Brandon, I've decided to jump in after all. Please let me know what I need to do. What's the process for PM'ing? 

Mike

 

Just click on his name and it will take you to his profile and you can message from there.  Include the info asked for in the original post on the first page.

After he matches names he'll pm the giftees info to you and you get to shopping.  Most will have the gift sent direct, just let BK know if gift wrapped so he can warn the person if safe to open.  We all wait till Christmas to open, post up a pic and get to building.

Welcome aboard, this is a great build, you never know what's in the package

Welcome Mach1 and mawright20. You'll have a good time on this GB.

mawright20, like GH stated, click on my name under my pic and you will open a PM to me. Let me know what you're looking for. Try to give the SS some room to make judgements and keep the cost resonable, say no more than $30-40 for the kit. I'll add you to the roster and PM you your giftee's name, address and requested item/s. Then you shop and send the gift to them for Xmas day opening.

This is the largest group we have had in recent years. This will be super fun.

The giftee lists will go out today. Everyone will know who their item is sent to by name, not screen name. Everyone will get to see what was sent to everyone else on Xmas day. Till then, you only know what you know.Wink

List received and successful stash dive completed!  Found a fresh one, plus a little “extra” for that personal touch!

I’ll be wrapping tonite and going postal, I mean going to the post office, tomorrow.

Well, the deed is done and on the way.  Giftee should hear a "clunk" on the roof in the next week to 10 days as it falls out of the sleigh.

I'm with G, was a fight not to add to the order for myself. 

BK- sent PM to let giftee know if safe or not.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

I won't leave kits in the car. I'd sooner leave a brick of gold lying on the seat than a new model kit. That's just plain crazy talk.

Nice.....now you can just trade out packages.Big Smile  Doesn't sound like your SS made it easy to peek.

Reminds me of a gift exchange at one of the prospecting clubs I belong to....Guy wrapped it in about 8 layers of duct tape...poor giftee about destroyed the item unwrapping it.

Now that's just genius.  May try that with the kids This Christma.  Slow them down a bit

I must be feeling devious lately. I'm working on figureing out how to make this into a SS White Elephant GB next year. How the gears are turning.

Perhaps you assign a name, but then some else's wishlist?

That'd certainly be a rude awakening to expect a fighter jet but end up with a Tiger tank or vice versa!  Smile
