Bunco Party

For my visiting family’s last evening in Jacksonville, I decided to host a Bunco Party with our neighbors and friends. Prior to their visit, when I sent John a list of possible activities for the week and it included Bunco Party, he said everything sounds great but the Bunco Party. What he didn’t realize was that was the one activity that was NOT optional. Poor John. Made to socialize and made to play games…two of his favorite things.

We invited our friends from Card Club (Dee, Eddy, Pat and Don) and our neighbors (Bill, Dedie, Bill, Susan, Jim and Pam) and some friends (Lisa and Doug).

All told, we had 17 players, or 4 tables of 4 players.

John was the permanent substitute, filling in for Susan until she arrived and for Pam while she had to leave for a while.

John didn’t want to admit it but he actually had fun, especially when he got Bunco and was able to wear the pretty necklace.

Everyone put in $5 for prizes and at the end of the evening, I won $25 for Most Buncos and $10 for First Bunco and Carl won $10 for Most Wins. All of our guests thought it was rigged and said if we wanted them to pay us to come over, we should have just asked. Sorry friends!

It was a really fun week having mom, John and Laurie visit. I am so happy that they all came to spend time with us.

I’m hoping that now that they are on the same side of the country as us, we will be able to get together on a more regular basis. We look forward to visiting them in Edwardsville, IL once their new home is completed.

Thank you all for coming. We will miss you.

  2. It was a fun night to end our visit even though Carl and I tied for most wins. We had to do a roll off on the dice and Carl won, lucky guy. All of the neighbors and friends are wonderful people so it was a great night. I hope to see them all again next year for Bunco night, Thank you Kristy and Carl for a wonderful week and for being such a great host and hostess and making more memories.
