Attention Willamette Valley Grotto and Oregon Grotto cavers! (and any other cavers wishing to attend...)
The WVG has secured the "Island Cafe" for one of the nights that the Christmas ships will be coming by!...
You are invited (with your guest/s) to the combined OG/WVG Christmas Party Friday, December 16th (the normal meeting night for the OG), at a very special location!
Our party will be at The Island Cafe on Hayden Island / Jantzen Beach. The owners of the Cafe have graciously allowed us, again, to use their famous restaurant (now closed for the winter season) for our OG/WVG Christmas Party! AND..., this is the same night that Portland's famous Christmas Ships will be performing right in front of the Cafe (just 25' away!).
We will start the party at 7 pm. This is a Potluck Party. Please bring a dish you can share with the group and please bring serving utensil/s for your dish! Also, bring your own drink. We'll supply paper plates, plastic silverware, cups and napkins.
After you've decided what you can bring - please post it on the WVG and OG Group Servers so that we can all see what's being brought - It'll help prevent overlap of food choices. Also, please don't stress out over your food item - bring something nice, if you can & post if you can. It's most important for you to show up and join in the fun!!!
The Christmas Ships will go by, roughly, 7:30 - 8:30pm.
Both Grottos will each have their meetings afterwards (WVG with elections).
And lots of socializing!
And, we will have a Round Robin gift exchange. Max. price $10 - $15, It would be cool if we could each find 'cave related' gifts but that could be tough so just bring a gift that you feel another person would like to have! The official rules for the Round Robin are below.
