It is a gift exchange. To participate you must bring a wrapped gift no names. Then through a process of site numbers pulled from a hat you are given a gift you then open your gift for all to see! The next person pulled from the hat does the same thing. However People are allowed to steal a gift from anyone else and giving there gift to that person. See previous years of explanations in the past rallies. We have had gifts, everything from a roll of duct tape to electrical tape, flamingo items food drink etc! It's great fun and the rules change depending on how much the promoters have had to drink of holiday spirits!!

basically a white elephant gift exchange with a twist one wrapped gift per site . you hope to be first or last name to be drawn so you get the prize gift 'they range from great to duds, lots of flamingo or airstream things. there is always a couple of things that everybody wants so if you get a great gift expect it to be stolen many laughs and great fun. dirty santa probably came from the getting our treasure stolen and taking the dud gift the thief has in exchange dirty doesnt mean naughty as we have youngsters there Kay

Wink gift exchange

Okay I will explain the Gift Exchange.
Seeing as how this is a Christmas Rally, we have a gift exchange. each campsite brings a present it's put in a pile. Peter puts everyones name in his hat and draws them out one at a time. Lora reads the name drawn and selects a gift. The person who's name is called, opens the gift, then decides if they want to keep it or trade for something else that has already been opened. since no.1 has no one to trade with when all get a gift, no.1 gets to decide if they want to still keep the gift they Now have or trade it for something that someone else has and they do.
That is all there is to it.
Don't know how it got the name Dirty Santa. but that's what we now call it and it can be pretty fun.okay got it now.
And as I said before the gift should be something you yourself would like to receive as ,you may indeed be the one to go home with it.

I'm all for gifts and the sort, but I think I would be pretty sour if I opened a roll of electrical or duct tape.

So here is the deal. Real Ale Brewery has been selling their coffee porter very quickly. As a result, we are unable to get any for the rally. However, they have plenty of other cold wet beer! Skye and I will pick up, on Thursday, an 8 gallon jug of Brewhouse Brown Ale. It will be available for all. I do recommend you bring a cup because you look silly at a keg drinking from your hands. Please all remember this is a State Park. The Rangers do have a job to do so let's not make them mad at us.
This is our donation to the party. We had a blast last year and want to pay back. Writing this from McKinney Falls State Park where we have been since Saturday. Heading over to Blanco sometime tomorrow. Maybe we will see some alumimum along the way?

Yes Chuck..I know this, and have played White elephant, Rob your neighbor, and Dirty Santa several times. Perhaps it is just my own personal feelings on gift giving in general that I wouldn't bring such an item to begin with. Since I planned to have Collin to be the one getting the gift, I don't think the silly gifts like that would go over well. Just my opinion.
