Our small group has lots of fun! You’re welcome to come and try. First Monday, 1.30 to 3.30 pm.
The 500 card group on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month is an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend a Saturday afternoon. The activity commences at 1.30pm and usually finishes around 3.45pm (depending of how long the games of cards take). There is laughter and the occasional ‘what did I do that for’. Players both new and those who used to play are becoming quite proficient in the game. Come along and be part of the fun. Contact Heather Wallace on 0418 353 244.
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.
