'll draw names out of a hat, at which point everyone will be assigned another JD member to send a gift to.  It usually helps if everyone gets their trade list wants up to speed and bumped in the trading forum, so your Secret Santa knows what may be of interest to you.  No real dollar limit perse.  Anything from $5 to $50 is just fine - whatever you feel comfortable with.  We probably averaged about $20 - $25 a gift in the first two gift exchanges, if that helps give you a ballpark amount to roll with.  I'll go ahead and take down everyone's addresses too, and will PM them to whoever gets assigned that respective person.

I should add that if you feel particularly inclined to send a gift to a specific person (perhaps you have something that you know that they really want), feel free to let me know and maybe I can "fix" a name or two...  ;)

Feel free to browse folks' trade/want lists here, or have another member do a little "third party investigating" on your behalf, or just find some fun stuff all on your own.  So with that said, let's get the sign ups going here, and have some fun!  We'll probably run the sign-up for about a week.  I think that's everything for now, but feel free to give us a shout if you've got any questions about the gift exchange.  So without further ado...

Last year at this time, I was pretty much still a newbie at JD, so I didn't take part in this.  But I've been excited to do so this year, so consider me added to the list.

Too bad you're running this Matt, since I've got a great pink sweater that needs a new home and I doubt you'll be crazy enough to let me be your secret Santa...

He means he'll be at a "meeting" and be too drunk to comprehend how to mail a package by then, so he'd better do it before he leaves.   :-X

Is the the send-before-Christmas version, or is it just before 4th of July like last year?

Please put me on the list, either way.
