December Monthly Meeting and White Elephant Exchange

  • Dec 16, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The holiday season is upon us yet again, which sounds like a good excuse for us to skip the crowds at the mall and to instead meet for a well-deserved post work bite and beer to discuss everyone's favorite topic: hiking!! As always, this is a great opportunity for new members to meet your fellow hikers, several of the hike leaders, and to get a brief overview of the group and how it works.

Speaking of the holidays, that also means that it is time for the 3rd somewhat annual PHMG White Elephant Gift Exchange. Bring a wrapped gift to add to the pile and you will receive a ticket. Once the exchange begins (about 7:15pm), we will draw numbers and the person whose number is called will have the option to either take a gift from the pile and open it up for all to see, or to steal a gift from someone else, with the caveat that any given item can only be stolen 3 times. If an item is stolen from you, you will have the option to grab another gift from the pile or to steal from someone else.

Here are the "rules" for the gifts: they do not have to be hiking related, and if you are planning on buying something for the exchange don't spend more than $15-$20 on it: keep it cheap !!

Let the merriment ensue :-)
