Happy Hogswatch!

Postby Tonyblack » Tue Sep 06, 2011 10:42 am

It’s that time of year again folks – the time of the year to start thinking about Hogswatch and especially Secret Hogfather gifts. :D

You may remember that we’ve done this for the last couple of years, if not you can read about it HERE.

Hogswatch will be on Saturday 26th November this year as it is always celebrated the last weekend of November.

So all Secret Hogfather gifts will need to arrive before November 26th.

If you haven’t taken part in this before, let me explain it to you. :)

If you are interested in buying or making a Hogswatch gift for another forum member, post on this thread to show your interest and whether you are able to post locally (to you) or overseas.

I will make a list and ask you to email your home address to me atImage then I will match you up with another forum member and let you know what address you have to send the gift to.

We’ll have a cut off date for registering for this of October 1st. Once you have the address of your gift recipient, then get it posted to them as soon as you can making sure it arrives before Hogswatch Day.

The person you send to will NOT be the person who sends a gift to you and it’s kind of fun to keep your identity secret – or as secret as possible.

Last year we allowed newbies to take part and we only had one problem of a newbie who got a gift but didn’t send one in return. I know that newbies come and go, and to save disappointment this year I’m going to say that you can only take part of you have a post count of 50 or over. That at least shows that you have a certain commitment to staying on the board. If you haven’t hit that 50 post mark yet, don’t worry too much as you’ve got until 1st October to register – so you still have time to reach that target.

The gifts should cost around £5, but that very much depends on you. If you are mailing overseas then bear in mind how much postage is likely to cost.

For now though, post here if you are interested in joining in and I’ll start making a list. :D

I just read through last year's thread and changed the title of this thread because Del didn't enter last year because she thought the thread was about something else. :lol:

What DaveC said. :?

Tony, I recommend removing your email address. Post a distorted picture of it instead. Else spam should abound very shortly.

I haven't had a problem in the past, but you're probably right. You can access my email address via the button in my post anyway. :wink:
