Second Thursday of the Month Euchre

  • May 8, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


This is our regularly scheduled social euchre night.  We usually start play around 7:00 pm and wrap up at 9:45 pm.  For those new or haven't been in awhile, here is some basic information about our meetup:

This month we are at Teaism in Old Town.

• No tables needed, No food needed, No $1 needed.

• Just plan on getting some food or drinks while you are there please (support the business as it were).

• If you can park on the street that is preferred as it is free after 7pm.  There are many places to park.  Please note that even though there is a parking garage next door there will be a charge though you get 90 minutes free with Teaism validation.  Plus they close EXACTLY at 10 pm so you'll have to stop playing at 9:40.

1. New To The Game of Euchre : If you are new to the game and don't know the rules, please do not sign-up on the website.  Email me (Gary) to let me know that you want to learn to play.  We count on having 4 people who can play the game at a table.  We absolutely love teaching the game, but we will go through the game, have you watch, and then coach you through.  This means that I can't be at another table so we have to plan accordingly.

2. New To The Group : If you have never been, we are a friendly group and welcome everyone to come.  Very few people come with a friend or spouse.  What this means is that it will not be awkward to arrive alone.  It is better than a happy hour because it is easy to make conversation about cards.  You don't have to even ask the dreaded "what do you do?" question.  If you come three times, you are a regular.  Also, house rules are that we play stick the dealer (ask if you don't know this variation).

3. Correct Table Count : Euchre is a 4 person game--yes, I know there are 3 and 6 person variations, but most people prefer the 4 person game.  What this means is that if you sign-up, we are counting on you to be there. The deadline for RSVP is 2 days prior to the meet-up.  Please update by that time, especially if you are going to cancel your RSVP.  If you get 3 "no shows" and you'll only be able to sign up via an organizer.

4. The Waiting List : If this month is like the previous months, we will have a waiting list.  Please be considerate and honor your RSVP.  Of course, if you are sick and on death's door we don't want you to come out and get the rest of us sick; however, if not please do come play.  A good evening of food, drink, cards, and friendship may be all that you need to be more productive the next day.  If you are on the waiting list I am expecting you to either remove yourself if you don't want to be considered for an open slot, or check the site (or email) so you know you've been promoted to an RSVP of YES when a slot opens up.

5.  Costs : There are some costs associated with meetup -- I have to pay Meetup every 6 months for listing on their website.  They don't work off of advertising fees.  We pass the bowl around and ask people to throw a $1 in each time they come.

    Gary, I agree, Teaism is a fine alternative when no home is available. Can you "sign me in" for the July session? (Is that legal?) I'll be away all of June… missing the June night and coming back so late I might not get signed up in time for July.

    I'm sorry to cancel my RSVP, but I will be at work late trying to finish a brief so I can go home and see my mom for Mother's Day!

    It will either be at Bob and James' or Teaism. If Bob and James can host they will take preference. Stand by :)
