We are currently in the planning stages for the First Annual MDFurs Holiday party. We are hoping to make this an annual event.
Location – Possibly at Wheels Skating center, but looking into rental halls.
Date – 2nd or 3rd weekend of Dec to try and not conflict with MFF or NYFB
Food – Catered (higher per person cost) or Potluck
Cost – Depends on how we’re doing food and location. Regardless there will be an event fee to help defray costs
Gifts – Secret Santa or White elephant exchange?
The white elephant is that everyone gets assigned a number when they drop of their gift. When we begin, #1 gets to go pick any gift. After they open it, #2 gets to either pick a gift, or steal a gift (in his case #1’s), #3 does the same, but can steal from 1 or 2. After a gift has been stolen 3 times, it is no longer eligible to be stolen again.
This continues on through all the people who have joined the exchange until the last person is done. After the last person is done, #1 has the option to keep their gift, or steal any gift still able to be stolen.
