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.

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:
  • 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.

Beautiful idea.† The post name has been updated.

Your name has been added to the list. Thumbs Up

Let's give this another week or so.† Let me know if there are any objections to a cutoff date of December 17th.† If not, that will be our last day for entries.

Last call everyone.  If anyone else wants to join, let us know.  We'll cut things off tomorrow.

Also let us all know if anyone wants to do the video of the drawing.  If no one else does, I have no problem doing it again.

What does everyone think instead of a round-robin sort of trade, just draw names for pairs, and then exchange with the same person you get one from?

I don't have any objection to this.† Although with the addition of Blind Squirrel, we're at an odd number.† Which is fine.† Just means we'll have one group of three if we don't get any more last minute participants.
