  Mile High Denver Chapter of ARMA


Happy Holidays!!

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!!"

Please join me and your fellow ARMA Members and guests for a late afternoon of learning, fun, food, drinks, networking, and festivities on Tuesday, December 11th all for free.  We will be having a Business Partner Workshop, Kill Your File Shares With File Analysis, sponsored by Active Navigation starting at 4:00 p.m.  The workshop will be followed by our monthly event sponsored by Business Partner Silver Level, Long View Systems, including a presentation from our Chapter Charity - Pets For Vets; Educational Content on volunteering from some of our Board Members; a gift card give-a-way; and a "White Elephant" Gift Exchange.  You will also get a free drink and free appetizers at our networking event sponsored by Business Partner Platinum Level, Total Document Solutions.  DID I MENTION THAT THIS IS A FREE MEETING!!  Please remember to register using the December Meeting Link, on the left of this page, under UPCOMING EVENTS or below so that we have an appropriate count for food.

If you would like to participate in the "White Elephant" Gift Exchange the cost is $5.00 (Cash, Check, or Credit Card) which will go to the charity, Pets For Vets.  Along with their $5.00, participants will bring a wrapped gift that has a $15.00 - $20.00 gift value.

"White Elephant" Gift Exchange Rules: On the first turn, the person assigned with #1 picks out a gift and opens it so all can see what it is. On the second turn, the person assigned with #2 gets the choice of “stealing” #1’s unwrapped gift or choosing a wrapped one from the pile. If #2 steals #1’s gift, then #1 must choose and open a wrapped gift.

As subsequent players take their turns, they either select a new gift or take any already opened gift from any of the other players. Have any player who has a gift taken away either choose a new gift or take an already-opened gift from another player.

The game continues with the following rules:

  • If someone steals your gift, you can steal someone else’s gift or choose and open a wrapped one.
  • Continue until everyone has had a turn for a gift. A turn is ended when an unopened gift has been opened.
  • A gift can only be “stolen” once during a turn. If a gift is taken from someone during one round, he or she cannot take it back during that same round. He or she can, however, take it back in a later round if he or she is in a position to select a gift.
  • A gift cannot be immediately stolen back from the player who just stole it.
  • Once a gift has 3 “owners,” the 3rd owner of a gift gets to keep it – it is retired and can’t be stolen again.
  • The gift exchange ends when the last wrapped gift is chosen and opened.


After the last turn, the person who started (since he or she didn’t get a chance at the beginning) can put back the gift and “steal” a gift according to the rules. This starts the gift exchange again (following the above rules) and ends when someone chooses or is forced to take the gift given up by the person with #1.

Website Updates!!

If any of your member information isn't correct on our local website, please update your information at ARMA International's website.  Then when we import a new list, your information should appear correct on our local website.  We will be importing a new list every month, or as needed, so that we keep our Member List current.
