I love BUNCO! If you don’t know what it is… you are missing out of some serious fun. Now I don’t buy into the fact that BUNCO is just for the ladies… granted most of the time I have played it’s been with gals but still there is nothing inherently female about it. Except of course when you throw in hot pink zebra print and fuzzy dice… I guess we’ve made it into a pretty sweet Ladies Night In!
This time around our BUNCO Ladies Night was being thrown for the very specific purpose of bonding a group of our Thursday Night Young Married women. We have all attended Young Marrieds Cafe with our spouses for a while and yet there hasn’t been a whole lot of mingling between the small group tables that exist. A simple solution to getting the ball rolling (or shall I say dice rolling) is to bring the group together outside of church and facilitate some fun friendly competiton.
We threw in a fun theme of course because when I first hatched this idea of hosting another BUNCO Ladies Night it was Derby Season at the Del Mar Race Tracks so I could already imagine the awesome group picture of all of us wearing BIG derby style hats to our BUNCO night. Hence our fantastic theme: BIG HATS and BUNCO!
We were also fortunate enough to have a cause to play for this time around. We have been blessed by a great missionary couple Issa and Abi Haddad for about 6 months as they have faithfully attended our Young Married’s group while preparing to go back to Jordan. All the money we raised (and more) went to supporting their missions work.
