The usual Barbara's Bunch description follows.

============================================

Another Combined-Group Event!

 

The gaming group known as Barbara's Bunch invites members of San Diego Boardgames Group to game nights in University City on the FIRST Saturday of each month, usually at 7pm. University City, as most of you may know, is part of the "Golden Triangle" area to the east of La Jolla. This is a BYOJF event. PLEASE RSVP right away so we can get an idea of how many are interested. The address and phone will be provided later to those who RSVP "Yes". PLEASE NOTE: This host household does include pets (1 dog).

BARBARA'S BUNCH is a group that has been playing games here in San Diego for over 18 years -- since 1993. This Saturday's event, like most of their events, may include several kinds of games. There could be strategy games like Settlers of Catan and Zooloretto at one table, word games like Scrabble and My Word! at another table, party games like Taboo and Catch Phrase at yet another table. In other words, there should be a variety of games and game styles to fit your mood, much like our own game nights.

BYOJF? -- Means BRING YOUR OWN JUNK FOOD, of course! This event is being hosted in a private home, not a restaurant where you can buy munchies. Any kind of snack foods/beverages to share are welcome (and usually demolished!), SO BRING -- Games/Snacks/Beverages, and a friend (PLEASE make sure to add them in your RSVP)!

Member-swapping could benefit both groups! These co-hosted events have worked out quite well even from the beginning, and have been posted here for our group on a regular basis ever since. Of course, we'll want to welcome their members to join us too at our usual game nights.

Do any of us want to consider carpooling up there? Post a note about it here in the event. Also, PLEASE, PLEASE feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions/questions/problems. Thanks! -- Randy

WED 29 Jun[masked]:50pm -- Watch for UPDATES. An email will be sent the day of the event (and maybe notices a day or two before) to the members who have RSVP'd YES or MAYBE. Please wait until the day of the event, and if you do not receive the email with location information, please use the phone number at the top to contact the host right away. PLEASE WAIT FOR THE ADDRESS TO BE EMAILED. Thanks! Randy

WED 29 Jun[masked]:50pm -- The RSVP limit was increased some months ago. The Barbara's Bunch events now have a seating limit of 22 instead of 17.  Limit/Waiting List will not be affected by Barbara's Bunch members.  BB members, please go ahead and RSVP.  I'll adjust the RSVP limit accordingly.

SAT 01 Oct[masked]:18 am -- JSYK (just so you know) -- SDBG has some "crossover" members who originated from Barbara's Bunch (and/or Phoenix Games Group or Gamesters as applicable). An RSVP here from a crossover member doesn't affect our attendance limit, as they're expected to be there anyway. If I see their RSVP, I just bump up our limit so they're not keeping another member on the waiting list.

    Sorry I couldn't make it after all. I heard y'all had fun!

    Death in the family last night.

    I'm still hoping to show up for a while, but it won't be until later on... not sure what time.

    Hi, I know this is a little late, but if someone has a cardtable they could bring, I may need one. Thanks. Really looking forward to tonight.

  • CAROLYN K.

    Thanks but something has come up and I won't be able to make it after all - so invite the next person on the waiting list. I'll also notify Randy to make sure he knows. I hope I'll be able to join you soon.

    August 3, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Hi Carolyn, Thanks for letting me know about your RSVP change, though the best way is for you just to change it yourself to a "NO" here on the page. I have the Waiting List set to automatic, so it will notify the next available person when a spot opens up. Right now, that's moot because there are open spots anyway. I'll change your RSVP this time. Looking forward to meeting you at another event!

      August 3, 2013

  • Randy W.

    Hi Everybody!

    Yes, it's on! Please update your RSVP's! Enjoy!

      Randy, did you want to uncount me in the number of folks attending since I'm a member of Barbara's bunch?

      August 1, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Different circumstances this time, Rich.

      August 3, 2013

  • Marcia W.

    So glad it is back on! I will bring some games!

    August 1, 2013

  • Marcia W.

    Is this evet still on? I had heard some word that it might be cancelled. Any updates?

    July 25, 2013

    • Randy W.

      No longer looking... Cancelling for lack of a host. Shucks!

      July 25, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Oh, wait! Hold that thought... There may still be hope. Stay tuned, folks!

    I live in Kensungton, and if there is an interest, I could perhaps host. Randy, do you want to let me know what is generally needed for this event?

    July 26, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Hi Linda, thank you so much! I got your email last night too (as well as another similar response from another member). I'll reply there. Have a great day!

      July 27, 2013

  • Laura G.

    I have family coming in this weekend. Have to miss this month

    July 23, 2013

    • Randy W.

      That's all right, Laura. Everyone will miss it this month, as it's being cancelled. Have fun visiting with your family!

  • ~Kris (aka A.

    Can someone remind me who's house it was on Madra we did a Sat night at a few months ago? I need to contact him to go pick up my game instructions that got left behind. I thought I would meet up with them at another event, but it never happened. Thanks.

    July 22, 2013

    • Randy W.

      Walt and Jackie's is correct. I've sent you an email, Ariel.

      July 23, 2013

    • ~Kris (aka A.

      Yes, I got it, thank you randy, and Theresa also for the private email.

      July 23, 2013

  • Theresa K.

    Randy -- has someone stepped up to host the August Barbara's Bunch? It wouldn't be good to have a bunch of people show up at Barbara's house unexpectedly.

    July 22, 2013

    • Randy W.

      If no host steps up, I am not going to leave the event posted. People will be notified of cancellation.

      Speaking of which, I was going to ask you, Theresa, if you would be the one to step up and host this time while Barbara is away in August. Ralph is very busy and won't be filling in this time. I'm guessing it's not a good time for you either, eh? ttyl

      July 22, 2013

    • ~Kris (aka A.

      Maybe Lesley who wanted them to be further East could host. Perhaps you could send her an email in case she has her settings only to get moderator emails.

      July 22, 2013

  • Marcia W.

    Can't wait. Been too long since I've been to one of these Meetups.

    July 21, 2013

  • Lesley

    Can any of these game-night be moved more in the Mission Valley area or A bit more East?

    July 12, 2013

    • Rich E

      And note that the Sat night games are at the southern end of University City, not all that far from Mission Valley.

      July 12, 2013

    • Theresa K.

      Also, if you know of a good location that we could use, let Randy (the group organizer know) and he can set that up as a location for Sundays -- or let you schedule and host an event there.

      July 12, 2013

  • NancY

    Since these events are generally held at the host's residence, I don't think they can be moved, as such.

    July 12, 2013

  • ~Kris (aka A.

    Where is this one going to be held? Barbara is not hosting in August.

    July 8, 2013

    • Theresa K.

      I hadn't heard that but I know she usually is on vacation in August. I thought maybe that wouldn't be the case this year since she was on vacation in June (when we met at Ralph's.)

      July 8, 2013

    • ~Kris (aka A.

      No, she told us she will be working an event at the Scottish Rites center.
