Many folks have expressed interest in playing cards, and Rae has kindly offered to host a meetup (euchre anyone?). Thanks, Rae!! If there is enough interest, we can make it a recurring monthly event, with members taking turns hosting.


We would like to shoot for 4-5 tables of four players each with a maximum of 20 attendees. We will need help with two additional sets of tables & chairs.


Bring the beverage of your choice and an appetizer/dish to share.


Rae's address and phone number will be emailed to confirmed attendees a day or two prior to the event.


Please let me or Rae know if you have any questions.  Hope to see you there!!

    Sorry I had to cancel. My area was an ice rink. Hopefully catch the next one. :-)

    Hello everybody. Thank you so much for making last night a success. I heard lots of talking and lots of laughs. I think the only person who didn't move from the table they started at was Don. Congratulations Don for being the euchre champ last night. If we can get another game scheduled for next month that would be great. Last night's meetup was opened to 20 people in the event to have at least 4 tables and that happened. So who wants to host the next one and schedule the next one?

    Any plans on doing this again soon? I, seriously loved meeting everyone and totally enjoyed playing playing cards!! I would be willing to host a night but my space is more limiting; I could probably squeeze in four tables here. Thanks so much Rae for having us!!!

    I talked to Donna C and we are still on for tonight. Looks like the weather may cooperate. And hopefully the ice on the roads will clear up enough for safe driving. I look forward to seeing everyone tonight.

      I think they are ok to travel on better than last night that is for sure.

      the roads during the day today were pretty good. I drove up and down 14 with now problems. 14 was very clear Linda. If you can get out of town I think you will be OK.

    Good morning the main roads are getting better. I hope people update their status if they are unable to come. I am on the waiting list. Have a great night if I don't make it.

    January 11, 2014

  • Rae

    Address has been sent, Donna.
    I have been out driving this morning and the roads are really icy yet. What is everybody's thoughts on re-scheduling tonight for another week?

    January 11, 2014

  • Donna C

    Got your address. Thsnkd

    January 11, 2014

  • Donna C

    I need your address too. Thanks

  • Donna C

    Hi Rae. I play euchre every other Monday. I am happy to teach attendees how to play. Maybe those who know how to play can do rotations and another table of 4 can play cards with Cheri and Jason.

    January 11, 2014

  • Linda Z.

    Is this strictly for euchre or is spades, hearts, poker or rummy an option?

    January 9, 2014

    • Rae

      We can discuss more on Saturday with the group. It was my thought to play stricly euchre with folks moving between tables to get an opportunity to meet and converse with most everybody.

      Sounds good. :-)

    Yes, I made it off the waitlist - could you please send directions. Thank you & I look forward to meeting you and the group.

    January 10, 2014

    Is there anyone that needs directions for tomorrow?

    January 10, 2014

  • Sue

    Oops. I didn't reslize I made it off the wsitlidt and made other plans.

    January 10, 2014

    January 8, 2014

    • Willie W.

      I play euchre and could help teach those who don't know how. I sometimes attend the euchre Meet Up on Monday nights. See ya'll Sat night.

      January 9, 2014

    • Rae

      Mark, Cheri has offered to bring table and chairs, so I should be good. Thank you for offering.

      January 9, 2014

  • Val

    I am so excited to attend this event (nice and close to my house). I have a table and chairs if we need it. I also have many decks of cards. Let me know if you want any of these. See you Sat.

    January 9, 2014

    • Rae

      Decks of cards would be great....thank you. I realized I only have 2 decks myself.

    January 8, 2014

  • Paul W.

    I am on the waiting list but if I do get bumped up, I do know how to play. Also have card table and chairs if I would get to come .

    January 8, 2014

  • Linda

    I know how to play

    January 8, 2014

  • Penny

    I know how to play.

    January 8, 2014

  • Rae

    Email has been sent out with address and phone number to folks attending.

    January 8, 2014

    • Cheri

      I think this means that after you exit to the right off of 51, it curves around and you turn left onto cottage grove road itself

      January 8, 2014

    • Rae

      If you are headed north on Hwy 51 prior to exiting onto the Cottage Grove Road off-ramp, you will turn left onto Cottage Grove Road at the stop lights.

  • Laura

    Hi everyone, PLEASE remember to keep your RSVP up-to-date as we are currently running a wait list for the event with nine members waiting. If your plans do change, please remember to change your RSVP as soon as you can. Thanks!!

    January 8, 2014

  • Rae

    For anyone who maybe interested in researching how to play euchre prior to Saturday, here is a website that explains the game. What it doesn't cover in great detail is the scoring, but we can go over that on Saturday.

    Rae,
    I don't know how to play Euchre - am interested in learning or playing a different game. Did you send out your address yet? or did I miss it?

    Julia P

    January 8, 2014

    • Rae

      Hi Julie, No I haven't sent out my address yet. I need to get a hold of Laura in order to figure out how to send out the email to those folks that have rsvp'd. I will get this done hopefully before end of day today.

      January 8, 2014

    • Rae

      Not a problem that you don't know how to play euchre. Hopefully, there will be a number of folks who know how to play that can assist with teaching. :) It's a fun game and the luck is in the cards that you are dealt.

      January 8, 2014

  • Cindy R

    I am so sad I had to change my RSVP to a No. I have a going away party to attend that night for one of my daughter's best friends who is leaving for Copenhagen in a couple of weeks to study abroad for 6 months.

    January 1, 2014

    • Linda

      You will be missed, Cindy!

      January 1, 2014

    • Rae

      Maybe next time Cindy. I hope that we can keep this going on a monthly basis.

      January 2, 2014

  • Linda Z.

    Where in Madison is this going to be? I need an address for my GPS since I live in Evansville. Thanks

    January 1, 2014

    • Rae

      Once we get closer to the date, I will send out my address and phone number for folks.

      January 2, 2014

  • Linda Z.

    I'm excited I made it off the wait list. Let's hope the snow holds off. Would veggie platter be fine>

    January 1, 2014

  • Cheri

    We don't know how to play euchre, and would be happy to be taught, OR Jason and I will bring the cards, shuffler, and score sheet for a version of canasta called hand and foot. This is a partner game and we'll be happy to teach two people how to play if no one knows how. Let me know if you'd like us to bring table and chairs.

    December 17, 2013

    • Linda Z.

      I've been told if you know how to play dirty clubs you can learn euchre easily. They are similar.

      January 1, 2014

  • Cheri

    Yes, Rae, I sure can! Looking forward to the evening.

    January 1, 2014

  • Rae

    I checked my card table supply and if all 20 folks show-up, I will need one more card table with 4 chairs. Cheri, are you still able to bring a table/chairs?

    January 1, 2014

  • Rae

    There is currently a wait-list, so if folks don't plan on attending, please change your rsvp for those who are waiting. Thank you.

    December 27, 2013

  • Rae

    As Laura stated, as we get closer and I see how many people are attending, I wll send out my address and phone number.

    December 18, 2013

  • Rae

    Hi Cheir, I would like to try euchre for ths first night of getting together. If you can help out with table and chairs that would be great. And yes, we can teach anyone who doesn't know how to play euchre. This is going to be so much fun. I am really looking forward to the night.
