    Just a reminder, since boxes are starting to ship, don't forget to include a note
    with your BA name in the box.
    The voice of experience as I've forgotten more often than I've remembered.

    Down to 11. Hard for most to eliminate KevSal (CA) when his only hint so far is that he's shipping east.... I have a few that are strong possibilities, but I have a feeling it'll come down to the end on this one.

    Hint 1: Shipping east
    Hint 2: My target has way more trading experience then me.
    Hint 3: My target has posted in this thread.
    Hint 4: My targets shirt size is smaller then XXL
    Hint 5: My targets state does not get fifty fifty distro.
    Hint 6: My targets state does not get distro from AleSmith, lucky for you the brewery is 10 min away from me.
    Hint 7: My targets state does not get distro from Ironfist.
    Hint 8: Lost abbey doesnt seem to make its way to my targets state either. Maybe a bottle of angels share is in order.

    I think I have it down to 6 senders now after going back and reading some hints again.

    Agreed. Hope some of these people didn't forget they are in a BIF, or just hoping to build their cellar by being in it.

    I just went back through every clue, I think I've narrowed it to 3 (again, probably wrong).

    48.75% chance my shipper is in IL
    48.75% chance my shipper is in CT
    2.5% chance my shipper is in TX

    Hint#2: My target has posted more than I have in this thread.
    Hint#3: My targets State doesnt touch an Ocean.
    Hint#4: I have never traded with or been in a BIF with my target before.

    Sorry about my lack of participation so far, an unseen event kept me busy for a bit. I should be good now though.
