Twas several nights before Christmas

Twas several nights before Christmas when approximately 120 people from Area 51 (Pax & M’s) joined together at The Sugar Creek Brewing Company to celebrate a very merry F3 Christmas together.

What a great night we had for our 3rd annual Area 51 Christmas Party!  Thank you to everyone who came out and we hope you had a great time, enjoyed the food and the beer!  It was so nice to have so many of us in one place where we can actually see each other, as well as, get the chance to really talk and meet our better halves.  That was the fastest 3 hour party I’ve ever been to.  We packed the place out and raised a lot of money for the Area 51 Operational Funds so we can make it easier to do events like this in the future (like the Jan. 10th movie viewing of “Unbroken” – SIGN UP HERE).  Lots of raffle tickets were sold and some great prizes were won.  I think we all know the big winner was The Mouth by taking home the surprise raffle prize – – A Giant Tube of BenGay! May your muscles forever be relieved.  Again, thank you to all of the companies that donated prizes!

The highlight of the evening was our good friend Hops showing off his poetry skills with his version of “Twas The Night Before Christmas”.  Here is the link to the video:

The best part of the night was seeing how much canned goods were donated to help stock the Calvary Church Food Pantry.  The real impact was a couple days later when Hops, Mermaid, and myself delivered it and seeing how much food was actually collected and how much it truly meant to the folks at Calvary.  They were blown away and we were told it came at the most perfect time.  THANK YOU ALL!

I’m sure there are more pictures out there that truly capture the evening, but here are just a few:

Thanks yous go out to the following:

  • Haggis and The Stone Man company for donating money to help us put on this event.  Please check out their website here:  If you or anyone you know is thinking about adding an outdoor living space, fire pit, or just about anything to your make the outside of your house look better, give Haggis a call.  704-616-7948
  • Everyone at The Sugar Creek Brewing Company for having us.  Special shout out to Katie and Candace for working their tails off pouring beers and keeping up with individual tabs for everyone!
  • Bugeater, Tiger Rag, & Purple Haze for all the help behind the scenes to make this party happen.  So many other guys chipped in and we couldn’t have done it without all of your help.  THANK YOU!

Well that’s a wrap folks.  I hope you had as much fun as I did and that you all join us next year.  Anyone wanting to take over in the planning process of this event or other future F3 events, please reach out to Tiger Rag or myself.   I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and we will see you out in the gloom!

T-claps to Prohibition, Bugeater et al for a great event. Thankful for my F3 brothers. 2014 would have been decidedly more difficult in many ways for my family and me without this group of men. Praying the Lord’s blessings for all of us in the coming year. Aye!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
