    I think our powder monkey is MIA. :( Doesn't matter that there are only 5 or so players, not much communication going on in this swap by the swapmeister.

    Don't see how anyone is going to meet his deadline of next Monday either since he's in Alaska, not withstanding we don't have an address to send to. It'll take a little while longer to get there from the Midwest for me too. Could've had mine in the mail last week but ..........

    I think this swap is dead. Since I asked for his address back in my 2/28 post, AKPM has posted about 10 times elsewhere on this site, so he's been around and active but seems not to be interested in following through. That is something I've never seen from a swapmeister, usually it's the swappers that need a little kick in the arse to get flies in on time. I did not have a good feeling when you other guys were done too, ready to mail, asked for an addy and still no response. Surely a red flag in my opinion.

    This might be the smallest swap ever ..........

    Sounds like a plan to me, so we shall christen thee the Swapmeister then.

    It looks like we are all ready, so why not just do it now, unless some other players want to join in last second, even though most have been scared away by now :rofl:

    Your call Mr. G

    I think we will give it till next Wednesday so that AK_powdermonkey has a weeks warning and time to get his address to us before we just take the swapmeister title from him. Other wise if the other people in on this one want vote to just end it now, I will send my address out right away.

    If there are any more takers on joining by then that would be fine by me.

    Just a thought, since we have a low swapper count, and I would guess we had tied a few extra anyways, what if we double what we send to Gig? Personally, I've never used flies I've gotten in a swap and saved them for reference as ties, this way we can actually tie one on and fling it and then save the other.

    Plus, I only really need to get one of mine back for the remembrance of the swap tiers. How does that sound?

    Sounds like the vote to go ahead and send to flies to me was unanimous. I like the double the flies idea, and I will let everyone know. I will also send everyone a PM with my address.
