For the poker draw, It's $5.00 a head to play. Each cabin provides a deck of cards spread out on the bed, each player takes one card per cabin. We proceed from highest deck proceeding down, seeing the different Categories and Cabins, with deck 8 being the lowest passenger deck. After viewing the last cabin we will all meet up at O'Sheehan's Neighborhood Bar and Grill, where we will display our hands. Regular draw poker rules will be in effect. Winner will win all except $10.00 that will go to the worst hand. In the past we have had pots well ova $200.00. Time and date TBA

 

For the Gift Exchange~~ Each participant supplies one wrapped gift. The gifts are placed in a central location, and participants determine in what order they will take turns selecting them. The first person opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person gets the choice of “stealing” any unwrapped item or choosing a wrapped one from the gift pile. When a player's gift is stolen, they must select a replacement gift from the pile of wrapped presents or steal one of the unwrapped gifts. The game is over when the last person has taken their turn. $10~$15 Gift Limit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gift Exchange (separate event from M&M, TBA) $10-15 something representing your home area, something fun/quirky etc. One person, one gift only

From Steeler Nation at Sea

As promised, I located the dailies from the 2012 TA.

Maltings Happy Hour- 2 for 1 domestic beer, house wine and single shot house brand cocktails was held everyday except boarding day and day 3 from 4 until 6 pm.

Garden Cafe closed daily from 3 to 5. Only restaurants open at 3 were the indoor O'Sheehan's or Atrium Cafe or the outside Great Outdoors snack bar.

One of my favorite activities were the cocktail tastings, but, four varieties were held on the same days, one after another beginning around 1 or 2 pm making it nearly impossible to do them all and remain upright! These were held on days 3, 6, 8 and 10. I did not try the wine tastings, which were in the early time slots. There was also beer, margarita and martini tastings. The beer tasting that I attended was 3 or 4 international beer 5 oz.samples. The Margarita tasting was 3 full sized drinks. Far and away, the martini tasting packed the most punch with 4 full sized martinis to sample in one hour. So much fun! ( I think?  ) Cost was $15 and they did permit sharing.

Legends Show changes the stars for the Miami departures, so, we had one set of performers on day 1, 2 and 3 and then a whole new show on the final 3 nights.

Afternoon Tea

TBA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LRC: Let's start at the aft bar at H20. We have ten at-sea days. First five days at 2:00, second five days at 3:00. No sign-up needed. 

Should this location prove problematic once we're aboard, we'll just meander off to another.

Bring your three bucks and your washy washy happy happy hands, and we'll bring the washy washy happy happy dice, visor and crap rake!!!!!

 Left Center Right. Bring three $1 bills. Three dice marked with L, C, R, and dots. Roll the dice. Do what the dice say. Roll an L, pass a buck to the person on your left. Roll an R, pass a buck to the person on your right. Roll a C, put a buck in the center. Roll a dot, keep your buck. You roll as many dice as you have dollars. If you run out of dollars, you're still in the game because dollars may pass your way from neighbors.

Eventually all bucks end up in the center pot. Last person with a buck wins the pot!
 Game takes maybe 20 minutes. Just whoever shows up that day plays. We would just need to pick out a spot on the ship that has some nice chairs. 

Very fun, no skill, and cheaper than Bingo and the casino for sure! We'll bring the game!

Thanks to Debra (Mizdkc)

Farewell Luncheon

Date and time TBA

Please post to Mooloo to be added, I will be copying her master list

I'm happy to arrange this and had thought of the last sea day to give us something to look forward to when thoughts turn to packing. However open to suggestions - Steeler Nation At Sea you mentioned that you attended a lunch halfway through

I've listed those I picked up as having a definite interest and will be updating the running tally once a week, so please let me know if I have missed you or have the wrong number of guests for your screen name.

A month or so before we sail, I'll be asking for room numbers (here or via email if that works better) so that I can pass to the ship for invitations etc. :
