SITH - 2023
Nov 28th, 2023 at 10:28pm
 
It's SITH time!!!

Just a quick rundown in case any new members want to join.† The SITH (sling in the hat) is a sling exchange.† Any forum member is welcome to join.† We'll collect names for a month or so, and then do a drawing to see who is sending to who.† It's that simple!

There are a couple things that come up often so I'll bring attention to them right away.† There are members of the forum who send multiple slings or include extra gifts in the package.† This is in no way required.† Entering the SITH only requires you to send one sling to another member.† Anything extra is totally up to you!

And second, sometimes people don't want to join because they're worried the slings they make aren't good enough.† Please don't let that dissuade you, and dismiss the thought immediately.† We're all at different levels here and do things in different ways.† The SITH is not a contest.† What most people actually want is a sling like the one you personally use.† It's great to try out a (style of) sling that another member of the forum uses regularly.

So 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'm certainly in!
_____________________________________________________

***UPDATE***

And the SITH drawing is up!† Kudos to Zud for doing the drawing this year.† The list of participants below has been updated to the pairs.† As always, if anyone has already sent or received a sling from the partner they got and would like to swap, just let it be known in a comment.† There was a little mix up in the order, but we'll just go with the final order Zud shows in the video.
Happy SITH everyone!

I'm in! I have a bunch of "cheat code" (polysteel balearic with an Acroballistics release) thumb tab slings that I just made, so mine is ready to give away.

Nope, you're good!  We'll probably keep the list open for a couple weeks yet.

I humbly submit my entry.

I think we'll cut things off at the end of 2023.† So about a week and a half left to join if anyone else wants to get in on this year's SITH.

Something else I want to mention too.† I've done the drawing the last 2 or 3 years.† If anyone else wants to give it a go, just say so.† The chore...err, I mean the honor, is open to any volunteers.† Wink
And if you don't have a channel on YouTube, we can just make arrangements for me to get the video file from you and I'll be happy to post it.† Or I'm happy to just do it again too.

Hope everyone is having a Happy Solstice!

Hey Joe,
I am happy to volunteer to do the sith draw.

I don't do ewe toob but I have arranged technical support in the shape of Mrs. Zud to do the filming and forward it to you.

As there are only 10 names in the hat I would like at least 2 more so we get (at least) a nice round dozen.
I will post to that effect in general and other.

Cheers

Zud

👍😁

Thanks for doing the drawing this year Zud!  I don't mind doing it, but it will be nice to see someone else. Thumbs Up
