Secret Santa GB 22/23 Let the shopping begin
Posted by BrandonK on Friday, October 28, 2022 9:33 AM

I am pleased to annouce another annual SSGB. This one will be much like the past with only one subtle change.

Rules:

Sign up and email Santa at SSGB.Santa@Gmail.com with your name and address along with your wish list for your SS. Please remember that some of us have financial challenges and to keep requested items under $50. If the SS wishes to spend more, that's up to the SS. The email is to ensure communications take place privately as the PM system here is not functioning.

ALL entries must be in BEFORE November 24 as I will draw the names for SS giftees on that day and begin sending out emails to everyone with there giftee information and gift ideas. Late entries simply cannot be accepted as there is likely no one to pair you with at the late time.

Gifts are to be opened on Xmas day and quickly shared as soon as time alots. Building may begin as soon as you open your gifts. This year's GB will end on December 24, 2023. But you may build your gift from previous years in ANY active SSGB.

Participation is highly encouraged, please don't disappear once you've opened your gift. Even if you can't find time to get it built we all want to hear from you as the others build their gifts as time allows. Keeping this one active is the key to its true fun.

Finally, unbuilt gifts from ALL past SSGBs are welcome to come along and build or show us the completed kit. The SS really loves to see their gifts come to life.

Get signed up and email Santa with any questions or suggestions, let's not fill up this thread with those. If it warrents being posted to the group I will make mention of it here for everyone to see.

Happy Holidays and let's build some great kits and more importantly have great fun sharing the adventure.

BK aka Santa

Looks like I have everyone. Names are drawn, just waiting for last minute signups. Emails going out on Thursday.

For those that get giftees out of the US, I suggest either Amazon Prime and direct ship or buy from a shop in the same country and drop ship. Amazon is my go to as it works well and is cheap with prime free shipping.
