Two events that are of some importance...
Christmas get together on Dec. 22nd. The Mat(t)'s have generously offered their homes. I would prefer Duereden's parents house only in that it's closer (well, at least for some of us) and it will be a shorter distance for the guest I have in mind to travel (more on that in a second).
I think a starting time of around 6 pm would be good. Maybe bring easy party/snack type food, or maybe no food, come having eaten, or maybe we could chip in and get pizza.
I could bring the Wii, or not. We could play a game, or just chat. I really don't have an agenda, I just want everyone to have a good time, including the kids. I myself am stoked that Atti's going to be able to play with Elizabeth, Parley, Buda, Jackson, and any other children I perhaps don't know about.
NOW, here's the guest. A friend in my department is a professional face painter and said she'd be happy to come and paint the kids faces FOR FREE! Of course, I'd pass around an envelope, and collect some tips, and if anyone and everyone could pass on a few bucks that'd be nice. She's super talented and I think the kids would have a great time. Let me know if anyone/everyone wants this to happen.
Tuesday December 23rd. the 8th (I believe) edition of Football in Suits!
Pre-game warm up and social to start at 1 PM. Kick off at 1:30 pm.
If someone could make sure Kevin Chams knows, I haven't seen that guy in forever, and...sorta missed his wedding...so I'd like to catch up.
Three distinct possibilities...
Pros: Probably quite private
Creek to tackle Holmes into
pavilion to stash our stuff in
Lots of parking
Cons: No hint of academia.
kind of a funny location.
no eatery's around
lots of room
Cons: No hint of academia
no close eatery's
Field on the south side of campus (formerly the KMB)
Across the street from J-dawgs, and Smart Cookie
Cons: Parking (?) (There's an A lot right next to the field that will probably be deserted...)
Privacy (?) although 87% of the students will be long gone. There might still be slack jawed gawkers.
There's our options. I've put up a poll, please response and let your opinions be heard.
