So I've got a question for all of you. Would any of you be interested in seeing scans from the Journal from my BOGW's last couple trips posted here on the forums? And if so, where would be appropriate to post them? Also, anyone from my Box's Journeys have any objections to this?

 

GF

 

I would,

You can always post a separate thread.

I think it'd be neat.

For those interested, I am planning on starting the sign up thread for round 7 at some point this weekend, letting it run until the Tuesday or Wednesday after Reapercon and then getting things rolling shortly after that.

Cool!

Lemme know if you want me to start a box from the Netherlands and send it out.

It might be convenient to start a box sooner. That way it can circulate at Reapercon.

Several of us are planing to have our starter boxes at the con.  Mine has a good mix of plastic, old lead and newer metal.  You don't need to be signed up to dig through it. Standard rules apply:  take one --> leave one.

To save on needing to schlep the box around all weekend, I will have mine out primarily at the Wednesday meet and greet.  If you track me down Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, I would be happy to retrieve it.

My ETA Weds is 6pm, but if traffic is horrible like last year when there was a huge wreck on I-35, I can't promise I'll be at the M&G. I'll more likely have it out Fri-Sun.

I think this is probably the best solution to in this circumstance.

I thought there were a couple last year just left on the table people were painting at and anyone could stop by and sift/sort/swap. May be an option if you find a table to claim as yours.  So hard to tell how things will work this time around being at a new venue.

I like this idea. I am hoping there are at least a couple of tables where people are painting and chatting continuously (maybe not the same people but still..) where the boxes can sit and people can look/add/subtract at leisure.  Since they are good will boxes I don't think anyone is going to get hugely upset if a few more pieces leave than are found and I am pretty sure, given this group, that there is more likely to be pieces found than left.

 

Unless someone makes a grab and dash for the melt table...

      Would there be interest in/support for doing this again this year?
       
      This is the basic idea behind it for those not familiar:
       
      The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.
      I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.
       
      Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
      Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
      Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
      RedAmbrosia--arrived 2/8, sent 2/26
      Ttuckerman--arrived 2/28, sent 3/1
      Fire Eyes--arrived 3/4, sent 3/15
      Chris Palmer--arrived 3/18, sent 3/20
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
