YES! It's 'THAT' time of year already!

To continue a yearly tradition, the 'Basset Hound Holiday Card Exchange 2007' is taking off.

- What is the Basset Hound Holiday Card Exchange (BHHCE)?

The BHHCE is a yearly tradition of Cyberhound. Participating members of the BHHCE send Holiday Cards to eachother. Most of us create custom made cards with pictures of our 'Slobber Slingers', but any card will do.

- When?

The name says it all... Holiday Card. Cards should be sent in December, just in time for the Holiday season.
You can sign up till November 15th. Final lists will be sent out round November 20th.
If you enrolled but changed address, or want to withdraw, please notify me before November 15th. Any modification after this date will be impossible.

- Who

Anyone can participate, but keep in mind that participating costs a bit of money. Last year we had about 40 participants. This means 40 cards, 40 envelopes, and 40 stamps, some of them international mail (participants from the UK, Belgium, Norway, Sweden,...).

- How

To enroll, please send the folowing data to [email protected]

* Your Basset's name(s)
* Your complete address exactly as it should figure on the envelope (this is important, as in different countries there are different ways of writing addresses, we don't want any cards to get lost in the mail or arrive late)
* ONLY use [email protected] for any communication about the BHHCE. DO NOT POST your personal data on the forum.

Prefarably, use the folowing format:

- Cyberhound user name:
- Basset (or other dog's) name:
- Address (complete, exactly as it should be on the envelope):
- Any special remarks or requests

You will receive confirmation of the receipt of your data soon after you sent it. If you don't receive a confirmation within 24hours, please PM me (and ONLY PM me) on the forum.

Please, DO NOT send multiple messages by e-mail, as this will make it impossible for me to follow up the stream of messages and wil cause errors.

Last year we had a lot of people not receiving either the confirmation or the list as it ended up in their 'Yahoo Spam Folder', so please check this folder on a regular basis. It could very well be that the reply or the complete list is in there.

And as an example, here is how a 'Basset Hound Holiday Card Exchange Wall' looks after a few weeks:





Have fun taking those pics for the cards:)

Patrick

PS: please DO NOT forget to specify the country :) Had a hard time last year looking up some cities to know the country :)

Last time, we received cards from forum members signed with their actual names only, so that it was hard at times for me to match who on the forum the card was from- I'm wondering if this year everyone could sign their forum name as well?

I'd say both A and B :)

Anyway, still 'only' 10 addresses so far, so keep them coming.

Don't worry... I don't think anyone is thinking of winter or the holidays just yet because it's just so darn HOT right now! Come October there will be a LOT more interest, with the usual rush of last minute participants between Halloween and Thanksgiving. :lol: Looking forward to some great Basset photos and MUCH cooler weather...

Still more than time enought to send me your details to participate. It's a bit 'slow' taking of this year, but I'm sure we'll end up around 50 again.

Obviuously you can PM me your details. This counts for everyone by the way, but please only if the mail returns with a permanent error (which shouldn't happen but with e-mail you never know)

Time is starting to run short to enroll. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem we're going to break last year's record.

I'd start a Poll though: Everyone who wants a 'real' picture of Emma and Doris, with footprints, please try to persuade Steinar to participate :)

Give it time... sometimes people put off plans to participate because the holidays still seem so far away, and hot weather can make it seem even further away than it is!!! ;)

Only 22 submissions today, and a little month left.
I WANT a wall full of Holiday Cards, and 22 will just not do. So c'mon, participate!
