In other words, a game that takes no skill, you can play it and socialize, munch and mingle, and have beverages. We laughed so hard last night I about peed my pants.

Could be a problem

We do it once a month, and it is our neighborhood group. About the only time some of us get to see each other, yet we live just a street or two apart. Just a chance for girls - no husbands or kids - and we can all walk home for those who have too much to drink.
If you get a group together I would love to play. DD (Emily, 23) would like to play as long as she is not the only young person. She didn't say that but I could see it in her eyes

I can bring dice (red, black, white), 'round tally sheets', 'master score sheet', bell (?), anything else?

Excellent plan. Businesses and governments should be run as efficiently.

Wow!! That sounds great, count me in!! I have sparkly Minnie ears we use for the current "bunco queen" to wear! (we use a tiara and whoever rolls a bunco gets to wear the tiara until someone different rolls a bunco and then it is passed along)

Yeah no complaints here, lets get started.

That allows the weekend for organizers as suggested. If no objections, I will also post on Facebook an advance warning for organizers not regularly on DIS (so they also have a heads-up).

Event organizers at that time will each just repond with a very quick PLACEHOLDER as a reply. That will hold their spot on page one. I believe we can have only 15 posts per page, but it does not matter how long the post is -- just 15 posts. So for now you can write "PLACEHOLDER" and then go back and edit as necessary after you have that slot secured. The important thing is to snag your spot first, and then you can go back later and edit. If you are coordinating multiple events (such as lanyards, precruise meet, group hotel, toddler play group, and embarkation meet and greet) then that can all go into one post to ensure as we can only have 15 posts total.

See example here as I will follow this format. (Even my original post will just have DO NOT WRITE ON HERE YET!! Except for Organizers doing placeholders" in super huge bright red. Just in case someone stumbles across it - which we did have happen before.

When our new Part Two thread is ready, I will then:
- post link to this Part One
- in huge letters ask people to not post here anymore
- ask moderator to close Part One (no more edits could be made)
- ask moderator to add to list of cruise meets

The moderator is already aware we are nearing the 250 pages and the desire of many to include pertinent info on page one.

We will work with Chris to do any website link updates like the posts I shared yesterday. He is playing around in London again this weekend (something he keeps trying to pass off as "work" ) so do not expect any updates on his end until next weekend. ( You know I'm just kidding with you right? We you!!)

Any thoughts or concerns?

Benefits:
- places all updated information on page one of DIS with ability to edit
- ability to link specific posts to website as well for those who use website
- helps rally new cruisers as they join - all current info on one page
- efficiency of finding most info updated on one page, with all organizers already knowing how to edit a post on DIS
- the new thread gives us a fresh start at 250 pages to last us 112 days until embarkation (or we can start Part Three if needed)

Cons:
- ?

Mandy and Sarah (binkytel) seem to be right on top of things. I would appreciate their help with the new thread

So let's make it an "official" event! I have never played before but my mom is so into it so we will try it out with her. This Emily still sees herself as a 23 year old, does that count? My 26 year old sister will be there. Any chance you want to take on organizing this?

Sure, but I must remind you I am a Bunco virgin. I have the game but have never played!

Just keep a list of who is signing up on your "organizer" post
Pick a date, time, and location - and bring those items you mentioned
If we end up with 12 players, we only need 3 tables of four - so definitely easy to do it in various locations onboard (and even have a backup location in case there's an event going on on the location you set up). We just crash whatever location you determine

I am working on Post #1 now of new thread and put you down, will also included you after 2:00 Galveston time today in the PM going out

It is!! I never really played until last Spring - definitely fun and a great way to mingle. You swap tables after every round so constantly getting to rotate who you sit with briefly to chit chat

I needed a "fun day" after state testing one year while teaching, but it had to be educational in some way, so we worked on our math skills with Bunco
