Default November 2017 PITH

PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH BEFORE SIGNING UP

As with all IAP activities, the IAP Activity Rules apply to this PITH (the member must have his or her first and last name posted in their profile and be able to be contacted through the IAP’s private messaging system or email. The member must have completed all previous IAP activity obligations).

PITH stands for "Pen In The Hat". If we could ever be so lucky to find ourselves in one big room we could have a real PITH. Everyone would put one of their pens into a hat. The hat would be passed among us. Each person would draw a pen out of the hat to keep as their own.
THIS IS NOT A TRUE PITH – it is more like a swap – you will be randomly paired with another participant to exchange a pen and 2 pen blanks. The PITH chairperson assigns each participant a number, uses www.random.org and randomizes the list of numbers 5 times. Two lists are generated to create the final list of swap partners. The results will then be published in a new thread on October 26th. Plan on having your pens completed and shipping by November 20th so we can see pictures starting by the end of the month.

THE THEME FOR THIS PITH IS "LOCAL WOODS"
The idea behind this is, if possible, to use woods that are part of your geographical area. Show us some of the beautiful woods that are inherent in your neck of the woods(pun intended). But, don't fret, if you don't have access to a supply of blanks from your local forest, just use what you have. But, if possible do your best to get them from the local flora as close to home as you can.


ALL MEMBERS AND CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN ARE WELCOME, IF YOU ARE YOUNG, OR NOT SO YOUNG, YOU ARE ELIGIBLE.

YOUTH – your kids and grandkids can participate (they will be partnered with another youth - or an adult member willing to swap with a youth). Blanks are not a required part of the youth swap, but can be included. You, the member, are fully responsible for the youth fulfilling their commitment in this PITH.

If you sign up for this swap you are obligating yourself to complete it. We understand that things happen and something could come up that would prohibit you from completing a pen for this swap. If that should happen, please immediately inform your swap partner and the event coordinator. The sooner you let us know the easier it is to find a workable solution or someone to take your place.

Remember that this is an international forum and that you could potentially be paired with someone from another country if you participate. There is a possibility that you will need to ship the pen you make internationally. Be aware that some countries have custom laws that prohibit wood from being shipped into their country. Please take this into consideration if you get paired with someone from another country. If you absolutely can't ship overseas or have a problem with shipping to another country or someone in particular, please let me know.


The main objectives of this PITH are to HAVE FUN and to FOSTER FRIENDSHIPS among members. The IAP is made up of individuals of varying levels of skills, abilities, and resources. There have been instances in the past where some members who participated in a swap felt that the pen they received was not equal to the pen they provided. If the possibility of receiving a pen from someone who does not possess the same level of skill, ability, or resources as you will bother you, please do not sign up. We do ask you make your best effort at this pen, that doesn’t mean it has to be your GREATEST EVER pen, but that you make your best effort.

Now, lets get out there and warm up some bearings!!

I'll give it a shot... Maybe I'll get paired with that "Mad Rooster" from Bourbon Country!

"L" stands for "Loopey", right Ernie?
