    WHAT: The 1st Annual IEFF Christmas Party
    WHEN: The Afternoon of Saturday 2nd December
    WHERE: Jangosmom's Place in Victorville


    It's coming up to that time of the year folks for our christmas party. Jangosmom has offered her place to host this year's party. Come one, Come all!

    This will be potluck so add what you are bringing to the list.

    Potluck List
    AboutaSith - TBA

    White Wookie Gift Exchange
    Basically the same as a white elephant. Each person in attendance should bring a wrapped gift, ideally SW related, about $5-$8 in value. We'll go through the rules at the party to avoid any confusion.

    If you wanna wear a costume feel free to dress up and dont forget those santa hats!

    How many shopping days till christmas?

    You were out-voted on the gift exchange. It's a WHITE BANTHA gift exchange!

    Nope, the white bantha belongs to the SDSWS, we should create our own name. [face_not_talking]

    The bantha would never survive the walk from SD to the IE. [face_laugh]

    It's an insult to us wookiees though to refer to us in such a manner though... :p

    I'll volunteer to bring something store bought. Trust me, it's much safer for everyone that way! [face_worried]

    For starters, I'll bring soda. Will everyone please either post or PM me their favorite drink (non-alcoholic, or course)([face_plain]).

    I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what else will be needed and then bring that, too.

    Howdy all? Miss me JF? Since your guys' party is the weekend before ours, I'm thinking I should come out and join you guys. Of course I'll have to check my work schedule, but hopefully I can make it.

    Let's see...I can try to bring Costco rotisserie(sp?) if I can make it to the party?

    We will bring a casserole and my famous Wookie cookies. We also have a big cooler we will bring up to help keep things cool. We are driving 2 vehicles to the parade/Christmas party.

    I'll bring a couple of extra gifts so we'll have more to choose from. Also, is the gift supposed to be SW related only?

    Oh yea, I have an extra feathered pillow. Who's gonna bring the tar? End Quote

    Ideally I think it'd be cool to keep it Star Wars themed. I think we can all find some junk.....i mean great items to exchange. [face_devil] We also need to make sure we have enough so everybody gets on item each so we're aiming for an even nuumber of gifts.

    Who wants to be the quizmaster? I have a lowest score prize for this.

    If a person doesn't bring a gift, they don't participate. That's what we decided at the meeting. I'm bring a few extra so even the last person has a choice.

    Don't worry AaS, we got it all figured out!

    ok, since I wasn't at the meeting, I just want to clarify. Say, the parade gets over at 11am. Is everyone coming here then and hanging out till whenever? If that is the case are we having a brunch/lunch type thing and then if people are still here until evening we order pizza type thing? I'm fine with whatever.... I'm just wanting to make sure I have a clear picture of what's going on. We have the day open from early morning till early morning hours just for this group. Mark mentioned a movie marathon, so whatever people are up for, is cool on our end. Someone please clue in miss clueless here....please!?!:) Thanks!!!

    Yea, what you said. That's what we're doing! :D


    Seriously, I like the idea of having it be a brunch type thing. We can eat, have a quick meeting, do our gift exchange game and hang out. Those that can stay can game or do a movie marathon and order pizza.

    All in favor say, "Aye."

    All opposed... go away... no, wait, say, "Opposed."

    Aye.

    I'm for keeping the meeting very brief so we can have fun and hang out and get to know people.

    Only item I think we need for the agenda is arrange Jan's meeting and an event (Throw's suggestion of Coco's in Jan into the air). I've got a nice long list for Jan's meeting already.

    I'll bring something for food, and a gift.
    Does the gift have to be directly Star Wars related, or is general Sci-Fi acceptable. I'm just asking to clarify for those too scared to ask, not because I'd dare speak blasphemy... ;) [face_blush]

    Quiz

    Quiz Master is Darthsuperbatpooh. As he and I have the quiz prepared we'll be excluded from it. We dug one up that we created back in June! Bring a pencil!

    And DH, ideally Star Wars related but if you wanna stray into Sci Fi i'm sure whoever gets it will love what you find at dollartre...i mean Toys R Us. :p
