Hi Reef2Reefers!! We're excited to invite you to participate in the R2R Secret Santa 2019 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 November 24th.
  • Secret Santas will be assigned on November 25th.
  • 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 12/14/2019
  • Ship all gifts the week of 12/14/2018-12/21/2019
  • Delivery confirmation is mandatory and will need to be sent to @Santa Claus.
  • Due to issues with shipping internationally, we need to make our participants outside the USA aware that if we don't have any other participants from your region or country, you may be matched with someone of a different region/country. As long as you are ok with that, you are welcome to join in the fun! (Feel free to PM Santa with any questions.)
All R2R Secret Santa participants will receive a special SS banner under their username.

Sign up is closed to any new registrations for this year for anyone who hasn't already posted in this thread or contacted me. I'm working right now on getting everything set to draw names!

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

I have sent my PM to Santa and submitted my request to join the usergroup. I'll post my answers to the questionnaire soon - I'm really hoping to not get coal again this year!

It won't let me PM. Says it doesn't recognize the name @Santa Claus. Am I doing something wrong?

I don't think you need to enter the "@". Just type "Santa Claus" (or click on the link in the original post and it should auto populate).
