This event is in the past.

Club Xmas Party

When           Saturday, 7 December, from 18:00
Where          Murrihuus in Schliern
Contact        Gerd Ulbers (see page 2)
Deadline      Saturday, 7 December

This is one of our most popular events, attracting a good turnout with an informal ambience and fine festive fare.

We will have Blues dancing - a crash course of a half hour, and background music to dance to later.

It is a "pot-luck" event – that is, every participant should bring a dish to share for five to six people. When registering, please tell Irene which dish you’ll be bringing.

There is no charge for members. Anyone not contributing a dish will be asked to pay CHF 20. Non-members pay an extra CHF 10. Wine is available at CHF 10 per bottle; all other hot/cold beverages, including an apero, will be provided by the Club.

We need volunteers to help with preparations (from 17:30). If you can help, please contact Graham.

Current count 20 persons, we hope for 40 or 50 attendees.
If you have not done so yet, please register. The Party is open to non-members (extra CHF 10) so please bring guests and invite anyone who you believe may be interested in the International Club. Especially we are asking the non-members who take part in our walks, hikes, badminton, language cafes, etc.
