2014 Official BLT Holiday Tree Exchange ** PLEASE SIGN UP BY 10/31

This year I’ll be coordinating the Bay Lake Tower Tree Exchange!

There will be at least one holiday tree exchange for persons staying at BLT. We are still looking for tree donors—ideally a smaller tree (a 2.5 to 4 footer) is best—and can be themed or not. If you donate, please include a few ornaments, lights, and an extension cord—and contact me for the list of families (see the overarching thread for specifics: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....+tree+exchange)

HOW IT WORKS:
A donated tree, with decorations, will arrive at BLT. A list of people participating will be on the box, along with their tree reservation dates, and I will also have a copy of that list in case it gets separated. You pick up the tree from Bell Services on your date, take the tree back to your room, set up and enjoy!

TO JOIN THE BLT EXCHANGE:
This will be my first time coordinating, so please be patient! Again, to participate, PM with your real reservation name and your dates. I will update the list on the thread with your disboard name only.

THE FINE PRINT:
1. I will ask that each family PM me to confirm that they’ve picked up and dropped off the tree at Bell Services when they do so to prevent the tree from going AWOL. And we’d LOVE it if you’d post a picture of the tree dressing up your holiday!

2. Whenever possible, your pickup date will be your arrival date but it may be necessary to pick up mid-trip to work with people’s schedules. This will likely become apparent after signups are more complete. If we get a second donated tree and enough signups, we will have a second tree schedule as well that I will keep.

3. When your time is up, you'll cross your name off the list with the tree box and return to Bell Service for the next person to pick up.

4. There will be a donation envelope to help defray the shipping costs to and from BLT.

5. I will handle the tree’s return as we will be there Jan 3rd—I will use a prepaid return shipping label and Bell Services will mail it back.

6. We’ll ask that each family add a small ornament to the tree, but this is not a deal breaker.

7. Some may choose to add a small gift for each family subsequent to theirs on the list as well, but again, not a deal breaker.

8. Send me (twinsouvenirs) a PM with your dates and I'll add you to the list. I will update the list from time to time on line with screennames, and I’ll keep real names private on my list.

Our Tree's Schedule

So far we have five families. Dates for the tree are approximate at this point, because if we have overlap I will try to maximize the families involved. As you can see we have room for more families!
  • 11/29-12/4 IloveDisney7
  • 12/14-12/18 Lawboy2001
  • 12/19-12/23 Keh422
  • 12/26-12/29 JS
  • 1/3-1/9 twinsouvenirs (shipping tree back at this point)

Deadline 10/31/14

I am hoping to have a finalized schedule by early November so please sign up for our exchange by 10/31/14. If you see that the tree is currently 'occupied' during your trip, don't despair; please submit your request anyway and we will attempt to accommodate all families.

This is such a wonderful idea, but I don't see how we could get the tree b/c our dates are already occupied with other families. I'd love to be part of the magic, but if it doesn't work out this year then I'll most likely just plan to ship a tree down and ship it back. Great idea and thanks for hosting!
