we ask everyone that would like to participate in group meals to bring a dish for Sat morning brunch
at 9:30am or so, and then again for Sat evening dinner
that night at 5:30. No requirements, you bring what you can. Main dishes, dessert, breads wine, it's all good.
The only possible change may be no live music at dinner as some of us will be going to hear Three Dog Night next door in the ampitheatre.
The gift swap
is - bring an item to raffle off at dinner. If you bring one to donate you can get a ticket to get one.
It seems fairer that way then everyone getting a ticket and we run out of the gifts. These can be funny or serious, new or used and certainly don't have to cost much. It's been a hit in the past years....
Following brunch we have done a "Tour of Homes
" which has been fun too, but since many of us are regulars it's up to the crowd if we want to continue this.
