Announcing Enrichment Nights, are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. If in doubt, check the Calendar link above.  The event will be held at the same location as the Thursday and Saturday DBSA meetings in Room A on the 2nd floor at Torrance Memorial Hospital.  This is an opportunity to work on any independent project, creative pursuit, or activity that could be done in the company of others.  You choose what you want to work on, and then bring your supplies to do the activity among your friends.  We will be “doing our own thing” together. 

Examples of activities you might choose to work on: journaling, scrapbooking, crafting, knitting/crocheting, reading, coloring, job search, homework, correspondence (writing letters / greeting cards), puzzles, etc. 

We have the room from 6 - 9 PM.  You may come and go as you please—drop in whenever you want and stay as long as you like, similar to an Open House.   You are welcome to bring snacks for yourself or to share with others. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me:

I hope to see you there!

DBSA GAME NIGHT & DBSA ENRICHMENT NIGHT

Hello DBSA South Bay members,

Announcing Game Nights, are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. If in doubt, check the Calendar link above.  The event will be held at the same location as the Thursday and Saturday DBSA meetings in Room A on the 2nd floor at Torrance Memorial Hospital in Torrance.  Please be on time, as we will start exactly at 6:30pm.  Past game nights have proven to be a lot of fun!  So, come and forget about your woes for two hours!

GAMES AND SNACKS
We encourage everyone to bring any snacks and drinks they may want during the gaming session. Snacks and drinks will not be provided, so if everyone can chip in by bringing the snacks or drinks of their choice it would be greatly appreciated. You are welcome to bring enough snacks for the group to share if you choose to do so but it will not be a requirement.  We will also need people to bring games!!! Please bring any board games, group games or card games that you may have. You are not required to bring games to attend, however the more variety that we have the better! You are free to bring the games of your choice.

GAMES
Here are some examples of really fun games you may already have or choose to purchase to bring to game night:
Uno, Balderdash, Apples to Apples, Taboo, Cards against Humanity, Time’s Up, Dominos, Scrabble, Chinese Checkers, Regular deck of cards, Say Anything, VH1 I love the 80’s board game, Saturday Night live board game, Cranium, Codenames, Pandemic Legacy, Rotten Apples, Mind Trap, Wits & Wagers, Monopoly, Risk, Clue, Yahtzee, Pictionary, Sorry, and Trivial Pursuit.
You can purchase these games at places like Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Kmart, Thrift stores, or you can choose to order them for delivery online.

RULES
Depending on how many people attend, we will break up into smaller groups so that DBSA members can play the games of their choice. There will be a designated group leader for each group. This person will read the instructions and rules of the game, and if the game requires a bank such as in monopoly the group leader will be the designated banker or facilitator for that particular game.

Please keep in mind this is a game night, so we ask that everyone in the group treats their fellow members with respect. No cursing, name calling or arguing, it’s a game night so this is supposed to be fun!!
