Secret Santa?
« on: Mon Nov, 05, 2012, 06:12:PM »
Anyone game for a secret Santa? All interested would sign up. I'll make a form. Then I randomize the list and send you a name. You ship a kit to your secret Santa, value no more than $20, and we all have fun.

Are you in?

You could follow it up with a Secret Santa GB   So you have to build the kit you were sent no matter what it is  ;D ;D

I really love the Secret Santa idea.  The only thing is the $20 thing, I have kits in my stash I know were more than $20 that I would love to give out as a Secret Santa.

I also really like the idea of a Secret Santa group build!!!

Yeah, the $20 limit kinda excludes most kits these days, but it could always be a kit accessory, paint set, or something not model related.

I'm leading one at another model site infrequent and it's a great idea...although with the GB that follows it- despite it being a year-long build, few finish their builds...so that is something to consider...another cool thing we do is include a post card from our town and in some cases, something non model related from where we live...like Grendels Beaver nuggets ;)

You got me thinking now. Why not a contest category? Secret Santa gotta send full kits though, all the parts.
And the voluntary, whatever you want, fee for the category is 100% proceeds to charity of winners choice.

All great ideas, I love the group build idea. I'm on board with Adam and PharmPony though, theres not that many kits out there for 20 bucks. More than likely I would donate from my stash and I dont think any of those are under 20. Just something to think about.

I'd totally be game for a secret santa exchange and GB. Sounds like fun. Just as a side note I think the $20 limit is ok, lots of good Airfix, Revell, Minicraft or Academy kits under that price point. I think the focus should be a fun build, no AMS'ing, and maybe building something outside of our usual subjects.
