Last year was the first time we did Secret Santa, Christmas in July. I don't remember who hosted it, but I think it went well. So, I hope who ever hosted it last year don't mind if Papa Elf steps up to the plate and run this year's Secret Santa - Christmas in July.

Rules:
- DO NOT PARTICIPATE IF YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF SENDING A GIFT.
- Signup deadline will be Sunday, June 14th at 11:59pm. You will be contacted via e-mail with your recipients name, trf handle, address, and wishlist starting June 15th.
- Buy a gift for your recipient. Participating vendors will be posted in another thread soon.
- Recieve your gift.
-July 4th - open your gift!
- Post whatcha got and guess who sent it.
- Respond to thank yous :p

- If you want to participate, send an e-mail titled "Secret Santa" to n3tjm @ juno . com (without the spaces). In the e-mail, include the following information:

TRF Handle:
Real Name:
Address:
Phone #:
Wishlist:

Your Phone number will remain private, Papa Elf just needs it in case PapaElf needs to contact you. Last Christmas, the Wish Lish was an option I added, and it was a success. I ended up having to e-mail everyone that did not include anything in this field because TRF was down and nobody could check what their recipient wanted. So this field is a requirement now.

Have Fun!

Papa Elf

I think part of the problem is that the secret santa is a lot less noticeable here than it was in the coffee house.

I agree with that assessment. I was thinking it would be nice to have a banner or something that everyone can see no matter where they are.

I think a better idea is to ask the participants to put a Secret Santa link in their signatures. That will help promote it wherever the participants post.

June already? I'm still eating Easter candy and now it's Christmas time already? Papa Elf, I've been good. I'm just slow. Sign me in/up/whatever. Wish I may, wish I might, wish I had a rocket flight!
