Good evening to everyone in C&V land
The latest edition of the BOC has gone south once again. C'est la vie. This afternoon I was going through all my bike-related stuff and came up with a pile of stuff (I can't honestly call most of it crap). I realized it would probably all fit in a $15.95 USPS Flat Rate Box. Whoa - who'd have thunk it, right?
Andycapp was the next intended recipient after the box's last known owner. Andy lives just down the road, in the rainy state of Washington. I have already contacted him and am awaiting his mailing addy. I may very well have that by tomorrow and if so will ship the box tomorrow as well.
This was the list as it stood (beginning with Andy) on the first page of the last BOC thread:

Note: if you no longer want to be on the mailing list, please let me know and I will remove you. This is important so as not to hold up the box while someone is trying to PM you for your mailing address
If you want to be added, post to the thread and I will update the list here in this first post. See Rules below for the one eligibility requirement.
Rules (this is important):
1. If you can't abide by the rules, please don't play
2. Ship within 5 working days of receipt of box (if you're on the list, you should have some crap ready to be put into the box - right?)
3. Remove only crap you intend to use yourself
4. Do not remove crap to sell to somebody else
5. Do not remove crap to pass to somebody else
6. Try to put in as much or more crap than you remove
7. Report receipt via this thread upon receipt (same day shouldn't be too difficult - we're all addicted to this forum and most post daily. Don't suddenly disappear once the box makes it to you). Report via this thread when you've sent the box on to the next member as well.
8. Photograph the box contents as received (not a completely-revealing photo - just the box open and the crap on the top of the pile) and post (this thread is worthless without pics and all that...)
9. Photograph what you took out, but not what you put in - it's supposed to be somewhat of a surprise.
10. Players must have 150 posts or more. This, of course, is to facilitate PMing to pass/receive mailing addys. Additionally, if you're serious enough to post this many times, you're part of the community and much less likely to be jumping onboard just to get some free crap
11. Please, no completely worthless, borked crap (unless, of course, it's a cat-toy or has a string tied around it signifying its use as a small boat anchor).
12. ***New Rule*** RaleighSport has been kind enough to design and produce a decal to commemorate the BOC game (see page 22 , post #537 for details). Please limit yourself to a maximum of two decals from the envelope enclosed in the Box.
13. ***New Rule*** Ultraspontane has unwittingly prompted us to add the following guidance: The BOX OF CRAP is a CRAPSHOOT and you may not like the CRAP in the BOX. There may be absolutely nothing in the box of any value to you. Even if this is the case, you will still be expected to spend $16 to mail the BOX OF CRAP on to the next person. If you aren't ok with that, don't play the game; it's that simple, really.
Okay! Shall we try again? There's some really good crap ready for launch
*** Update, 18 SEP 2012 *** Take 5 has become necessary due to Ultraspontane dropping off the face of Bike Forums Classic & Vintage and along with him the most recent incarnation of the BOC, last filled with goodies by our pal GlennFordx4. Iowegian stepped up to the plate to fill yet another new BOC with the requisite crap; that box is on its way to photogravity as he was the next intended recipient.
So, the rotation stays the same, but the old box is history. I apologize on behalf of Ultraspontane to those of you who put stuff in the previous BOC in good faith, only to see the entire box appropriated by one person.
One word: KARMA. Make sure you do the right thing so the Karma you get is the kind you want
See Page 25 for the re-birth of the box.
