It's that time of year again. This year will be the fifth annual Supertopo Secret Santa Gift Exchange. The previous 4 years have been a pretty fun success so hopefully we can get even more people involved this year. For reference:





Supertopo Secret Santa Gift Exchange 2013 Rules
 You must be a registered forum user of Supertopo.com BEFORE 11/4/2013. Sorry to you lurkers who want to participate but this is to insure that we don't get any opportunists who want free stuff without reciprocation.
 Having said that, if you do agree to participate you also acknowledge the fact that you may receive NOTHING back if your Secret Santa is a d#@&%ebag. We will of course mercilessly torment them on the forum but otherwise there is nothing to be done.
 And having said that, DON'T BE A JERK! Do not sign up if you are not FULLY COMMITTED to FULL PARTICIPATION.
 The gift should cost around $20. Homemade gifts are encouraged, there is no price put on care, creativity and thoughtfulness. Also factor in for shipping, so your overall cost will be around $30 depending on what you bought and how expensive it is to ship.
 Gifts MUST NOT BE NSFW!!! (NSFW= not safe for work) No porn, rubber appendages, lingerie, etc...! EVERYONE should plan on sending and receiving something clean and fun!
 Everyone is encouraged to post of pics of their gift, sharing the joy with the rest of us!

 EMAIL ME BY 11/30/2013 if you wish to participate
 Email me at supertoposanta (at) gmail (dot) com
 IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU ADD THE ABOVE EMAIL TO YOUR SPAM FILTER. Every year we have problems with my emails getting filtered through spam. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, when you email me to join ADD THE EMAIL TO YOUR SAFE SENDERS LIST
 Give me your supertopo name, real name, shipping address and any other special considerations like gender/allergies/crazy phobias/etc... =)
 Secret Santa Name Distribution emails will go out on 12/3/2013. In this email will be the name and address of who you need to send your gift to. Also, at the same time, someone else is getting your name and address so they can send you a gift!
 You will now have 2 weeks to purchase or finish creating your gifts
 Have your package in the mail by 12/16/2012. This gives 9 days for shipping (hopefully enough to ensure timely delivery during the Holiday Rush)

You do NOT have to respond to this post to participate. Maybe you are Royal or Jim Bridwell or Chris Mac or etc... and wish to remain anonymous. Fine. However you MUST send an email to me supertoposanta (at) gmail (dot) com but otherwise participation is 100% anonymous unless you choose to divulge your identity to your recipient yourself.

Happy Holidaze!

It will be hard for whoever draws my name to top Gal's gift from last year, but that's A-OK.

Déjà vu all over again to the psychic vibes....
In for sure. I'll be in Germany for awhile visiting my son during that time so I'll need to get it sent as soon as I get my buddy's name. It should work though to get it to them on time.

i was thinking of mailing my vision
to someone willing.

i need a small break from
my runaway wonder.

simply too much gaze,
these days.

seeing thru my eyes
is like sinning thru jesus' limbs.

wood this be a valid gift?
i'd expect only in return
a box of silence.
