Just 10 days left to put yourself on Santa's nice list (all the rest of you will go on his other list!) Join the fun and get a chance to get items you may never have the chance to get on your own. I can't wait for Santa to deliver presents to my mailbox. Please join in and celebrate this year with a big fossiliferous fa-la-la-la-la.

Thanks Mike, I knew my threat of the naughty list would create some kind of action. Now lets see a lot more play!

OK kiddies, you have less than a week to make sure you stay off of the naughty list!  Hurry up and sign on to get your great gift box. Will you get that awesome fossil you've always wanted? You will never know unless you play the Secret Santa game.

Get on board and join all the rest of the lucky ones that are going to play. Time is running down, so get your name in the hat (Santa's hat, that is).

Well I expect I'm already on the naughty list, but I'm happy to hop over the boards and join the game. U.S. only, I'm sorry to say.

count me in!! USA

 

Time's are tough Mr. Caldigger.  I know that not everyone has great items and I'm just happy to join in and share. Texas has pretty much the same fossil's but it's the joy of finding that premium specimen.

 

Happy Holidays fellow hunter and collectors. Remember it's the Joy of giving not the wondering if you get a lump of coal...  Oh?? wait that is a fossil in a mineral form.

Okay! Everyone should have someone to send to (and therefore someone sending to them) except one person (you know who you are) who we are patiently waiting on an address for. (if you have not gotten an address yet and I haven't already talked to you please PM me ASAP)

Thanks to everyone for giving :)

 

Whenever you receive (and choose to open, if for some reason you'd like to wait) post a picture of the cool fossils you've been gifted. 

Have a wonderful winter everyone!

Am I the first to receive my Secret Santa package??? Anticipating coal for the way I behaved this year, I was pleasantly surprised to receive some goodies from the Georgian Bay Formation/ upper Ordovician. Hope everyone enjoys their gift as much as I do. Merry Xmas to everyone.

Me thinks Ynot's secret Santa package came from an international player! ;)

That would be pronounced from "an international player eh."

yellow - bryozoans

purple - gastropod

green - bivalve

 

Happy Holidays to you and to all on TFF!:)
