Robb and I were able to host our first party in September. My running club has an annual membership meeting/party and this year we offered to host it. Besides the 5-10 minutes of discussing actual club business, it was a good party. The chili cook-off this year only had three entries (when last year's chili cook-off had like 10 choices), but the food was still yummy. And of course, the most important part of the fall membership meeting was our annual underwear run. While the men actually stripped to their underwear, the women changed into boxers and t-shirts to run down the street into the dark. (I made sure that our run headed away from our landlord's house.) Most people hung out on our back porch all night, snacking, drinking, and overflowing into the yard. It was a good night and a successful party.
