This is the fourth C3 held over Labor Day. It works perfectly. People are off, but they have plenty of time to get home and spend the holiday with family and friends.And it's not in the city, it's in the suburbs. We had close to 100 attendees in 2010, so I guess the date works. :)

The White Elephant gift exchange was so much fun in 2010, we're doing it again this year at C3:

What do you do to participate? Remember, this is voluntary..its not a must, but if you don't bring a gift, you don't get one.

1. Check through your stash of Christmas "stuff". Things that are in good shape or new, that you don't want, never used, or won't use. Your discard might just be perfect for someone else..then again, maybe not!

2. There is no minimum or maximum as to value..so if you want to, wrap up that spare controller you don't need.. or those boxes of c7 replacement bulbs..

3. The White Elephant Gift needs to be wrapped, camouflaged, concealed..make it interesting. Go ahead, use that entire roll of tape on the 24x24x24 box with the c7s inside, we don't care..that's half the fun! Shopping bags, newspapers, towels, you name it.. watching people struggle to open their gifts can be fun! The idea is to keep people from guessing what is in the package and who its from. If the gift is gender specific, tag it and let everyone know. But no names..

4. If you don't bring a gift, you won't get a gift..but you can watch the fun!

5. Gifts can be stolen, we encourage it, so be prepared..the gift you open just might be stolen by the next guest. A gift can be stolen twice..after that, it's pronounced dead and the person who has it at that point, keeps it. The gift cannot be stolen again once its dead.

We hope you plan to participate. The WEG is a lot of fun, don't miss out. Start looking through your inventory..you just never know what you'll be bringing home.
