CARDS SECTION

Our 2018 AGM was held on 27 November and a Committee elected for 2019.

Already there is quite a busy calendar for the New Year, with Clubs NZ tournaments and various cash and annual memorial tournaments. We try to hold our own inhouse tournaments on either Tuesday evening or Sunday morning.

 

On 25th November, we ran the annual Ham 'n Lamb Euchre tournament which atrracted 44 entries from clubs as far away as Hamilton and Kamo, as well as our local clubs. It was a good day as usual, with five happy players going home with bags of Christmas goodies.

 

Our last Inter-Club game was played at Mangere Cosmopolitan Club on 18 November, with players dressing up in all manner of costumes. A sumptuous lunch was provided by Hannah's Kitchen at $12 per head, BUT it was refunded, Mangere annoucing they had fund raised to cover it!

 

Weymouth won the November Team trophy on that day with the highest team score.  Waiuku Cosmopolitan Club took out the Singles and Runner-up trophies for the year, with Papakura Club third and Weymouth CS&SC (John Preston) coming fourth. The Team trophy for the year was won by Waikato Combined, with Mangere A Runner-up.

 

Weymouth will be hosting the Inter-Club AGM on Sunday 13 January 2019 in the top lounge of the Club at 11:00am.

 

Anyone wishing to learn to play (or brush-up on) Euchre, Cribbage or 500, the Cards Section will reconvene on Tuesday 15 January at 7:00pm.
