Second Thursday of the Month Euchre

  • Jul 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note the new location!

This is our regularly scheduled social euchre night. We usually start play around 7:00 pm and wrap up at 9:45 pm. We are holding this one at Rosemary's House (see above for information). For those new or haven't been in awhile, here is some basic information about our meetup:

1. If you are new to the game and don't know the rules, please do not sign-up on the website. Email me 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.

2. We have a number of casual games going on all night. We also play stick the dealer (ask if you don't know this variation).

3. This will be at Rosemary's house and 28 people can attend (we will open it up to 32 people).  If your name starts with A-J, then you are up for food.  If you can bring table and chairs, we would appreciate it.

4. Euchre is a 4 person game--yes, I know there are 3 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. If this month is like the previous months, we will have a wait list. Please be considerate and make your final decision as soon as possible. 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. This allows me some time to try and fill out the tables. Of course, I understand that you may get sick on the day. We are happy to have you stay home if you get sick. Otherwise, come play. A good evening of food, drink, cards, and friendship may be all that you need to be more productive the next day. Thanks!!

5. 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.

6.  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.

    Unfortunately Gabi has been sick all morning. Better if she stays home just in case.

    July 11, 2013

    • Gary W.

      Tell Gabi to have a cocktail... that always cures what ails me. :)

      July 11, 2013

    • Gary W.

    Ok everyone, we are holding at 28 players. Please note that any cancellation now will put us at an odd number (we know "stuff" happens but let's try to be conscious of our RSVPs). Let's thank Rosemary for hosting this month .. but note that she lives south of the beltway so please plan your route and travel time accordingly. Looking forward to seeing everyone and getting my game on tonight. :)

    Just found our 28th player for tomorrow night. We are good to go with 7 tables of euchre-playing fun!

    July 10, 2013

  • Rosemary

    Hey everyone - We're now at 27 players for Euchre Night (24 meet-up members and 3 guests). Having 28 people would be perfect. I'll re-open the RSVPs for one more slot.

    @ Kathleen R - a late arrival would be ok!

    Last call to update your RSVPs for euchre night on Thursday! It really helps with planning and playing if folks are accurate with their RSVP.

    July 9, 2013

  • Mary Lou R.

    No problem bringing my table and chairs.

    Even though it's not my turn to bring something I didn't last time so I will bring something this time :-)

    July 8, 2013

  • Kathleen

    I wouldn't be able to get there until 7:45 or after, so I'd like someone else to have my spot. Enjoy!

    July 8, 2013

    • Gary W.

      Please do consider signing back up as it looks like we will have an open spot or two.

      July 8, 2013

  • Gary W.

    Sheryl is correct, K-Z brought food last month, so this month is A - J. Please note the correction in the meetup.

    July 8, 2013

  • Gary W.

    Thanks Rosemary, I'll bring the table and chairs and of course my bar. Don't forget if your first name starts with K through Z you're up for bringing food. See everyone on Thursday.

    July 8, 2013

    • Sheryl E.

      K-Z's brought last month.

      July 8, 2013

  • Dave M.

    Sorry signed up for classes on tues and thurs nights thru August

    July 8, 2013

  • Rosemary

    Hey everyone - We're getting close to the next euchre night. For those that are on the RSVP list as a YES, please honor your RSVP. If you can't make it on Thursday, PLEASE update your RSVP as soon as you can since we have a couple people on the waiting list. If you're on the waiting list please watch your email so that if you get added to the YES category you know to come.

    I'll need Gary and Mary Lou to bring tables and chairs. Along with those, we can accommodate the group at my place.

    Re: parking -- most folks will be parking on the street. There's room for 4 cars in my driveway, if the first two don't mind being blocked in. My neighbors have kindly offered driveways that we can use on either side of my house (3008 and 3114 Cunningham). I'm hoping the weather is good so that we can use the deck too, but we do have space to fit everyone inside if we need to.

    See you on Thursday!

  • Gary W.

    Thanks to Rosemary for hosting this month. I'll be bringing my table and chairs and bar ... please let us know what else you will need so I can help coordinate. Also, for those that may need a ride there I can offer my Jeep as additional transport (pick people up at metro or whatever).

    It's our anniversary. Have fun!
