    On second thought, I'm out. I don't need to add anything to the heap. In reality, I need to get rid of most of it....

    Sounds like a great way to do an exchange...the dude/girl with your name gets something from the pile, and your secret Santa replaces that one...the names may change, but the headcount stays the same :D

    Neat rocket! Now you have me wanting to add it to my wishlist. :D

    Speaking of changing lists, I see folks have posted updates to their lists. Are those also getting updated with Papa Elf? Is that allowed?

    He'll send the giftee wishlist he's received via email to the gifter when deadline comes. If the giftee is wise, they'll give him an updated list.

    I have seen several people request the deadline be sooner than Thanksgiving so they can take advantage of Black Friday's sales. Thanksgiving is the day I have time to take the time to sit down, decide who gets who, and send out all the e-mails. You will get your e-mail before Black Friday unless something happens to me. This is a lot of work. I'm not complaining. I love doing this. This is the eleventh year of doing this. It's important for me to do this. It's my small contribution to the rocket community.

    Here is the current list of people who have signed up. Note; if you send an e-mail that says I'm in, but don't give me any of your details... that does not count.

    And a good Secret Santa will return here and see if there is a new or updated list. I see I can't go back and edit mine however. Sending in updated lists may overwhelm the good Papa Elf, whatya say Papa Elf, we get one update email if we need it?

    Any e-mail with updated wish lists received before the deadline will be included in the e-mails that will be sent out. Secret Santa's are also encouraged to check this thread to see if there are any changes that where not e-mailed.

    You can't edit a post after a certain amount of time has passed, don't know how much time though.

    Where is this thread? I think in the whole time I've participated,I have yet to see a participating vendor list. Saw one vendor offer free gift wrapping for the event some time back but that's it. Just curious.

    2. Priority Mail shipping
    3. Drop shipment to Secret Santa recipient
    4. Package tracking for Secret Santa sender
    5. Customized Secret Santa card with gift

    Opps. Copy and paste error. When we first started doing this there was another thread. But then vendors started posting their specials in the main secret santa thread anyway.
