BAAS Xmas Party in Milpitas, CA
When: Saturday Dec 16th
Where: 1856 Crater Lake Ave Milpitas 95035
Time: 1pm - 10pm
After a two year absence, the BAAS Xmas Party is back and in a new
It's my great pleasure to announce that, after a three year hiatus,
the Bay Area Animation Society Christmas Holiday Party will be taking
place on Saturday, December 16th, 2007 in an all-new location! We do
apologize for the lateness in this announcement but due to logistical
concerns the party's location had to be moved at the last moment. We
have managed to hold this event without fail for over ten years
through rain and yes, blackouts ;) However, over the last few years,
the party has been postponed due to a plethora of medical issues.
For the first time in a very long time, our party will not be held at
Mrs. Brown's home but rather at the home of BAAS staff member Nessie
Rilviera and his stalwart, ultra cool roommate, Al Flores (known to
many of you as DJ Socket). Due to the timely intervention of those
two BAAS members along with Mr. Mike Siu, another long-time BAAS
staffer, we were able to pull the event together in a timely enough
fashion to present to one and all.
Without going into too much detail, many of usual suspects will be on-
site and we urge everyone to stop by and say hello! This year, we
will not be holding a food-drive / raffle event but rather just a
small fund-raising raffle instead. As always, we plan to have a lot
of food and the menu for this year includes (but is not restricted
Herb Butter Turkey
Tracy's Rice Dressing (as promised by Tracy)
Sweet Potato Casserole
Mac 'n Cheese (as promised by Mrs. Brown)
We ask that all of you planning to attend please bring either soft
drinks, snacks, or a dessert to share and, as always, if you have
questions or concerns about the event, feel free to call Tracy (408-
250-3024) or Rob (510-860-5607 - evenings only).
See you there!
P.S. Please pass this email on to anyone who was planning to attend
and may not be on the mailist.
