I think we can figure it out fine for you to join Blindsquirrel.

I personally prefer the one to the next method rather than pairing, either way works though.

No worries, mr. Joe just drop me out to make it easier for the exchange, Iíll catch it the next time.

Sorry buddy.† That wasn't what I meant at all.

You make a really nice sling.† Request to be dropped from the SITH is denied.† Wink

Hereís an alternative solution: I will volunteer to exchange with two people to maintain balance if necessary.

No need to pai it was just a thought. The round robin works just fine.

Thanks for offering a second sling guys.  I don't think that would have been needed though.  An exchange group of three would have worked fine.

But IG said it's no problem, so we'll just go with the round robin method.  Then we don't need to worry about it.

So we'll call this one closed!  No volunteers to do the drawing, so I'm happy to take care of it.  I'll get things set up and do it tomorrow evening.

The drawing is done guys.† The video is linked in the first post of this topic, but I'll drop it here as well.† The order has also been updated in the first post.† Everyone is sending to the next person in the list.† If there's any confusion or questions, just let us know.

Also post a message if you're sending to someone who has already received a sling from you and you would prefer to send to someone else.† We can always move positions around if needed.

Drawing link: https://youtu.be/vhYMBwu2BlY

This also seems fitting to reuse, here were CA's tips for shipping last year:


so a couple of tips for sending international parcels.

1) never declare the actual value on the customs form. Most countries will charge import tax on anything much above £10 and they will charge you a 'fee' for the privilege of so doing.† So keep your values UNDER 10 euros/dollars/pounds.
1a) always tick the box for 'gift. There is a higher 'notax' limit on gifts than on commercial packages.

2) describe contents as: childs toy or shephrd sling.
Don't get creative - the last thing you want to do is to get the customs people interested enough to open the parcel. And while I know of no country where slings are illegal, it doesn't hurt to just make sure Smiley

3) if you want to pay extra for international tracking - it's usually not that much more (£2 extra in the uk).† DO NOT PAY FOR internationally signed for !
That is a lot more expensive and completely pointless.

Good tips Joe! I always follow C_A's sage advice and write "Dog toy" or "dog ball thrower". He said he never had any issues with it and so far, neither have I.

I also think more people will know what a dog ball throwers is than a shepherds sling (as sad as that is), so that is the other reason I do it.
