    Quoted from hoby1:

    One question, do you try to pair up SS guys with SS and Em guys with EM.

    If not, besides for a gift card I would have no idea what to get an EM guy.

    Check out previous year topics and you can likely get some ideas.

    Sounds neat .... not sure yet. One question, do you try to pair up SS guys with SS and Em guys with EM.

    Nope.. but last year he did pair overseas peeps together, Canadian peeps separately and 'mericans together to save on shipping fees! You don't necessarily get EM or SS gifts.. it's x-mas.. u git whatcha git! Gotta do some research on your person!!

    #104 4 months ago

    I am in. Thanks

    #105 4 months ago

    This will be fun!

    You stalk their Pinside profile and see what they've talked about to see what they like and dislike. Most people use the same username in other places, so use that to your advantage too. The first year, I don't think I bought anything pinball related for my SS -- instead, bought the person stuff related to their favorite movie. And that first year, my SS made me a cool shirt with my name on the breast pocket and fun pinball terms on the back - people always come up and comment about it when I wear it at a pinball place. Nothing to do with EM vs SS -- you don't have to buy pinball parts.

    EDIT: "Stalking" sounds bad, but I use that term because my wife said that's what I did to my first SS.

    #110 4 months ago

    Sign up now! Don't miss the fun!

    We need to beat last year's count, and keep this growing...

    Does Robin have an achievement for this? He should put one in! Santa Claus tuque (hat for non-Canadians!) or something.

    #111 4 months ago

    Great idea but how does it work with overseas residents?
    Shipping fees might scare the gifter

    The man organizing it matches up by country for shipping. Canada for Canada, USA for USA, Europe for Europe, etc. etc. Contact the OP for more info if there is a problem for you.

    Yes, I definitely try to keep it that way as much as possible to prevent shipping from getting out of control. For instance, I just shipped a 10oz box that had 100 trading cards in it to Great Britain and it was $24, so you can imagine that gift money could get eaten up quickly with international shipping.

    #114 4 months ago

    Thanks
    Will register but beware, though Switzerland is in Europe, it is not part of EU.
    We have custom fees when receiving from EU and they have fees when receiving from us

    I just sent out an e-mail to everyone who participated in 2018. Of course, right after sending I see in the title it says the deadline is 11/5 instead of 11/15 but at least the date is right in the e-mail content.

    It went out to everyone, so as the e-mail states, if you have already signed up, no need to do anything, just ignore it. We're up to 108 now too.

    #116 4 months ago

    I’m in again thx for the email reminder

    #117 4 months ago
    Quoted from LesManley:

    #119 4 months ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    What was the participation number last year?

    #120 4 months ago

    #135 4 months ago

    Dear Lord, I don't ask for much but please...

    #136 4 months ago
    Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

    Should we reach out to the folks who were on board last year and the year before to make sure they’re aware of this? It can easily be passed by if you are thinking about it and not looking for it. They may not have known it’s started again?

    Quoted from LesManley:

    I have everyone's e-mail address from last year. I'll try to send out a mass e-mail today to everyone. 4 days left...

    I’m so glad this worked out and we got a bunch of folks who would have otherwise not realize!! Glad we set a new record and can’t wait to see who I get

    #137 4 months ago
