Our group started back in 2001 at Castro's Lounge in beaches. We are a friendly bunch of euchre players and we play progressive euchre. Many members don't RSVP on Meetup.com but we usually end up with 12 to 20 people. Membership fee is $12 per year from January till December to cover Meetup.com fees and supplies but free to try. This group is not for profit.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT; when we play at a member's house BYO food and drinks. When we play at a restaurant/bar type business THERE IS A MINIMUM SPEND OF $10. You must support their business so they will be happy to see us and we will have a place to play. And also please tip your server! <br>
Start time 7pm and we usually finish no later than 10:30pm. Although the $10 ante is optional, our members prefer everyone put it the ante. Plus if you don't pay you can't win the prizes. All monies are paid out. <br>
