SECRET SANTA 2017 SIGN UP

"Yes I know it's very early but....evidence suggests this is about the right time to start proceedings off...... (we started it October 18th last year).

For those of you who know the score - just sign up please.

For the new posters that may be intrigued.... it's just an annual 'thing' we've had going on BCB for many years now....an exchange of gifts across the board.... to a poster that has no idea who their "Secret Santa" is.... basically you send a gift/s to a poster and a different poster sends you a gift/s. Anonymously.

Simple as that really - deadline date for sign up is SUNDAY 19TH NOVEMBER 2017 please.

I will need from you (in a pm please) :

Your name and address (including any relevant postcode, zipcode etc necessary for international posters)

If you normally change your board name at Xmas to something festive - please advise me exactly what it is (so i can send pm's etc)

After deadline is over, I will collate and send your recipients name and address to you shortly afterwards.

PLEASE be aware of posting deadlines from your country to whichever part of the world you are sending your gift to. We got very very close to 100% arrival by 25th December last year - it would be magnificent if we could get it perfect this time around...... ;)

This is one BCB Tradition I think we really ought to keep going.... so let's have a strong sign up please.

Any questions fire away - admins can we get this onto "Yakety Yak" too please....

Last year my package went missing and it really broke my heart. Looking for some revenge.

The response seems to get smaller every year, but it's such a beautiful tradition, how could I not partake?

Address details PLEASE!!

Right - you should have all received your recipients name by PM. This is the person you are sending to....

I will get the addresses out later today.

This was completely at random - no one asked for any requests etc so I just scribbled 1-14 and drew them out of a bag.

It's November 20th. Which gives us 34 days (virtually five weeks) to get these sent off IN TIME for your lucky recipient to get their prezzie no later than Xmas Eve (in reality, Xmas Eve is a Sunday so that's one day less).

Let's really try to make it a clean sweep of people with parcels in time for Xmas this year guys and girls, please.

Can you firstly just confirm you've received the email and the address (which will be later today).

Thanks.

When will you sent out the addresses, DD? Have my parcel almost ready and I would like to send it out in the next couple of days.
