    Would really like one of these three remaining, or all three, confirm ASAP so I can finalize and get targets together. It'll take me forever, because I'll use your posting profile, send it to a forensic pathologist, create fictitious Match.com/Christianmingle.com/Diapermates.com/pounced.com/seniorpeoplemeet.com/Gcruise.com etc. accounts, and you will all 'virtually' fornicate until the proper pairing is selected. That or I'll just try to mix up distribution, whatever is easier.

    Either way.... get your shit together Martin/Fishy/JohnnyRotten, and get back at me.

    I'm out, couldnt find a partner, see the last half of page two.

    I'll just be the clubhouse bitch. I'm an expert at stripping wax, buffing and shining shoes, and I have an assortment of fine chamois.

    That completely sucks. Its going to come down to who can find a partner faster, Martin or Johnny on the spot.

    Spring is awfully far from us as well. The outside temp this morning was 13* when I woke up this morning. Great week for our furnace to go out.

    When I was your age, I'd lug 50lbs of ice. Up five, six flights of stairs!

    EVERYONE SEND ME ONE MESSAGE WITH CONTACT INFO AND SHIRT SIZE FOR BOTH MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM.

    Please don't send me a message with just your info, my in-box thanks you.


    I'll send all of your info and dirty little secrets to your shipper when we assign targets.....

    Random.org did a pretty good job, and those that it didn't work out too well for "NJ to NJ for instance" I swapped around positions, and it worked out great.

    16 teams, 1 sending to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4, etc, until 16 sends to #1. Random.org set the order, I swapped out the Jersey > Jersey (although I know how you Jersey guys like to keep it in the family) and it looks all good.

    The "spread" isn't that great.... I wish I could get 3+ states of separation between everyone, but given the crazy amount of New England representation we have, some people are going to have to get creative to fill out the boxes. REMEMBER, Draft-only growlers/ 1/2 growlers etc. are good for some categories etc.... and you can go out of your state/region/country for some of the other ones.

    I'm sure if everyone tries to send a box they'd like to receive, then we won't have any issues.

    Don't forget about our box full of rubber cocks that the 'winner' will get as a bonus, so start planning. I'll get everyone their Target in the next hour or so (even if I don't have their shipping info yet, so you'll at least be able to look at wants, figure out distro, etc)

    Shotgun start.... you know the shipping window, forecast looks good......

    Awesome. This BIF will be incredible, can't wait. We got our target!

    First hint: BOTH (!!) of the members we're sending to are huge fans of beer. Incredible.

    Bless this ship, and all that sail on her.
