Wednesday, December 16 at 7:30 PM
Hosts: Bob and Susan Webber

The club via our host will provide drinks, cups, plates, napkins, and utensils. It’s pot luck so please bring a dish to share. It’s Bring Your Own Beer & wine.

As usual, we will have a gift exchange with the party. Please bring a gift for the exchange under $20.00. Everyone who brings a gift draws a number. The person who draws #1 then picks a gift, opens it, and shows it to the rest of the company. Then, in ascending numerical order, the participants choose to either pick and unwrap a new gift from the gift pile or “steal” a previously unwrapped gift. If a gift is “stolen”, the person who had their gift taken from them gets to pick from the gift pile or “steal” a gift from someone else. The turn then passes to the next number (if a gift was chosen from the pile) or to the person who was just robbed (if a gift was stolen). Gifts can only be stolen two times (the third owner is the final owner), and a gift can not be immediately re-stolen. When all the gifts have been opened, the game is over.

Camera club folklore tells of a gift so bad that it has been re gifted at our Christmas party for ~30 years. It disappears and is lost for years at a time, then suddenly reappears. That gift is the Pretty Neat Cosmetic Organizer.
