Here is a list of the rules, altered to reflect the VTX Cafe name:
1 - There is no signup by email, PM, smoke signals, carrier pigeon, or mental telepathy. If you'd like to participate, sign up on this thread. That way, I don't miss anybody. Those of you who signed up early and are on the list are grandfathered in.
2 - By participating, you agree to send a shirt to another VTX Cafe member. Somebody will send you a shirt in return. This may or may not be the same person you are sending a shirt to.
3 - You need to have been active here for a while to participate in this. If you just now signed up on VTX Cafe and found this thread, perhaps you should sit this one out until you get to know us better. Questions? Contact me.
4 - Shirt guidelines are explained below. You can deviate from them, but only if you set things up with your recipient in advance. Check with your recipient after the names are drawn to see what they would prefer.
5 - Shirt guidelines: Shirts must be motorcycle-themed, and should be something that reflects your local area. A shirt from your local independent, chopper shop, biker hangout, or such would be ideal. Generic Harley shirts are considered in poor taste. Franchised, licensed, mass-marketed shirts with logos from Orange County Choppers, West Coast Choppers, and the like are in really poor taste. Support your local businesses.
6 - This is a holiday thing, y'all. Please make every effort to find a suitable shirt for your recipient, and get it mailed in time to arrive by December 25th. Failing that, please let them know you're gonna run a little late. Names will be announced by November 25th, to allow plenty of time.
7 - You have to post an acknowledgement on the board when you recieve your shirt. Pictures would be appreciated, too. I am keeping track of who's naughty or nice.
8 - There will be a 'deadbeat list' posted in early January with the name of anybody who didn't follow through. You don't want to be on it.
I participated in this last year on the IA Cafe site and it turned out pretty good, they have been doing it for awhile now. Duuno who wold be in charge of it, I would think a moderator would be a best bet. I can help out if needed, but really dont want the responsibility of it all as I dont have much free time.
