I'm sure that many of you will be participating in the PCTB5 - our great box of goodies that travels around this great country to your home.

But what about all the excess samples, those not in the top picks by participants or those with maybe not enough to last in a travelling box? The sort of things in here -



Well over the course of 2019 this box, or something like it, will be making its way around the P&C Meet Ups across the country.

Come to the Meet Ups and you will be able to walk away with up to three samples from the Sample Box.

If you are organising a meet up let me know so we can make sure that the sample box comes your way!

The idea is that it is sent around to the meet ups this year so that participants can take up to three samples to keep with them - on the following conditions:
  • they write some sort of review - even some comments in a SOTD post would be sufficient,
  • samples taken can NOT be the same producer, in other words somebody cannot take two Mystic Water samples in a particular round for example.
The 'host' of the box will obviously get first look and be able to take up to five samples. The caveat is that you hold the box and be prepared to either post back or post to the next meet up. I'll cover the actual postage costs on request.

BTW - I had to select a prefix - but this is NOT just for CBR

This is a perfect opportunity to arrange a Sydney meet up date.
My wife and daughter will have their own meet up on the day of the next meet as daughter has discovered a new dress shop in Newtown.....sigh.
Mark, I can pick up the box at the next Canberra gathering and drop it off at the Sydney meet, if you think I can be trusted with the goodies.

That would be fine - but Adelaide might get in first!

I helped myself to small bottle of scent and a couple of soap samples from the box on Saturday - the scent was labelled "Vintage Herbal Cologne", if memory serves.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what brand it is?

Oh dayum!!! Vintage Shulton! No wonder I liked it.

I would be happy to forward it on in the future so you can smell it too, @RustyBlade
Thank you & generous but think I'm covered as below. Wear it proudly and enjoy (y)
I'll pop another sample in the box :)
Thank you esquire. But me thinks it may not get to Sydney for awhile.

@astinus4 appears to have taken on the mantle of NT organiser, and has arranged a Darwin meetup at the end of the month with a few P&C lurkers and myself. But as it's on 21st Feb I think we might be too late to arrange it's safe arrival up here?

Well done @astinus4 !

The box is currently on its way to the 10 February ADL meet up - surely we have have it in the mail from ADL to DRW to arrive by 21 February?
