Christmas (Holiday) Mystery Gift Exchange

Hey Folks...we had this last year (also a Thanksgiving exchange but I think one might be better) - would anybody be interested in this? I will organize it if there is enough folks who want to do it.

Basically, everyone submits their name to me who wants to exchange gifts (cigars, accessories, etc.) - I will organize the list secretly and randomly match up who gives to whom and pm individually to the appropriate giver.

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

Any interest?

Sounds like a great idea.

Let me think about it... OK... I'm IN!

Finally, I'll have someone to pass off this fruit cake. It's been a great doorstop, but I think someone else could use it.

Cool - I was hoping everyone would go for this - it really was great last year!


Is that a tobacco flavored fruit cake, T?

Whatever it is, I'm sure it's full-bodied and full-flavored by now.

Heh - that's big DOH for me - you even mentioned it in the first post...

Nice sig by the way - I used to live in New Brunswick - right between the two campuses.

Thanks man - looks like they will be out by you this weekend. Yikes!!!! Going to be tough playing the Panthers in Pitt.
I am enjoying our ranking while it lasts.



This is shaping up to be pretty good so far....thanks for the response!

Any suggestions on prices or stipulations?

I am pretty open on that - especially if we only do only one of these. Plus the fact that my mystery giver was extremely friggin generous!

I have no preference. It really does not matter to much to me. I guess we have to set some kind of boundaries.

If I feel like Santa, and you've been good throughout the year, then WATCH OUT! Top notch Grape White owls and I'll even throw in a pack of Dutch Masters!

Seriously now, it's the time of giving. A lot of people may not have a lot to give, but to me, it's really the thought that counts.

Base your gift not because of who you're giving to, but because it's what YOU would give to any member here on Amback.

Well put Doc. I think that is great, and I would even love to regift your fruit cake
