It looks like there will be a lot of people who can't make the meeting. One of the main topics will be the annual NR holiday party and gift exchange. Each of the past 3 parties, we have not had everyone's gift present and we had to scramble to make sure everyone had something to open. I understand that life is constantly changing and you never know what is around the corner, but there will be no scrambling this year. I need to know everyone's answers to the following questions prior to Saturday's meeting: 1. Do you plan on attending this year's party? 2. What date(s) are best for you? 3. Do you want to particpate in the gift exchange? 4. Should we draw names or everyone bring a gift and draw numbers to see who goes first to chose from all the gifts brought to the party?
