The Big 5-0
Saturday March 16, 2019 my wife helped my throw an all day game day for about 50 of my friends. We rented a room at the Dayton Liederkranz-Turner German Club, a location we already have a game night at once a month. We scheduled it from 12pm-8pm and arrived a few hours early to set up. We started with laying out snacks and donuts, drinks and coffee for everyone. We were sitting there at 11:45 wondering if anyone was going to show up. Before long, most of the tables were full. I started with a game of Jamaica, because it played a large number of players and didn’t take too long. We opened up the bar, and that seemed to go over pretty well. The lunch meat and buns were all gone by about 4pm or 5pm so we ordered some pizzas to keep the party going.
Stephen and AJ had a new puppy and brought it along. Cindi had me hold it a while, hoping I might want to adopt one of its siblings. Fortunately for us, they also have a monthly meet up at their house — so we can just visit their puppy and not have to have our own.
Overall, it was a great day. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to play games with everyone, but did my best to move around and say hello to everyone and make sure everyone seemed to be having fun. Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate, and to those who were there at the end and helped clean up.
