Come along on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month to spend a convivial couple of hours playing the game of 500. A good way to sharpen the brain power in an enjoyable way.
There's always lots of laughter in the room on the first Monday afternoon when a friendly group meet to play games!
Caught during a Saturday Games '500' Session! Six people in two groups of three players were caught in action on Saturday 19 October following the instructions for playing in '3's format! Convenor Heather Wallace has prepared a handout on ways of playing for different sized groups, so there is always the chance to play. A pleasant way to spend a Saturday afternoon for card lovers keen to engage those brain cells! People are welcome to join in as we play in different formats to learn team configuration and scoring.
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.
This activity is open to members keen to learn and refresh their skills when playing this card game. This activity takes place in the U3A Rooms at the Senior Citizens building on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. Come along and enjoy the fun. You will be most welcome.
Our Games program has expanded to include Saturday sessions!
The first activity last Saturday was made up of participants ranging from beginners to experienced players of the Card Game 500. A number of players have played 500 previously (many years ago???) and with practice will become more proficient at the game. This activity is held the 1st and 3rd Saturday in the month, in the U3a room at the Seniors Citizens commencing at 1.30pm to 3.30pm (or until the games are finished). If members are interested in participating and having fun on a Saturday afternoon contact Heather Wallace on 0418 353 244.
Join us at Games on Monday May 6th at 1:30 pm for a friendly afternoon.
As two times have been advertised for Games, the official time will now be 1.30 pm. I hope this will solve the confusion. Unfortunately I won’t be at the April games, hope to make it in May.
We enjoyed Scrabble,Travelling Australia (lots of reminiscing when landing on places we’ve been) & Trivial Pursuit. Great fun.
A Games Group ran for many years to mid 2016.

In Semester 2, 2019 a fornightly Saturday afternoon Games group was introduced by new convenor Heather Wallace, with a focus on the card game '500'.
An enjoyable way to spend leisure time with other members!
