I had never been to one of these before so upon arrival I collected my cup with my fake $1,000 bill in it and headed off to cash it in for chips. The room was a bit overwhelming with all of the tables (but the decorations looked great!!) so I picked "craps" first. I had never played before but it seemed like the loudest, most entertaining table in the room. I had also heard that nights like this are a great way to learn how to play. It's a pretty nifty idea...the people working the tables - they help teach you how to play! They wanted you to learn and win! Crazy! Unfortunately, I still wouldn't really be able to teach you how to play craps if you asked, but I was starting to get the hang of it. A little.

It was so fun to see all of the swim parents, family members, and community getting together to support aquatics in our town. It was a pretty good turnout and it was so much fun! I don't think I expected it to be as fun as it was.
|I caught my cowboy mid-sentence. What a cutie :)|
Jan and Dusty even got in on the action. Jan was pretty good - I think she taught those dealers a thing or two about paying attention while playing :).
At the end of the night they had everyone trade in their chips for raffle tickets and then they pulled the raffle tickets for each gift to see who won. I never win anything so I wasn't expecting much...but I won me some Sugarland tickets for this weekend!!!!! I am so pumped!
It was such a fun night and such a great way for everyone to show their support for the Triangle Aquatic Center.
