Well, we are at 12, I kinda want to hold it at this number in order to make it easier for people to finish. If we keep it open it may become very hard to get things done on time.

However, I will let you guys decide if we wanted to let a few more in. I know there are some people I was hoping would join and it may be that they just haven't logged in since last night.

What do you guys think?

I'm OK with a few more. Sleep is for people too lazy to fish.

Good point, when people signed up they knew what they were getting in to, I can't change it now.

This Swap is officially closed.

All flies are due in my hand by 6/15.

If this goes well I will see about running another one on that date.

I actually didn't mean that in a bad way. I just meant that people signed up thinking "OK, I'll have a month to tie up 12 flies tops, I can do that."

It would be wrong for me to change the number people have to tie especially since one of the rules is

Quote:
3: If you feel you cannot complete your flies and have them IN THE MAIL prior to the deadline, DO NOT ENTER THE SWAP. The deadline is the deadline. Period.
Some people may have signed up thinking 12 is fine, but if we increase it to 16 or whatever that may be more than they think they can tie.

I should have never made the offer. By signing up people signed a contract, it would be wrong of me to change the contract after they sign.

You're doing it right MudBug. If the swapmeister doesn't lay down the law, who will? Make sure you post pictures when this thing gets wrapped up!

Sorry about the permission thing, I meant that I would ask my parents. Also I hope everybody is okay if my fly is a griffiths gnat.

You tie whatever you want to tie for your part of the swap.

Eric - I am going to try to get mine done within the next couple days. I am heading out in a couple hours to pick up the needed materials.
