I'm going on Vacation RR

Hello and Welcome back to the I’m going on Vacation RR !!!

( temporarily we call it I’m (NOT) going on vacation RR )

Lets’ start the season No.3 :slight_smile:

History

Season No.1 - 2010-2014 hosted by masito
Season No.2 - 2015-2020 hosted by me, Backapack a.k.a. myliu_Lietuva and my daughter Ozkyte.

The RULES

When a postcrosser is going to spend his/her vacations abroad (or even in another region of his/her own country) and would like to send some postcards can share the offer here:cool:

If you’d like to open a new group,
please don’t write it in thread, just u2u me your address and tell
- where you’re going,
- how many card will you send
- the deadline to get the addresses
- your requests for returns cards (don’t be too specific)
- the requirements for the participants of your group (please avoid the 1x country limit, if possible)
Please send requests for new groups at least one week in advance.

If you want to join
please write* in the thread and send me a u2u with your address (if you think I don’t already have)

*you have to number your entry (like a lottery, i.e. Group 47 - #3 or Group 50 - #14 and so on…) so you just have to check a few posts above yours (the last person who joined the same group) and know if there’s still place free. Wrong entries will not be considered!

To let the chance to more different users to join,
you can’t join more than 2 groups in a row (i.e. if you joined both groups 66 and 67, you can’t join group 68)

The requests for return cards have to be respected. Of course when it goes of favorites cards, it can also be a similar one (if you are unsure, you can agree via u2u with the host).

Please send your card within 10 days of receiving the addresses via U2U.
Please post in the thread when you send/resend and receive cards.
Re-sending is possible after 2 months.
Let me know If you don’t need a re-send,
or if you would like to be an Angel:saint: and send a card if someone is non-active for longer time (I will give you the address).

If you have any questions or concerns,
please send me a u2u. I usually reply within a day or two

Sincerely yours,
IEVA
