THE YANKEE SWAP Bring a gift of at least $5.00-$10.00 value to do with the hobby, gift wrapped.
Each participant is given a numbered ticket. You then chose your gift when your number is called. Before you open your gift you can swap with any member called before you. You can not go back to swap your gift once you have passed a person. The first person called, can at the end of the swap, swap with any other. The club adds a mystery gift to a lucky participant. Come and enjoy lots of fun and nice gifts.
DISPLAYS If you can, bring a display of your summers acquisitions.
