FW Swap: Making Sure Everyone Enjoys It!
Since we're going to be featured in a Dallas Morning News story this coming Friday (March 28), & since the story will include directions to the site,
we need to think about how we can make the swap fun for newcomers as well as for us:
1. Those who can, please bring lots of extra stuff so we'll have plenty to share with newcomers.
I my own self have a few lil extra things, & I'm going to help my neighbor "clean up" her flower beds in return for some goodies like althea seedlings.
2. So far, the drawing has been very casual
(dare I say "structure-free"?);
those of us who have been moved by the spirit have just brought whatever,
& everybody's gotten a ticket,
& we keep drawing til everything's gone.
A more even-handed or fair way to handle it would be to give each person a ticket when they contribute an item for the drawing.
If you bring something but don't want to draw for a prize yourself, you can give your ticket to someone else.
What other contingencies do we need to consider?
