There are parties; there are celebrations. There are fêtes; there are even galas. And then there’s OUR holiday season and year-end bash!

On Friday, December 13th, RTI will welcome the members of the four Fanthropy Running Clubs and their guests for a night of well-mannered frivolity:
 
The Fourth Annual RTI Yule Ball!
The attire for the evening is Wizarding Formal / Time Lord Formal / “Geek Prom Formal.” Basically, your finest cosplay from any fandom…as long as it’s formal/semi-formal. Gowns, dress robes, formal English wear, and muggle “black-tie” are preferred, but dresses or suit and tie are the minimum.
 
The event will take place from 7:00 PM to Midnight on December 13th at the incredible Bill Miller’s Castle in Branford, Connecticut….less than one mile from RTI HQ!

Tickets are $65 per person and include a fully catered geeky-themed meal. Please note that the Yule Ball is a formal event and we are charged per head…regardless of the size of that head. While children are permitted, please be aware that youth tickets are the same price as adult tickets. Also, please keep in mind that the event, the meal, and the music will be intended for an adult audience, so please consider if the event is appropriate for your child.
We will finalize the menu (which will have vegetarian (lacto-ovo) options) as we get closer to the event and we will update you in the Great Hall/TARDIS/Luke’s/Fan Domain. We obviously cannot meet every dietary restriction, but please let us know if you have any significant allergies or dietary needs and we will do our best to accommodate requests. The wonderful folks at Bill Miller’s Castle have never failed to meet our dietary requests.
 
For those who are not local, we’ve prepared an RTI Yule Ball “Travel Codex” with airline, lodging, ground transportation, and other information for you. Download a copy for yourself!
And have you ever wanted to be a House Elf and take part in a PHRC medal pack? Here’s your chance! The Yule Ball is on Friday and we’ll be doing the Time Turner medal packing on Saturday and Sunday (14th and 15th)! If you want to volunteer for “House Elf Duties” simply let us know when you purchase your tickets. If you can’t help out, you are welcome to stop by anytime, say hello, and pick up your medals!
 
See you in December!!
