Last year's thread http://www.vapercafeaustralia.com/threads/vca-kris-kringle-secret-santa-2015.974/ Many will be familiar with this. Yes, it is early, but it takes time to nut out price ranges etc. Register your interest before September 30th to be included in the festivities [this allows people to shop from china etc, as well as plan] We can set price range together, last year it was $40, but I think lots cheated and spent more I will participate this year since it isn’t so secret in the end Your santa will be set by running a computer python script and the “random” functions in the python manual There will be a loose requirement to be an “active” VCA member, without setting a minimum post count or join date, and vouches from VCA members of non active members are a valid entry method. It is recommended to have at least 1 other participant on social media or email, so we can track you down if you stray It is pretty simple, you post interest in this thread, your name will be given by PM to another participant to buy a Christmas gift for you within the chosen spending limit. It is not a reciprocal buy for each other deal, your santa and your person to buy for will be two different people. We then set a posting date around late Nov/early December, spend another week or so trying to rustle up those who have strayed etc. Then set a grand opening date in December, allowing a while before the 25th so not everyone will be on holidays etc. Any questions, just ask. We'll sort it out together. @Browny offered help last year when we had a hiccup, not sure if the offer still stands.
