This group is currently meeting each week, but members need to be conscious of the fact that we meet in the lounge at a Residential Homes, and must NOT attend if suffering from any symptoms that may be due to the Covid virus
The group is for those who wish to enjoy playing Euchre in an informal and not too serious way.
It is a group of mixed abilities, and we have some former beginners and some more experienced players. We generally arrange ourselves into tables as people arrive and don't operate a formal rotation system.
New members of the group need not to have played Euchre before, but experience has shown that it's essential for " third age " beginners to Euchre to be already proficient in at least one other trick taking game such as Whist, Knock out Whist, Solo or Bridge.
We meet in the lounge at La Nouvelle Maraitaine on Wednesday afternoons. The " official " times for the group are 3pm - 5pm, but a majority of members have become accustomed to starting soon after 2pm provided we do not disturb the singing group who sing in the other half of the lounge until around 2.40pm or so.
However parking at La Nouvelle Maraitaine is difficult until the singing group start to disperse. Some members park at the Douzine Room, but this is terre a L'amende. Nobody has had a problem yet, but it is at your own risk.
Members pay a small extra charge ( currently £1 per week) to cover rent, refreshments, playing cards etc.
The group has a WAITING LIST because of space constraints. To be placed on the waiting list email via the pigeon or call Bob on 254979.
