SUBMISSIONS CLOSED - 1Feb2016

ANNOUNCING

------ CoinPeople Short Snorter 2016 ------

 

 

Post your name here if you want to participate. Pick out one or 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 12,2016 (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 1,2016 and notes for the SS2016 must be in my hands by Feb 8,2016.

-You supply one or two notes to be signed and returned to you.
-Your forum name and SS2016 must appear on your note AND any protective sleeve you use.
-I suggest that low value notes 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 or equivalent
-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.

 

Each person who receives the package should notify both me and the next person on the list that they have received the notes. 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.

15/1Hello folks out there. Short snorters are really nice notes that you can keep in your collection as a reminder of the fun you have here and the friends you've made on the site. I cannot believe that no one has signed up for this fun project beyond George and myself and a few sockpuppets. (not disparaging sockpuppets in any way).

 

Here's a look at a series of short snorters from the past.

 

The link below will take you to a photography album of the 2004 CoinPeople Short Snorters.

So if you got a chance to look at the 2004 CoinPeople Short Snorters, you might enjoy looking at the 2006 CoinPeople Short Snorters.

It is I, LeSnipe. To be inclusioned in Snorters is of great honor to marionettes of the hosiery. Often in cruel disregard, LeSnipe and others are banned without the hearings. I, LeSnipe, have been Short Snorterer since the year 2009. Proudly I have been displaying Short Snorters of LeSnipe to all who enter the hosiery drawer.

As a continuation of a long-standing tradition here at CoinPeople, sockpuppets are welcomed in the Short Snorter program. We're honored to have them participate.

You need to be signed up by Feb 1 for the CP2016 Short Snorter. It'll be here before you know it. I've got my note picked out and ready to go.

The Short Snorter for 2016 is being cancelled. Very few signups and no notes received. Sorry about that. Maybe someone will do a 2017 Short Snorter or even pick up the project for later in 2016.

Sorry to hear that but I know I am part of the problem. Believe it or not, I did go to a coin shop and looked for notes. However, it was the first time in my 20 years of visiting there that they didn't have any notes out! I was prepared to send a note that means something special to me but I'm glad I don't have to send it now...

 

Thanks, Art, for taking the time with this.
