    It is that time of year again! We are starting signups for the advent train early so you have lots of time to shop as you need to send your buddy 25 gifts.

    You have three choices for signups: package train rider, kid's train rider (see post 2) or platform peeps.
    Platform people are those who want to join but do not want to send 25 gifts so chat along with us, get to know other SCers and have a chance to win prizes

    Train Type: No Limit / Size Limit / $$ Limit / Rider Limit
    Boarding will close on October 24
    You will be sending 25 gifts & 5 must be EXACT wishlist items to your buddy (obviously don't send something random that you don't know if they would like)
    Send Date Nov 19 (to arrive by Dec 1)
    You will wrap (individually) and label 25 gifts for your buddy so that they can open a surprise each day from December 1-25

    5 gifts will be exact wishes from your buddy's WL these CANNOT be dollar store items even if your buddy has dollar store items on their list
    3 days can be a bundle of coupons, most wanted, HV, FPC, call ins (this is optional, you can by presents) if you use this option PLEASE have a minimum of $10 and send coupons you yourself would like to receive, utilize your buddies WL ie NO JUNK!

    One gift must be winter or Christmas themed
    One gift must be a gag gift and labelled to be opened on Dec 13

    Remaining items can be surprises for your buddy but make sure they are related to their wishlist or that they would like them

    Senders send a package that you yourself would be happy to receive. The best way to do that is to participate on this thread get to know your buddy if you do you are sure to send a very appreciated package.

    Receivers please remember everyone's budget is different, your buddy should NOT have to go bankrupt to make you happy. Go into this with the thought that it truly is better to give than receive and understand your buddy put a whole lot of time into your package

    Please do not join this train if you are not going to fulfill the requirements. We would like this train to be enjoyable by all and a great experience.



    RIDERS MUST:

    1. Have a Trade Rating of 25 (these ratings cannot be from all VWT’s or RAOKS)
    2. Have a minimum of 200 posts on SC
    3. Have no negative ratings (exceptions may be made if they are over one year or at the moderator's discretion – no exceptions will be made if these ratings came from package trains)
    4. Be an active member of SC
    5. Not be riding any other package train

    If you are interested in joining please post in this thread and include the following in the post:
    "I have read and understand all the Package Train Rules/Guidelines" I understand if I do not follow the guidelines my name will be added to to the consequence list in the sticky”
    A list of all trains you are currently riding

    **All potential riders are subject to moderators approval**


    You must PM me your wishlist before boarding closes at midnight October 24. Your wishlist must have at least 30 items that are easy to find and affordable
    I will send back wishlists for editing to make this train fair to other riders, with 25 gifts, it is impossible to send all items priced at $5+

    Please don’t forget to include the following info with your wishlist.

    SC Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Likes:
    Dislikes:
    Pets:
    Kids/Ages:
    Allergies:
    Most Wanted Item(s):

    Link to your coupon wishlist if you have one:


    Rider Responsibilities:

    • The Send Date is: Nov 19 – Which means you MUST mail on or before that day – No exceptions.
    • You MUST send 5 full sized items from your buddy’s wishlist and 20 other gifts suitable to your buddies list - preferred that most items are wishlist but make your wishlist easy to help with this!
    • You must post a minimum of 3 times per week during this train (but you can post as much as you like). Since many people are travelling at this time, you can take a 1 week vacation from posting without penalty if we are informed in advance.
    • Mandatory posts must include a post for each of the following:
      • Requesting seat
      • Confirmation of sending
      • Confirmation of receiving/Thank You

    • You must mail by the stated date. Please note that package trains MUST have tracking unless delivered in person. Package mail can cost $10-20 dependent on weight and size. You are responsible for mailing, sending from a store does not have the same feeling as opening handpackaged items and you cannot ensure they mail on time. (PM the tracking number to FallenPixels – Tracking numbers are mandatory unless you hand deliver in person)




    • All items must be in new/unused condition (other than gently used movies, books, games, etc.).
    • Liquids must be wrapped well to prevent leaking and ruining the package (a ziploc works well)
    • Glass items must also be well wrapped and protected to prevent breaking and ruining the package
    • $2+ items (from wishlist) are considered full size items
    • $1, $1.25, $1.50 items, samples, trial & travel size items are considered extras
    • Please also keep in mind that since you will be sending actual packages that shipping will cost more than regular coupon trains (on average about $10-$20). If you do not have CP’s Venture One card you may want to look into it. It’s free and anyone can join, you can use your SC name as the "business"




    CONSEQUENCES OF NOT FOLLOWING ALL RULES


    • If you do not follow ALL of the above rules, you will be excluded from riding one future package train and WILL receive neutral feedback
    • Repeat/Second offences will also mean you are excluded from at least two package trains and possibly all future package trains
    • If you do not send a gift, you will be excluded from all future package trains
    • If you do not send a gift, you will receive two negative ratings - One from your buddy and the other from the conductor.
    • If you do not communicate with the moderators regarding why the gift was not received, you may also receive a trading ban at the Trade Mod's discretion.



    **Disclaimer: Smart Canucks Owner, Mods, Admin and/or Train Conductor is not responsible for lost, stolen, mislabeled, damaged, unsatisfactory or unsent packages. Tracking numbers are mandatory (unless hand delivered). *

    You can choose to send/receive an additional package for your child(ren).
    To sign them up, please send a separate WL “Kid’s and Teen's Advent Train WL” in the subject
    you might get the same buddy for your kids or a different one, so please note that this will increase your postage costs

    In the thread, please post the following statement:

    I have read and understand all the “Package Train Rules/Guidelines." I understand if I do not follow the guidelines my name will be added to the consequence list in the sticky.


    The rules are the same as for the adult train as well as the consequences.

    If you have more than one child, you can sign them all up for a maximum of one combined package (their buddy will send gifts for kids on alternating days etc).

    Tracking and insurance are mandatory.


    Include in your WL:
    Real Name
    Mommy/Daddy’s SC Name
    Mailing Address
    Birthday
    Favorite Color
    Favorite Treats
    Favorite Hobby/Sports/Activities
    Wishes (at least 30)

    I am thinking hard about this one. Halloween one was going to be my last for this year, but since that train didnt start up... I do have the budget for it, I just think with baby expected Dec. 16 I might be busy. But.... mail day is early enough. I don't know what to do yet. I am working on my list in the mean time.
