    Well I have just entered in a sort of secret santa slingshot trade on the ssf, it entails random entrants trading slingshots with other entrants from around the globe.<br><br>This is pretty cool, I have a slingshot being put in the post in a day or 2 heading to Australia to Hrawk as a result of this contest, and one coming in from the states from Charles, I'm really looking forward to this.<br><br>I wonder if we could organize something like this here, anyone that wants in is welcome.<br><br><br>I don't think this has to be a brand new frame just constructed, it can be old, but I was thinking using trees native to our own respective areas would be more appropriate and unique, so naturals or board cuts like from your area would be best.<br><br>Any comments thoughts or suggestions? Anything?<br><br>If you would like to do this post here saying so <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> There doesn't have to be a set time frame per se, we don't need to rush things, we can workit out according to each participants needs. I understand people shouldbe busy making taurus themed cattys right now lol.<br><br><br>Something like this I envision <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br><img src="http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/239584/239584,1301730633,1/stock-vector-earth-globe-with-arrows-74890498.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I would say banded for sure . BUT please look at the laws of the country you are sending into, some places like australia will not allow banded slingshots through customs...<br><br><br>Zamarion, this doesnt have to be right this month, it can be in 2 months, or whatever amount of time we all are ok with, i know many of us to dont have jobs, so if they wanted to participate we could allow them plenty of time to gather the needed funds. Shipping hasnt been more than 12 dollars for me , and that was in country, it was cheaper for me to send one to Joerg in Germany than to my brother in canada... :s</span>

    If you keep the size of the slingshot nice and small it will be cheaper on shipping lol, should I change this to pfs' from around the world? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">
