    It is that time of year again! We are starting signups for the advent train!

    Train Type: No Limit / Size Limit / $$ Limit / Rider Limit
    Boarding will close on November 5th, 2017 - 8pm EST
    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 19th (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 buy 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
    Typically we have had a gag gift day on December 13th


    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 do not meet requirements 1 and 2, you may still be allowed to ride as long as you are a long term member of SC. PM FallenPixels to request permission



    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 november 7th, 2016. 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+
    when PMing your wishlist, please use the subject: Advent - USERNAME so it is easier to find them with your username and Advent in the title


    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 19th – Which means you MUST mail on or before that day – No exceptions. Your buddy needs to have their package for December 1st
    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). *

    Here are some suggestions for wishlist items:

    Unfortunately I'm only going to be a lurker this year. We've fallen into some money troubles the last couple months and sadly can't even contemplate fitting this into our budget

    I hope we have enough to participate. I'm definitely wanting to. There doesn't seem to be any activity on the site in the last few years so I don't have much hope. Maybe it will just be me and you army girl exchanging hahaha

    I definitely want to participate but need a couple days to think about it and see if I can put together a wish list as we literally just moved last boxes into the new place last night and now need to unpack (and all this on top of dealing with our 20 months old hyper active son while dear husband is at work lol).
