BS Rider 2019 Christmas Party - Saturday, December 7th

The 2019 Christmas Party and Annual Meeting will be at the Pierce Mansion in Sioux City, Iowa on Saturday, December 7th at 6 p.m.  Bring a spouse or friend.  New members are welcome.

The main course will be smoked pork brisket and a brine turkey.  We are looking to have party goers bring either  a side-dish or desert if they can, but it's not required.  The club will supply plates, cups, and tableware.  If you want something to drink beside water or coffee bring it with you.  Please RSVP (brion.hase@gmail.com) if you are coming, if you are bringing a guest, and if you know what dish you are bringing.  

If you wish to participate, bring something to throw into the famous white elephant gift exchange at the Christmas party.  The suggested guideline is about $15 to $25.  Some gifts from prior years seem to reappear every year or two.  Stuffed animatronics which generated festive pop music are continually popular.  There has also always been battery charger.

Voting on the Big Johnson Award and new club officers will be before the gift exchange.  Be warned - people who don't show up can be nominated and elected.  Even non-members can be nominated to don't be afraid to nominate family, friends and fellow riders.  Club dues are $20/person or $25/family and mostly help cover expenses for the party and to cover a few minor expenses during the year.

Send your Big Johnson nominations to Jim - http://bigsiouxriders.blogspot.com/2014/01/big-sioux-riders-annual-big-johnson.html  According the rules you can win this award more then once and you don't have to be an official BS Rider member to win.
