An annual invitational party hosted by Bruce and Dian Pelz beginning in the late 60s.

It began as a wine and cheese party to be hosted by David Hulan at his house in January 1968, but shortly before the party news arrived of the death of Ron Ellik. Hulan rescheduled the party for February, but, again, just before the date Lee Jacobs died of a heart attack. Hulan declined to reschedule it again for fear the death list might grow.

The following February, in honor of Ellik and Jacobs, it was hosted by Bruce and Dian Pelz without fatal incident and they continued to host it in their honor each February (though some years February had considerably more than the usual number of days.)
