    I’m in for this, on the basis that I’ll not moderate any escalations in this particular thread due to involvement.

    If that’s ok with the Seniors and Admin of course?

    IMG_0235.JPG @Greg Hook sent this to my dad today! I'm not a football type person and he is a Man United supported, so thought it would be funny!

    I have never participated in one in person, so not sure if you do reveal anyway?? Only ever done the AVF one.

    yup, in again, please! and, to me, i prefer not knowing- if people want to reveal themselves, fine, but i dont go hunting them out....what narks me is people not posting to say thanks for what they received - i put a fair bit of research and effort into last year's one and not a word...not that it still stings, of course...:D

    Am I missing something in the photo or perhaps it’s too early in the morning?

    One more thing... couple of issues last year where people received either second hand or incomplete items. I’m going to say this year items must be new and complete. If your not willing to buy something specifically then please do not put your name forward. I’m sure most people will agree with that.

    Ah sorry, I thought you meant funny as there was something funny in the photo, rather than funny that you were just there! :D

    My recipient wasn't bothered about knowing, so I never revealed.

    I’m in as always. The AVF SS is my most highly anticipated present to open.

    This ^^^
    I opened mine in the early hours, wasn't much past midnight tbh.
    Last year someone had been very observant as I had spoken about issues with non smart TV and certain apps/video streaming sites. I can't remember the whole thing but my SS sent me a Roku stick and a couple of other cool bits. The Roku allowed me to have all the features of a smart TV and was great.
    I am now using this in my bedroom as I have not carried on with having sky in there. With Netflix and amazon prime video, there is more than enough for me to watch.
    So to my SS last year, the gift has been very much used and appreciated :smashin:

    Sadly for the reasons a l e x mentions I'm out this year, I usually love SS and did four last year but received such little thought or effort in return that this year it is none :(
