    Sorry guys, been really busy this week. But the weekend is finally here so I got around to taking some pics. They have been uploaded to the Flickr group. *I apologize for the crummy photos, I was a bit too excited to open up that box. ;-)

    Also took out the parts and added some of mine in!

    And finally, I have done the little raffle and the second recipient of the box will be @Chooch!!!!!!

    Hope you enjoy the parts in there. :) Will let you know once I mail the box out.
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Nice! Thanx @LegobrandonCP - I will be sitting on the porch for the next week waiting for the postman.... :) Just kidding.. Have fun with the box and see it when it gets here... Going to look @ the photos now.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    Got the box mailed out! Should be with @Chooch in 6-12 days. :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Thank you Sir!!! Can't wait...
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Now that was a fast turnaround! Lucky for @Chooch & awesome work @LegobrandonCP!
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Just an update - nothing from the North has hit my doorstep yet. Patiently waiting :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    I think Canada is a beautiful country with wonderful people, but I'm not visiting any time soon and with the soon to be announced hockey lockout, I had only one thing to look forward to from the land of the Maple Leaf.....
    It feels like Xmas, eh???
    My Wife is down with a sinus infection so hoping to paw through this in the coming weekend and get it out on Sept. 24... I will advise.
    Thanx @LegobrandonCP !!!!

    We have been dealing with illness & forest fire evacuations this week, but found time to look through the box. We are going to trade stuff out this weekend and decided we wanted the box to go somewhere we would like to be. Since we love cruising, we will be sending it to @USMCYodz - let us know if you are looking for anything in particular... Box will be shipped Monday, Sept. 24

    Don't know if you got my message...I am gone right now doing flights. If you could send it to someone else and I will just have to hop in the line later on if possible

    Hmmm... No message from you on Brickset but I saw this. Will do - Sorry we can't send it to you :( We will identify a new receiver today and notify them via this topic. Stand by....
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Okay, the Wife has decided since she can't 'cruise' to Florida with the box, she would like to see New England in the Fall and the pretty colors. We will be sending the Jam Box to @GIR3691 - GIR let us know if you need anything special and we can still get the box mailed tomorrow.

    Thanks @Chooch Just being stuck and busy with everything. Would hate to hold up the box for a few weeks when I wasn't even around.
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @GIR3691 - Box is en route - should see it by middle to end of next week...
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    @Chooch You didn't take pictures of what you took out and put in!
  • bmwlegobmwlego Long Island, New YorkMember Posts: 808
    @GIR3691
    Wow...I wonder who will get the box after you???
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 672
    Okay, cool! I'll try to get to it as soon as it arrives. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks leading up to New York Comic Con, but I'll make it a priority.
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @LegobrandonCP I have pictures - I just figured GIR would like the surprise & when I saw he got the package, I would post them then.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Nah, @GIR3691 hates surprises! But he's definitely keeping busy before NY Comic Con...@bmwlego too...even me... Hmmmm
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Ok - I'm hoping box #3 has showed up in New England by now...
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    The question then becomes is @GIR3691 in New England? I can confirm he was alive as of late dinner on saturday =-)

    Hasn't arrived yet. The anticipation is killing me.

    I'll be able to hand it off to @murphquake or @bmwlego some time next week though, so it'll go through us pretty quick.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    oh no you don't @GIR3691! pick a name out of a hat like a good jambalayer buddy! (though it would be much more convenient to pick @bmwlego or me, but i like the random aspect of this round of the jambalaya... me and Brian have already done swaps in both directions, and the 3 of us can all easily trade parts on our own anytime we get together (did i ever tell you i have that bricktober magnet set aside for you?)










    not that i wouldn't mind a sneak peek or a dip into the box before it comes back this way... can't let all the good stuff get sent off to someone we don't even like ;-p

    Anyone else have an opinion on this? If it isn't clear GIR/BMW/MQ are all LUGmates and will be spending much of next week together at NY Comic Con, I'd rather spend a little extra on shipping and get the box moving, than just having it shuffling around here (plus we're all going to be busy). I'd rather GIR holds it a few extra days so he can make his swaps and then sends it where the fates determine... even if it is right here in the end.

    @GIR3691 Okay I know USPS is bad but it should be there by now... any word???
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 672
    Yeah, I have it. Going to send it out in the next couple days.
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Ok - glad to hear it. Thanks for the update.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    LUCKY!! @GIR3691
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 672
    Sent it out today to address #8! I'll withhold pictures of what I added and removed for now to save the surprise!
  • sas0214sas0214 USAMember Posts: 28
    My husband and I will be on the look out for it. We are so excited.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Be honest @GIR3691, you sent them a couple of your Tumblers from the NYCC display! You can post the pics, people have the option to go look or not... it also gives others on a list to ask for dibs on an element they've been looking for (all those 1x2 black bricks you were nice enough to include, 1 for 1, to the rare minifigs you took out, for example). That has worked nicely for a few people, as sometimes someone else on the line has lots of a part they express interest in and can put in a little baggie just for them, thus leaving the ones in the box for anyone who wants them, or letting that person take them also if they make it far enough down the line. This keeps the people from the back of the list from missing out on something that's in the box early on... there's no guarantee you're gonna get it, but most of us don't mind if there's a good use intended for it (eg; making a big modular in medium pearl lavender and there's three 2x4 bricks you can use? ask for em!)
  • bmwlegobmwlego Long Island, New YorkMember Posts: 808
    @gir3691 tells me my name isn't on the list. Not sure why? I responded on August 14th that I was game for round three. Please add my name to the list.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    K @bmwlego, don't know what happened there :( If you would PM me your address, I will get @sas0214 to add it to list when they get the box.
    Hopefully, everyone is enjoying this box so far? :)

    That's true. Added to the Flickr group pool. Look at your own risk!

    OMG SUPER JEALOUS (exclusives)!!!!! dont wanna spoil it.
  • jadeirenejadeirene US, CaliforniaMember Posts: 475
    ^ Dangit, you made me look. I've been trying to stay away from the pictures, but your post intrigued me. Now I'm hoping that some of it will still be there when the box gets to me.
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Yep - knew I would miss out on some of the NY exclusives. When are we starting Jambalaya #4?? :) Hee hee

    @LegobrandonCP No need to apologize. The curiosity would have gotten the better of me eventually.
  • sas0214sas0214 USAMember Posts: 28
    I have received the box...and will be finishing up with it either tonight or tomorrow. I will send it on its way by Wednesday. This is so much fun, I wish it could go one forever.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    I'm not listed on the first page's list. Is there an updated list of who's left in this round?
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @BrickDancer I have a photo of the list from when I received the box and you are on it... There are 16 ppl total for Box number 3.
  • sas0214sas0214 USAMember Posts: 28
    I mailed the box off today and it is heading to allmybricks. I will upload my pics later this evening.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Man I keep seeing all the awesome stuff in the box and hoping some will be left for me! :)
  • sas0214sas0214 USAMember Posts: 28
    I have uploaded my pictures but look at your own risk...
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Ummm - WOW - That is awesome.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    I call DIBS on the vintage set and bulldozer polybag lol.....Just kidding everyone... HOW many people till I see it again??? LOL
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    i believe i said before I got no problem with people calling dibs on stuff
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Yeah I know @murphquake but you were the only one who said it was ok. :) It's no biggie, lol. I will wait my turn. IF anyone wants them before they reach me, by all means, trade in for them.
