We are finalizing all the arrangements for the MOGSouth Holiday Party!!
Make sure you’re ready!
The King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort on St Simons Island is our party Hotel and the site for the MOGSouth Holiday Banquet.
Hotel Reservations – You should have reservations for, at a minimum, Friday (6 Dec) and Saturday (7 Dec) nights. The Holiday Banquet is on Saturday night. If you haven’t booked your room, do it now! The phone number is (800) 342-0212. I don’t know if it is still possible to get the MOGSouth discounts, but you should try. Tell the hotel you are with MOGSOUTH and, be sure to ask for your ‘Goodie Bag’ when you check into the hotel’s reception.
The Holiday Banquet – The banquet headcounts are now being finalized so that they can be given to the hotel restaurant. Make sure you have notified Debbie that you will attend the banquet so she can add you to the headcount. If there are food allergies or other dietary issues, please let us know.
MOGSouth Membership has its Benefits! – Just like last year, MOGSouth is subsidizing the costs of the Holiday Party event. All Hospitality Room costs will be covered and the Banquet costs will be subsidized by MOGSouth, i.e. you will pay less than it really costs! So, you can feel good about your membership dues! And, just a reminder, MOGSouth membership dues are due on 1 January. Still $25 each year. The club will kindly take your dues money at the Holiday Banquet, see Mark or Stacey.
Trolley Tours – There are still two seats available for the trolley tour. If you want to go, contact Debbie right now and she will reserve your seat. I suggest an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be the fastest way to communicate. The tour leaves the hotel front door, promptly at 10 AM on Saturday 7 Dec. The tour price is 20$ per person. If you haven’t been to St Simons before or if you haven’t taken this tour, you really do need to go.
Silent Auction – Don’t forget the Silent Auction (it’s the Holidays . . . better to give, than to receive??)
Identify what you to donate to the Club and bring it to St Simons in December. If you have greasy or heavy/bulky things for the auction just bring a photo. No need to transport it now. Winners of the bidding for the Auction will be announced in/or around the banquet room immediately following the banquet. All proceeds go to MOGSouth. Be sure to get your items to the Wesley Cottage before by 4PM on Saturday.
Ugly Sweater Contest – Yes, I do have an ugly Holiday sweater! And, I can’t blame Andrea (or can I?) Debbie has ‘special’ name tags or other identifying items for those that are competing in the Ugly sweater contest. You don’t want to miss out as there are some ‘wonderful’ prizes to be awarded. Go look in your closet! You may be surprised! Be honest! If you decide to play, do let Debbie know via email (email@example.com). There have been some questions as to when the sweaters are to be worn. Yes, worn during the Saturday evening banquet!
If there are questions, send Debbie Stanley an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
