Loft Social – 3rd Thursdays
Get to know your neighbors over appetizers, wine & beer! The Loft Social takes place every 3rd Thursday in the Five Oaks Clubhouse, from 5-8pm. The Clubhouse provides beer, wine, soda, and light snacks – neighbors often bring snacks and desserts to share as well. Family-friendly, movies provided for kids. No RSVP needed for members & their guests, just show up!
Poker – Every Tuesday
Every Tuesday night, based on seat availability. For members and their guests. If you are interested in joining, please contact Kevin Staring at (919) 360-9034 to confirm your spots.
Bunco – Last Monday of Every Month
Meeting will be once a month in the main room of the Clubhouse ~ usually it will be the *last* Monday of every month (starting June 25th, 7pm to 9:30pm). However because of a calendar conflict, we will not be able to play the last Monday in May, so May’s game (which will be our first come back game) is scheduled for Monday, May 14th.
For the May 14th Game:

Start an Event
Five Oaks encourages members to bring forward ideas for events, activities and other functions that would benefit the community as a whole.
If a member is willing to conceptualize, plan, host and coordinate the clean-up effort for an event that would be open to all members for free, Five Oaks will often waive rental fees and may even offer a small budget to help bolster the event. Bring us your ideas!
