Slammer's Christmas Dinner 2011

On a clear and crispy December evening, the Slammers held yet another Annual Christams Potluck Dinner. It was held this year at the North Kansas City Community Center and attended by many members of the club. Spouses and friends were in attendance as well.

We had a very short business meeting, but the main reason for the December Meeting is for some serious eating and lots of good visiting and many laughs to go around. Our "Model Buildin' Pastor" - Leonard Poppe - said grace for the gang and then we descended on the buffet line to fill up our plates. The club provided the plates and dinnerware, bought the ice, pop, and water. All of the food was cooked and brought in by the members and families.

After we all ate, acting-Santa Zimm ran the White Elephant Gift Exchange for the Slammers that wished to participate (6 of us this year). Bill Helm got the prize of the night by selecting the first gift and in it was wrapped a genuine friction-powered rat. Oddly, in subsequent gift draws... NOBODY challenged Bill's claim on that special item. He went home smiling with his "rat rod" !

The winner of the monthly club theme build (and $5 cash) was Alyn Loya with his great '57 Chevy build for the theme "Red or Green - Ya Know What I Mean?"

What a great night it was for us all to just kick back and have a great time with our Slammer Family! Merry Christmas to all !
