Greetings!

Secure your spot AND mark your calendar for these fun, educational, and deliciously entertaining networking opportunities THIS summer!

The PAYDAY game networking night was a blast! The person with the most money in the end wins ( I had won the game with $32,500 cash , Peter was second place with a figure in the $27,000 range and Robert placed third with $24,000 range of cash on hand). The sushi or chicken teriyaki game night was also a blast! I had won the 4 games we played of "Befuddled" (word game similar to Scrabble), so rest assured I am good with words. I did win my third grade spelling bee! :)

There's still 2 spots available for the Scopa National Italian card game and homemade Tacoma Boys pizza night that takes place NEXT Tuesday evening (NOT tomorrow Tuesday) , below so be sure to secure your ticket(s) BY THIS FRIDAY BY 12 (noon) for the early bird rate. 3+ spots still available for the Odd Jobs networking game night (which you can see was a hit last summer, first picture of attendees in the first picture of this newsletter).
EVENT #1: Have an Italian evening complete with the traditional Italian card game "Scopa" as well as eat one of the best homemade, fresh, and best tasting pizzas LOCALLY from Tacoma Boys in Puyallup. The sauce is homemade and the pizza will have double pepperoni on it & tastes like nothing from the local pizza chains and isn't greasy either!

"Scopa" is the National Card game of Italy that everyone can enjoy. Lively and colorful Scopa cards make for a fun & fast paced game where skill and chance rule, while the specially designed scoring boards makes score keeping easy. For up to 4 players.

Join me & other business owners, career seekers, business professionals, & practically anyone else, except kids on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 6 pm to 8 pm in the upstairs room of the Daffodil Bowling alley located at: 1624 E. Main Street, Puyallup, WA 98372 . We will start promptly at 6 pm where I will introduce myself, one minute intros of the attendees will take place, the opportunity to pass out business cards and flyers, and then we will dive right into the game, eat pizza, pack up, and be out no later than 8 pm. There is another event (NOT mine) in the room we will be in at 8 pm, so PLEASE do know we will be out NO later than 8 pm so please plan accordingly (be on time and take your chatting elsewhere outside of the room). **IF YOU ARE SICK OF ANY KIND, please do NOT come to the event (regardless if you think it's a minor cold, flu, etc). I repeat it's no joking matter you can spread symptoms to others that are way worse, please stay home.**
