What: First Bunko Night of 2011
Who’s Invited: Any and all Parkwood ladies (sorry guys, no boys allowed)
Where: Karna and Scotty Candler’s home, 220 Upland Road
When: Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011 at 7 p.m.
Details: Women of Parkwood, please join us at the Candlers’ home for another rousing evening of Bunko — the mindless dice game that’s really an excuse to eat, drink, and chat with your neighbors! Bring a bottle of wine and/or a snack to share, $5 in ones to throw in the pot, and yourself. Please RSVP to Katie Black so they’ll have some idea of how many tables to set up. See you next Tuesday!
We have volunteers for February, March, and April now. Thank you volunteers!
Katie hosted the first Bunko of the Fall season back on Sept. 28, 2010, and Mary K Jarboe hosted the second Bunko night on Oct. 26, 2010 (thanks Katie & Mary K!). To participate in Bunko nights, all you have to do is:
1.) be a woman (I didn’t know this until I tried to invite my husband!)
2.) bring $5 in ones with you for the pot
3.) bring either a bottle of wine or snack to share
What IS Bunko you ask? According to Wikipedia, Bunko is “a social dice game involving 100% luck and no skill (there are no decisions to be made), scoring and a simple set of rules…The object of the game is to accumulate points and to roll certain combinations. The winners get prizes (provided by the hostess or pooled from the club resources) for accomplishments such as the highest score, the lowest score, or the most bunkos.”
Losing with the lowest score isn’t so bad, and I should know because September’s lowest-scoring player was ME! You get your $5 back for the lowest score with this group.
Refreshments are decadent (ChocoVine is especially popular), appetizers are irresistible (think cheese, nuts, olives, & dips), and the company is riveting — and Bunko night is a great way to meet your neighbors, or to welcome them if you are hostess!
