FESTIVUS 6!

  • Dec 8, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • The Home of Rick Wingrove and Ellen Birch

Join us on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012 for our 6th Annual Festivus Party!

There will be live music, good food, and plenty to drink. While our adherence to Festivus traditions may be a little lax, our adherence to our stated goal of More Fun, Less Drama will be strictly observed.

Festivities will start at 6:00 and live music will start around 8:00ish.

No need to bring anything. There will be lots of food, served buffet style. Beer, wine, soda, water, coffee, and some liquor will be provided. Special needs drinkers can BYO.

Ellen Wingrove will host a wine tasting of inexpensive wines.
Larry  Mendoza will do the same with assorted beers.

Music will be provided, as in years past, by the incomparable Willem Dicke, our resident atheist musician.

So, be there or hear about it later !!

The cost per person is $25, which is a tax deductible donation to Beltway Atheists, Inc.

Additional donations are always welcome and encouraged to support our activism (the Leesburg Courthouse displays and legal costs come to mind!).


Be sure to RSVP for the number of people in your party, or have them RSVP individually. Go to the pay online button to pay $25 for each person in your party.

We prefer online payments with your RSVP, but if you can't pay online, you can pay at the door. RSVP here and call or email Rick Wingrove to let us know:

    Wonderful party, I really enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting new folks as well. My husband really enjoyed the beer tasting that Larry hosted.

    Damn, I can't believe I totally spaced on this! For whatever reason, it wasn't on my calendar and so I completely forgot. I'm kicking myself all the way across the room. Rats, I hope you all had a blast and sorry I wasn't there to participate.

      Joe, so sorry, we missed you! I can refund your payment, or keep it as a donation, which you can write off. Let me know what you want to do - Ellen

      No, please keep it as a donation! BTW, you were very powerful last Tuesday!

    We have a late addition so instead of 2 we will be 3 people and will pay for the 3rd person at the door. See you there!

    Can't wait. I want to know if I can add a plus 1. He's my best friend of many years who comes from a very religious family and has only recently come out. He'll also be paying at the door if that's ok.

    December 5, 2012

    • Larry

      That should not be a problem. :)

      December 5, 2012

    • Rick W.

      No problem.

      December 5, 2012

  • Andrea

    Hope it's OK to be late, we won't be able to make it until 8:30 pm or so. On the plus side, we live right around the corner, apparently :-)

    December 1, 2012

    • Rick W.

      We won't be watching the clock, so come when you can. Are you in Leesburg?

      December 1, 2012

    • Andrea

      We are on Riverpoint Drive - just past Merchant Mill so yes, literally around the corner :-) Just moved here last spring. Looking forward to meeting people!

    I can't wait, unfortunately I'm no good with paypal, cash at the door ok?

    December 3, 2012

    • Rick W.

      Cash at the door is fine.

  • Karl H.

    Ended up paying with PayPal.

    I'll be paying at the door, for two.

      Scratch that. Decided to pay online. See y'all there!

      November 13, 2012

  • Ellen W.

    Don't forget to pay online or let Rick know you will pay at the door!

  • Ellen W.

    Dress is whatever makes you most comfortable. Most folks dress up a little for the occasion.
