Default How to host a card swap

I know some of you have hosted swaps before so you dont need any pointers but I thought I would jot some down for our newer card swap hosts

If anybody has anything to add feel free to do so

How to host a card swap

1) Although you are co-hosting with a member of staff it is your responsibility to keep a list of the names etc. When the swap closes it is also your job to draw up the lists for each member participating and to distribute the lists in time for everybody to get their cards out.

2)Start by deciding on how long before the start of the swap you want to post the announcement. You can find the card swap template Here and always ask members to send their names to both hosts.
So if a swap is dated January 31st I would suggest posting it on or around the 1st January and asked for all the names to be in by the 14th January and explain that the list will be sent out on or around the 20th January. Thats gives everybody 10+ days to get their cards out.

3) There will usually be latecomers and there are quite a few of us that will happily take on latecomers so always get ready to keep a list of latecomers etc.

4) Once your lists are ready to distribute always send copies to your staff co-host. The staff keep a master list of all the swaps so if anybody needs any details checking we have them.

And always ask for help if you are stuck. The staff are all happy to help anyway they can. But most of all Have Fun

Like I posted in another board I think the postcard one, (sorry I'm in the middle of a 40 hour homework blitz) you gals use me how you need me. If you need someone to step in, don't be afraid to say, Becki and Ivy , we need you to do this one. You gals have helped us out, we are willing to do our part.

I would be willing to try hosting a small one to start off. Doing something big when I have no idea what I'm doing is scary and I don't want to mess up!

Just so everyone knows, I am available pretty much all the time. I don't work and my son is in all day pre-k so I'm available if you need me for anything. Christmas was my first card swap ever but I've been a "pen pal" for state and federal inmates, my entire life, starting with mom and dad. Unfamiliar with the prison system I am not........new to the support system, absolutely, but i am more than willing to learn.
