1. When is the big event?
Thursday, February 12th, 2009
2. Where will the game be held?
Cimarron Montessori School - 419 West Maple. The game will be held in the gym. The entrance is on the West side of the school. Limited parking is located on the North and West side of the school. Parking is also available on the South side of the school.
3. Why are we playing?
This event will be a fundraiser organized by Amina Switzer and Hannah Esquibel as a part of their Girl Scout Bronze Award.
The Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can earn, requires her to learn the leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through on a project that makes a positive impact on her community. Working towards this award demonstrates her commitment to helping others, improving her community and the world, and becoming the best she can be.
4. What will the money be used for?
The proceeds will be used to purchase food items used in the Food 4 Kids backpack program through the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
An emergency food assistance program of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Food 4 Kids is designed especially for elementary age children. Chronically hungry children identified by school personnel receive a backpack filled with non-perishable, child-friendly food for over the weekend or a school holiday.
Amina and Hannah will purchase food items to be donated to the program and will travel to Oklahoma City to visit the Food Bank and to participate in assembling the backpacks for distribution.
5. What time does the game start/end?
Our event will start at 6:30 with light snacks and drinks. Game play will start at around 7 pm. We will likely play 3 games of 5 rounds each and hope to finish by 9 pm.
6. How do you play bunco?
The official game instructions/rules for our game are posted here: http://kidoctr.blogspot.com/2009/01/bunco-for-backpacks-official.html During the game, Amina and Hannah will be in charge of the Head Table and Eve will be the official referee.
7. How much will it cost?
Players are asked to make a minimum donation of $10 but may donate more if they wish. Even if you can't play, donations are certainly welcome.
8. What do I need to bring?
Just your donation and fun-loving excitement! Cash is preferred. We'll take care of the food, drinks, and game supplies. Bunco is an easy game to play and especially fun with an enthusiastic group.
9. Will there be prizes awarded?
Prizes will be awarded for the most wins, losses, baby buncos, and wipeouts. The grand prize of the evening will be a Chinese dinner for 2 at the home of Eve and Seth Switzer (date to be determined later) for the player who rolls the most buncos. In the event of a tie, there will be a roll-off.
