WHO: Participation is OPTIONAL.

WHEN: 8:00 PM Dec 11, 2008 at Comic Jam (Jam runs from 6:30pm to 9/10ish pm)

RULES: Bring a cheap-ass-white-elephant gift and get one in return. No complaining about what you get, but trading at the end is encouraged.

HOW: WIth the economic state our country is in it’s a perfect time to have some holiday fun that is CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP.

1) Just grab some comics/books, drawings/art, etc. that you don’t want anymore and think other artist would like — CHEAP.
2) Get a free mailing envelope from work or the post office or fed-ex Kinko’s (the cardboard flat rate mailers would be great since they make it harder to tell what’s in it–CHEAP.
3) Stuff stuff into envelop and seal envelope.
4) Put a secret mark so you don’t pick your envelope when it’s your turn.
5) Come to CCSF jam

6) at 8pm any one who brought a CAWEgift will draw a number. Person 1 can pick one of the packages and then open it up for all to see. Person 2, 3, 4 etc have the option of ‘stealing’ from someone else the whole package (not just part) or picking a new one. The person who was ‘robbed’ can then pick a new package from the pile. The rules can be modified by the group if need be.

7) Enjoy out packages of goodies or trade with others the contents.

NOTE: If you really fee inclined to buy something for the cheap-ass-white-elephant gift exchange, try to keep it cheap and fun (comics for $0.10 are a good idea for instance)
