(Learn to) Play Canasta

Canasta is a fun and interesting card game, challenging and strategic, not nearly as difficult as Bridge but equally entertaining. 

We play according to the classic rules which you can find here: http://www.pagat.com/rummy/canasta.html

If you've never played before, arrive at 13.00 and I will teach you. We'll start playing for real at 14.00.

Note that the game can be played by either 4 or 6 people so we will have to have 4, 6, 8 or 12 participants to play. This makes it extra important that you keep your RSVP up to date and only sign up if you are committed to participating.

Bring a snack to share. I will provide coffee, tea, popcorn and juice.

Address, etc. will be e-mailed to all Yes RSVPers on Sep 6.

      Nope. When you get the e-mail you have to go to the site and change your RSVP to Yes. Someone else beat you to it this time.

      Hi Andreas. There is a waiting list for the event right now so you would only be able to join if some spots open up. I would suggest you put yourself on the waiting list. If a spot opens up, a mail to will be sent to everyone on the waiting list.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
