    Targets are starting to go out tonight, so I figured I would start this thread up.

    As a reminder:

    Now for the rules:​
    - 4 glass minimum.​
    - MUST be stemware including mini-snifters unless specifically stated on wants sheet of recipient. Please try to make the glassware target specific. Any non-stemmed wants are considered part of the 4 original glasses.​
    - Must be brewery/brewpub-related, with preference to locals, or target's "wants list."
    - 6 glass maximum.​
    - Glasses 5-6 can be non-brewery, but still beer-related, e.g. beer bars, beer shops, etc.​
    - Shakers are allowable, but not encouraged.​
    - One piece of swag: brewery/beer-related apparel, signs, etc.​
    - If target does not specify t-shirt size, that means he/she prefers something other than a shirt (i.e. don't guess on shirt sizes).​
    - Other non-glass extras are at sender's discretion (no minimum or maximum): beer, coasters, bottle openers, koozies, stickers, misc.​
    -Glassware wants and got list is mandatory for this round. IF you cannot come up with one by the 16th, please sit out of this round.​
    Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions as to what qualifies as glassware, extras, etc.​
    The shipping window will be now until Monday the 20th of May.

    My target is really far west and I should be able to help him out with a few of his wants and hopefully some local stuff he will enjoy.

    If I did it correctly, everyone should have their targets. Let the GLASSWHALES™ start flying!

    Went to a brewery at lunch and knocked out one of my target's wants, have some feelers out on others with some trade partners in the regions necessary to get them.

    Should be able to hit 5+ of my targets wants without much effort at all. But I need to include some local flavor, so I need to plan the destruction of my target's wants list accordingly.

    Do mini snifters count as one? I think they should because they're awesome, but I also want to be able to send two and 5 other glasses.

    hannydawg Apr 4, 2010 Illinois

    They count as 1. You can always send mini snifters to me in a future trade though. ;)

    I'm shipping East, or is it West? Maybe I'm directionally challenged.

    I will be sending West....first time sending to this person, may have to get creative on my end as my targets list of wants is not to large!!! Though the positive is their gots list is not large either :)

    I think I have about 4 wants for my target. Gonna have to debate which glasses I use as #5 and #6. Also debating the swag I go after. I might actually not need the end of the shipping window this time. Hooray me!
