    Hi Reef2Reefers!! We're excited to invite you to participate in the R2R Secret Santa gift exchange! This a great way for our members to spread some holiday cheer and as a bonus get to know each other little better.

    I mean lots of us have family and friends who just don't get this crazy hobby of ours, and let's face it, they're probably more likely to get you another pair of socks than that latest trinket for your reef hobby that you've been eyeing... ;) But this gift exchange will be different because it's FOR REEFERS BY REEFERS! This will be lots of fun for everyone!!

    Here is how it will work:
    • Members can sign up between now and December 1st.
    • Secret Santas will be assigned on December 2nd.
    • The total value of the gift must be at least $20.00. Please keep in mind that you may go above the minimum, but you may not receive the same in turn.
    • Buy or make gifts by 12/17/2018
    • Ship all gifts the week of 12/17/2018-12/21/2018
    • Delivery confirmation is mandatory and will need to be sent to @Santa Claus.
    • Everyone is welcome no matter where you live in the world. Just don't try to ship livestock cross-border.
    All R2R Secret Santa participants will receive a special SS banner under their username.

    To sign up, you will need to:
    1. PM @Santa Claus with your contact information (full name, email, and shipping address).
    2. Join our Secret Santa usergroup (CLICK HERE)
    3. Post in this thread with your answers to the questionnaire (see below) IN THIS THREAD (this is our official registration thread).
    Secret Santa Questionnaire:
    1. What is your shirt size?
    2. Would you be interested in receiving livestock? If yes, what would you be interested in? *disclaimer due to the busy holiday season we recommend not shipping livestock*
    3. What are your favorite foods or snacks? Any allergies or special considerations that need to be kept in mind?
    4. What is your gender?
    5. What are your hobbies or other interests?
    6. What is your favorite color?
    If shipping coral we ask that you notify us with when you would like 2 ship so we can notify recipient and make sure they will be able to take in. If recipient can't be there we will ask them for 2 other days and work out with sender. (We don't mind playing the go between here to keep it more a secret.)

    Also, notice that we have a special Secret Santa forum going on! Feel free to start other threads in here to talk about everything Secret Santa related, holiday related, or just anything you want to talk with all of us other SS peeps! Go wild! LOL

    6. What is your favorite color? Don't really have one...probably black if I could only pick 1. But red, blue, etc. are all good too.
