I have to tell you that I simply cannot keep up with all of the good things volunteers in Comanche have going on these days, but if you’ve been looking for a way to get involved, you can pretty much have your pick of groups and activities to join! The one we want to feature today is headed up by Pam Bills and her group, who are planning a night of fun for everyone.
The end of the story is that we are all going to be going to a Bunco Party, where there will be a prize for absolutely everyone. Of course, since I don’t have a clue what a Bunco Party is, I had to sit down and get Pam to spell it all out for me. Here’s how it works:
Tickets to the event are $20.00 each, and absolutely all of the proceeds will go to Revitalize Comanche, Inc. So, the first thing we need to do is buy a ticket. Then, on November 10, we will all head over to the First United Methodist Church Life Center at 6:30 p.m. where Pam and the others will have a room full of tables (all numbered) set for four set up and ready for us. Each time will have 3 dice, paper, and pencil on it.
Now, if you are totally lost, do not feel badly. I’ve never done this either so I had Pam spell it out slowly.
1. The first player rolls the dice. Each 6 he rolls earns 1 point. If he is lucky enough to roll 3 sixes, that is a Bunco and is worth 7 points. That player continues to roll until he rolls no 6, and the turn goes to the second player.
2. If at any time a player rolls 3 ones, he loses all of his points.
3. When someone at the #1 table reaches a score of 21, a cowbell will ring, and everyone will trade seats, continuing to play with new people.
4. After the last game is played (and I’m still a little foggy on this), prizes are distributed. Pam assures me that everyone will get a prize and that they have some pretty cool items!
Obviously, there will be snacks and cookies, and it sounds like a fun way to raise some money for a great cause. If you would like to donate a prize, contact Pam at the Courthouse Square Mall on the north side of the square in Comanche.
See you in November!
