Appologies to those who get this more than once.

The hatching of an idea.  Please know that what follows is a thought 
process.  See, this started as a thread on the SCA Pelicans list, but I 
thought ...   whom else can we invite to play?

I recall how grand it was to receive packages when I participated on the 
inside of the line with the 1990 version.  My kids and I have been sending 
packages to soldiers every other month or so, each containing a couple dozen 
cookies, half a dozen pair of new socks, some unscented hand cream or unisex 
scent spray ... packing material is as many peppermint and butterscotch 
candies as will fill the spaces.  Such treats ... once opened ... are 
generally shared among the rest of the squad.

If someone somewhere has a list of SCA folks who are playing inside the 
sandbox ... I can think of SCA type food (mostly subtleties and sugar 
sweets) that would travel well, I just purchased several pair of knitted 
socks from the Basketman at Pennsic, Their Majesties received several 
samples of the Soap-makers guilds in their Largess.   What could be a 
special reminder of our SCA family ties.

OOO ... I am having THOUGHTS ...

See ... the package mailing date for Yule is very near.  Trust me when I say 
that it is a SINCERE DRAG to be in-country at Christmas.

If we could assemble stuff, boxes, and mailing addresses for those SCA folks 
in-country ...

OK ...

If folks are interested in helping me with a project that would send SCA 
gifts to SCA folks in time for Yule,   please e-mail me off-list.  If 
someone has the name and mailing address of a military service member 
serving in-country and might appreciate such a 'care' package for Christmas 
... also let me know --- OFF LIST PLEASE ---
