    2011 Toy Swap

    OK, lets do this.

    The 2011 Toy Swap will be simple. You can make a yo-yo, bandsaw puzzle toy, basically any type of a toy. It can either be finished or left unfinished, if you are concerned about the painted toy law.

    Try and make it so the toy will fit in a flat rate box, to make it easy on all. If you want to make it bigger, that's OK too.

    Entry cutoff will be June 19th. Ship no later than July 17th.

    Those that have stepped up to the challenge:
    Jonathan Shively- Address
    Bob Gibson- Address
    Dan Noren- Address
    Brent Dowell- Address
    Darren Wright- Address
    Barry Stratton- Address
    Ken Ward- Address
    Sharon Korn- Address
    Ken Cook- Address
    Kerry Burton- Address

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Is this the official "rules" or "entry" notification??
    If so, I am in.

    Yep, this is the official join up thread. We can tweak it a little as we go.

    Figured if we didn't start, we would never get there.

    And if we don't know where the finish line is, how will we know when we get there?
