And the stash too. That's where mine will come from and I'm not worried about what I paid for it.

Ditch a kit you'll never build...gat a fresh new shiny one......that you may never build!

One problem I can possibly see with that is someone unloading a really old, bear of a kit.

Another issue may be shipping.  International shipping can be expensive and what were to happen if someone donates something already paid for from their stash and can't afford to pay the international shipping?

I'll match people up based on region and interest, or not...there will be a checkbox on the form...send preference or not.

Yeah...matching people up region wise is good...shipping can take a while...I was assigned Brian from
Hobbylink Japan a few years back and even though I sent it in Nov, he didn't get it until January...

Matching on region and interest might be a good idea, but it also takes some of the surprise out of it, so making both optional is a good idea.  And yeah, I have a lot more trust here.  No Starfix Spitfires.  :D

And Jeeves at least it didn't have to go to Australia.  I've heard some horror stories trying to ship there and no real reasons why it can take so long sometimes.

Is it because the postpeople were drunk they thought up the costs ?

Let's not over complicate it. I can't write an algorithm...but I can sort by region. USA, CANADA, INTL.

Will it be a kit only secret santa now?  Or at least a kit minimum.

Also, what week will it run?  And when will the secret santa GB run?
