It is my intention that it keeps moving along. Should it stall, I will ask that it be returned to me until a new member steps up. Smiles, MH

That makes perfect sense!

Pompiere 08-17-21 03:08 PM

I received the package from Reco Very last thursday and took some time over the weekend to sort through it. The Box O' Crap is now ready to go to the next recipient, but I don't know who that is. I can hold the box here for a while until someone steps up.

I forgot to take an unveiling picture, but here is my take:

The Box 'O Crap has been received by the last volunteer on the list. If you want to play the game it is time to sign up! For the $21 to ship it to the next participant every visit brings a bunch of new items for players to pick through and keep. Probably the best value grab box in the cycling world. Please step up and be recognized. Smiles, MH

Bump for new crap volunteers. MH

I have to pause for a bit before I can get back in line. We bought a second house in the Hudson Valley which is being remodeled, and half my crap is there. Until the dust settles I'll be a voyeuristic lurker.

Just the other day I was wondering if the BOC was still a thing.

Mad Honk 08-18-21 05:46 PM

I am assuming you want to be put on the list??? You can move to the front of the line right now. Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 08-26-21 06:56 PM

Pompiere,
It appears we have reached a point where there are no Crapateers stepping up to receive the Box O' Crap. It is unfortunate but it is where we are. I can only ask that you send the box to me for keeping and some refurbishing before it begins it's travels again. I will do the repairs to the box and clean the contents as is possible and prepare it for a renewed beginning when we have a few folks who step up. Thanks to all of the Crapsters who have participated thus far and hoping we have more who come forward in a short time. Smiles, MH

I have to work all weekend, so I'll send it out Monday unless someone comes forward. Thanks for taking charge.

I'll give the BOC another go. I've had it twice before and was able to both take and give some interesting items. If Mad Honk shall honor me with another pull of the lever, I'll PM you my details, Pompiere .

Mad Honk 08-27-21 08:05 AM

hokiefyd,
thanks for stepping forward. Smiles, MH

So how is this game played?

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?) This is a USPS large flat rate box, with a current shipping cost of $19.95. This just the current price and likely to go up, so your actual cost could be more. If you receive a box that's falling apart, please pick up a new one from the post office-they're free! Also note that this B.O.C. game is only available to those within the USPS flat rate region. Sorry in advance for those C&V forum members that can't play!
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. Bonus if you photograph the take parts once mounted or used, even if it is a long time before you use it. Not a requirement, but I think this might enhance the thread and I know I would enjoy seeing a part I contributed getting used.
11. Players must have 150 posts or more. This, of course, is to facilitate PMing to pass/receive mailing addresses. 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 .
12. 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).
13. 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 $19.95 (subject to change in accordance to current postal rates) 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.
14. If you take more than 10 days to ship the box, you're banned for life. Right now we’ve got Ultraspontane, Road2you, and mtnbke on this list. I hope not to add anyone else.
15. PM the next person in line (don't ask me!) for a ship to address. Don't post it here, respect everyone's privacy.
16. If you're on deck, in the hole, or otherwise getting close to your turn, and you know you're going on vacation, have to drive the kids to college, or have temporary crap going on, you can post here or PM the CrapMaster (me), and I'll move you down the list a bit on the sly based on what you feel you're more comfortable meeting your BOC responsibilities. I won't make you get to the end of the line. The list is not writ in stone, I can copy and paste with the best of 'em.
17. When requesting a new place in line, please let the Crapmaster know the number of times you have played.
18. Please don't take photos of address labels on the box or post tracking info publicly to respect everyone's privacy. I don't think anyone does this intentionally, but we just want to remind everyone. For tracking info, please limit to private messages.

Okay! Now that I have created a fresh thread to end the Seventh Edition of the Box O’ Crap, Series Eight will begin.

“One word: KARMA. Make sure you do the right thing so the Karma you get is the kind you want.”

Thusly :)

:thumb: I'll get it out on Monday.

Mad Honk 08-27-21 06:33 PM

DonTx,
When you have the required post numbers let us know and we can include you in the game. You are really close so post a few more times. Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 08-27-21 06:39 PM

Looking for a few more good folks to step up and become Crap-A -Teers. The box always has some stuff in it that bike folks need or want for a bike or build along with some useful stuff in the folder of catalogues or stickers etc. that are in the box. The community is always looking for new members to join in the fun. Smiles, MH

P!N20 08-28-21 02:14 AM

Love to play, but, y’know, Australia.

jdawginsc 08-28-21 06:22 AM

Mad Honk

Even though it’s only been a few months really, if no one new steps in, I can be used as a surrogate 💩 recipient and re-pooper. We need to keep the intestinal flow.

Let me know if my services are needed.

hokiefyd 09-02-21 06:05 AM

The box has landed at Casa de Hokiefyd. The unboxing has commenced.

the sci guy 09-02-21 11:27 AM

Wish I could step up, but I've got no active builds and I'm trying to unload 2 vintage bikes at the moment as well to no avail. Also I may be laid off next week so there will be no bike money...

Hopefully in the future again though! Love seeing the pics here, and always make me jealous what I'm missing lol

hokiefyd 09-04-21 07:09 AM

I'm planning to have the crap ready to ship on Monday (still making final selections and cramming my crap in). jdawginsc I wasn't sure if you were volunteering to master the crap or simply be the next post stop on its way around this beautiful country. Please PM me your details if you'd like the box next.

Mad Honk , FYSA.

jdawginsc 09-04-21 03:56 PM

I am definitely not ready for crap leadership, but I thought I might extend the crap and take the box again for poops and giggles.

PM with info

Mad Honk

Crapsters,
We have a new volunteer. Nwvlvtnr has stepped up and wishes to be added to the list. Hokiefyd, if you have not moved the box along yet please contact him. Smiles MH

hokiefyd 09-09-21 04:53 AM

The crap-filled box is on its way to jdawginsc who will do his thing and then forward to Nwvlvtnr. My greedy take is pictured below. The box was still full after that, though I did manage to fit some more parts in still.

The 💩 has landed! Will sort through and get it on its way to Nwvlvtnr !
