Handle comes from the days of Citizen Ban (CB), it's the name you went by over the air. Pig Pen and Rubber Duck probably being the most famous. Lol
Your TRF handle is the name you go by on The Rocketry Forum (TRF)
Your handle is Brian.

Do you know where we send the gift to? or will that come in the mail (as in email, you would get a email that tells you what adress to send it to)

When Papa Elf closes registration, June 12th, he will enter all the names into some sort of randomizer. It pairs Secret Santas with their recipients. He will send you an email telling you who your recipient is and the list for that recipient. Keep it secret, hence the Secret in Secret Santa. The lists are wish lists, not shopping lists and contain anything from kevlar shock cord all the way to L3 rocket kits. The rules say $20-$30 bucks but realistically most people spend more than that, especially when you throw in shipping, which will run up to 18 bucks from some vendors.

Just try to order your gift so it will arrive on time. It's disheartening to not receive a gift on time, happened to me a few times. But they have been worth the wait.
Most of all don't sweat it, don't stress over it. Gifts are appreciated no matter what and it is all in good fun. I mean, be realistic though, don't have $100+ items on your list and then only send your recipient a pair of rail buttons. LOL
