What is a White Elephant Gift Party?

White elephant parties have been known to result in playful rivalries between players trying to get sought-after items. The goal of a white elephant party is usually to entertain rather than to gain.

Gifts are typically inexpensive, humorous items or used items from home. The term white elephant refers to a gift whose maintenance costs exceed its usefulness.

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

White Elephant Rules:
We start out with a bowl full of numbers and randomly draw a number- that will determine the order of which we select gifts. The person who drew #1 opens a wrapped gift and the turn ends. On subsequent turns, each person can open a new present or is allowed the option to “steal” another person’s unwrapped gift. When a person’s gift is stolen, that person can either choose another wrapped gift to open or can steal from another player. The game is over when the last person goes and the first person goes again.

It is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED not required that you participate in the white elephant gift exchange. IF YOU DO CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE bring one wrapped present and don’t put your name on it.

Post RS Halloween Event

Many thanks for EVERYONE who contributed

in our Pumpkin Pump Up Halloween Event!

pumpkins

Thank you for your participation and contributions by bringing in a tasty (and healthy) treat,  a pumpkin, and/or dressing up! You all contributed in some way, and for that I can’t begin to tell you how much happiness this brings me.

At RS we love hosting events, but the Halloween Event is extra special. There’s just something about this time of the year- The colors, the smells, the weather, the food- I love it ALL!

However, this particular event helps remind us to not take life too seriously. We can still be silly, a little crazy, AND have fun without sacrificing our workout!

Don’t get me wrong, I still love me some good old competition. Our goal at RaceStart was to make you smile and laugh while getting in a good sweat fest. We are all young at heart and RaceStart wanted to remind everyone that it’s okay to let loose, and feel like a kid again. Sometimes we forget the importance of being able to laugh at ourselves, brush off a bad day, and keep moving forward on this fitness journey we set out on! #enjoylife #embracethecrazy 😉
