WOW! We had over 50 people at the Holiday party last night and it was a blast! Fortunately we were prepared...a smoked turkey, a smoked ham, a roasted turkey, a smoked lamb leg and more! In fact we still have enough food left over to do it again! I must say that the meat was smoked to perfection...the sides divine...but the company was extraordinary! We even had a couple of new people who just found out about us and contacted us for the first time last night! :cool1: You can imagine my delight when they arrived and I asked who they were with and they said "SingleDivers.com! :diver:

I wanted to thank everyone that brought food, arrived early to help, or helped to plan this event. It was a wonderful collective effort and of course to all those that attended! :2cool: I think we have now out grown my home so next year we may have to make other arrangements for the party's venue...but in the meantime...we sure had a ball last night! And yes...this time we did get pictures but only of about half of the people there. Seems we had about 4 cameras in the crowd but everyone was having so much fun that no one was taking pictures! However we do have a few pictures to share with our friends who couldn't join us to give them a taste of the fun...and speaking of tastes...I think we need to email Funewgy a picture of the food and drink that he asked for! If it looks half as good as it tasted...you are in for a treat! LOL!! :teeth:

Thank you all again...I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Hmmm....leftovers anybody??? :lmao:

p.s. we have set up a photo gallery for all the party pictures. You'll find it under SD Events and Activites Photo Galleries Click here for the party photo gallery!

It was definately a good party and it's always good to meet some new SD folks as well as seeing many which I know already!

I'm definately looking forward to seeing again some of the pictures that were taken and I know next years party will be even bigger and just as great!

I'm bummed I didn't make it, but that said it was probably better that I stayed home. I am still recoving from my head cold (which I blame on Vegas) :teeth: ). Anyway, sounds like you guys had a great time.

It was a great holiday party!! My thanks go to Kamala, Debbie, Kim, etc whose efforts made it happen. The food was great and I enjoyed meeting new SD.com members as well as seeing all my "old" dive buddies. Kamala, you looked awesome in your holiday costume. Thanks again. Tom (P.S. Kamala, where will the party be next year?)
