    This is probably as good of a time as ever to remind everybody that not everybody participates in drinking and that it's good practice to hold back on sending alcohol as a gift unless you actively know someone participates in that!

    Pinball is a sober hobby for a lot of people and I think it's important to give people who choose that lifestyle all the support they need to maintain it!

    Whoever gets me, feel free to send alcohol. I will gladly accept.

    I don’t drink, so I’ll give my secret Santa a hint!

    A nice bottle of Pappy Van Winkle would work!

    I'm excited for this year, and I hope we can beat last year's participation numbers. It's so much fun for all.

    Les tries to connect people in the same country where he can to save shipping.

    This is so true.

    It might sound simple but it’s not. Actually, it's a lot of work to plan, organize and get through this project.

    Well done LesManley and thanks!

    So what comes next you ask? I invested in some new fangled high tech computer help this year to make this process easier. I'm a little worried since I've only asked him to do one simple thing so far and he keeps telling me that he's afraid he can't do that, but I have high hopes things will get better. This mission is too important for me to allow anyone to jeopardize it. Anyway, I'm going to shut it down here and create a new thread for all participants to follow to keep things clean and simple. That thread is...

    If you are still late to the game or know someone else who is, you still have a chance to get it before everyone is matched up. Just shoot me a message. Other than that, Moderators robin please shut down this thread since registration is now closed. Thanks again!

    I Decided to pass this year we'll be watching everyone's gifts.

    #192 7 months ago

    I have not received my assigned person, I emailed on pinside a few days ago. Also checked my junk mail.

    #193 7 months ago

    Just got my Secret Santa present and it was in perfect condition upon arrival. In true spirit of Christmas however just like last year I will wait until Christmas to open it. I think there is a book inside. When I flip the box upside down it makes a light thud with what I think is a cover and pages closing. Whatever it is, thank you very much. You're the best!

    Actually, the Secret Santa 'reveal' page is here:

    As for that light thud, I find it's a bit concerning.. could be something trying to get out maybe?!!

    I would punch a few holes on the side to give it some air, you never know!
