Holiday Booze Exchange 2014 U.S.A.

Post by Bluto » Sat Nov 01, 2014 8:33 pm

It's HBE time again ladies and gentleman.
I'm happy to facilitate.

My thoughts:

I'll send out pairings on or around November, 23rd. That gives everyone three weeks to get involved.

No need to get crazy. If you can afford to send a bottle of Blue that's your choice but it shouldn't be required. Take the time to know your recipient. Send them something special. Maybe it's local booze they can't get, maybe it's just something you know they like.

Sorry to those outside the USA. History has proven it's hard to do an intercontinental HBE. I'd we need a fixer I'll gladly connect you wonderful drunkards, too. My guess is that you can all take care of yourselves, though.

Here's to you, Drunkards. I toast you all.

Cheers,

Bluto

Hey Bluto if it turns out to be just us three, let's just send something to everyone. I'll get you two and so on.

It is still early November, I think that you'll find that plenty of others will sign-up as Christmas gets closer.

That's the usual pattern of events, anyway.

So to stop the dribs and drabs, may I suggest that you put a closing date for entrants for this year's USHBE?

I wish that were true. The last few years it's been the same small group of people.

So, in the interest of drawing some new blood here is what I'm going to do:
everyone that signs up this year will get a little ssomething extra from me in the holiday stockung. No guarantee s as to what it will be, though. A half pint of bottom shelf vodka? A shot glass? Half a bottle of aspirin? Who knows?

I'll put closing day as the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Gifts should be sent by MLK Day in January.

cheers

Bluto, if you're willing to do that, then I will, too.

Imagine what might arrive in the post from a drunken injun lost in the woods of the north country?

Geese are in!!! I am afraid though, with crazy schedules and work stuff these days, we are both negligent in checking in here. To be sure we get our pairings and other related correspondence, would you please send everything to meganw5638 at gmail dot com? Please and thank you :)

It shall be done. Pull your personal info from the board and send me a PM.
Chances are I still have your stats, but it's better to be safe than sorry in these matters.

Match ups have been sent but only 1 has made it out. The others are held up in my outbox. If a benevolent ad min could help with that I'd be grateful.

The system is set up so that they will sit in your "outbox" until the recipient opens them. So, I fear, there is little that I can do except suggest that all those involved ensure that they check their "inbox" regularly and make sure that they have space in their "inbox" to ensure that they have space to receive Bluto's PM; and once you have read the PM, move it to your "saved box. That way you'll have save the information and have space for further PMs.
