With the right people, any ordinary occasion becomes a spectacular time.

That is truth, if you’re part of the “Women’s Long Creek Bunco Gang,” which meets twice a month at our community center.

Young and not-as-young are welcome. The only requirement is to have fun.

This is just another example of self-sufficiency in an isolated area, inherent from the early pioneer days.

Bunco is a fast, high-charged, dice rolling game that the Lady Creekers have played for many years.

It’s an evening out with good friends, good food, and a lot of laughing and sharing during the rotations from one table to another. Ringing of the bell starts each game, tallies are kept, and winners are rewarded with gifts provided by the hostess of the evening from the entrance fees paid by each player.
