I really enjoyed the past exchanges and wonder if maybe we could get one going this summer if there is enough interest.

Been waiting- of course I'm in.
The essence of the hunt for me is to enter nature and observe+ return safely occasionally with the gift of a life taken.

Ok, for those not familiar...here's the rules.
Hopefully we can get a few more to participate.
Not sure if we need official moderator to kick this off or not.
Terry?  Mudd?



Read the rules, sign up, and have fun!

IF YOU SIGN IN, PLEASE BE READY TO SEND YOUR PACKAGE TO THE PERSON RIGHT AFTER YOU. IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA SEND, DON'T SIGN ON.

FIRST GROUND RULE: If anyone gripes or whines, they get booted from Tradgang. Okay. I don't have that authority . . . but this is purely for fun like any white elephant gift exchange.

GROUND RULE #2: The item you send has to have SOME value. It may be a perfectly good item you no longer have use for or it may be something that is broken but repairable . . . or maybe it is only good for a decoration. As with any white elephant exchange, some will end up with something special and others will end up with . . .

GROUND RULE #3: You can only put your address on the thread once. No PM traffic, only public viewing.

GROUND RULE #4: Please SEND A PACKAGE to the person after you ASAP. You will send the person after you whatever you choose. You can make it or buy it or pull it out of your stash . . . or all three. Please send it ASAP so we can keep the elephant flying around the globe.

GROUND RULE #5: You must tell at least one other tradganger about this.

GROUND RULE #6: if you don't get your gift within a reasonable time, contact the person who was ahead of you on the list. Don't gripe, gossip, or complain. Clear communication and good expectations!

GROUND RULE #7: If you want to report what you got, thank you's, or pictures, put them on the "What the White Elephant brought me" thread that will be started in a few days.

You don't have to tell anyone what you are going to send.
I presume some will be frugal and some will be generous . . . that's the way people are! That's also the fun of this pass along white elephant.

Soooooooooo . . . who needs a surprise package????


REMEMBER: THE FUN OF WHAT FOLLOWS IS THAT PEOPLE WON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE GETTING, BUT IN A WHITE ELEPHANT, IT HAS TO START SOMEWHERE .

PS: The last person to sign up will send their package to the 1st poster.

Everyone PLEASE transfer your names to the Official thread.  This one was just to see if there was enough interest to start one.

Thanks

When does the official tread to post your white elephant goody start ?? I have my goody to share with everyone but didn't think I should start the tread.

We don't know where it went, there was no reason for it to be delete.... very odd.  This is what I was talking about glitches.

But if you were last, you send yours to Blacktail Bob
