When I did a secret mom thing, we e-mail the person in charge and she in turn gave us a survey type to fill out. Then she matched us up with other people.

It doesn't matter to me, if we get to pick or not.. its still going to be a surprise as to who has us.

Oh! This sounds like fun I want to join in!
There should be something that we keep a list of those who said they would and didn't. Unless they contacted the organizer before.

When I organized this last year this is what I did:

* I kept a list of everyone who was participating, and their country.
* I matched up each person within their country, at least I tried.
* I emailed each person their buddy, and I think I may have even put together a questionnaire for them to fill out and exchange info with.

I thought this was a good way to do it, seens how addresses were only swapped with the people who would be sending gifts to each other.

So first and foremost you all need to decide on one person to be running the show, then set a date for a cut off (cannot accept anymore people after so and so date), then set a date for the gifts to be sent out.

I think last year I started this in sept or maybe oct? I know it was early. I wanted to give everyone ample time to sign up and shop for their partners. I do believe that the date to send gifts was early dec. Again, I wanted to give ample time for the gifts to arrive to the person so that they would have them by Christmas.

I personally feel that if you guys are going to do this, you better the the ball rolling! Indeed it sounds easy, but it can get complicated.

So, who is the main person of all this? LOL, I'm at a lost on who ask to signup.

I would set up and do it, seens how I ran the show last year, but I don't want to come in and start dominating the thread -- If it's alright with M2G.

Bump.

Moxie or PonderosaMiniatures is ok to me.
What you think about that, M2G? Others?
