Ed, since you were so generous on the #1 box I'd love if you could act as a judge on this one.
Meanwhile, I'm off to C21 et al to pick up some ties. Stay tunes for the "tie Boxes" thread where I document a stalking uhoh.gif

You missed me? if that was an intentional ignore that's fine, just let me know. redface.gif

The tie pics in this thread should be public.
I'm burnt out from my involvement with box 1 & 2. So I think I'm going to pass on this swap and wait for someone to start a virtual box thread.

I believe the idea behind the pics being private is it prevents people from stepping out of turn and directly contacting the person in front of them to grab ties they want.

That's what the judges are for. Janky tie dudes won't even make it into the swap.

Just fresh from C21 and I saw a whole section of medusas. Was tempted to call you.

That said, I scoured the store for so long I swear I was being followed. I picked out what I would personally wear and also (based on the CBD & the WAYWRN threads) what I thought other members would wear. Unfortunately out of like a million ties, these are the only ones I found to be koppable. Squares leave more room for flash...

Dropped some coin on these. After seeing what they had I didn't want to visit the other stores nearby but will continue shopping until we have a full list. If we don't get a sponsor for the prize I will personally either supply a tie & square or a gift card.

Thanks

If need be, yes.

I'll leave that up to the participants.

I'm going to wrap up the entry list this Sunday night and whatever number we fall at will be it. Hopefully I will have received all of the pics by then and will have confirmed judges so we can get this thing underway.

Thanks for playing.

We kicked around the idea of having all participants send their entries to one central location, then have the box just sent around. Don't know if you would consider something like that here, might make your life easier.

Do you need pics from me, or are you fairly confident that I don't roll Jerry Garcia?

The only problem I see with that is getting peeps to actually send the ties/having someone hold up the grand send-off and the additional shipping cost they would incur.

Part of the reason for the PM pics is so members can't flake with what they put in once they get the box.

And yes, please PM me pics of the ties you wish to submit smile.gif
