Annual NMTS Holiday Party, 5 – 8 pm
Saturday, Dec. 14 at Vineyards Club House
The annual NMTS Holiday Party will be at the Vineyards Club House, 6118 Edith NE
(between Montano and Osuna). All NMTS members are welcome; each member can
bring a spouse or guest.
It’s a potluck dinner; the club will provide the main course
but members are expected to bring a salad, side dish, or dessert. Beverages
will be provided (no alcohol is allowed at the clubhouse). Don’t forget the holiday gift
exchange; bring a wrapped gift, value no greater than $15, to participate – bring a gift,
get a gift.
To sort out the gift exchange and provide the evening’s entertainment, Mark
Pasnewski will again regale us with his NMTS Year in Review, in left/right format.
Additionally, there will be a special presentation by the NMTS magical music troupe. You will experience a skit full of caterwauling, ululating and wailing such as you never experienced before!

Also attached is a pic of Rich Cullinson that shows how wet the ride was. Rich, Ed Hernandez and I did the 42 mile ride also in the rain.
