For the last couple of years now we have combined our party with Chapter 441. Since that was so much fun they will be joining us again. This will be in lieu of our December meeting.
This is a pot-luck meal event. The chapters will provide meat, beverages and dinnerware. Experience has shown that it's no use trying to "assign" food categories. If we all bring deserts, we'll fill up on desserts. If we all bring salads, everyone will eat salad with their meat and drink. Please bring a side, or a salad, or dessert to share (or all three if you want). Just bring something you like to eat, and enough to share. Because this is a family event, we ask you to please leave any alcohol at home.
Chapter 441 has a traditional ‘White Elephant’ gift exchange and so we will be adding that to our party. The rules committee is finalizing the rules, but essentially this is how it works: everyone who wants to participate brings a wrapped gift. This should be an aviation-themed article. In the past we've seen tools, books, ornaments, doo-dads, even aviation-oriented junk (er...treasures). For some, the ultimate satisfaction is to provide the most coveted of the gifts, something unique that others might find they can't live without. The gift need not be "new". If you feel you must purchase something, keep it inexpensive: we've used $10 as a target in the past. But it need not be "new". Don't feel a need to go out and buy something. When the time comes, the first person will open a gift and show what they've got. The next person then has the option of taking what the first person opened, or selecting another wrapped gift to open. If someone loses a gift to a
subsequent person, they get to select a new one to open. And so it goes: each person has the option to select(steal) an already opened gift or select a wrapped one. The rules committee will announce their final rules about how many times a particular gift can be stolen, etc. It's great fun.
