NEW: 'Name-That-Seed' Round Robin

nettasauraOctober 9, 2006

Hi everyone! I would like to host my first Round Robin.

It will be one big envie that will travel from person to person.

Rules:

1). The envie will start with at least 30 packs of seeds, but probably more....all named.

1). This robin will be for named cultivars only (ie: Nemophila "Pennie Black"). No general mixes or descriptions. *I realize that this might end up excluding some very new newbies, but all I have left in my trading box is named cultivars so I thought I might try this as a Round Robin.

2). The envie will travel to person #1 who will remove as many packs as they like and will replace those with the same amount of packs or more, again named cultivars only. They will then send the envie on to person #2 and so on.

3). Your trade packs don't need to be stuffed because some named cultivars are harder to come by. And they can be commercial, collected, or extra from trades. Most of mine will have the standard 25 seeds....more for smaller seeds, a few less for larger seeds, less than 25 for hard to find seeds.

Please post here. Sign up deadline is November 10th. The Robin will launch November 15th. I hope to get at least 20 people for this one to make it worth it, more would make it fabulous.

Hi
I'd like to join too. I buy a lot of commercial seed. All named varieties and I am looking for named varieties. It's going to take me a week to update my seed list so might just start trading them.

I was thinking last night and I am going to ask everyone to send me the four digit extension to your zip code because believe it or not it really does facilitate faster shipping!

sueguanzon & mmqchdygg I have your extensions already!

I really hate to have to put this in, but due to recent circumstances on several other Round Robins, I am asking that any players who would still like to sign up for this Robin be able to send three reliable references from other Robins or from well known traders. And the references will be checked. For those who have already signed up for this RR I will privately contact those of you whom I do not personally know - this is by no way meant to impugn the honesty of any trader, just simply a way to ensure the fun and success of this Round Robin for all of the players.

It's too much of a pain in the butt to check references, so I withdraw my earlier request and we will just have to go on good faith that all of our players will follow through for the rest of us! Thanks for understanding...being a new host I had a minor panic attack after finding out how many other Robins and Swaps have gone awry. I don't want that to happen to mine! I hope I haven't discouraged anyone from signing up...there is still lots of time!

I have been a busy collecting Delivery Confirmation labels from the post office, starting snail mails, selecting seeds for the Robin, and hopefully coming up with some fun surprises for all of the players...wishing that time would fly a little faster so we could start, but I want more players too! ~Netta

Please get your responses to me quickly so I can start working on your gifts. I have a tentative flight plan worked out that is not written in stone just in case we have any new signups between now and the deadline.

For all the players who have sent the responses to my e-mail, I have started working on your gifts and am having a blast!

We have lots of room for new signups and the deadline for signing up is November 10th.....

Thanks everyone!
