I must be getting a late start...I've already seen Christmas decorations!!!

I started this exchange in 2007. It was just a handful of people, around ten or so? And these people have become friends I can only wish I could see regularly! I cherish this exchange and the joy and new friendships it's brought people over the years. I admit it's lost some steam in recent years--people are getting busier or even leaving banking--but I couldn't end it before reaching year ten! TEN?! Thank you all for these ten years

This year is open only to previous participants, whether you participated every year or just once. If you have not partihttcipated before but want to and you are a long time BOLer I'm familiar with (or another participant can vouch for you), I'll let you in too.

By now I think everyone is on the Facebook page, but if not, here's the link : BOL Orny Exchange FB page
You can also find me on FB at: Dip's FB page

Due to an unfortunate hard drive death, I don't have anyone's address anymore cry
To be included this year, please send me your full name, shipping address IN ONE LINE, and shipping service if your address can only receive from certain shippers. Address in one line means "123 Main Street, City, ST ZIP" so I can enter it into Excel easier. You can send this information to me on either BOL PM or Facebook message.

Deadline to join is end of day, Monday, October 9.

To pay homage to its roots and ensure everyone can participate fully, there will be a tenth annual orny-X private PM on BOL again! Some of us are also trying to come up with ideas to make this year extra memorable. Pink flaminogs for all and the ability to CHOOSE an extra buddy are some of the ideas so far. Feel free to chime in with more!

If a mod can sticky this thread for the next few weeks, I'd appreciate it! Thanks, as always!
