Sign-up date range: 9/21/05 - 9/30/05

Mailing them sooner is great, you can mail whenever you like during the correct month, just don't be later than the last day of the month.

Mailing them sooner is great, you can mail whenever you like during the correct month, just don't be later than the last day of the month.

I signed up, this should be really fun. I'm sure I'll send way before Halloween but thats alright. Will the send out days always be the last day of each month (just curious). Thanks for organizing.

You should send out whenever you have the items ready, really. But absolutely no later than the last day of the month. I'll specify that more clearly in the first post. Thanks for mentioning it!

I've decided that since so many people expressed an interest in this so quickly to go ahead and up the limit to 12 instead of 10. I figure I can handle two more people signing up and that way a couple more people will be able to participate. So! 8 spaces left, everyone!
