On January 3rd,  2009, the guild will be holding its 2nd Roc Day Celebration.   Just like many guilds who hold a Roc Day event, we will have vendors, a dish-to-pass-luncheon for members and guests, kids corner, raffles and more..    Instead of  inviting a speaker.. we’ve chosen to have our first winter games.. 

From our poster:

Compete for one of the following Great Prizes:

– A drop spindle played with by 2 puppies in the bitting stage

– Roving that has recently been left out in the rain

– Expensive yarn guarnteed to split with every stitch

– A personal favorite – the ball of yarn needed to complete the last sleeve of the sweater-that will take hours to untangle

Suggestions for the 1st Summer Games

Watermelon-seed spitting and stone skipping contests. If we have inclement weather and move inside, there will be pick up sticks and jacks.

The Summer Games are subject to the majority vote from the body of the talented members of the guild who are dedicated to preserving fun and laughter whenever they meet.
