Once again the hill is the venue for a forum party and you are all invited to attend
The party is to celebrate Valentine's Day and also to celebrate the success of our OCD Week and will start this evening and carry on through to the end of Valentine’s Day on Monday. By having the party over several days this will give more people the opportunity to join in the fun
The theme of the party will be Romantic Characters from History or Fiction, and will take the form of a fancy dress ball. You don’t have to pick a character, you could make one up, but it would be nice if you came in fancy dress.
Upon joining the party please introduce yourself by saying who you’ve come as and please describe your costume
The scene is set – at considerable expense the hill has temporarily been removed and in it’s place there is now a stunning set resembling Venice. The historic buildings are all there as are the canals, complete with gondolas and handsome gondoliers who will take you on a magical trip around Venice. The whole area inside and out is decked in fairy lights and thanks to the magic of cyber space the weather will be warm and dry throughout the party.
The party is being held in a replica of the historic Doge's Palace next to the Bridge of Sighs, but you are free and safe to wander and explore the buildings and canals. Please let others know if you find anything exciting or unusual.
There is an endless supply of the food of your choice set out on large banqueting tables and there are servants dressed in costumes waiting to attend to your every need. We have also brought to this party the magical drinks fountain from the Christmas party. Around the base of the fountain are hundreds of lights, each light representing a different drink so you can choose whatever drink that you wish.
There is also the cloakroom from our last party, complete with the lady that can wave her magic wand and give you any fancy dress costume that you choose The cloakroom is situated in an ornate building next to the main entrance gate.
A large notice is attached to the ornate entrance gate stating
So let's let our hair down and enjoy ourselves and explore the ingenuity and talents of our members and have some fun. OK, so basic forum rules still apply but I am sure that will not get in the way of some enjoyment and we will excuse a few "slips of the tonge (or should that be keyboard)"
See you all at the party
