I think pairs would be better this year. Last year was the chain. Need to change it up a bit

This is my first year to participate, but my vote is for the chain. If you do a straight trade, there’s a natural social pressure to match the quality of whoever you trade with and different styles and skill levels may or may not match up well.

“My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler

@Ca, give him 2 days and then maybe you should draw it.

@kicktheotter If you need something to display glandes in I recommend these, these are what I use for my two and they work great: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N8SUUDH?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title

I remember you posting about them before and I did get some actually but I used them for my insect collection. I have a number of insects in resin and they do work great for that. I might well get some more for the glandes but I'm also running out of space to display things...

I just happen to have the ideal hat to accommodate everyone's names.  I am honored to draw the names.

My vote is for pairs. 

Here is our list - if I missed someone, my apologies and please bring it to my attention:

Blue Raja - CO, USA
KicktheOtter - Finland
VetRyan - ME, USA
Mersa - Australia
Curious Ardvark - Midlands, UK
Hubert - Oschersleban, DE
Willem208 - South Africa
Joe_meadmake - PA, USA
Walter (none stated)
Tint - Hong Kong
Lobohunter - OR, USA
Frondeur - France
Drakolith - USA
NooneOfConsequence - TX, USA
DavidtheSlinger - USA
Timothy Potter, ID, USA
Woodssj (none stated)
JudoP - Midlands, UK
Sarosh (none stated)
Shale - Canada
Slingingrat - MD, USA
Dan -  WA, USA
Loki - CA, USA
Samuel - Leon, Spain
Dirty Duck - WA, USA
Christian (Funditor), Austria

I count 26 slingers - so pairs will work if that is the consensus.

I think pairs for when even numbers, and chain when it's odd. So depends on the year, when will the drawing take place?

I like the pairs idea too.  I definitely see the point that NooneOfConsequence brought up.  But I don't have the impression that anyone in this group will be upset with any sling they receive.

One final check - have I missed anyone?

Blue Raja - CO, USA
KicktheOtter - Finland
VetRyan - ME, USA
Mersa - Australia
Curious Ardvark - Midlands, UK
Hubert - Oschersleban, DE
Willem208 - South Africa
Joe_meadmake - PA, USA
Walter (none stated)
Tint - Hong Kong
Lobohunter - OR, USA
Frondeur - France
Drakolith - USA
NooneOfConsequence - TX, USA
DavidtheSlinger - USA

Sarosh (none stated)
Shale - Canada
Slingingrat - MD, USA
Dan -  WA, USA
Loki - CA, USA
Samuel - Leon, Spain
Dirty Duck - WA, USA

Unless someone wants to suggest another method, I plan on an old school approach.  I will prepare individual name slips and put them in a paper bag, shake them up and draw them out one at a time, making pairs as I go.

I’m not really worried about it with this group... my family’s not involved Grin
