I would like to start another RR.
Please let me know if you would like to partake as I would like to make a start soonish.
I'm open to suggestions for quantity - number or weight - 40g off paper is quite a lot and keeps postage costs down, on/off paper, era etc.

Suggestions
I thinking a 1:1 swap eg. one taken out, one put in.
70/30 split commemeratives to definitives
No duplication so you can't put in if it is already there.
Maintain the mix of values/topicals/countries so we don't end up with all low value items.
Commem for commem, defin for defin. No switching.
No damaged stock - only mint or fine used (CTO OK too?)
Nice stamps used for postage between participants.
A list of the people participating is included in the envelope.
They notify the group they have received it/sent it on.
Should be posted on within a week of receipt.
Should not be sent within same country, maybe even send it to furthest person next.

What do you think?

Participants - Please drop me your postal details and I'll compile a sheet. Green when received.

Please count me in again. I am assuming this one would be world widw? Would there be any interest in a specific country RR? .. e.g., one for just Canadian ... U.S. ... Australia ... or whatever?

oh, yes...I am in. My suggestion is a number of stamps, lets say for conversation sake 50. You send me 50 stamps, (I collect Europe) and you let me know what you collect I send you 50 nice stamps. It is a honor system, like Stamp Scouts. I do not care how far I have to send it...

I was thinking Worldwide for this one but I also think a single country would be great.

Please send me you postal addresses if you are not shown in green.

Fifia emailed me to say she has been banned from the forums??

I don't mind adding people to the recipient list after starting and I'd like to start by posting to the first person this weekend.
