    And the fun begins. I'm going to start sending out everyone their targets. I'm going to do this as quickly as possible, but if you don't get one right away, don't worry. I'll post again in here when everyone should have their target.

    Here are the rules again.

    Rules
    Minimum 100 ounces and maximum of 144 ounces of beer that is out of your target’s distribution area (seekabrew.com is helpful and often times just doing a search on the brewery can help). Please keep these is mind for this BIF.

    Also keep in mind your target’s wants and style preferences along with freshness of any hoppy beer. Don’t just send the last couple IPAs from your fridge if they are a couple months old. Basically, send a box you’d be excited to receive. This is your chance to not only send a great box but show off those local breweries that others may not have heard of.

    You will also be expected to give at least five clues as to who your target is. I want everyone to stay engaged in this. If you want example of clues, I’d recommend visiting any of the “Hints and Hauls” threads in this forum. I can also help if you want to send a message.

    One last rule I want to add as we had a couple last round struggle with this. Please communicate. Let me/everyone know if you are going to be away and either can’t receive boxes or won’t be sending clues/participating for a few days. Remember that your sender is putting some time/thought into your box, so make sure you send a picture.

    Deadline to ship will be Monday, October 15. This will give everyone just over a month to be able to find beers and also budget for the box. It should also hopefully be good weather-wise.

    I had to send a make good box to complete a trade. I have two beers that didn't make it in. My target might get one of them. Or not.

    Hey, so everyone should know their target. Let me know if you didn't get a message as last time I had one that stuck in the reply box but didn't send.

    My first hint is that I'm sending east.

    seems like no-one is sending to @beertunes =p

    Hint #1: target lives to the east of me
    Haul Hint #1: Recently did a trip to another region of my state (not where I'm from), and visited 3 of my favorite breweries, at least one beer will be from this trip.

    Also, for anyone sending me a box, I do have a small blackout window: September 23rd-25th. Otherwise any day there will be someone around to get any boxes
