2011 Christmas Clearance Mission

Recommended Posts

Once again it's time to do the Christmas Clearance and Regifting Mission!!

 

This one has been a lot of fun in the past, and since I'm settled into a new place to live I think I can handle hosting it once again...

 

Here we go...

 

By now we all should be familiar with the concept, but I'll run through it anyway.

 

The Christmas Clearance and Regifting Mission is a chance to have some fun raiding the After Christmas Clearance Sales in search of that perfectly appropriate, strangely inappropriate, or just plain ridiculous gift for someone special(or random, as the cards may fall). If you sign up for this mission, you will receive a random name of one of the other participants and you will need to send them at least ONE Trackable(unactivated) Geocoin, as well as something you score in the After Christmas Clearance Sales(or something you received as a gift, and are passing along Example...Haha, anyone need a 2XL Men's Blue Polo Shirt?) The Clearance/Regifting item should have about the same value as a Geocoin($5-$12) as a starting point. If you choose to send additional items, that's up to you. I cannot take special assignment requests, and this is an INTERNATIONAL MISSION. If you are unable or unwilling to ship your package to anywhere on the globe, please do not sign up.

 

What you will need to send...

1. At least ONE Trackable(unactivated) Geocoin.

2. At least ONE additional Gift from the Christmas Clearance Sales or a Regift(in the $5-$12 range).

3. Whatever other fun you can come up with.

 

Information I need when you sign up...

1. Your prefered Email address

2. Your Geocaching name

3. Your Shipping name

4. Your COMPLETE Mailing address

5. Your Age and Gender(as specific as you want your sender to consider)

 

Any questions can be posted in this thread, and if you have requests about what to receive(allergies Etc.), you can discuss that here too, not in your sign up email. Please contact me through my Geocaching Profile to sign up.

 

Here's the timeline...

Sign up by December 25

Assignments sent by January 1

Send your package by January 31

 

After you sign up, please keep your status updated in this thread

MM/DD...Signed up

MM/DD...Received assignment

MM/DD...Package shipped

MM/DD...Received Package

 

Other random rules...

You may request up to TWO assignments for each person on your team,

Please do NOT send anything that cannot be discussed/displayed in these forums,

Consider the climate where your shipment is going when you choose your gifts.

I had a great time with this mission that I joined in the past. Sadly enough I can't join this one as I couldn't afford to send a nice package internationally. I will watch this thread though to see what great missions all you guys receive!! Thanks Robert for hosting it again!!

I'm in the same boat as LadyBee4T, am sorry to be missing out but will enjoy watching how everyone enjoys the mission. Thanks for hosting, Robert.

Time's up. I'll be sending emails to those who have signed up, going over the requirements, and later to send your assignment. Thanks everyone. A small field, but should still be fun.

Hey, WSR...I just sent you an email (not about this mission, but I wanted to make sure that you got it).

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

Ugh...everything I touch for the past two years gets behind schedule...completely my fault. I am working on this right now. everyone will have their assignments tonight. I hope that most of you have already chosen some gift items that are of a wide enough interest, since almost everything is gone from the stores by now. It looks like we have a small field this year...12 entries and two from me.

Everyone who signed up has been sent a confirmation note. I'll be mixing up the names now and sending assignments tonight. Thanks for your patience. I appologize for holding this ball so long. I really hope that the delay does not hinder anyone.

He loves especially the very cool Unity Dragon Coin and the Hot Wheels car (he likes when there is something written on the tires :) ). Thank you very much for this mission.

I have my package all packed up and will be sending it off tomorrow.

 

Yesterday I recieved a great package from Germany. It had some chocolates that the whole family enjoyed, a cool 6 function tool that my youngest has aquired minus the screw driver parts, a nice magnifier for seeing the detail on the coins that I love. It also had 3 great coins. An Atlantis coin, a Team yanagi coin whick I love and the most awesome coin I have ever gotten. A 1 of a kind Personal coin with a picture of my family on it which was taken atop Sentinal Dome in Yosemite National Park. That was a very nice thought and a Huge thank you goes to team yanagi for the thought that went into this package. Also a big thanks to WSR for setting the mission up.

I got a package in the mail today and I guess its from this mission. Not sure what their geonick is but it was from T. Briggs. In the envelope I got a Breast Cancer Travel Tag, a BOC Ladder 24 Blaze 132 GXProxy geocoin and a December 2011 pathtag. Thank you T. Briggs for the wonderful coins :D

 

Hopefully, I will send my recipient's package out tomorrow. Just need to get a box.

They sent a large magnifier with light; a roll of camoflage duct tape, a metal puzzle, macaw coin (TB4GB01) and a starfish buddy (TB4CPY3). Thank you very much. Going through the package was a little bit like going through a cache - full of great swag. :D

We go these coins and a cool box of 're-gifts' - it include two tree ornaments, a stash-bag, a 2006 School picture clock, a wrist-bead kit (my girls LOVED this one), and a few other items. Thanks for this... we had a GREAT time looking through it all.

No prob on the posting, just the USPS has been dragging lately. Like a regular ground shipped box from CT to Canada beating a card envelope to Minnesota. <_<:blink:
