Hobbies RR - write about your hobbies! New Groups: Boardgames, Postcrossing

Hi and welcome to the Hobbies RR! :smiley:

Each of us has at least one hobby - something which makes us happy, loads up our inner battery, is a source of relaxation and part of our identity. Let’s share our hobbies with each other!

The idea of this RR is to write to each other about your hobbies, to share the experience and the secrets of your favorite activities.

Rules are as usual:

To join:

  • Each group has a name of the hobby, so choose your favorite one and join: Post in the thread and send me a U2U with your address.
  • Every group consists of 3 participants, so everyone sends and receives 2 cards.
  • :exclamation: Members new to the Forum can only join one group at first. When all cards for this group are received, you can join more groups.
    (If a member has already absolved another RR, with sent & received cards, I’ll assume this member is a honest and reliable Postcrosser :wink: and let her / him join more than one group.)

Choice of cards:

  • There are no special requirements, but it will be appreciated if you look at the profiles of your partners and select cards according to their preferences, or cards showing your hobby.
  • Please NO ad cards/free cards or handmade cards, besides there are special groups for this kind of cards.
  • This is a RR for written cards.

Deadline for sending:

  • Please send your cards within two weeks since you got the addresses, and post in this thread when you sent/received cards.

Questions / Complaints:

  • If you have a question or an idea for a new group, please post here or send a U2U to me. :slight_smile:
  • In case there is complaint, please don’t post it here, but inform me via U2U.

Enjoy this RR and have fun! :bouncing:

P.S.: I’ve taken over this RR in 2019 from PurpleViola. Thanks a lot for hosting the previous RR! :+1:
