Was that the range last year, Brenda? I can't dismember.
It was $25-$30.

Setting a price range is not a bad idea, I suppose it keeps anyone from feeling dissapointed. Like, you give someone an IPOD, and you get a snow globe in return. But I wouldn't expect that with generosity I've experienced around here. But if you want to give more, well, I suppose that should be your decision....

my $0.02

How about 2 snow globes?

But I agree. The generosity of the folks here is just absolutely outstanding.

For the noobs, if you haven't gotten involved with the PIF or Trades, do it NOW! Get into the fun!

When everybody gets their booty I will post who the matchups were. It was a lot of fun.

Any interest?
I am definitely interested paisano, the only reason why I didn't do it last year was because of the chooch who was running it

Absofrickenlutely!!! I was just going to ask this question myself. I had an awesome time with this last year.

I think that the limit last year was $30. I know I went a little over that but as long as you don't really outdo anybody, I don't see a problem. 'Tis the giving season, right?

I like to think of it as the season of receiving.

I get fat, I get drunk at holiday parties, I get dirty looks from my wife for drinking too much at holiday parties, I get hangovers.

I get a lot of things at christmas; I am blessed.

Please make sure you do send your package. The gentleman that I sent my package to did not send his package to JHiggs.

I don't think I have seen that person here.

These are very good points.

Please, anyone who wants to be involved - if you don't have a trading rep already - please make sure you get involved immediately.

I got shafted in a trade last year - that was MY problem - I don't want anyone getting shafted because I let someone in who I shouldn't have.

On a positive note - keep the entries coming - it is going to be HUGE this year.
