This 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 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 3 to 5 pm., but we have become accustomed to meeting at 2.35, courtesy of the singing group, who stop singing around 2.35 to start their tea break.
Maraitaine provide a tea and coffee making facility for a small donation into the honesty box for residents’ amenities (U3A recommend 50p).
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
