The White Elephant Gift Exchange
will be on Tuesday, June 28th at 5:00 p.m.
in the BBQ Pavilion
. This has become the “Unofficial Game of the MOC” and it’s lots of fun!!
desiring to play should bring a wrapped gift valued at $15-$20
. It can be a lovely gift or something really fun and outrageous, but let's try to make them useful in some way and valued at the suggested price. Participation is optional, but you will miss out on a lot of 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 Clubhouse. 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 one from all the wrapped gifts and must open it immediately. No touching the gifts before selecting.
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 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 becomes quite hilarious to see what gifts folks have brought and to see what gifts become "in demand" by everyone.
If you haven't ever participated in a White Elephant Gift Exchange, you are in for a treat!
