The Thirty-first Year

Yule -- Teufelberg

December 7, 1996 (AS XXXI)

Scout Hut,
Lafayette, CA

From The Page (December, 1996):

Come one and all to the Shire of Teufelberg Yule Revel at the Scout Hut on Woodborough Road, Lafayette. Bring: a dish to share, a gift for the pirate gift exchange, games, musical instruments, table service, enclosed candles, and a spirit of fun. We will provide hot and cold beverages, tables and chairs, music, a fireplace, and a spirit of fun. There are electrical outlets and a range and refrigerator, but no oven. There is no required site fee, but donations to help cover our expenses will be cheerfully accepted.

Our traditional pirate gift exchange is the highlight of this annual event. Each participant brings one wrapped gift (suggested pnce range: $2-10) which is placed in a pile. Each person draws a number from a hat. Number One picks a gift from the pile. Number Two has a choice of the previously opened gift or one from the pile. If your gift is taken, you get another chance to take from the pile or steal one yourself! This goes on until all gifts are opened, then Number One gets his or her pick of all the opened gifts. To prevent free-for-alls, each gift can be stolen only once per round. This activity usually provides a great deal of entertainment, as well as a gift for everyone!

This is a DRY site (no alcohol or other intoxicants). No smoking in the hall, and be very careful outside.

Autocrat: For further information, contact Annalind Airamid the Healer (contact info omitted).
