Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen of BA... The reason for this communication is to bring you a special announcement: The first day of spring is approaching us soon. Some places in the great white north are going back and forth from cold to warm and then back again. The weather seems to be teasing that of an early spring. A beautiful day this week struck me with all the sights and smells that spring was around the corner and what is the best part about it? THE CANBIF SPRING 2018 BEER TRADE! This is an opportunity to be part of a great experience like no other for those new to trading/CANBIF and those returning alike. Below are the rules/details of how we intend to proceed: - Registration starts now and will end at midnight on Sunday, April 15th. - Please start a conversation with me, Electros, here on BA mail detailing your full name, address with postal code, phone number, email, and if/who are your regular trading partners here on BA. I have retained all information on the last round and will make it my mission that returning participants will be paired with someone different then the province from the fall 2017 round. - Target information will then be organized and sent out no later then Wednesday , April 18th. - You must be willing to send out during the shipping window starting on Thursday, April 18th to Sunday May, 6th (weather permitting). - Participants are expected to fill a 12 slot box. Their is no max oz levels for boxes sent. At least half of the bottles should be local. The rest can be an assortment of US/other provinces. - Participants who have never traded through mail I would advise buying a 12 slot styro shipper which can be purchased online or at a local U-haul. - Swag is optional and always appreciated. - Here is some organizational information for new and returning participants on how Canbif works in regards to targets. The person you will be sending a box to will not be same person that is sending you a box back. Thus it makes it a surprise as to who and from where you'll get your box of brews. Please refrain from contacting your target. I encourage anyone interested who is new to Canbif to search out previous rounds to get a feel of what to expect throughout each stage. It will paint a great picture of all the fun that is Canbif. Any questions or concerns that arise please don't hesitate to contact me at any time or stage throughout Canbif. Let's get it on!
