I realize Christmas is still a while away, but things tend to get moving real fast this time of year. Before you know it holiday parties will be starting to happen and then it's already into the hustle of the season.

I'm curious if we'll be doing a group effort like we did last year. I think I can speak on behalf of everyone who was involved when I say it was one of the best parts of Christmas last year. It felt great to be part of something like that.

I *think* it was Busanbhoy who got it started last year but not 100% sure.

I think this came up not long ago, Chris is the one in charge so I guess he'll just let us know.

It'd be good to get going on it though, Chris?

well, when i brought it up, people seemed to indicate 2 families would be the right number - i will have the details (ages, sexes etc..., by Draft night)

i don't want to pressure or expect from anyone, but i do know the one who did the money side, and the one who did the food side, did an EXCELLENT job last year - i wonder if they have the time again? :wub:

Perfect.

I was going to write "you can speak on my behalf any day", but then I thought that may not be such a good idea :)
