PITHing in my pants 2017...ALL POINTS DUE!!!
« on: February 27, 2017, 07:13:06 am »
Well, happy March.  Time to put on the adult diaper and sit down for a good long PITH.

The last two years the PITH has gone beautifully so, once again, I propose the same basic rules.  If anyone has any thoughts about changes they'd like to see, please post.

1.  State the # of points you are sending out.
2.  I'll write a name per point on paper strips and do the hat thing.  I'm going to spend a particularly good amount of time this year crumpling up each piece of paper and shuffling shuffling shuffling the names.  Bonepile and I have connected on some kind of cosmic level with PITH trades and he's only an hour away.
3.  My wife will draw names.
4.  I'll post the sequence and you send a point to the name above yours.  If a name is repeated in the draw from multiple entries, consecutively, the name will be reshuffled.  First drawn sends to the last person.
5.  You are responsible for sending your contact info. to the person.
6.  Would like to keep this US only.  If there is international interest, say so, and we'll see who all enters and make a decision from there before the draw.  No promises.
7.  Please post pictures of the points you've received!

I encourage anyone sitting on the fence post to get involved!

ALL points shipped by Saturday, May 13th!

I'll kick it off with 3 points.

Keep yer knickers dry, lads. ;) ;D

Steve, If everyone could send a picture of the point they received to the site. I like seeing what others made and sent, If a old wood tick like myself can figure out how to post pics so can everyone. Get the 8yr old neighbor kid involved. He will show ya how to post a pic, also who knows could be the next new knapper. Thanks Bob. ooh put me in for two. thanks

This would be my first time. A question or two. Are we talking arrow points? Spear points? If you say 3 points they go to 3 different people and 3 different people send points to you? I'm on the fence but sooner I get off it better chance I'd have of getting some nice points out. My busy season is approaching soon. I already got a quite a few projects going but I should sit down a knock out something again soon.

Noted Bob, I included pictures in the rules.  It seems only right and thanks for joining in!

Bjrogg, All points are game and I'd imagine even various blades or something like eccentrics would be appreciated.  Use your best judgement.  You are correct in your understanding regarding the # of points.  I'll be shipping to 3 different people.  Often, people will send more than one point or a point and some material, but that is out of generosity and not mandatory at all.

If you feel like you may be swamped with work or time, why not enter for 1?  What's to lose...

I'm in for 2 as long as folks are cool with my likely sending something crude.  I have a long way to go with my Knapping but I will try my best.
