CLAW White Elephant Gift Exchange

This event is open to the public – all ages – and everyone is invited to attend and participate. If you bring children they might end up with a very odd gift more suitable for adults. I’m happy to say that this will be our fifth year of astonishing each other with truly absurd Christmas gifts. Now is your chance to re-gift that present your aunt gave you last year. Or maybe you bought something at a garage sale and your common sense kicked in when you go home, so it’s been living in the garage. Or maybe you found something that has the perfect “IT” factor for this event.
The ‘updated’ rules for the White Elephant Gift Exchange:

1. The gift must be “absurd”.
2. If you buy the gift, you must not spend more than $20.
3. You’re gift must be wrapped, or at the very least fully concealed in a festive bag.
4. Those who bring get to participate.
5. Numbers will be drawn from a fez to determine order.
6. You can select a gift from a table or steal a gift from a person who already chose a gift.
7. A gift can only be stolen three times, at which time it becomes locked-in.
8. The person who went first gets a chance at the end of the round to steal a gift.
9. The Trading, purchasing, bartering or auctioning of gifts after the exchange is allowed.
10. No books on Nazis.

In the event that there are extra gifts, they will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. We take credit cards.

October 3rd, 2014 by MarkMonlux

"24 Hour Comic Book Challenge" by Corey Macourek

“24 Hour Comic Book Challenge” by Corey Macourek

The CLAW invites you to come and watch them draw during the 24 Hour Comic Challenge at Tacoma Games. Participating artists must write, layout, and ink a 24 for page comic in 24 Hours. This will be the 5th Year CLAW has participated in the 24 Hour Comic Challenge. It has become a tradition for those who provide donations, and much needed protein [too much sugary donuts and there’s sugar crash], become drawn into the various comic strips. James Stowe will be broadcasting the event via his laptop. This is one of the CLAW’s fundraisers for the CLAW Student Scholarship Fund. You can donate in person or online at the CLAW’s website. Our host this year is Tacoma Games – at their new location. The event starts at 10am Saturday and will run to 10am Sunday. Space for participating artists is limited, so if you would like to join in the challenge contact Mark Monlux to RSVP table space. For safety reasons the doors will be locked from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am, a call to a friend inside will gain you admittance. For updates as they happen please look to the CLAW’s Facebook Page.

Starting Time: Saturday, October 4th, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. sharp.
Location: Tacoma Games at their new digs… 2509 6th Ave, Tacoma, Washington 98406

Donations of all amounts are accepted. Amounts of $100 or more reach Sponsor status which gives them a logo and a hotlink on our CLAW Student Scholarship page.

If for some reason the donate button is not working. Use your own paypal account to email the payment to with a notation that it’s for The CLAW.
