    Alright everyone, targets are going out now, please post hints, hauls, and trash talk in here. As a reminder, below are the requirements and timeline.

    The requirements:
    144oz of 85+ Rated beer, or 4.1+ rAvg if there are too few scores for a rating. Beer must be from outside your target's distribution. Extras and swag are encouraged but not required.

    The timeline: I'm going to lock down participation when we get to 30 total participants or on August 15th, whichever comes first. I will get targets out (hopefully) within a week after that point. Shipping window is currently planned for the month of September; any BIF newbies will be expected to ship by September 15th, veterans are permitted to ship up to September 30th.

    Next thing I'll post is a list of participants to help with hint tracking. Please note that no one is receiving from their own target, nor is anyone receiving from within their own state or a state that borders theirs.

    Now, let's get to the beer!

    Hint 1: I'm shipping West

    For any of you new guys out there, it's a good idea to go "want" some beers on here. Otherwise you may be at the mercy of your sender in regards to styles. Do you like sours? Stouts? Barleywines? Without some "Wants" your sender will have no idea.

    Hint 1: My box will probably be just wants. My target has a bunch and I am going to destroy them.
    (P.S.- everyone else check your wants. If it is on there, it is fair game.)

    Hint #1 - Shipping West.

    Content Hint - Pizza Boy will figure prominently in my box (as it always does), possibly Tired Hands as well. Going to South Carolina for vacation next week, if I can track down any goodies during my travels they may be included as well.

    Shipping east

    Sad we are limited to 240 oz. will we get in trouble if we go over?

    I don't think there is a limit. If there was I wouldn't abide by it anyways, and @LehighAce06 knows me well enough that he probably wouldn't expect me to either. :wink:
