    Secret Santa... Did you get yours yet?

    I didn't ask if you opened it. We can post that as an edit into this thread but I thought it would be nice if we knew our Secret Santa packages arrived unscathed by those vile shipping agencies that love to bash our precious packages to space debris before we get to launch them into debris ourselves. (just kidding to anyone working for Big Brown or USPS or Fedex)

    Sound Off!!!! If you got yours!!!

    Mine was ordered today, shipping soon.

    Also a poll have you ordered your Secret Santa gift Yet?

    I thought the idea was to post in the SS thread. Then there was going to be a separate "What you got thread" on Christmas Eve...

    I didn't know anything about that. But I would like to know well before Christmas eve if I need to contact the retailer to speed up or cancel and reorder something so it will show up by Christmas. And that thread is way to long anyway but what ever works I guess. Sorry if I caused a problem.

    Well, I've ordered two of the same item, one for moi and one being direct-shipped to my Secret Santa Victim (SSV). So when mine shows up, I"ll have a pretty good idea when my SSV's package will arrive. It did take me several days to come up with an idea, though; my SSV didn't post anything to the "wish list" thread, and his/her profile was little help.

    I haven't received anything yet. There's still time.

    I took care of my SSV as soon as I got home from work and found the email. I wanted it done early, because the closer we get to Christmas, the longer it will take to get something shipped due to the massive amouts of packages during the holiday season.

    Originally, I was *stumped* with what to give my "victim." I think I've got it narrowed down to 2 choices. I will get mine ordered/sent/shipped/whatever by the end of the week.

    Ordered, but they have not posted as having received yet.

    I had a little trouble finding it in stock. Thank goodness for the internet, so I could check several places in a couple of minutes and it was no big deal looking.
    I went over the planned budget, but what the heck.

    I don't know if mine has arrived yet, I'm out of town until tomorrow evening, but the vendor from whom my victim's item was shipped tells me via PM that it was shipped on the same day as another TRFer's, who has apparently received his. Unfortunately, my victim hasn't responded to this thread yet. (Narrows it down a bit, doesn't it?)

    I'm really not sure if I've received mine yet or not. I got something in the mail, which was unmarked, unidentified, but was from a company which I've pretty much only heard about through other TRF members. The item in the box was totally unrelated to rocketry, so I've got my doubts.

    On the other hand, I know from the tracking number that the gift I sent has been received as of early last week, but the recipient hasn't posted it on any of the SS threads. Fortunately, the vendor I used is also a TRF member, and was kind enough to include gift wrapping as part of his service and the note indicating that the gift was from a TRF SS participant.

    My victim finally posted on the other thread that his arrived. I was getting worried since it had been a while since it was sent.

    Still waiting on mine to arrive.
