Secret Santa 2021/2022 Entries now closed. Drawings made.
Posted by BrandonK on Sunday, October 3, 2021 12:50 PM

Hello everyone,

Its time to begin thinking about the SSGB for Xmas this year. Sign ups begin now and will end on thankgiving day where you will be assigned your giftee and given the details of the kits requested. Just like years before it will run from Xmas day to Dec 24 of 2022.

Get on the roster and then PM me with your full name, address and the kit you would like to be sent. Please keep the requests to items of $40 or less.The SS can however, decide to gift something more expensive, that is their choice. Just remember we are not all made of money and we have a hobby to support.

SS's will be notified on Thanksgiving of who thier giftee is and what they would like. We need to all have our gifts in the mail early this year as it looks to be a mess with shipping. PLEASE get going on mailing early. The goal is to have everyone open thier gifts on Xmas day and post up what they got and soon get to building.

BK

Ok gents, the roster is updated. 

Again, remember this year the shipping concerns here in the US is disaster and expected to get far worse. Plan ahead and get you gift shipped as soon as possible to avoid late deliveries.

WOW, as many as last year, and still over a month to go.

Santa is going to be as busy as the other package delivery places this year.

Based on what we are hearing, getting what we want when we want it this year may be a huge challange. Good luck Santa.

The way my Amazon and Mega hobby orders are taking so long to get delivered lately,  might not be a bad thought.  Especially considering we have a couple from overseas and our northern neighbors.

They will arrive eventually. I'm thinking that we should purchase from overseas shops and ship direct rather than here in the states and then ship over. Should be faster and cheaper.
