For those shipping late, please choose a shipping method that will guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.  I sent out several packages on the 10th and I just chose first class with tracking through USPS.  It is now the 18th and the three that were headed out of country (UK, France, and Australia) are all sitting in customs in the US since the 14th.  These luckily were not secret santa packages, but dang it they shouldn't be sitting in customs forever.  No

Unfortunately that's nothing.  My ESB one sheet which came from Sweden sat in JFK customs for a month.

Got a last minute deal squared away. More of a gift exchange than a "secret" santa since there is only two involved, but one of them doesn't know the username of the other yet...... Twisted Evil

After Christmas I will be happy to share with curch who the user is, but not until then so Mystery username who shall remain anonymous......thanks for stepping up last minute.

Thanks guys. I left myself off the list in case anyone need some last minute stuff (had another guy already lined up also as a backup who offered to be an alternate early on).

It has been a pleasure to do this so far. Gotta say I respect AJ having done it for so many years as I had a few things that needed ironing out, but now I know how to better organize the drawing of names and learned how to send out mass messages. cheers I am sure you guys may have known how to do that already, but I never needed to send the same message to multiple people before so had never figured it out. Really easy once you know how so no more copy and pasting for the generic stuff. lol!

Next year will be so much easier I think as I will have a better handle on how to do it. AJ gave great advice early on.

Do we have any members in Sweden who may want to do th secret Santa? Got another last minute add on and I am not sure it can be done by someone out of country with buying, receiving, then resending and we are down to like 30 days. Gonna give it a shot by hoping someone in country might want to try so it is a bit easier and doesn't have to go through customs a bunch of times. If someone is let me know via pm ASAP please.
