It's that time of year again!  The 9th Annual UG Secret Santa!
Here's how participate:

1. Send an email to me at: UGSecretSanta@gmail.com

2. In that email I'll need your REAL NAME, ADDRESS, and UG Screen Name.

3. I will then randomly select from the final list who will be a Secret Santa for whom.

4. There will not be a spending limit but in the past most people sent gifts in the $30 range. Popular gift ideas are Fight Team or MMA themed shirts, Fight DVDs, hats, books, etc.

5. THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT! Once you've signed up and sent me an email, come back to this thread and post your wish list along with your SHIRT / HAT / and SHORT SIZES and if there is a DVD or something you'd like to have. That way each Secret Santa can have an idea of what to get for their recipient. This will make it a little less hard to buy for a stranger.  DO NOT EMAIL ME YOUR SIZES AND WISH LIST.  POST THEM HERE ON THIS THREAD.  If you don't post your wish list and sizes, it's  your own fault if you get cardboard as a gift.  Also, posting here will let everyone see who's playing this year. Note: This is a very simple format. You sign up, you get a name and address, you purchase a gift and mail it or have it sent via the online company you purchased from. The entire process from the minute you get your recipient's info to the time of purchase could take as little as 15 minutes - if you do everything online. THERE'S NO NEED TO TAKE THREE WEEKS OR THREE MONTHS TO GET THIS DONE.  There is no need for anyone to wait beyond Christmas to receive their gift. So, if this is not that simple for you, for any reason, please don't register.
Again, if you sign up, Please - Please - Please honor your recipient and do your part. NO EXCUSES, NO MISHAPS. We are all adults... if you sign up, play right. I don't care about personal issues, work related drama, travel issues or other "life" problems. If you're dealing with any of these things, DON'T PLAY.  IF YOU REGISTER YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOU ARE WILLING AND ABLE TO DO THIS TASK WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.  We had almost 80 people last year and this is our 9th year, so let's keep the positive vibes going.  ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE AND SEND A GIFT, WITH NO PROBLEMS.   

*A quick thank you to those players from last year who stepped up and gave gifts to more than one recipient. You really helped a lot by picking up the slack of those who did not commit to their giving.


REGISTRATION: November 6th - November 18th.  That is plenty of time to get registered and it will give me time to get everyone their recipient info in time for you take advantage of Black Friday sales. It also leaves a full month to get your gifts purchased and sent so that EVERY PERSON GETS THEIR GIFT ON TIME FOR CHRISTMAS.

EXTRAS:
I love doing this but it takes a crazy amount of time to organize and keep running smoothly.  With that, I'm not going to take the time to babysit this event this year like I've done in previous years. This is a very easy process and with the right focus, you can be done with it quickly and enjoy being a part of UG holiday tradition. So here are some reminders: 
1. Post your sizes and wish list on this thread so your Santa will know what to send. If you have a person who does not list these things, buy them a book, a blue name or a gift card to the UG store. Keep it simple.
2. Once you get your recipient's info, make your purchase immediately, send it, and be done with it.
3. Please be sure that UGSecretSanta@Gmail.com is in your address book to prevent the spam filter getting it.
4. Secret Santa is an International event and last year we had 9 countries represented.  To keep shipping costs and timing down to a minimum I'm keeping countries together this year.  So all players will be shipping to other players within their own country.  Hopefully that helps smooth things out a bit, internationally.    
5.  I'll post more notes, tid-bits and info as I think of it. 

That's it! Thanks for playing and have fun. Happy Holidays, in advance.

Once you email me... all you have to do is wait.  At the closing of registration I will then organize the list and reply to you with the information of whom you'll be a Santa for.  Please don't email with questions about what to do or what to buy.  Read the directions above and keep it simple.  I have limited time to reply to nearly 100 people, especially when it comes to things that can be figured about by reading the original post.  

Thanks again.  I'm looking forward to another fun UG Holiday!

I've done this every year since 02' and I have given out some pretty good presents and got some pretty shitty ones. I keep doing it because I'm one of those weir people who loves Christmas and loves buying presents.

Of course I'm in again. Phone Post

I'm in! Size XL shirts, L/XL flexfit, 2XL hoodie. I don't trane UFC anymore, so no traneing gear plz. Somethin' classy please!

It really doesn't have to be MMA or clothing, anything interesting would be fine!!

If you order from Six Deuce for the Secret Santa, make sure you mention it in the comments!!! Order on Black Friday weekend, that's when gear will be the cheapest. I'm hooking SS gift recipients up with MMA.TV and #FranksFight stickers!! Also a discount code that can be used all next year! Also a free business card! BAM!

There are so many good gear companies out there but I want to give big props to SIX DEUCE.  62GEAR.com has supported this event and me personally over the last half decade.  Please consider them as your purchase place.

Osss!

Count me in again!

Shirt size is large, all I ask is no tapout or skulls or whatever.

I really don't care what I get, maybe something original, MMA related or not just whoever gets me don't spend too much.


If MMA related, Warrior One and Clinch Gear are 2nd to only Six Deuce
