    Hey, everyone should have gotten their target. If you didn't, please let me know. The first time I had one that didn't send and was just sitting in the message waiting...

    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).

    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 about.

    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've had a few 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 upload a picture to our thread after you receive your box.

    Deadline to ship will be Monday, March 4.

    For my LIF, my wife and I have been married since September 2012, which as of the turn of the year is 75 months by my calculations. We didn't go to a tie-breaker, but for the record we went to Iceland and visited Reykjavik. With a guess of 67 months and off by 8, the winner is @Vidblain. He asked that if he won, I forward it on to @brutalfarce. Will - please shoot me your sending info along with any beer styles you don't like. I'll most likely get a box out to you at the beginning of next week.

    Hint #1- I checked in a beer on UT while in my targets home state in the last year

    And if anyone uses UT to check in I’m Jslip . I sent out some new friend requests but still need some more of you. I want to send my target new beers/iso beers and it’s so much easier to check on UT vs here

    Just received a box from winning @Yabey's LIF from the sign up thread.



    Cigar City - Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout
    Funky Buddha - BBA Morning Wood
    Funky Buddha - BBA Last Buffalo in the Park
    Box of Mac and Cheese

    These are my first Funky Buddha beers, both of which were on my wish list. Thanks, for the awesome box, Alejandro.
