    Who: All SBFF people
    What: Nth Annual Pre-Thanksgiving RISK Party
    When: Wednesday, November 21st 2012 7PM
    Where: xmaveric's house

    For the past few years, this is the only event we have done. The main reason it has been successful is that most of us get Thanksgiving off of work, so Wednesday evening we can stay up a little later than responsible adults should (childcare pending, of course.) Another big draw is you have a chance to win something... last year's door prize was a netbook!

    Previous Parties:
    2011 7th Annual (minutes)
    2010 6th Annual (minutes)
    2009 5th Annual (minutes)
    2008 4th Annual (minutes)
    2007 3rd Annual (minutes)
    2006 2nd Annual (minutes)
    2005 1st Annual (minutes)


    Please reply if you can make it, or plan on trying to make it.

    AGENDA:

    7PM: Meet & Greet & Eat. Three Barnaby's pizzas will be hot and ready at 7PM: Pepperoni, Sausage & Mushroom, and Cheese. Please bring a few $ to chip in. Bring your own drinks & snacks.
    8PM: RISK game starts. We will be playing the board game. Random territory selection for a fast start. Late attendees can play Nintendo or take over for a player that needs to leave before midnight.
    12AM: RISK game ends, regardless of status. Victor is decided by most continents owned. In case of a tie, territories will be counted.

    What's going on next year? Are you cheating on us with another Star Wars club?

    I have the day before ThanksGiving OFF,

    Hopefully, Grand Moff Wife, will let me come,

    more soon I hope.

    I will need the new address

    ref 2005 Annual event,

    you will find it hidden in a thread called

    SBFF Schedule

    Near the end pages, there is also a reference there to another thread,
    where the minutes to this historic first annuall event are,
    but, I am unsure how to use the data to find the info.

    more soon I hope :)

    I use this icon on all of my forums, and for my twitter feed. I'm a fan of machines who userp humanity for its own good.

    This is a conversation best reserved for a PM or its own thread, not our event thread.

    This is the real "hal" here :p

    Nothing wrong with people having identical icons, let alone similar ones. Let's keep this on topic please :)
