TA Backpacks - what do you have to do to get one?

I know this has been mentioned in previous threads - I've also seen

them discussed in the Orlando forum. My question is - does anyone know exactly what qualifies one for a TA backpack or are recipients chosen at random? I know I'm a relatively new contributor but people who have made fewer contributions than me seem to have been honoured with one!

Perhaps I am being punished for some (dare I admit it) 'troll' like comments I have made in the past. Although I have resolved not to make such comments again - I promise.

Can anyone shed light on this for me ...... please!!!!

I don't know anyone outside of America who has got one.

I got one, but I haven't the foggiest idea why I was selected.

Don't worry - you're not missing anything special. It's not really a backpack, more like a thin shoe bag.

I've been promised a TA luggage tag for updating my "About Me" page. I'll trade it for a backpack, if anyone's interested...

This is reminding me of Orwell and animals.

Bobelinks--Two backpacks, or two luggage tags? If it's backpacks then clearly you have been mistakenly given mine.

Bobelinks kindly sent me his extra one when I asked him nicely!

Not seen what they look like but hopefully FD will bring it along to the Edinburgh meet next month to it show off.

"I don't know anyone outside of America who has got one."
