Jackie & Lyman Hazelton are hosting the 11th annual
Arizona Objectivists’ Solstice Party at their home on
Saturday, December 19, 2009 at 6 PM.  Note earlier
start time.

DINNER:
The traditional Pizza ordered out for $5 per person.
There will also be holiday sweets for dessert and
non-alcoholic beverages. If  you have special dietary needs or
would prefer an alcoholic beverage, please feel free to bring
what you require or desire, for yourself or to share.

GIFT EXCHANGE:
We will play a present guessing game to sharpen our logical
reasoning skills and get to know each other better. Please
bring a wrapped gift worth $15 or more which represents
something about yourself (but of course should be an object
that someone else might like). Before entering, place the gift
in a brown paper bag (at the door) and then deposit it in the
guest room. After dinner, we will draw numbers and begin  the
present selection and analysis. Each gift will be opened, written
down on your list and analyzed.  Once all gifts are opened, you
must finalize your guess at who gave each gift.  Starting with the
first gift,  the real giver reveals himself/herself and explains the
gift selection.   Why, for example, he gave the CD and a
potato perched on a styrofoam couch. The person who gets the
most correct gets an additional gift from Jackie.  Ayn Rand’s Collective
played this type of game at Christmas time. If you prefer not to bring
a gift, you can forego participation in the exchange but may
still assist in the guessing.

2010 TUESDAY MEETING DECISION:
We will finalize what book to use for the Tuesday meetings in 2010.
See prior email listing 6 options.
