[Meeting Report ] #182 December 16 !!Christmas Special!!

Post date: Dec 21, 2017 1:07:27 PM

By the time strees were illuminated romantically with colorful LEDs, we crammed into a meeting room to be ready for our pre-emptive activity....

....We celebrated Christmas early!!! This had to happen as tonight was our last gathering for 2017.

Members had been asked to appear with something red and/ or green in their dress. The outcome? See the first photo.

We went even further as to exchange presents with a price cap at 500 yen each.

Lots of fun loaded upfront, coupled with the presence of as many as 6 guests, made our meeting absolutely special!!!

Some of us got even merrier after the meeting. (See the third photo) Happy holidays!
