Dinner, Awards, White Elephant Dec. 5
The BIKES Club Year-End Party and White Elephant Gift Exchange starts at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Members and their guests are invited to join us for a potluck dinner, rider miles awards, ride leader thank-you, and a white elephant gift exchange.
The Club provides ham for the main dish. Members bring their favorite appetizer, side dish or dessert to share. Also BYOB – bring your own beverages, alcoholic or non. Club will provide coffee and tea.
The party is at the club house at Carriage Club Estates, 13320 Highway 99 in south Everett. Member Warren Bare is our host, but we count on other members to help with set-up and cleanup before and after the event.
What is a White Elephant Gift Exchange? It's a chance to re-gift that attractive doo-dad that Aunt Martha gave you but doesn't suit your taste. Or that unattractive, crazy game your kids didn't take when they moved out.
Expect to see bike parts, accessories, and art, golf gear (we do have other interests), elegant household goods, and watch out for the "ice nudes" ice cube tray.
Wrap your gift up nicely, as we expect to play by some new rules this year. Santa Bill Weber will preside.
RSVP to Kristin at email@example.com by Wednesday, Dec. 2. We need to know you are coming so we bake enough ham!
