This is my second year participating, and it has occurred to me that I have no idea what "SITH" stands for. Can anyone please enlighten me?

Hmmm... I don’t know if I can trust Lariat man with such an important task Grin

If someone wants a hat like that, there’s a lot of places that can do it. Most of the merch sites online will do hats. All you need is the graphic.

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.

Cheers,

Samuel from Spain

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

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 Smiley

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 Smiley 

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 Smiley

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

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 Smiley

That said - get to it !

We have never met, but if we would, I guess the photo of that encounter would be one to remember  Grin
