Trek The Halls with Galaxy Quest and more!

Christmas Party will be held at the Pioneer Ridge Clubhouse. This quaint but adequate space should be perfect for a group our size. We ask that you bring with yourself either a dish to share or $5-10 to help costs. Also we plan to have a White Elephant style gift exchange, so please also bring a wrapped gift with a value of $20 or less for each person attending. Humorous and Trek related items are always good, but whatever you feel would be fun to share with someone else would be perfect! Also this is a non-alcohol venue, and while our group is primarily adults, we just ask that you keep in mind that some minors may be present and participating, and are welcome.

    I was excited to see that almost everyone joined us for Christmas Spirit and I really enjoyed watching Galaxy Quest with good friends. A great night all around :-)

      Trekapoloza! Yup it was only earlier this year. We met you and Joey there, it's been great finding a group we fit into and enjoy the people and their company!

    I will bring a couple of pies, one regular banana cream and one banana cream with peanut butter and chocolate.
    I just joined this group about a month ago, but have been friends on Facebook with Steven Black for quite awhile. It will be nice to finally meet him, and the rest of you too.

      sounds great! i am providing a very special dessert, so with pies and my dessert, we should have plenty of sweets. well is there ever enough sweets? Not for me! LOL. Looking forward to meeting you Rebecca.

      December 9, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      the pies were delicious! I am quite glad you and Dave came and met us all, I hope you join us for more Meetups!

    Grab a bake-at-home pizza, or Family-Size Lasagna, etc. and a 2-liter bottle of soda. I know money is tight and no one wants to blow their Holiday budget. That said, unless we're going to put all the food burden on our hosts, we need to pitch in now. And JOEY (and his hummus) NEEDS a RIDE! :-)
    and I'm very sorry to say I'm not going to be able to come - I screwed up my back putting up our tree. I'm just shouting from the sidelines now. :-(

    • Daniel D.

      sorry you were unable to join us, but I did catch the Monte Cristo reference this time around, and I wasn't even looking for it. anyways Missed you and hope to see you at an event all healthy in the near future!

  • Ilana L.

    Since we had Lisa bail (hope your back gets better, dear) I picked up the plates, napkins, cups, and soda. Still bring a huge tray of turkey wraps, veggies, and fruit tray with dips. I may need help unloading my car.

      thanks for taking care of all that Ilana, a real party saver! B-)

    I had a blast. Or is that a blaster? I forgot how funny that and fun the movie was. Great to see it with my people! Thanks to Jenn and Daniel for hosting the event.

    Can anybody give me a ride from downtown Portland (NW 10th and Hoyt, in the Pearl)? My ride fell through. I can pay for gas.

    Hi Everyone, It's been pretty quite on the thread about what food is being bought tomorrow and I was hoping could post (again) what they are planning to bring. I know we need drinks, main dishes and snack type foods. Desserts are covered :-).

    I can't wait to see you all tomorrow.

    ~Jen

    December 13, 2013

    • Chad P.

      What kind of main dish? We typically bring crappy delicious food to our meet ups so I'm not used to "main dishes" ;-)

      December 13, 2013

    • Jennifer D.

      Crappy delicious food sounds good :-p

      December 14, 2013

  • Ilana L.

    Can anyone use 3 tickets for the Hobbit tonight at 8:30? Van Mall Cinetopia (living room +21) not 3D. Email me [masked]

    December 13, 2013

  • Lisa D.

    Ooops, never mind. Cancel Yellow Alert. So sorry. eek

    1 · December 11, 2013

  • Lisa D.

    Ummmm, Yellow Alert here. Does anyone else have a DVD of "Galaxy Quest"? Anyone who's giing to Daniel & Jenn's on Saturday night.
    Please email me via Mwetup or post here. Thank you very much?

  • Charles F. R.

    i will probably not attend since there are two other events this day, a Steampunk Train Ride in the afternoon and then in the evening is the Portland Geek Council annual formal, which is 21+ only :-)

    December 8, 2013

  • Caren L.

    We live in Eugene so frequent attendance at an event will be challenging. I am just happy to know that so many others are in love with Star Trek as well! Hope to meet some trekkers here in Eugene!

    for the white elephant exchange I've 'crafted' something. is that okay?

