Subject: Post

This game was played on another forum I used to frequent, so I thought I would try it here. (if it has already been done, please just let me fade away quietly :)

The point is to announce arrivals to the Ball of your choice. One combination is to announce a Mr and Mrs and then their offspring......the first name of the offspring combined with the family name, is losely suggestive of something pertaining to that Ball. Like so:

Announcing arrivals to the Musicians Ball:

They had a rocky start, but are finally here: Mr and Mrs Ling Stones and their errant son Ro Ling Stones.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Or, the guests could just be a couple and the shortened version of their names is indicative of the Ball theme, like so:

A warm welcome please, to Theodore and Monica Keys.....otherwise known as The & Mon Keys.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Another idea for a Ball is the Food and Beverage Ball:

Announcing from France, the ever tasteful Monsieur et Madame Tay, and their daughter, Pat Tay.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, does it make sense? Does it sound like fun? I will start us off with a continuation of the Food and Beverage Ball. (feel FREE to change the Ball at anytime)

Please check the guest list for Mr. Salsa and his offspring: Chip S, Ann Salsa.

Well, while I was at the Liberty Ball, we had to introduce ourselves. My favorite was the lady who introduced herself and family, "I'm Joanne, this is daughter Sally, husband Thomas, Jeff, our son.

"It really is Mr Horace Ontil," he said levelly.
