DCAWD Secret Santa gift exchange, 12/20, Vinny's meet

Post by chicken n waffles » Mon Nov 19, 2007 11:19 am

hi all. this year DCAWD will hold its first DCAWD secret santa gift exchange! participation is optional, but highly encouraged. we have a meet on thursday, december 20th at vinny's in springfield, and will do the exchange over dinner. if you plan on making it to this meet and would like to participate, please post in this thread so i can set up a list. i (chicken n waffles, aka Ben) will collect the gifts during the outdoor portion of the meet and place them into a highly expensive, super extra spiffy, official DCAWD collection bag (probably a big, black trash bag). we will draw numbers from a hat, and pick in numerical order.

gift guidelines are as follows:

1) please wrap your gift.

2) while we don't want to tell people how much or how little to spend, $20 minimum, please. we don't want anyone to get short-changed.

3) car (or subaru) themed gifts are HIGHLY encouraged. we're a car club, after all. what better way to ensure that the person tearing into the gift you wrapped will enjoy it? :D

3a) no gag gifts. i doubt anyone wants a package of gummy nipples.

4) this will be a 'white elephant' style gift exchange. participants will pick a number from a hat and pick in numerical order. the first person will pick a wrapped gift from the pile and open it. the next person can either choose another wrapped gift or steal the first opened gift. you may choose another gift from the pile or steal someone else's gift (you may not steal back the gift that was just stolen from you). post-game trades are fine.

5) have fun!

Vinnys is located at:
6316 Springfield Plaza
Springfield, Virginia 22150

Link of map: here

any questions, comments, concerns, flames, please send me a pm. remember, this is an optional event (non-gifters are still welcome to attend the vinny's meet). again, post here if you will participate! i will be actively updating the list.

-Ben

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Which for you means words like 'evacuation', 'unknown substance' and 'blast radius'. :)
