Lake Forest Park Pinochle Night

  • to
  • Third Place Books

    17171 Bothell Way NE, #A101, Lake Forest Park, WA (map)

  • Since several people have mentioned the common area at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park lets give it a go.  I haven't been there myself but I have included the address in the meetup information.  If you get there a bit early please grab a table for us and post to this thread where you have landed so we can find you.  Formally, we'll go from 6-8pm but if others want to play later I encourage it.  Since it's a bit up North for me I'll have to leave around 7:30-7:45ish.

    We’re still a small fledgling group so we’ll be flexible to the style of game we play, so everyone gets to play, and beginners are always welcome.  From a game standpoint I'll bring several decks of cards and a cheat sheet on melding points and a sheet that describes the 3 handed traditional game with notes on other forms of play (4 handed, auction, and partner versions).  If you play a version of the game outside of what's listed above be ready to teach it to your fellow Pinochle lovers!

    Logistically, the group is open to all regardless of ability to support paying the meetup.com cost.  That said, it’s about $180 a year to have the meetup group run through the site and I bear the responsibility of making that payment.  If it’s within your financial ability to help I’d ask that you donate $1 to that cause when attending a Meetup.  I'll have a little can for that at the table.

    Last but not least our group is friendly and inclusive.  Everyone is welcome to come and play regardless of age, sex, race, physical handicap, gender identification, sexuality, or religion.  Our group is a safe place that respects everyone's uniqueness.  We are all united through the love of friendship, great memories, and fun times that can be forged by the cards in a deck and the people who hold them.

    Will do my best to get there as close to 6 as possible, but difficult, as I work downtown until 5.

      Sounds good Dee! drive safe. I'll probably get there about the same time as you as I'll be leaving the city at that time as well.

    I will probably be there first so I will grab a table in the common area. There are lots of tables and if you want to buy dinner, lots of types of food available. I have not been able to make it to downtown for the other meetups so am looking forward to meeting with everyone!

      That would be awesome Kathy. Thanks for grabbing the table. Since we haven't met yet is there something you could put on the table that would let people know where you landed? That would help us find the table if the space is big.
