The Holiday Party is our anual Thank You party for our volunteers. Happens this year on Saturday, December 10th, 8pm until as late as we want. Food and drinks are provided, but more food is always needed. This event is, once again, organized by your tireless party committee, otherwise known as Outreach.

To Do

  • Music/DJ
    • Tim wants to dj for a couple of hours -ok
    • Revphil has confirmation the Golden Greats will play. They rocked the muthership during the World Naked Ride in June... ADDENDUM: The GoldenGreats have questions they need answered asap
      • 1) when we're going to play, for how long, and who else might be sharing the stage. (it's saturday, december 10th, right?)
        • revphil - I would make them the last band, which means what, 1030 until midnight?
      • 2) what kind of sound-system is involved. will freegeek have a PA or do they need us to get one?

Would it be possible for Mykle to come take a look at the equipment and help us figure this out beforehand? If not, Oso needs to assess the situation and send him an e-mail, CC:ed to Modsquad so the rest of us know what we have too. - Xen

      • 3) i assume we're doing this gratis, but is it okay if we invite the public? all sorts of people have been asking when we're going to play next, i'd love it if they could all come
        • revphil - I think its ok for them to tell people, but not to broadcast it right?

I understand invites are going out to Cityrepair, other collectives, etc. as well as Social and Core. We've got 400 cans of PBR and a keg so we SHOULD be set for booze should a large crowd show up. - Xen

  • Beer
    • We've got 20 cases (canned) beer coming from Pabst Blue Ribbon.
    • Widmer Brothers is also giving us a keg of Drop Top Amber for the party. Christen is scheduled to pick up the keg (and drop off the refundable $170 deposit) between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Dec. 9.
    • Booze Coordinator Christen is now investigating the wine issue.
  • Wine
    • Christen has arranged to pick up about 6 bottles of wine from Noble Rot, 2724 SE Ankeny St., Portland on Dec. 9 or 10. She will have to bring a request with Free Geek's letterhead on it when she makes the pickup. Will ask for Kimberly or Courtney and receipt.
