Secret Hogfather

Postby demdike » Wed Oct 08, 2014 11:36 am

Open to everyone who was a member of the forum up to yesterday and has contributed at least 5 posts. Perfectly willing to pontificate on the reasons for this in full and gory detail if required. For visitors who don't qualify then arrangements have been made via Reb at the shop for them.


Same rules as before, for anyone taking part I've recapped below. For ideas see previous thank you threads. The deadline will be 31st October (ish)

The plan:
1) List below if you would like to give and receive a Hogswatch Present, please include if you will be at Wincanton for Hogswatch. If not, please make sure you haven't a problem with your address being given to someone else. If it is a problem and you'd prefer only I should know your address then let me know.
2) If I don't have your CURRENT address then I'll pm you requesting it.
3) I will hold two secret ballots (those attending, and those not) and inform you of the person you need to buy a present for and, if required, their address asap after the deadline.
4) Make a present or buy one for approximately the same value as an LBE. (£5) should we increase this - discuss.
5) If you will be at Wincanton for Hogswatch, take the present with you and leave them with me or at a prearranged collection point. If you won't be at Wincanton then send your present either directly to the recipient, or if you prefer via me so that it is kept a secret.
6) Wait for your present to arrive. Do not open before Hogswatch!
7) Make sure you've all been good girls, boys, others.

My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
