    I have 3 definites picked out for my target, two of which are wants. So NO ONE BUY ANYMORE GLASSES UNTIL THIS IS OVER. [/hypocrisy]
    I still have to put a little thought into the remainder of the glass and the swag, though my extras are coming along nicely. Probably looking to ship out early- to mid-May.

    I shipped today and UPS says it will arrive at my Target on Wednesday. Maybe should have sent Fedex.

    Up to 4 glasses for my target... 2 wants, and 2 glasses that should be wants :grinning: Grabbing the last two soon. Also, shipping to one of the three largest states in the US by population!

    I believe I have secured all six glasswales wants for my target. Today I will be picking up two beer wants for him from a brewery that only distributes to CA, OR, CO and PA. I have a lot of nice extra little stuff to throw in as well. Just have to get a t-shirt locked down and I will probably be sending out at the end of this coming week :slight_smile: Oddly enough, I don't think I will be sending a single local glass in this BIF but I thought hitting wants would be better than sending local stuff this time around.

    i'm not in the BIF, but just curious in general - on shirts, you don't want doubles...but you have breweries listed. capt lawrence, for example, sells a bunch of different shirts (i have 3 different ones). do you search out one per brewery only?

    Not necessarily one per, I do have 2 different Block 15 shirts and 2 different Tired Hands shirts. I just prefer getting shirts if possible from breweries I've been to but that I do not have a shirt from...that's how I came up with my "wants" for shirts. I'll have to take an updated pic of my "collection" tomorrow so those in this BIF can see exactly which shirts I have.

    i might have some unworn medium shirts that people sent me when i thought it would be a good motivator to get down to a medium. i'll check, if so...i will send them your way, should have at least one want in there.

    That's most of my shirt collection, the only difference now is I have a new Tired Hands shirt ("The Light that Spills..."), a Stoudt's shirt, an Upright Brewing shirt and a new Block 15 shirt ("Super Nebula"). I see that I also somehow missed putting my original Block 15 shirt in this picture...but through looking on their website I don't even think they sell it anymore.

    Also, I am pursuing one more thing for my target that I won't be able to get right away but I think it's worth the wait so I will be sending out slightly later but still well before the deadline :slight_smile:

    Picked up an extremely badass mini snifter for my target this weekend at DLD, and a shirt also. Just have to figure out which of the six glasses I already had to eliminate. Will ship east this week, have to recover from the weekend first though.

    Where were they selling these!? I asked two different employees if glassware was for sale and they both told me no :slight_frown:

    They have sold glassware at the intelligentsia tent each year for the past 4 years, but they sell out very quickly.

    From what I hear, there was no limit, so the eBayers got them first.

    I got to the booth soon after the gates opened. I purchased 6 (4 for friends, 1 for me, 1 for my target), but I saw many people buying cases of 12. Purely hearsay, but I heard 500 total glasses, and from what I remember, they lasted about an hour.

    I was told 500 also. the intelligentsia guy told me this the night before when I was at the pub for dinner.

    I got my one, but also did see the cases being bought

    In other news, I have all 6 pieces of glassware assembled. 2 wants, 2 sweet style wants and 2 others that I think my target will be happy with.

    As with the last round, I have no accumulated swag, but will pick up a little something that my target is unlikely to have

    Looks like my package will arrive Tuesday somewhere in the Heartland. It's a combo off old stuff and new stuff.

    Ahhh so a rookie mistake by me. I honestly didn't even know there was an Intelligentia tent in the first place. Well that sucks for me :slight_frown:

    I know it probably doesn't need to be said, but if my sender had a 3F mini snifter in the box for me, well that would just be the bees knees.

    Hint #2: My target, just like the last BIF, is located in a state where one of my least favorite NHL team plays.

    Updated my wants to include the new DLD mini Snifter...might as well join the hype train.

    My targets state is one I've never been to, is on the east coast, north of Washington DC.
