Yeah go on then, my record for things sent has improved this year, and if Morphy's going for my longest delayed sith delivery crown - he's got a year or so to go I think - si why not. Smiley

Got some interesting toys to send out.

Now I will point out that international postage costs are at an all time high.

So if money's short, avoid tracked and try and keep your total parcel under 100 grams.

Anyone got a date for last entries ?

How about one month for entries?  That would put us at a close date of 18 December.  I think that will allow a sufficient amount of time for folks who don't check in on the forum very often.

I'll also update the first post with the current list and try to keep it updated.

@SAK_Survival - It's all good man. Everyone started out from the beginning.

I can only speak personally, but I would seriously doubt I'm unique in this point of view. In the SITH, it's not so important to send the fanciest and most beautiful sling (not that there's anything wrong with those). What I like is to get is a sling that's close to what the sender likes to use. I saw in the Introduction that you've been trying out a few designs. Whichever one you find yourself liking the best, make one for your SITH recipient and they will enjoy it. Wink

Sound advice Thumbs Up

The sheer variety of slings that get sent is also one of the joys of the sith.

I've had everything from a simple split pouch 3 strand braid made from masons line, all the way up to Tomas amazing parcel, that had a much admired leather catal hyuk coaster an all leather sling and a really decorative leather pouch sling with paracord.

The important thing is to send a sling that you have personally made.

There is no obligation to send anything more than one sling.

Some of us tend to get a bit carried away.
If you received a multi gift package last year, do not feel you have to do the same this year.

It's purely personal choice Smiley
The only obligation is a sling you've made yourself.
Please do not feel any pressure to send anything else Smiley

I echo the above. I always find it fascinating that such a simple weapon can vary so greatly. The style, the materials (I even have a glow in the dark paracord sling), the methods of construction... I always learn something from a new sling.

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!

Throw me into SITH mix and I'll come up with something with a Canadian twist.
