Christmas Meeting - December 2011

The December meeting is the BOGI fun night of the year and is a special night for all of our members. We will start with a BBQ at 6:30 PM and have our usual heads and tails, BOGI clinic and a monster Christmas raffle. Prizes will be awarded in the Christmas Hat Parade and Trivia Quiz. There will also be entertainment and random give always throughout the night. The highlight will be a special secret guest (not the man in red). Members are asked to bring a gift of toiletries for "Mamma Renes", helping the homeless and a plate to share for supper. When members pay their entry fee of $2 they will receive one free raffle ticket (there will be no raffle tickets on sale at the December meeting). To reflect the additional costs of this meeting, the entry fee for non-members will be $10.
