2013 Holiday Bean Swap
ginny
Hi there guys -

From the looks of the shout box we have interest in a bean swap for the holidays...

Lets rock and roll,

The bean swap is a tradition at HRO where 2 members are randomly paired together to exchange some roasted beans to enjoy in the spirit of the holidays. Participants will exchange shipping addresses and decide how many beans to swap (usually 1/2 to 1#) and send each other some beans! It's great for new members to have others taste their roast and for older members to show off their beans.

Please keep in mind THIS IS NOT A CONTEST!!! Please all join the swap and have some fun.


THE DEAL:

SEND SOME OF YOUR BEST ROASTED TO THE PARTNER YOU END UP WITH...

(you can tell them what it is or make them guess, sender choice this year.)


Sign up here if you wish to join and we will put to together some names.

Perhaps planning on pulling names after Thanksgiving and having beans sent before Christmas.

Jeez - don't get a chance to check in today and the shoutbox goes nuts.

Count me in! If we could try to get everybody their beans before Christmas week that would be cool - would love to enjoy someones roast in the downtime.

Can we add a note at the top of the thread explaining the swap in case there are new members who want to join that don't know what it is?

^I would like some more information very much, I can guess what a bean swap is, but I'm not exactly sure.

I have yet to resume roasting and I will have to refine my setup once I do, I guess I'm afraid I won't have something roasted at a level that I'm happy with in time.

Edited to add that I am interested in events like this and I will likely participate in the future.
