New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter Red Hatters Enjoy Games Day

Saturday, July 23, 2016

Members of New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico enjoyed playing games of "Farkle" and "Racko" on Saturday, July 23, 2016 in the home of their Queen Ladybird aka Carla Kerr.

It was decided that "Racko" would henceforth be known as the "Dorothy Smith" Game because she won every round. Everyone brought sack lunches and tea, coffee and a delicious (they said it was anyway) dessert of peach cobbler were provided by Queen Ladybird. Much enjoyable conversation ensued and everyone had a grand time. Members were provided bags to gather peaches from the tree to take home with them.

We had such a FUN time and will be doing this again. We try to have a games day at least every other month. We are hoping it stretches our brains by learning new games.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photography for his very capable photography.

This is all I have to say for now.
