Title: SITH 2019?
Post by vetryan15 on Nov 3rd, 2019 at 5:41am
I think its time to start getting this started. Never too early.  I think the drawing should get done on December 1st, as this will get more people to see it, and hopefully participate.  But for the record i would like CA Tto do the drawing.

I am in

I'm definitely in and yeah it's probably good to start it soon just because it always ends up that someone is getting there SITH in June :D

Well if that unnamed person wanted to come back and finish 2018ís SITH, I wouldnít mind, but I also wouldíve given the sling I sent for free, so letís just focus on the next one and not dwell on the past. There may be a good reason he disappeared, and from that perspective I just hope everything is ok.

I would like to participate as well. So far I have received a cool dyneema sling from Mersa and a beautiful Tibetean-style sling from Funditor. I can't wait to see what the SITH brings me this this year!

Hi, I know the SITH is already closed. But if somebody is late like I am, I'll be happy to exchange a sling with him/her (guess will be him).
Anyone let me know.

Post by Curious Aardvark on Dec 9th, 2019 at 6:37am
no problem - it's not closed till it's been drawn - so you're in the draw :-)
And we can add spain to the list of countries !

kick

mersa

joe-meadmaker

funditor

nononeofconsequence

hubert

worldwalker

the mighty aslan

thejackinati

lobohunter

shale

judop


I'll do the: 1st sends to 2nd who sends to 3rd etc. Last sends to 1st :-)
More later when I've drawn and had a look to check we've got no obvious duplicates from the last couple of years :-)

Title: Re: SITH 2019?

Iím not sure you need to worry about repeats. We can always trade trades after the initial drawing.

Title: Re: SITH 2019?
Post by Curious Aardvark on Dec 12th, 2019 at 9:37am
yeah - you all know who you sent to in the past.
So here's the initial 2019 sith draw order.

curious aardvark sends to† mersa

mersa sends to joe meadmaker

joe sends to lobohunter

lobo sends to teg (now that's an interesting match up :-)

teg sends to shale

shale sends to vetryan15

vetryan sends to judop

judop sends to the mighty aslan

the mighty aslan sends to hubert (lol)

hubert sends to samuel (lucky lad)

samuel sends to kick

kick sends to worldwalker

worldwalker sends to funditor

funditor sends to the jackinati

jackinati sends to willem208

willem208 sends to nooneofconsequence

And finally

noone of consequence sends to me (CA)

Anyone who's sent or received a sling to their partners in the past, let me know and we'll shift you around :-)†

Get in contact with your partners for relevant details.

Couple of tips for posting international items.
1) ALways make sure you select GIFT on the customs form.

2) Keep the stated customs value LOW - under 10: dollars, pounds.euros, sheckels etc. That way you avoid lumping your partner with a hefty import tax bill.

3) declare slings as: 'childs toy'.† Saves time and effort on behalf of the customs people :-)

4) do not feel you have to send your parcel by recorded delivery - or even air mail. I won't be :-).

Whatever the cheapest option is will be fine. I've been sending things around the world for a couple of decades and have yet to lose a single package. International Post is generally pretty reliable.

There are a total of TEN Countries involved in the sith this year.
So postage times will vary quite a lot.† ††

You are of course at liberty to include things other than slings in your parcels. But please DO NOT feel obligated to do so.
A sling is all you NEED to send, and all that should be expected.

Be amazed if you get something extra - but don't be disappointed if you just get a sling :-)

That said - get to it !

Title: Re: SITH 2019?
Post by Curious Aardvark on Dec 12th, 2019 at 9:54am

Hubert aka Uwe Pelzer is one of - if not the - best sling makers in the world !
His slings retail for 60-70 euros.
Often include 16 strand braids and are usually works of art as well as very functional slings.

You are indeed 'a lucky lad' :-)

Well, Curious Aardvark, I got my sling today from hubert and you were totally right. It is the best one I've ever hold in my hands. I'm looking forward to try it out once the weather gets better here, but I can tell you that the whip-like crack that makes when using it is awsome.

And I got a gland!!! ;D

Best Christmas present, thank you hubert.

