Acoustic Music Group 

Contact Us

We are always looking for those who wish to experience the joy of playing acoustic instruments in a respectful group setting. Feeling reluctant about playing with a group? Fear not because our members quickly learn that we are a friendly, non-threatening group of musicians with widely varying skill levels.

Backgammon   Contact Us   

Revive the fun and frustration of BACKGAMMON at PGICA every Monday afternoon. We are a congenial and helpful group and even allow groans for a bad roll. We meet every Monday from 2 to 4 in Room Two. Bring your board if you have one. Open to members of the PGICA. If interested, contact John Smidt at or call 781-248-4000.

BUNCO BUDDIES is the newest GROUP at PGICA – sprung from a year and a half of games hosted by the Newcomers Club.
If you can roll 3 dice, you can play Bunco* - no skill involved, purely a game of chance. Beginners welcome - you’ll be an expert after one round.

Great for meeting others because you change teammates every round. Come alone, with a friend, even a spouse. We play the 1st Tuesday of each month, starting at 6:30, ending by 9:00 (including cleanup). If possible, please register (and cancel if you can’t make it) so we have the right number of tables/supplies set up and can start on time. Click Bunco Buddies Home Page
 to get details/register.

*the only physical requirement is you do get up and change tables with each hand -- unless you WIN!
