WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE
The White Elephant Gift Exchange/Finger Food Feast will be held on Tuesday, June 16 at 5:00 p.m. at the Club House. For those that have never experienced the White Elephant Gift Exchange before, be prepared to have a fun evening with lots of laughs.
At 5:00 the evening will begin with the Finger Food Feast. Please bring a dish to share (appetizer type stuff). Plates, napkins and forks will be provided. Please bring your own drinks of choice.
Each rig that wants to play should bring a wrapped gift valued at $15-$20.It can be something you might want yourself or something really fun and crazy, but hopefully useful in some way and definitely valued at the suggested price range. Participation is optional, but you will miss out on a lot of fun and laughs if you don't play.
Don't tell anyone what you brought!!!
Each rig will be given a number when they deliver their gift to the Club House. The order of play will be determined by a random draw of numbers from a can. The rig holding the matching number gets to pick a gift.
The first number pulled goes up and picks a gift from all the wrapped gifts and must open it immediately. No touching the gifts before selecting one.
The second number pulled has the option to take the first gift that was unwrapped, or they can take a wrapped gift. If they take a wrapped gift, they must also open it immediately.
The third number pulled has the option to "steal" a gift from the folks ahead of them, or they can pick a wrapped gift.
If a gift is stolen, the person who has had their gift taken can take a gift from another person or pick another wrapped gift and open it immediately.
A gift can only be stolen once each round.
A gift can be stolen three times, but upon the third steal, it becomes that person's and is no longer part of the play.
This goes on until every rig has taken a gift. At that time, the first rig has the opportunity to swap their gift for any of the gifts still in play.
It is fun to see what gifts folks have brought and to see which gifts become "in demand" by everyone.
Again, be prepared for an evening of laughter and craziness!!!!
