Usher in the New Year Playing Euchre with Friends

  • Dec 31, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

$6.00 per person to play plus a quarter every time you get euchred. (Please bring cash.) Cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners and maybe others (Dollar amount will depend on the number of participants). The person with the most loners gets the quarter pot. Please bring a covered dish or an appetizer to share. Soft drinks and paper products will be provided. Please bring your adult drink of choice. Social time is at 6:45-7:00. The tournament starts promptly at 8:00. See you there!!

The idea here is that each player is partnered with every other player over the course of the night, or as time allows. (We'll shoot for 10 rounds, but this will depend on the number of people playing.) Here's the setup- There are one or more tables playing the game at the same time, depending on the number of people involved in the tourney. You do not play a game to 10 points but until everybody at the table deals two times. Each person has a score card and writes his/her total points from that table, then switch partners for a new round. At the end of the night, everybody adds up the number of points they scored throughout the night, and the SINGLE PERSON with the most points wins 1st prize, the next highest number of points wins 2nd prize, the next highest wins 3rd, so on and so on.

This event is starting a bit later than we would typically start because we are hoping to complete our games a bit closer to midnight so that we can usher in the new year together.

    Since we have 39 signed up, I raised the number of possible people to 44. Also, if some of you notice that you are bringing extra people and did not sign up as such, I probably added to the folks you were bringing. Also, also, does anybody have any idea what they are going to cook or bring? I am looking for a theme to latch onto
