We know that our Diving Rebels members strive to be excellent divers—now let’s see if we have any master dessert chefs among us! Show us your skills—what have you got to lose? We double-dog dare you to put your dessert recipes to the test at the 8th Annual Diving Rebels Dessert Competition held during our Annual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 8, 2018!! 
Prizes will be awarded for the best dessert entries!
We will award 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place prizes for the desserts exhibiting the best presentation, design, originality, taste, appearance, and creativity.
Be aware of the following:
 Register your dessert for the competition between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm. NO late entrants will be judged.
 Desserts cannot be store bought. Store-bought entries will be disqualified.

Diving Rebels Christmas Party
Gift Exchange!!!
1. Drop off and register your gift between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm. A new gift worth between $20 and $25 is required to participate, and no gifts will be accepted for the exchange after 7:15 pm.
2. You will receive an envelope with a number inside it that will be used to determine the order in which gifts are selected by the participants. Keep the envelope closed until you are asked to open it.
3. When the gift exchange begins, you will be asked to open your envelopes, and the MC will draw numbers at random. If the first number called is, for example, #15, the person with #15 in his/her envelope will select the first gift; if the second number called is #6, the person with #6 in his/her envelope will select the second gift, and so on. These exchanges will take no more than 10 minutes!
Bring a gift to exchange, and have some Christmas fun!!!
