The return of Saturday Games – ‘500’ was welcomed by previous group members and they welcomed the new players who attended. Cards are held in the U3a Room on the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month, commencing at 1.30pm. If you have an interest in playing or learning the card game 500, want to have lots of laughter, lollies and afternoon tea come along and join us, you will be most welcome.
The first Monday of the month at 1:30. We had such a great time with one of our new games, so much laughter we all left feeling on top of the world.
After a successful trial the last 6 months of 2019, Saturday Cards, playing the game 500, will be held on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, commencing at 1.30pm to 3.30pm. The game is open to beginners as well as regular players of the game. Afternoon tea will be available (as well as lollies to keep up the energy levels), together with lots of laughs, lots of mumbling when things don’t go as they should. Come and join us for a pleasant afternoon with likeminded players.
Convenor: Heather Wallace
The card game of 500 is a simple social game to play with groups of 4 players or more.
Playing cards is a fun way of enjoying other's company without physical exertion. Our U3A group of card players has many laughs and fun at our sessions with easy to understand rules.
Players do not have to have had previous experience as you will be taught how to play by others present.
We are a friendly and welcoming group where the focus is on having fun in a mildly competi-tive environment. There is no gambling or money involved.
The game is flexible and can be configured to accommodate any number of participants. This allows for flexibility if you cannot come along on a regular basis.
