October 2020 Cards Update

Friday 16 Oct, 2020

Hello to all members,

Coming back into Level One gave us the chance to restart our Euchre Club nights, without restricted numbers in our main club. We had six long weeks not playing. Our first night back we had only 27 members, but those who were playing were happy to be back. Well done to the winners on that night, photo shown, being paid out by our treasurer, Anne Hepburn.

We decided to have a Special Pairs night on 1st October due to it being our last night playing in the Main Bar as we now move into our new Club. We had a great turnout with 48 players (12 tables).

Thanks to all members that came to play for our final night. As always it was a fun, social night, playing with the same partner. There is always lots of laughs amongst the tables.

We also provided tea and coffee and biscuits at half time, which members appreciated. The winners on the night after 12 games were Michael and Sherrle Gray on 20 pts and equal 2nd on 18 pts were Alan Shears/ John Churchil and Ricky Winter/Gina Howden-Winter. Well done. Very close scores, a great night enjoyed by all!

From now we will be in our new Club.
