CAMS Christmas party!

  • Dec 14, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Tripp's Place

*Update*

Change of plans!  After speaking with Tripp about my plans he's offered up his home as the location for the party.  We'll be planning on cooking up food for everyone and if you'd like bring something to share as well please do.  In lieu of the location change, we've decided to hold the party on Saturday instead of Sunday.


Secret Santa will also be returning again this year so for those who wanna particpate get ready! Try not to spend more than $20 on a gift unless you feel extra Christmas-y.

    I'd like to personally thank everyone who helped with the Christmas event. You all know who you are, and I appreciate everything you did. It's thanks to your efforts that made the event such a success. I hope everyone that was able to attend enjoyed themselves. Soon we will all be moving into brand new year of CAMS. I am glad to be a member here and am honored to be among such outstanding people. Stay safe during the holiday.

      I found the Santa hat, but I'm not 100% sure I can make it to the meetup this Wednesday.

    We dont have parties like normal people in cams we play video games on ps3 monster hunter and pokemon on 3ds and play awesome dating sims! Glad to hang out with fellow nerds and have an great time. Thanks to tripp for providing his place cleaning up after everyone and providing food and drinks. Also special thanks to lewis alex julio andre aimari and anyone else that cooked made people drinks or cleaned and did things to make sure everyone else had a good time.

    Good news is that the rain should clear up some by 6. from what I saw on the weather channel, 6:30 should be clear of rain. Side note, if you want a ride to the party,just message me your address so I can pick you up. I also changed my mind on the whole 5$ thing. Filled up my car and have cash to spare.

    Are any of you guys allergic to pecans?
    Because my banana bread has them in it.
    And I'm bringing it to the party, and death would be bad on a christmas party.

      December 14, 2013

  • Patrick

    I'd like to come and meet some people if you aren't already too full. I can bring booze. Let me know if you're at capacity or would like me to bring food perhaps.

    December 11, 2013

    • Tripp

      We'll see how it goes. Mariel kind of has it set up as her cosplay work shop right now, so the space potential has decreased a bit.

      December 11, 2013

    • Patrick

      I'm going to have to miss it this year... I'll try to come to a viewing thing or something soon though.

      December 14, 2013

  • Tripp

    I've been informed some people have voiced they're crashing for the night. I already have people who have claimed the couches. I already know people who have planned with me from the beginning that they're staying over. I'd rather people be safe than drive home. If you're staying over, please let me know. Know that most likely you'll be sleeping on hardwood floors, so bring blankets and pillow, because I won't have enough for everyone. Matt says everyone can sleep in his room on his bed. When I say Matt, I mean I allow everyone to sleep in his room. XD

      Either one works for me lol. I've slept in a closet before.

    Just one more thing. I have a cat and dog. Just FYI.

    December 12, 2013

      I'm allergic, but as long as the cat isn't thrown at my eyes I'll be fine.

    Ok gang, change of plans. We've decided to change the party's start time to 6 pm. That'll give us extra time to get food prepared and such. Secret Santa event starts at 8pm.

    I think I'm going to cap it out at this point. This monster is just growing.

    December 11, 2013

    If I can make it I will. Wont know till Saturday morning. Here's hoping.

    First of all-- Hot Damn. I think this will be the largest turnout in a long time. So in light of everyone coming I have a disclaimer about parking at Tripps. His neighborhood has parking but chances are if you get there later you'll have to park faraway and will have to walk. So with that in mind if you live close to one another try and carpool to alleviate the congestion.

    I look forward to seeing all of you and remember your present Secret Santa players!

  • Cesaliscious P.

    I'm new here, but I would like to know if I could attend it, and maybe with a few friends? Though I saw you mentioned 21+. I turn 21 in september, and I won't drink if you don't allow it.

    This is subject to change. I most likely will go (showing up late due to work) bit there is a possibility that my hours will get switched.

    December 6, 2013

  • Izzy

    Dear lord, I miss you guys.
    I MAY be coming.
    And if I do, I will be bringing homemade Banana bread.
    Because Bananas are awesome. Also Because I'm the physical manifestation of the chinese year of the monkey.
    But mostly the first reason.

    Are we doing secret santa?...Are we allowed to bring food or no since its a restaurant? I was going to make a bunch of deserts for this holiday like I usually do. Like cake pops and pretzels dipped in chocolate etc.

      I assume it will have to be a white Elephant..there's really no way to draw names before this shin dig where everyone will be there.

      A former member

      Yeah, it'll be White elephant, much easier to deal with.

      December 3, 2013

  • Andre S.

    Question: If we are doing secret santa...where will we pick names?

    December 3, 2013

    • Tripp

      I think we're going the Bad Santa route a.k.a. White Elephant

      December 3, 2013

    • Alexander C.

      Yeah, so we'll be giving out numbers for all those that brought presents and go from there. $20 and below I believe is the arrangement, though anybody can do whatever. I already have several ideas of what I could do. ;)

      December 3, 2013

  • Tripp

    Please inform me if there is any kind of food you're restricted to eating or cannot eat. There will be alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available, so let me know if you have any specific drink or food requests. Due to having alcohol available, I'd like to keep this age 21+. I will have the grill going, and feel free to bring anything you'd like to contribute food or beverage-wise. There will be games and prizes as usual, and of course we'll have exchange of gifts. Keep safe until then guys. I'll be bringing this up at the December 4 meetup as well.
