Annual Pinochle Tournament @ Coffee Culture on Sheridan!

This is a Members-Only Meetup

• Since we will be meeting in a public Restaurant we must be respectful of their other customers - please keep your voices low, etc.

• The purchase of a meal and a coffee/soda is required!

How the Tournament will go:

We will play four hands of 4 player Regular Single-Deck Pinochle (No pass, funky pass, blind kitty, etc.).  Once you've reached your 4th hand, tally up your score for that game and switch to another partner - also keep track of who you've played with during game play.  Carry a paper and pen with you for this purpose (please bring them with you).

There will be no 'throwing a hand  in unless it falls within the 9's rule (five 9's and no Aces, or 6 nines that you are dealt - see Donna for further clarification if you need it).

Remember, we are a friendly group and mistakes can happen during game play - please keep this in mind :)  We don't necessarily follow the 'card laid is a card played' rule unless a trick is already turned over - this is within reason - use your best judgement - changing to a point card because you didn't realize your partner trumped a trick for example, is NOT acceptable.  Again, use your best judgement.

Conversely, not telling an opponent something was trumped to try and set them up to Renig is not appropriate or good sportsmanship. 

Once you have played with every person present as a partner, you're done for the night - keep track of your score to see if you win the Highest, Second Highest or Third Highest Score prize!  Don't forget the lowest score Booby Prize!

    It would be better if naturally curly haired people were given preferential treatment. Dealing first or get to use the restroom first are just a couple of constructive ideas

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
