This will be my first Dyxum event too. Just wish I could say I was 'all set'.

Thanks, Jumbolino67! You're on the list. We're at 18, matching last year. Maybe we'll get a few more in the next couple of days.

It's Tricky01!!

We're at 19 now, +1 from last year. Congrats, gang.

I'll have to get a count from prior years to see how things have changed. With luck, we get a few more sign-ups before the end of tomorrow.

OK, let's go! Here is the final list.

I did my best to maximize the geographical spread. I bucketed folks into US (6 people), UK (7 people) and "rest of world" (ROW, 6 people) buckets. Next, I randomized each bucket and then picked from US, UK, ROW to make the final list.

The idea is to send cards to 5 people below you on the list (wrapping the list if you are close to the bottom). For example: #6 will be sending postcards to #7, #8, #9, #10 and #11.
At the end of the list, we will just roll forward to #1.
So #16 will send a card to #17, #18, #19, #1 and #2.

To make this happen each person should PM his postal address to 5 people above themself on the list. For example #3 should PM his postal address to #2, #1, #18, #17 and #16. Don't post your address here!!

And if you plan to print more than 5 cards then just announce in the thread that you have freebies to take - I'm pretty sure somebody will volunteer to get one of those via a PM with their address.

When PMing your postal address please mind its formatting - put it in exactly same format as expected by your post office: different countries use different formatting and it can be painful to make sure that all is done correctly.

BTW, the unspoken agreement is that postal addresses exchanged by PMs will be used solely for the purpose of Dyxum Postards Exchange. Please mind privacy of fellow Dyxumers!