    December 7, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      Of course it is... :-)

      December 7, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      let me take this opportunity to elaborate on the White Elephant Gift. It can be really anything you want it to be, I hope it will be creative and fun, and either something someone will want to use in some manner, or something to make people laugh. Obviously Trek related stuff is encouraged, but certainly not expected. It can be crafted, brand new, or even used. There will be a fun exchange and hopefully it will be part of that fun, even if it is a humorous "dud" gift, it can be a lot of fun. We have a$20 top limit, but it is not expected that you spend $20, or anything really, just wrap it and see what happens.

      1 · December 7, 2013

  • Ilana L.

    I will bring a fruit tray and a veggie tray with dips. Also bringing a turkey wraps tray. I hardly cook anymore, but I am a good shopper.

    3 · December 7, 2013

  • Daniel D.

    SO...with this party a week away, I think it is certainly time to finalize a few things so we are prepared. Let me first say that while we have had a couple minors along from time to time on events, this meetup group is primarily an adult group, so I ask that if you are planning on bringing any pre-teen or younger kids with you that you contact me directly by message so we can be sure this is an appropriate fit for you. We do tend to be fairly adult in our conversations and I would hate to have people feel uncomfortable being themselves or with the subject matter at hand.
    Pioneer Ridge Clubhouse is located at the apartment complex where I live, so please be aware this is a private event and if you haven't actually met someone from this group at a previous event, please contact me as well.

    • Lisa D.

      Bravo Daniel - very nicely put!! :-)

      December 7, 2013

  • Lisa D.

    What Daniel said! Count on me for crab dip + crackers, eggnog and napkins, cups, utensils, etc. C'mon everyone - just post "snack chips" or"veggie plate", "assorted cheesse & crackers", ,"hot dish", (not limited to), whatever!. It sounds like napkins, cups, plates, etc. are covered.
    Daniel I'm bringing soda & bottled water - are we good on drinks?

    December 7, 2013

  • Lisa D.

    It would be lovely to hear a "Hellooo" from the newbies we haven't heard much from yet - Rebecca and Jon H.! Hello to Rebecca & Jon! I'm certainly looking forward to meeting you on the 14th at Daniel & Jennifer's. Welcome!!

    2 · December 7, 2013

  • Daniel D.

    As for food and stuff. I would ask that in this thread you let us know how you plan to participate. Are you planning to bring some financial aid to the affair or bring food to share? If you are bringing food, please let us know here what type of dish you plan to bring, so we can get an idea. We do not need specifics, but let us know if you are bringing a dessert item, a main course item or a side dish.

    1 · December 6, 2013

  • May

    I will bring fresh baguette and brie (maybe some smoked meat.) If I have time, I'll bring cake or cupcake. Daniel I can pick up some paper plates and napkins from the dollar store...should i grab some?

    1 · December 5, 2013

    • May

      let's get a number of hands who will be donating to the event instead of bring food. we can call in for pizza with the cash!

      1 · December 6, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      thanks for reminding me i do want o organize this a bit more specifically and have just been busy as all get out, being a mailman and all this time of year leaves little free time.

      December 6, 2013

  • Lisa D.

    Bringing a hot, fresh crab dip, crackers, a large bowl of (unspiked. :-P ) eggnog & soda + accroutrements. Sorry - no chili this time.

    1 · November 29, 2013

  • Murrianna

    I would have loved to have attended but I've a previous engagement that entails a financial interest. Have some fun for me!

    2 · November 19, 2013

    • Daniel D.

      I am sorry you are unable to attend, but we shall see you soon somewhere else I am sure.

      November 23, 2013

    • Lisa D.

      Well dangit, Murriannaa! I'll miss seeing you, although "financial interest" is understandably more immediate and tangibly compelling than an evening with this scruffy lot. ;-) . Take care and Happy Holidays!

      November 29, 2013

  • Jennifer D.

    We can't wait to host this event :-)

    2 · November 18, 2013

  • Steven B.

    I think this will be a fun event. I look forward to meeting new Trek fans.

    3 · November 17, 2013

    2 · November 17, 2013
