Once again it’s time for Secret Santa! Christmas time is fast approaching and all the elves here at the north pole are busy working overtime to make sure all the good boys and girls get all the rockets, motors, and accessories they deserve :).

SIGN UP HAS ENDED.

- Signup deadline will be Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 26th at 11:59pm. You will be contacted via e-mail with your recipients name, TRF handle, address, and wishlist starting November 29th.
- Buy and send a gift for your recipient. How much you spend is optional, but typically most people spend about $20-$30 for their recipient. Participating vendors will be posted in another thread soon.

Secret Santa Contest!!!
This year Papa Elf will send a special gift to one lucky participant to encourage more people to sign up and not too wait till the last moment to do so. Every person who signs up will be entered in a drawing on a daily basis starting the day they sign up, till Thanksgiving Day. So the sooner you sign up, the more entries you get!

If you feel the need to send something to the North Pole, Jim Flis is authorized to provide you the information on how to reach Santa’s Village.

Have Fun!

Papa Elf

Boys and Girls, the Secret Santa contest is getting bigger and better. Whoever is going to win the surprise present is getting a treat. Already got prizes donated, thanks to those vendors that already offered to donate towards the prize pool, and I sure hope that many more will offer something too :). Which means you better sign up now, because we already have nine trf'ers with 26 or 25 entries to win the Secret Santa Contest :)

Speaking of vendors, Art Applewhite would like everyone to see his poll about Vendor Services for Secret Santa at https://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?t=6972. If you haven't yet, head over there and vote!
 
I am in this year as well. Email sent with info.

Wishlist: Fliskits Star Load, Tres, Alien 8, Frick n Frack, or a FlisKits gift cert.

Star Load is my first choice, but honestly, anything rocket related will be cool.

Hey Donald - you got the case for an M2200 Skid? Harold needs the excitement.

Hey, for someone who does not like sparkies, he should ban this motor :p
D12_Silver_Comet.jpg


An Estes D12-5 :p How the CMASS LSO and LCO missed this dangerous motor is unknown to me :p


Ironically, the first grass fire from flying a model rocket I put out was caused by a D12.
 
Well, it looks like my Secret Santa may get something extra special.

*IF* I can get the instructions finished in time, I'll include a special beta test of the TM-60 Raptor kit from Monster Rockets.

I'm not guaranteeing this, but I'm going to try my best to.
