    I have been waiting for this post!

    Did not think it was going to happen but I am glad I was wrong. This will be the 3rd time in a row that I will do this. Could not have it any other way. Last year I decided to be part of the international shipping but, the person I got was actually in the U.S. So, I will gladly sign up again this year for international shipping.

    Damn it I'm in I will post something later.
    I will ship anywhere except to Georgia, I don't like Georgia, I keep asking Ebay if I can make that part of my shipping profile but they repeatedly say it's ok to not be able to ship flat rate to Hawaii, but I can not discriminate against Georgia.

    On TT, long enough but quiet lately

    I should ask this before, but I am assuming everyone who said no to shipping Internationally is located in the US?

    I think you are lacking the 50 posts requirement, so someone needs to vouch for you.

    Okay @dela04 you got a pass, I am assuming you going to be active on the forums more now and not going to dodge out after the Secret Santa.
    From your post history, you seem to be on the up and up. :tup:
    Keep in mind you will be held accountable if you did not deliver your gift.

    Also something to note for next years rules, who ever is organizing it.

    please make sure you filled out your forms and your included pictures by this Friday.

    Saturday I will PM each of you for your shipping address and email and then give out assignments.
    If you want to PM me your shipping address and email now, that will speed up the process.

    If I don't get a Shipping Address for you I will be forced to drop you from the list.

    Assignments are given out. Everyone please check your Email.
    Except for two of you I some how didn't get emails so you got PMs instead. Please Email me back, it's how I am keeping track of everything.

    Please Reply to your emails soon as you can.
    Bonus points for JRDIBBS who already replied

    If there is any problems please email me at darksakul@gmail.com

    All assignments was done via random number generator.
    I did not have a clear list of who got who last year so sorry if I made any repeat match ups.
    Everyone is with in the Continental United States and I went by a excel spread sheet to keep all assignments organized.

    As of this point I will only do reassignments if there is a seriously major issue.

    May your Holidays be down right fierce
