New Years - Party in Every Time Zone


It's the morning after the big party. A few of us gathered in Old Comms (under the Dome) to start the festivities. The NSF Ops Rep was 'cutting the rug' with every available female. Next we set off for the Vehicle Maintenance Facility aka 'The Heavy Shop' which was turned into the party house. Outfitted with a stage, dance cage, and parachute drape, everyone turned out and enjoyed live band performances and drank alcohol poured down a slab of Antarctica ice. Dancers had to get used to the oil slick floor. I guess kitty litter was never brought down.

At midnight the 'ball' dropped and we all raced out to the Pole for pictures.