Likewise I havenít heard anything from Willem yet. I know he doesnít get on here that often, but Iím hoping to hear from him soon.  In the two years Ive participated, Iíve mailed two SITH slings and received none so far. If I donít hear from willem soon, I might volunteer to take yours Joe.

I am going to send mine out soon as I have made it. I just got home from holidays yesterday. I also have not heard anything from The Jackinatti. :)

So few things are as exciting as getting a small package marked "childs toy" during the SITH-mas season.
Thanks Mersa! :D

I finished the sling on Christmas day, and mailed it out yesterday. I hope you like it, funditor!

Likewise I havenít heard anything from Willem yet. I know he doesnít get on here that often, but Iím hoping to hear from him soon.† In the two years Ive participated, Iíve mailed two SITH slings and received none so far. If I donít hear from willem soon, I might volunteer to take yours Joe.

If you end up not getting a sling, I would be glad to send you one (or one to make up for previous years, even). I enjoy making slings, and am happy to have an excuse to make another. ;D PM me if interested.

well as far as time frames go.
I'm usually late sending things out - :-)
I try and aim to get it there before easter and the guiltier you feel, the more you tend to put in the package - so the late one's are invariably worth waiting for :whistle:

The latest one I've received was from tomas and arrived in july (I think).
was worth the wait though :-) :thumb:

So as with learning to sling - patience is your guiding principle here.

Lobo is a man of his word - but an eclectic individual :-)
You'll get it - but be patient :-)

Well...  it didn't take too much impatience here. Willem PMíd me. I canít wait to see what he comes up with :)

@CA - Thanks for the input.† I'm shipping to lobohunter, so patience is no problem.† Although the sling I have to send to him came out pretty nice, so there is the temptation to use it. ;)

I believe I'm the first recipient of this year's SITH as I got very lucky with UK to UK delivery, thanks JudoP! this is my first balearic type sling and definitely the nicest sling I own. Had a few practice throws with it and it cracks like thunder, really nice craftsmanship. Especially with the stitched thumb ring. Really really impressed

Two slings have now arrived! Thanks Samuel for the slings and the letter. You say in the letter you made two to make up for the "poor style" but they look like damn fine slings to me :D I was all set to go out slinging this morning but I've got a bit of a cold and it's been raining all day so I had to put it off. I'll get some pictures up soon hopefully (looks like I'll be likely be having the day off work if I'm feeling this crappy tomorrow) and try them out as soon as I can. Thanks again!

Thanks Aslan, I'm glad you like it! It's actually technically an apache sling but it does have a lot of balearic inspired elements

I got mine this morning too from vetryan. A whole 5 slings!

2 seatbelts
a flat moosehide pouch with jute cords
a boat(?) mooshide pouch with jute cords
a jute rockman

Not to mention this lovely moose hide which I will put to good use!

Didn't even realise joe got his sling , last year it took over 7weeks from postage to arrival this year Australia post got it there in just over 2 , this may go down as the fastest package I've ever seen through Australia post.

Post by TheJackinati on Jan 13th, 2020 at 3:05am
Wow, Australia post actually managed to quickly deliver something. Key word, quickly. I'm impressed.

Did you sacrifice a few virgin's this year, Mersa :P

Hey everyone just seeing how many of you have sent/received your SITH.

I received mine.

I did hear from lobohunter and sent his out, but there was a problem with the address and UPS delivered it back to me.† I sent him a message and am waiting to hear back from him.

Haven't been able to ship mine out yet, hopefully on Monday fingers crossed.

Haven't received mine either, but I'll gladly wait.

I made a little video with the sling I got from Mersa in this year's SITH.† Great fun.† Although I would prefer a projectile with a little more weight.† I have something ordered that may take care of that.† More on that later.† Enjoy.

I love the shirt... It's perfect for the Sith, if you catch my meaning! ;D

Nice 👍 , glad that youíre able to use it , it will love heavies, lead sinkers will do great. Hopefully itís easy enough to slip on your key chain? You never know when it will come in to use.

Got that familiar release sound!!
