Welcome to the Tenth Annual Supertopo Secret Santa Gift Exchange.

We are doing things a wee bit different this year. The event now celebrates the end of yet another spin around the sun. As such, gifts do not need to arrive prior to Christmas, but let's aim to celebrate the New Year by having gifts arrive at their designated location by Monday, December 31.

The previous nine years have been a wonderful success. Let's do our best to spread the word and keeps things going and growing.

I have simplified the rules this year to limit the number of words you must digest.

1. If you sign up to give a gift then please finish what you started. We are all anxiously awaiting to receive our secret gift. You do not want to bring tears to a fellow SuperTopoian.

2. No one needs to go broke giving a gift. Homemade gifts are encouraged, there is no price put on care, creativity, and thoughtfulness.

3. Gifts MUST NOT BE NSFW!!! No porn, rubber appendages, lingerie, etc. These gifts may be opened in the presence of children so please keep that in mind. EVERYONE should plan on sending and receiving something clean and fun!

4. Once you receive your gift please post pics! Not only does it let your Secret Santa know the gift was received, but it lets the rest of us see just how cool your present is!

TO PARTICIPATE:

1. YOU MUST EMAIL ME BY MONDAY 12/17/2017 if you wish to participate! You will receive an acknowledgment from Santa saying that you are in. If you do not receive an acknowledgment then he did not receive your email! Try again!

2. The correct email address to use is: SIMON (at) VERSHKE (dot) com. Do not send your notice of participation through SuperTopo!

3. In your e-mail you must give me your Supertopo name, real name, shipping address and any other special considerations like gender/allergies/crazy phobias/etc.

4. Secret Santa Name Distribution emails will go out on 12/18/2018. 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!


Let’s make this year’s SuperTopo Secret Santa Gift Exchange the biggest and best one ever!

Oh, wow, Plastic!
Great gift to come home and find that Secret Santa is ON for this year!
If we want, it is still kosher to send gifts to arrive by Christmas? I am being silly, never mind. :)

I'm in! I always get the most spectacular gifts from people, and I hope my gift this year will make someone as happy as your great gifts—O Secret Santas of Christmases Past—have made mine. I even took my two JT prints (and the card!) and they are up on the non-map wall in my field office. You guys are the best!
Thank you Plastic! You are super to do this for us!

OK, so life isn't perfect and it's the holiday season and all the craziness it demands.....but let's get on the Secret Santa Bandwagon, let our hair down and have some jokes, jollies and fun.

Zip, are you on board yet? The train hasn't left the station and there is a seat reserved for you. :)

Perhaps we can include Susan's idea along with our personal gift giving. A gift to the campfire and another gift for the fire victims.

I think scrooge has left the room and the grinch's heart is growing.

It's all about crowd mentality me thinks. If the Fish, russ walling, would sign on here we'd get a stampede. For the olden days......put out a hook.

Hi Lynne,
Oh, yes, life is wonderful! I am glad to hear or your fun and adventures as well. I am doing a multi-year archaeological survey in a wilderness area and the surrounding lands. I have discovered two prehistoric village sites and more—much more. I love being back out in nature doing archaeology. Next year, at least one, perhaps three former grad students from NU who became archeologists will be joining me in the field for more survey work. In 2020, we will being specific site investigations of some of the sites, and work to preserve the graves I have found as well. I am delighted to hear life is going well and that you are still in the game. Let me know if you get out to Montana. Much Love, ff.
