The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club's Mountaineering Section invites you to our annual holiday party, joined by our friends from the American Alpine Club DC Section.
Join us at the Lawton Recreation Center in Chevy Chase, MD for our Annual Holiday Party. In store we've got a silent auction to benefit the club with some seriously awesome items up for grabs; the ever-fun Yankee gift swap; our annual photo contest with sweet prizes; Golden Biner Awards; and who doesn’t love climber drinking games?!
And let’s not forget the food and booze! This will be a potluck-style event – we’ll take care of the main dish, you show off your side-dish culinary talent and spirits. The old adage “the more, the merrier” applies!
A few notes about the gift swap: It'll be the standard Yankee gift swap split up into groups so that it doesn't take the whole evening and you have time to mingle and enjoy the rest of the festivities. Gifts should be around the $15 range if you want to participate and do not need to be climbing-related, but of course, no one's going to complain if they are. ;) We've had some great gifts in the past and it's a fun game. If you have any other questions, just send us an email.
There is plenty of parking on-site and the Bethesda Metro is just a few blocks walk away.
We do have to set up tables and chairs so we need help with both setup and takedown. If you'd like to help, please tick the boxes on the registration form...arrive at 6:30pm for setup; stay till about 10:30pm for cleanup.
The address is 4301 Willow Lane, Chevy Chase, MD and the fun starts at 7pm, wrapping up at 10pm.
So put on your party pants and don’t miss this. We look forward to seeing you!
A big Thank You! to our auction sponsors!
