The gift should cost around $20. Homemade gifts are encouraged, there is no price put on care, creativity and thoughtfulness. Also factor in consideration for shipping, so your overall cost should be around $30 depending on what you bought and how expensive it is to ship.

If you make something then you just have to factor in the cost for shipping.

Lynne, when is your deadline for a name? Do have a gift already and just need a name by a certain date?

If they want it by Christmas pro @ 4-5 days. No gift bought yet, but Belgium is famous for its chocolate.....so if you hook me up with a lover of the sweet brown that would be cool. Or I could get something signed by Anak, the Belgium climber that might be worth something someday.

Santa, I, myself, would like something climbing related. Smiles and Peace, lynnie

good idea, strider. Too many rules though. I say just let people send random gifts. Or one gift to one person. That person doesn't have to reciprocate. Just buy someone a tricam or two, a couple of lockers, whatever.

The problem is getting peeps addresses anonymously. I think that's where Strider comes in. Everybody send him you mailing address.

Mine's 2190 Brown Ave, Santa Clara, Ca. 95051, Strider.

I don't really need anything, but I got some people in mind!!!! Oh, yeah!!!!

I got to thinking too, an excellent gift idea is to but something from some of the SuperTaco artists and send it to someone. It's kind of a two-for, the artist wins and the recipient wins.

Karl's website comes to mind. There are other like Randy Wenzel, Jerry Dodrill.

Help me out and post others....

Umm, well most of the rules are about timeline stuff so everyone gets their gift in time. Sign-up by Tuesday, I email out names and address on Wednesday and everyone mails their gifts by Friday hoping they will arrive before Christmas.

And yes, for everyone to remain anonymous they just email me at
SUPERTOPOSANTA@GMAIL.COM
with their name and address and I will match them with someone random.

And there are no rules on gifts except that the cost should be around $20 if you buy it. If you make it there is no limit.

So if you want to join please email me at SUPERTOPOSANTA@GMAIL.COM and I will email you back a random name and address on Wednesday.

Cheers

If anyone would like to send me two new or in reasonably good condition BD Alaska picks I'd be really appreciative. That's what I want for Christmas.

In return I'll send you back some egg nog with some serious kick to it.

I'd take a B.B. gun too.
