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
Games will re-commence on Monday 3 February at 1:30 pm - with our Trivia Brain in working order!!

There's always lots of laughter in the room on the first Monday afternoon when a friendly group meet to play games!
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.
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.
