I am "Piggybacking" off the 30s & 40s Going out group. They already have 60 people signed up to this event!! From their group: We’ll meet up outside at the Connecticut Avenue main entrance (just behind the large concrete “Zoo” sign and the two large lion statues) at 2pm. Please be ON TIME! I’ll be the one with a red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size) with the word “ACK” on it. If you’ve done one of our scavenger hunts before, you’ll know we get a fresh set of clues / questions each and every hunt. We will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines. The teams disperse and the 2-hour hunt begins starting at 2:30pm. Teams will have until 4:30pm to decipher the clues and solve the riddles. The hunt will take us through numerous exhibits, collections, and artifacts! At 4:30pm we will collect the results, score each team, and announce the winner. A pair of movie tickets will be awarded to each member of the winning team (you must be present to claim your prize)! Any tiebreaker goes to the team that finishes earlier. Following the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby spot for food, drinks, and a recap of the afternoon! If you haven’t been there before, the National Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the United States, with 1800 animals of 300 different species. One-fifth of them are endangered or threatened. The best known residents are the giant pandas, and it’s also home to birds, great apes, big cats, Asian elephants, insects, amphibians, reptiles, aquatic animals, small mammals, and many more! Please note the event ticket price goes towards the contracting company we hire to devise the scavenger hunt package, to include questions, answer key, and rules, as well as prizes for the winning team. Any remainder goes towards our Meetup group fees and expenses.

If you are late (arrive after the start time of 2pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for some or all of the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver’s license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say “Welcome, [your account name]” at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP’d under someone else’s payment, please use that name for check-in. ********************************************************************************* We can Metro up there, as the event gets closer I will start posting

Crossroads Tavern in Manassas is reserving the top floor for us and we are going to have a blast!! THE FOOD IS FANTASTIC!!!!! WHAT IS BUNCO? Bunco is a social dice game, traditionally played with 12 players or more.... who are divided into tables with four players at each table. These are the Bunco basics: A game of Bunco is played in two to four sets, with six rounds in each set. A player at the head table rings a bell to signal the beginning and end of each round. During the game, players at each table take turns rolling three dice to try and earn points. All tables play simultaneously. During each round, players attempt to roll the same number as the number of the round (for example, rolling three 3's die3.gif die3.gif die 3.gif in Round 3 would earn the player points). For every number rolled that matches the round number, one point is awarded to that player. A player keeps rolling until they score no points. The scorekeeper then records the score they earned onto the table tally as the temporary team score. Then the dice are passed to the player on the left. When the head table has earned 21 points, the round is over. The head table rings a bell to signal that the round has ended. At the end of every round, players change partners and/or tables. At the end of a game, there are typically multiple "winners." The player(s) with the most Buncos, wins, losses, etc, may earn prizes for their successes. Of course....we will go over the details when you arrive!!
