The games go on — at the same place in Tustin, 10:00 a.m. I called Ruby’s Diner today, but the manager said that due to the Spring break, the place cannot accommodate us for the games on 4–7-16. But we will be able to play there on April 21, 2016. There are prizes for: winning 3 games, highest scoring game, highest cumulative score, high-point bingo word, and the most bonus words played.
PLEASE CONFIRM. If you’re new, call Maliha for direction, text at 714-654-4308 or email email@example.com.
