HO! HO! HO!

I'm thrilled to announce Atari I/O Secret Santa 2017!

 

 

 

$30 Maximum spend on gifts, $20 min spend

 

Please wrap your presents if you can! Let's make this fun!

 

Gift items must pertain to classic video games or retro culture

 

Package must arrive no later than Saturday, December 23, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Holidays! It's time for our 3rd Annual Atari I/O Secret Santa! If you'd like to be part of Secret Santa this year, please post a message below saying that you'd like to participate. If you can, include a link to your Want List in your post, or a list of game systems you collect for. The last day to sign up is Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Names will be assigned impartially by our Moderating team, and we will send you a PM with your Secret Santa information no later than Friday, November 17, 2017.

 

We love classic video games and retro life, and as such gift items can be used or refurbished so long as they meet the criteria of costing you around $30. 

 

It's really important to us to create magical and special holiday memories for our friends here in the Forums. We're like a small town here, a warm community of friends with similar interests. For some of us who may have to sacrifice to make a special Christmas for our families, this may end up being the only presents we get to open. If you'd like to participate in Secret Santa this year but may not have the means, please send me a PM and we will try to find a way to help.

 

Your Secret Santa package can be made up of more than one gift, so long as their total value is around $30 and so long as you've put together a gift package that you feel would be magical and special. (Please don't send a box of "junk")

 

The presents you send should be gift wrapped. We really want this to feel like something special! However, it would be okay to send an item without gift wrapping if you were ordering from an Atari vendor, Amazon or eBay and wanted to have it shipped directly to your person's house as opposed to paying twice for shipping. We encourage you to gift wrap your presents when possible.

 

If you're unable to participate in Secret Santa this year, please think about donating to a deserving charity of your choice. One charity to consider is the Oregon Food Bank, which RickR brought to our attention last year. You can visit them online at www.oregonfoodbank.org

 

 

 

:pow: If you would like to participate, you must sign up by Wednesday, November 15, 2017 :pow: 

 

 

 

 

Happy Holidays to All!

Hey guys!!!! I have thought about this long and hard and as a result of current circumstances I will not be participating in this years Secret Santa. Sadly my physical health has worsen and the doctor put me on new restrictions that conflicted with my current job and have not worked in over 2 months. I was hoping to find work that worked around my restrictions by now but that has been a fail.  

 

As a result I am unable to provide any Christmas for my lady nor her kids this year (she will front me gifts for the kids) and I wouldn't feel right participating in something like this if I couldn't do for them first. Also, I have debts with members here that I am trying to get corrected and that takes next priority after my family. 

 

I had SO much fun with last years SS and was looking forward to it all year but life happens!!!! I will make it up to ya (who ever I get) next year!!!!

 

Have fun guys and have a fun, safe and HAPPY Holiday season!!!!!!!

I made this a family affair, allowing the kids to open the presents.

First up, a Talespin figure specifically for my boy and a Dragonfly pin for my oldest girl. They both enjoyed them! It was really nice of Rick to include something just for them!
