I agree. I've been closely watching MAW for weeks just hoping to get in on that action but sadly I haven't been able to. I see this as a GREAT alternative, some fun trading with MASSIVE packages(insert joke here) being shared! Plus an awesome chance to try some beers I can not normally have and to share the wealth!

I feel really bad for whomever gets my package (insert joke here). The beer that I am planning on sending will force them to move to my area. I can't wait to hook someone up!

It's time for me to thank you all! You guys are awesome! What I imagined being the most difficult part, getting all your addresses, was so simple.

I can't thank you all enough for making it that easy. I have done the drawing and will start sending pm to everyone with recipient address. To make it more interesting, I am not even going to give you the persons hbt name. You will not even know who you are actually shipping to. This should make it even better! There are three il guys, a couple pa guys, and even two cali guys. So you won't know which of them you are shipping to. And the best part, no one even drew a name that was from the same state. So I didn't have to modify the drawing at all, I didn't think this would happen.

Lastly, please please please, triple check that your recipient does not get the beer if it is at all possible that they could get it. I'll get addresses to you ASAP, and please remember to have it in their hands by June 7. The sooner the better, but we all know life happens and sometimes we can't ship as planned. Which is why we have two weeks to get it there.

Not sure if you guys need to, but should I have you all send me your tracking numbers? Or just leave it all to you?

I'm willing to send tracking info if everyone wants. Not worried if its a pain for someone else.

So pumped!! Yeah I think sending tracking info to TheMan is a good idea just so he can see if anyone is having trouble getting their package out ( lots of package jokes) and could potential send a gentle reminder. But not gonna be upset if everyone thinks its a hassle or something to send tracking numbers.

I think this is a good idea.

And if you were to send tracking info to each recipient, that would keep it anonymous but still allow recipients to know when to expect their package.

That sounds good. I will send my tracking info to one person though...I don't want people deducing who is getting a package based on my shipment info lol plus, the person shipping to me would know who he shipped to.

I'll pick someone that is not involved in an Illinois shipment.
