This is where we post for the necessary evil in all exchange fests...pinch-hitters. Things happen, people have to drop out because of family stuff/get sick/had the nerve to tell a cat it was ugly and are now laid up in traction in hospital somewhere with only half their face left/etc.
Throwing your hat in the ring for this doesn't mean that you are 100% committed to the fest. We may not even need you, but this simply lets us know that if we're in a bind, you are available to help out (sometimes very last minute). Should we need you, we would pair you up just like we do the other assignments, so no worries about being asked to do something beyond your comfort level. Additionally, if you did not make the lottery, you are welcome to sign up here!
Depending on when we may need you, we will do our very best to make sure that you get a gift in return for all your hard work! However, please note that if we call on you very last minute, we may not be able to guarantee one (though, really, I don't think we've ever NOT been able to gift a pinch-hitter).
Because of the nature of pinch-hitting, please be as thorough as you can in the for the gift you will be giving section. This is where vague sign-ups aren't of much use to, well, anyone. If you say "anything" we will take you at your word!
Lastly, please be brutally honest about how long it would take you to fulfill a request should we need you - we have had some very last minute dropouts in the past, and even with the new rules this year, a last minute dropout still means you may only have a week or so to complete it (if it were someone who dropped out after being given an extension, for example).
OH WAIT ONE MORE THING - if you sign up, we will still always ask first before rolling you into the fest! So don't feel like if you sign up now that you are 100% tied to do what we throw at you. We understand that while you may foresee having the time right now, something could change in the next few months. So rest assured that we will ask first to make sure that you are still available when the time comes.
