We are looking to start up our BUNKO night again this fall which will be held on the third Wednesday of the Fall/Winter/Spring months at the club. This is really fun dice game.

We will need to know who is interested in playing this season by October 10th. If you played last season please make a phone call to Karen Smorol at 315-278-7829 to confirm that you will be continuing this season as we don’t want to assume anyone will continue this year unless we know for sure. If you are interested in joining as a new player, please contact Karen so that you can be put on the list. 

We will need some substitutes so if you can’t commit to play once a month give Dolores a call and she can put you on the

sub list.

Our start date will be Wednesday, October 16th at 7:00 pm

The cost per person is $10.00 a month with the first month paying $20.00 (holding $10 in your account in case you cannot play and do not get a sub). It is your responsibility to get the sub. They do not need to be club members. Prizes will be awarded to the lst, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th place winners along with a most BUNKO’s winner and of course a Boobie prize as well.

As in past seasons if you want to bring a snack to pass it will be welcomed! Please

We will be having a Gemutlichkeit meeting on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30 p.m. for everyone interested in

helping us out for this fun event! For those of you new to Gemütlichkeit, it’s a Sauerbraten dinner we hold annually

as a fundraiser for our club with games, raffles for our members and their family & friends.

As always, we need as many volunteers as possible.

To volunteer in the kitchen, serving dinners, busing tables, pouring coffee, etc. – Please contact Judy Bacon

To sell raffle tickets, please contact Kathy Nolan

In addition, door prizes are always needed. A small turkey, a bottle of wine, etc. are great raffle prizes.

Last year we had a GREAT turnout with basket raffles and thank everyone for their donations. This year we want to do

the same thing so let’s see our inner club groups get “creative” and donate a basket to help our club with our expenses.

If you don’t bowl or play bunco, etc. please feel free to donate one from your family or get a few friends to get one

together. We all know that the “More the Merrier”! Any questions on these basket raffles please see Kathy Nolan.
