    SCAPE Holiday Party/Potluck

    Hows everyone doing?
    The Holiday season is upon us, 'tis the season to be scaping! In the past Decembers, meetings have been hard to have with everyone celebrating and buying gifts, I know my aquarium budget is taking a hit lol. So instead of having a regular style meeting we will be having a SCAPE Holiday Party/Potluck.
    The party will be more relaxed than usual meetings, more along the lines of how the mini meets usually go. Details are still being made, but I wanted to make this thread to gather interest and let everyone know.
    Date is December 15th, 5pm-9pm. Location is in Buena Park. Standard $5 cover as usual. Food will be Potluck Style, Bring your Best Dish and let us all be amazed by it! Small Silent Auction will be held.
    We will be having a White Elephant Gift exchange. If you wish to participate please bring a wrapped gift valued between $10-$20. Lets try to gear the gifts towards the planted aquarium hobby as well.
    Official Thread will be posted soon.
    Come out and celebrate with your fellow hobbyists.

    White Elephant Gift Exchanges are always fun. We will definitely have to play around with the ideas to make em club orientated.

    Cool event idea and very local to me, I will likely be able to attend, if I lose a day of pay.

    Couple questions. Is this a Scape sanctioned meeting or a mini/member organized meet? "Standard $5 cover as usual." Does this mean we earn tickets for attendance? $5 cover fee usually covers food and other associated costs for the host. Who is the host and why is it $5 if we have to bring our own food dish which will likely cost $10-$30. Is this a $5 or Bring a dish optional type thing?

    If the coordination exsists to have a meeting in Nov. which should have been a down month, then another meeting/party in Dec. Why haven't we just moved back to having a Dec. Grand raffle? As we now have a dedicated Event Coordinator as well as 2 Raffle Directors. If you want everyone to come and celebrate the end of the year together, you hold a Raffle, it could be the difference between having 20+ attendees for a potluck or 150+ attendees for a raffle. No one wants their tickets to go to waste so people make a decent effort to get to the Raffles.

    January has always been a strong month for meetings without the raffle. Seems like a waste to keep having it in January.

    January has always been a strong month for meetings without the raffle. Seems like a waste to keep having it in January.
    We're not doing a standard style meeting in December because of the holidays, this was all brought up during the last board conference call. It IS a sanctioned meeting and members will be able to earn raffle tickets for attending.
    It is a different type of event for us to all come together and have a good time, not to just stand in a group and bid on auction items lol. The reason for the $5 cover even though its a Potluck and people will be bringing food, besides earning grand raffle tickets? To help make the grand raffle even better. The club doesn't have to cover the cost of food for the host, all proceeds go to the club which then goes towards MORE/BETTER raffle prizes. There will be a silent auction for people to still be able to bid on things, the white elephant gift exchange, good food from good members, and good times.
    Alcohol will be allowed, just be responsible everyone since it IS a family oriented club. I might bring some homemade Eggnog.
    I am also going to try to invite some of our sponsors so they can actually mingle with the club and the members, the store sponsors are always stuck inside during the meetings.

    Thanks for the clarification. Yeah we had several low attendance meets, great way to add more money to the pot.

    Who is the host going to be? Tying to think who lives in Buena park or what stores are out there.

    Add me to the interested list.
