Junk Box 3 Update:

 

I have the following people listed as participants. 

  • nosweargamer
  • Rowsdower70
  • AlamoAtari
  • greenween
  • jmjustin6
  • correagonzalez
  • Willie!

Last chance to sign up!  If anyone else would like to be included, please join now.  If anyone on the list above has changed their mind, please say so now.

 

I'm going to be out of town next week, so the box will be packed up and sent during the week of 1/24/16.  I think I know where everyone is, so we'll put together the mailing order then too.  I think we'll send it to the east coast first, then have it work it's way back west.   

 

Your comments and questions are welcome!  Thank you everyone!!

No surge of storms?   I am disappoint!   I sent AtariBrian a message to see if he was down.

Heck yes I am in, I really have been slacking on my late night scouring of the atari.io forums.  Working on the house all the time, trying to get my game room set up.  Lots of work to try to fit all my crap into a tiny room.

Ha!

I may have to sit this one out. It was easy for me to ship stuff before switching jobs. I'm too afraid I wouldn't be able to ship the box timely.

Plus, I'm intimidated by the rest of the participants. My junk box skills pale in comparison to everyone else's!

I would like to participate but I don't think I'm in any position to do so.  I have the same fear that StormSurge has...I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to ship in a timely manner and I really don't have anything I could put in the box.  Count me out for now...maybe I can participate before the end of 2016.  Sounds like fun though and I'd like to see what everyone ends up with to get an idea.  ;)

Just so everyone knows....postage rates have gone up.  Large Flat Rate box is now $18.75.  Please be aware if you want to participate, you'll need to cover this cost of shipping.  Thanks!
