All righty you know how this works by now. If for whatever reason you don't, click the spoiler down there. (Or get out we don't want you here.)
SPECIAL EVENT: THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN COOKIE EXCHANGE
HOW TO USE THIS OP: if your city name is colored ORANGE, it means there's an upcoming event available in the spoiler, and the next one is happening on the date appearing next to the city name (if confirmed)! Attendee names in BOLD means that this is the first gathering they are attending, while those that have been crossed out are cancellations.
Times, dates, and locations are where everyone is expected to MEET and does not necessarily detail where things will end up.
To sign up for an event, post your interest in this thread so that I can see it, and consider letting the listed Contact know via PM as well.
To initiate an event, just post about it in this thread or PM me with details, and I will edit them in here and update the title.
For people I have listed as CONTACT(S) for each event, please let me know what your preferred method of contact is (i.e., if you're okay with having your mobile number posted in this OP), otherwise by default I will just have people contact you via PM.
1. You must live in Australia. New Zealanders maybe too, I don't know.
2. You must have a valid mailing address which someone can mail you a package in the November - late December time frame.
3. YOU GOTTA BAKE. I'm taking out the cookies for money rule because that's no fun. And I don't wanna make cookies and not get any cookies in return. What can you do with cash? nothing that's what.
4. Please don't be a dick. We generally all know each other in this thread so if you sign up and don't send anything you'll get some cranky faces like whoa.
5. Like other gift exchanges, this is a SECRET exchange. You won't know who your partner is. Some of you dudes don't do the secret satans, but it's only secret until the package is received. Please go ahead and write a little note saying who it's from and tell your recipient about your day or something! Then they can post to say thank you and include photos of themselves eating your delicious cookies and spilling crumbs all over everything.

As agreed, Chris Hallett Eighty-three is going to organize DrunkPAX. Dates and venue have yet to be confirmed. Suggest your available/ideal dates by posting them in YELLOW somewhere in the thread. Do the same for preferred venues. I AM PUTTING EVERYONE DOWN AS AN ATTENDEE AND WILL ASSUME YOU ARE COMING UNLESS YOU TELL ME OTHERWISE. That way if you are a no-show I can call you names.
I myself may be suggesting Korean food to those interested just before DrunkPAX starts, as there are a bazillion Korean restaurants in the city. If you might want in on this let me know!
