PostSubject: For Bryan (trappedtexan)   Mon Dec 07, 2015 10:53 pm

I just wanted to throw a quick shout out to Bryan for all of his meticulous work and take over of this year's Secret Santa.

Though we have a few more weeks before the big day, from what I've seen so far, it looks like everything is coming along and I think he's done such a stand-up job with keeping everything and everyone who is participating updated on the regular -- to ensure a nice turnout so that the community is happy come that special time of year!

I also thought it was such a nice gesture to include members who slightly missed the deadline and in the end, even if there are those who receive their gifts a little late or whatever the case may be, just know that Bryan did the absolute best that not many people could pull off when asked of such a task.

I hope you all will join in on thanking Bryan.

So without further ado: Thanks trappedtexan!

Secret Santa organising can be a chore, but the gift exchange side of things is always a delight. This year I get just the fun side of things so thanks again Bryan Very Happy

SS organisation can never be understated. It's a nerve wracking chore and as an organiser you worry non-stop until the last parcel has arrived. A big thanks to Bryan for organising this - when the results are posted on Xmas day, that's when the payback comes.

Cheers
Rich!

Thanks guys, I do what I can for TIG. AJ dos it every year and need a break so he could just enjoy being in it and not have the fuss over running it. Mit hasn't been a bad experience anyway. Like Richard said the thing is you mostly just worry until that last package arrives.

Kudos to anyone taking up that task. I can only imagine the networking and record keeping that's needed to do it well. AJ did brill before and nice that Bryan has stepped up to give the old fella a break. Good work Bryan cheers

My only issue is that Bryan didn't participate! Next year you better include yourself. Great job Bryan!

I can certainly support the kudos given here! I've organized a SS in the past as well, and just like others have said, it can be a little stressful at times. But seeing everyone rewarded with a fun little addition to their collections is a great feeling. Thanks Bryan for helping work towards that goal for us all!

I believe everyone has now received their gift so Bryan you can relax now mate and look foreward to seeing all the pics on Christmas day cheers
I know Bryan could not settle until he knew everything had gone to plan and it has, what a guy :clap: (and he's not even getting one himself, that won't happen next year, we will make sure)

I heard Bryan isolated himself inside a dark chamber, planning this year's S.S. with only the company of silence.. on a bread and water diet.

Pretty serious stuff!















lol!
