Oboist Jenn Wins An Epic Game of Monopoly

DCDD's 2014 fall season began mid-August, starting with DC Swing's first rehearsal on 13 August and the Capital Pride Symphonic Band's first rehearsal on 18 August.

To herald the end of summer break, members played games and visited with friends one afternoon the intervening weekend.  The range of games was excellent, from exciting new cooperative games like Forbidden Desert to old school competitive favorites like Monopoly -- as were the snacks provided by the Membership Committee.  Game day was a great kick-off to a great year.
