A fair exhchange? Right? Right? Or is it? A short Board Meeting before the regular meeting. Christmas Party Basic Rules: From the 12/15/14 Party 1. Each participant brings a wrapped gift. Do not include whom it’s from on the packaging. 2. Participants will draw numbers. These determine the order of picking the presents. 3. The first player (#1) will select a gift and unwrap it in front of everyone 4. After the 1st player selects their gift, everyone else will have a choice to either steal any gift that has already been unwrapped or they can select an unwrapped gift for their turn. 5. Each gift can only be stolen three (3) times. 6. At the end of the exchange player #1 can steal any gift that has been unwrapped – even if it’s been stolen 3 times. The ABC’s Tips for gifts: a. The funnier or more weird the gift, the better! b. Keep the price at a maximum of $10. c. There’s nothing wrong with bringing a magnificent gift. H ow a r e y o u k n o w n a s a K i w a n i a n ?
