Who: Rising Sun members and their families, non-members and their families are welcome also! This is an official event, and counts the same as a trail run toward membership.
What: Annual Rising Sun Christmas Party. Food, family and friends!
When: Saturday, December 10, 2005. Start around 11:00AM, probably eat around noon or one, leave whenever we feel like, usually around dark.
Where: Kittredge Civic Association building, 26499 Mowbray Court, Kittredge CO 80457. Same place we've celebrated the last two years. Since the old forum is kaput I can't put in a link to the report from last year, but a few shots of Rising Sun are here

. Directions to Kittredge: From South or central Denver area, go to Morrison and take Colorado highway 74 West toward Evergreen, Kittredge is about 8 miles. You can also take US 285 to Indian Hills and then take Parmalee Gulch Road into Kttredge, but that generally takes a little longer. Turn left on Welch Ave., go one block, turn right on Mobray, the Civic Association building is on the right a couple blocks in, park in the basketball court to your right. Watch out for deer and elk. From North or West, take I-70 to the Evergreen Parkway exit 252 (Westbound) 251 (Eastbound), take Colorado highway 74 through Evergreen and into Kittredge, turn right on Welch Ave. Rest is the same.
Why: To get together at a family-oriented, non-wheeling event, have good food together and enjoy!
Details: Club buys meat and sodas and provides plates, cups and utensils, everyone bring potluck side dishes. Post up on this thread if you are coming, how many and what you are bringing for potluck so we don't have 42 kinds of cookies and no mashed potatoes. We'll have a gift exchange - bring a gift, get a gift. We normally have a club sponsored free raffle, we'll need to vote up funds for the food and raffle prizes next meeting. Since the Association is doing Toys for Tots, we'll skip that this year.
The building has a nice dining/meeting room, an oven and range, fridge, countertops, and plenty of tables and chairs. There used to be a boom box for holiday tunes, I don't remember if it's still there. If not, somebody bring one? I live nearby and will be able to ferry stuff back and forth, including nuking stuff in my microwave if need be. If anyone would like to help decorate and get set up in advance, please reply to this thread, PM me or call at (303) 674-2386.
