Christmas Party

December saw us having our annual Christmas party, with fancy dress, games, competitions and party food.

Lots of the YAC members had dressed up.

We played the chocolate coin race, the magic carpet race, musical wrapping paper and our old favourite black death pass the parcel to name just a few of the games.

Our competition was to build the tallest tower possible using just newspaper and sticky tape; there were some great efforts.

We all ate lots of yummy food and everyone got to take a party bag home with them. It was a great party.

We’re all looking forward to 2010.

Christmas Capers

It’s that time of year again, when all the members of South Wiltshire YAC dress up as people of the past, eat too much, play vaguely historic games and generally have a good time.

The costumes were as brilliant as ever. Cally looked very imperial as a Roman, but couldn’t give herself a prize of course.  In fact the choice of a winner was so difficult that we gave two prizes, one for younger (Bayley )and one for older (Charlotte) members.  

The food was delicious – thank you Richard and Cally – and there wasn’t much of it left by the time we sat down to decorate our festive, archaeological snowmen.

It’s been a great year and now we’re looking forward to all the meetings to come in 2009.

Fun, Food and Fancy Dress!

This year’s Christmas party had a fancy dress theme. Costumes ranged from a cave girl, to the Romans, Queen Victoria and Howard Carter. The first of many games was ‘pass the penny’.

The next games played were everybody’s old favourite – the ‘mummy game’, the first team to wrap a fellow team member up in toilet roll wins! Then a fast paced game of magic carpet races!

Prizes were then given for:

Best costume – Great idea Emil, enjoy your book!

Best coin design – Nice one Victoria, who won a replica Elizabethan half penny!

Best folder – Well done Stephen, who won a replica Bronze Age arrowhead!!

Then it was more games and prizes for everyone!

Even the YAC leaders joined in the fun!!!
