Short Snorter 2015 Cancelled - 2016 Coming

Recommended Posts

ANNOUNCING
------ CoinPeople Short Snorter 2015 ------

 

Post your name here if you want to participate. Pick out two great notes and be ready to mail them to me. I'm planning to mail the packages of notes to the second signer February 10,2015. (I know that sounds a long way off but, trust me, in things like this there will still be people who miss the deadline.) All signups done by Feb 1,2015 and notes for the SS2015 must be in my hands by Feb 8,2015.

-You supply two notes to be signed and returned to you.
-Your forum name and SS2015 must appear on your note and any protective sleeve you use.
-Only low value notes should be used. Things do get lost.
-Each participant agrees to hold the notes for no more than 4 days.
-Each participant agrees to send the notes to the next person on the list via USPS Priority Mail - Insured (or the European, Canadian, whatever, equivalent)
-The parcel is to be insured for $50.00 US
-Participants will post in the tracking thread when they received the notes and when they send them on to the next person
-Notes may be contained in a protective sleeve.
-Notes must be a size that allows note and any protective sleeve to fit in a business letter envelope. (#10)
-Each person is responsible to handle the notes carefully to avoid damage and or loss.
-Two notes per CoinPeople id.

 

A second package of notes will be created and will follow the same mail route as the first but will be mailed approximately one week after the first. Each person who receives the package should notify both me and the next person on the list that they have received the notes. Only when package #1 has been received should package #2 be mailed. Please keep the notifications going as the ability to track progress is quite important to all of the particpants. 

OK enough rules. Let's go. Signup here. I'll PM mailing instructions to each person.

** IMPORTANT**

****Your vote is needed****

 

 

For those of you who have signed up so far. A new slant on the process. Please copy this post and add your approval or disapproval so I can know if it's ok to go ahead with it.

 

Assuming that both signed sets of notes make their way back to me, each of you will have two CPSS2015 notes. I was thinking of doing a random selection process so that you would get one of your original notes plus one of someone else's notes returned to you. Sort of a surprise collection addition. Thoughts and positions please.

In! Might take a little longer than 4 days when I'm away for the week on work but that is going to be rarer going forward.

Don't worry about it. We'll coordinate with folks schedules as best we can.

Please don't send your notes. This project is on hold for an indeterminate period. Family things prevent me from doing it right now.

Good morning gang! I am so sorry that I let this drop for 2015 but I would really like to make a 2016 Short Snorter happen. I'll be posting a signup and procedures thread in the next few days. So start picking those notes. (picking notes!!!)

I'm thinking about the double send thing. It's a great safety measure but it's hard just to get folks to handle one package let alone two.

If we do tracking or something at least it shouldn't be an issue for one package I'd imagine?

 

Just reread the original thread, derp. Nevermind, haha.

 

I don't think with the insurance and tracking that is required we will have much of an issue with just one. Have you ever come across problems doing this before?

Yes. Nothing that resulted in permanent loss on Short Snorters but other such items have gone completely missing. I'm thinking single package probably this time and we'll see what happens.

So remind me - all the notes arrive at a location at the same time? like... I'll get a package with 10 notes I need to sign and will send it off to the next person?

That's correct. I get them last and send them back to their owners.

Yes. I'll post the whole process before the end of December so everyone can get a start over the holidays.
