Yankee Swap / White Elephant Gift Exchange Dinner

Update:

We'll be meeting at Sliders on gorge street. I'll be around the entrance until a few members get there, after that just give me (Chris) a call. [masked] ... I'm going to ask if we can sit down stairs but I don't know if they'll allow it.




Yankee Swap / White Elephant Gift Exchange

In honer of the holidays lets all get together and have dinner around New Brunswick and do a gift swap. Of course normal swaps are boring so I think it would be more fun to do a White Elephant exchange.

The objective of a White Elephant Gift Exchange is to open, exchange and steal fun gifts from your "friends". Everyone must bring a small (pocket sized) unique, humors, obnoxious or tacky wrapped gift worth less than $10. Nobody should know which gift you brought so don't put your name on it! It should be an item that would appeal to multiple people.

On the first turn, the first person chooses a gift and opens it. On the second turn, the second person gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift or choosing a wrapped one. On the third turn, the third person again gets the choice of "stealing" any unwrapped gift or choosing a wrapped one. Game continues based on the following:

1. - If a gift is stolen from you, you can steal a gift from someone else, or open a new one.
2. - Turns proceed until everyone has a gift. A turn is ended when a gift is opened and admired by everyone.
3. - A gift cannot be stolen more than once in a turn.

Members that do not bring a wrapped gift will be asked to leave (let's face it, this won't work unless we have a decent amount of players). Do not RSVP "yes" until your committed to coming. I'll post our exact meeting location when I have a better feel for how many people are attending the event. That location will be somewhere in downtown new Brunswick.

    I picked Tuesday because there should be less of a crowd around and there's a lot establishments that run specials on that day too.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
