What we're about
Canasta, Movies and Walks
We're a group of good humored women 40's to 70's+, who like to play Canasta, see a movie or take a short urban walk in the Portland Metro area.
We are all moderately competitive Canasta players who enjoy the conversation as much as the game. The card games will be held in venues bordering the downtown Portland area where there is either a parking lot or plenty of on street parking. Areas: NW, Hollywood, Belmont, Woodstock, and possibly north of downtown in the St Johns downtown area...
Canasta Table Rules for Canasta Movies and Walks may vary slightly or greatly depending on each player's experience. If you're a hard core rules follower, this may not be a good match...
Please let me know if you have any questions.

There are no joining fees for this private group.
Meetup offers a reduced fee for groups with 50 or fewer members--if after a few months it looks like this group isn't a great fit, for whatever reason, please make space for someone on the waiting list (should a waiting list develop).
