Last November, we followed Amie Ortiz of Holbrook and her gang as they shopped from Thanksgiving night into the wee hours of Black Friday morning, scoring deals for the kids at Toys"R"Us, home goods at Kohl's, TVs at Target and lots of clothing at Smith Haven Mall.

This year, we're searching again for a reader who has what it takes to out shop even the most dedicated deal hunters on Long Island.

If Black Friday shopping is a tradition for you and your friends or relatives, we want to brave the crowds with you this year.
