Happy new years eve to all and their pet sundries.
Just so no one gets anxious, stressed, fraught, confused or otherwise discombobulated I hereby out lay out the draw timetable for SITH 2023.
Cue drum roll.
We are in Sherwood forest in England and working on G.M.T.
So, allowing for the after effects of New year celebrations to subside we : Mrs.Zud and Zud, intend to make the draw at 3pm G.M.T.
Once the draw is filmed to completion Mrs.Zud (being the artistic tech wizard type) will forward it to Joe who will post it for all to see.
Using the awesome power of the interweb I find that Joe is on E.S.T. and 5 hours behind G.M.T.
So, allowing for the after effects of New year celebrations to subside, Joe could (in theory) post the video before we make it.
Or I'm just getting confused, or excited !
Either way I think this is the final call for SITH 2023.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
👍😁🍾🎉🎆

One more change from the last few years.  For a while we've been doing person 1 sends to person 2, person 2 sends to person 3...etc.
This year we'll just pair everyone up.  I know there are a few guys out there who prefer this method, so we'll go with it this year.  The drawing won't be any different, but the first and second slingers pulled out of the hat will send to each other.  The third and fourth slingers will send to each other, etc.  At the moment we have an even number, so it works out fine.

If there are any last minute entries (and we have an odd number), the last three names will become a trio.  It will be up to slingers in the trio to decide what to do.  They can each send a sling to one other member, or everyone in the trio can send a sling to both of the other members.  If that doesn't make sense we can go over it again if the situation arises.

Everyone have a happy and safe New Year!

Hey Joe,
I'm so glad you posted that because that is the way I was doing the draw. ! 😆😂🤣🤣🤣
The names are now written up and ready to go. If more names are added  ( not looking at anybody missing, Morphy, Jaegoor .......🥰) before the midnight GMT deadline I will simply add them in, the writing may be a little scrawly, but what the hell.
Otherwise, even allowing for a state of fuddlement, I should be able to make a job of it by 15.00GMT.
Cheers.
👍😁

And the SITH drawing is up!  Kudos to Zud for doing the drawing this year.  The list of participants in the first post of this topic 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!

Mine came in yesterday.  Thanks Zud!  For the sling and the extras!

I have your sling started.  But I'm an admittedly slow braider.  Your sling should be ready to go in a week or so.  I'll keep you posted.
