funny I was told that the gift exchange was only for the ones that bring something. No one can participate unless they bring a gift. When did we ever check member ID cards at a party? Are we going to hire a bouncer this year to check "IDs"?

I agree that you must be a current member to vote on anything that has to deal with the club but to attend a Christmas party that we all pay for our own no one can come to unless they are members? I could understand if the club was paying for everyone's dinner but everyone has to pay their own. Just my $.02 but then again I am the new guy here.

this is wrong forum for you to try and change rules.
you need to contact the president about the rule that says "you must be a club member to participate in gift thingie And bring a gift valued at $25 or more at christmas party"

I am not trying to change the rules. I am just giving my $.02. Thats all.

Given more time to think about it, yes only members should be able to participate in this and adults only.

This was posted 2 years ago and was printed in the newsletter back then as well. May need to be revised.

We do need to add that since elections happen during the Christmas Party, only current PAID members can vote.
In the rare occasion that two people run for one position(Very rare, and it's only happened once since I've been a member), each candidate gives a brief speech as to why they should be chosen, they step out, the members discuss the two candidates and a vote is taken.

The candidates are brought back after the decision has been made and the candidates are informed of the decision.

We also need to change that there is no longer a raffle.

Holiday Party Gift Exchange Etiquette

I wanted to bring to you attention, some guidelines and rules for this years SD and OC Christmas party.

These GUIDELINES are merely suggestions as to the way SV2s has been conducting these gift exchanges. These are merely suggestions they are not rules.

The RULES are unwritten (Until now) and many longtime members understand these rules. However, with so many new members In the club participating in the gift exchange, we’ve come to a point where these rules need to be addressed so that everyone participating has a fun time at this event. Everyone participating in this years event, need to abide by these.

I know that this may be somewhat trivial to have to create this list of guidelines and rules, but it’s time. Many members have approached me regarding their valid concerns over the gift exchange, and how many people seem to have forgotten or simply don’t know the way things are SUPPOSED to happen. So these rules and guidelines address these direct concerns from members, so here it is……….


GUIDELINES
1. Most members have traditionally MADE a gift instead of bringing a store bought gift. This gave people a creative outlet and every year, it was exciting to see what new, ingenious gifts were brought to the party.

2. If a gift was purchased, NO PROBLEM, but we have traditionally asked members to make sure the gift is at MINIMUM worth $25.

3. The Christmas party has traditionally been an ADULT only affair.

4. If kids were brought to the party, and in recent years this has been the case, one suggestion from a member with kids was to bring a gift for their kid so they can unwrap it.

5. Most people don’t drive their buses to this event unless the bus really is their daily driver. Most of us take the FAMILY car to this event. Quick trip there and home, especially with it being December.

6. Everyone that brings a gift gets a raffle ticket, and everyone usually takes home a raffle item. If you have something to donate, bring it to the party.

RULES
1. Gift must be a MINIMUM a $25 value. It’s not fair that someone who MADE their gift spent $45 in materials (VW Blanket), a few hours of their time making the gift and ended up going home with a $2 trinket.

2. Kids have been participating in this gift exchange and in the last few years I’ve seen many kids crying over a gift that was stolen from them. THIS IS THE WAY THE GAME WORKS. This year we ask that no kids under the age of 12 participate in the gift exchange.

3. If you are not a current/paid member, YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT.(With the exception of spouses/significant others/kids)

4. 3 steals. The last few years, we’ve had to cut the amount of steals to 2 steals. It takes a while to get through 40 to 50 gifts at 3 steals each. This change has diluted the exchange and many members want to bring back the 3 steals. So this year and from now on 3 steals per gift no matter how long it takes.

5. On the third steal, the gift is yours (If you’re the one that stole it for the third time)

6. If someone steals a gift from you, you cannot steal it back right away, it has to be stolen from someone else first before you can steal it back.

7. SV2s does NOT foot the bill for this event, you pay for your food and drinks. Yes, we’ve had to pay for a few people who forgot to pay.

So there you go, more RULES that you need to follow. Seriously though. These guidelines and rules are actual concerns from members, and we the officers brainstormed these guidelines and rules as a group for everyone to consider and reflect on before coming to the Christmas party.

Note that the extra $10 is a "processing" fee. Meaning if you want to be considered as a current paid member, the extra $10 is for me to bust out my laptop and enter in your info right then and there. :lol:


I am kidding

The newsletters go out only to active members Tony. You are safe! :cool:

BTW, great piece! If you can't shake any fruit off the tree with that, I don't know what will! ;-)

Thanks again, Tony.
However....we don't need another all members meeting to chart the future of SV2s. The members have spoken and the directions are clear. We just need officers who are willing to make decisions and move ahead.

OK, back behind Tony's couch.

Thanks for the kind words. All of you and I care about this club and want it to thrive. Along with shaking the fruit from the trees, we may also have to do some replanting with the desire to get some fresh fruit with new flavors...er, ideas. I know I'm killing the analogy, but I think you know what I mean.

Let's get on with some Italian food..............soon! See y'all ( I love that word!) Saturday!
Tony
