Title: SITH - 2022
Post by joe_meadmaker on Nov 14th, 2022 at 10:25am
It's that time of year!† The forum seems a little quiet these days, so we'll see what kind of response this gets.

Just a quick rundown in case any new members want to join.† The SITH (sling in the hat) is a sling exchange.† Anyone is free to join.† We'll collect names for a month or so, and then do a drawing to see who is sending to who.† You will send a sling to a member of the forum, and receive a sling from another member.† It's that easy!

Who's in for the SITH this year?!† Drop a comment saying you want in and your name will be added to the list.

I think we usually leave it open for about a month.  But there's not a lot of activity around here right now.  I'm fine if with closing things early if anyone wants to.  Maybe one more week?  Close things off on 27 Nov?

Iíd like to propose an idea.

In sight of recent events with the loss of the most important person of slinging.org.
Could we somehow make this years SITH an all in to CA.
Im thinking perhaps a collection of slings from our members as a memorial.
Perhaps given to the family or close friend, or even another forum member to have? (Thinking Morningstar as a uk and og)

No pressure if im taking this in the wrong direction just voicing my thoughts.
Iíve spent the day at work feeling slightly off about the whole situation, I wasnít expecting it and also wasnít expecting feeling so strongly.

I think that is a fitting parting gift. At least to let his family know that he made quite the impact on this small community.  It only works if we can get someone to deliver the batch all together though.

I agree with this.


The other thing I'm worried about is timing.† How quickly would we need to organize something like this, and how quickly could we actually carry it out?† If we go with the 'tribute to CA' route, I think motivations will be different, but getting SITH slings sent out in a timely manner always seemed to be the exception rather than the rule.† I don't mean we shouldn't do it.† Just putting the thought out there.

Another thing I think about is what would CA's reaction be?† Part of me thinks he would tell us to send the slings to each other and use them.

I like your idea though Mersa.† If we can get it organized, I'm in.

Maybe some sort of 21 gun salute with your SITH slings would be fitting. Though again the logistics are difficult given how late the slings typically arrive, and people would also need to find a place to catapult rocks a good distance. I do tend to think CA would probably want us to continue the trade, but even so we should find something to do to commemerate his passing and his impact on the sport. It would also be nice to send something to his family to show them how much he meant.

Great idea!!!

I made his sling I owed him from last SITH (the day he died weirdly).

Itís here and ready to goÖ

I imagine everyone is open to the idea of sending this year's slings to CA's family.† But a decision will need to be made if that's what we're going to do.† A few things I think we'll need to decide on if we go that route:
[list bull-blackball]
  • Someone to take point on the task to coordinate everything.
  • Someone will need to be the middle man to receive everything.† I think this will best be done by someone in the UK (easiest to send things on from there).
  • And someone to figure out how to contact his family and find out where to send things (this could also be done by either of the previous two people).

    I'm completely open to hear thoughts either way.† Personally I think CA would want us to send the slings to each other and use them.

    I would absolutely be game to try to figure out some version of a 21 gun salute as JudoP mentioned.† We could do that with SITH slings, or do it right away with slings we already have.† The best option with that might be for everyone to record their throw (and maybe a short message to CA and/or his family), and send all the videos to someone to cut together and post on YT.† I'm open to other thoughts.  Kind of like Mersa mentioned, I think we should do something, just not sure what.
