Jackie & Lyman Hazelton are hosting the annual
Arizona Objectivists’ Solstice Party at their home on
Saturday, December 17, 2011 at 6 PM.  Note earlier
start time.

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.

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 give it to Lyman to be
put 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.

We will used ranked choice voting to choose the book for the Tuesday meetings starting in January, 2010.
Books in the running are:

1. The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
in 12 installments (50-60 pages each) one per month

2. We The Living by Ayn Rand
in 9 installments (50-60 pages each) one per month

3. The Virtue of Selfishness by Ayn Rand
19 Chapters one per month

4. The Vision of Ayn Rand by Nathaniel Branden
20 Chapters one per month
