Duplicate Bridge

This group is associated with the ACBL (American Contact Bridge League). In Duplicate Bridge, the players compete against each other for each hand played. Each player’s scores are then compared to the other players’ scores. At the end of each card day, everyone has a rank of their score, which then earns master points accumulated at the end of the year.  Skilled players welcome to join.

Euchre

Euchre is a popular card game played with trump suits using a right & left bower. This group plays for fun and they welcome new players.

Farkle

The object is to score points by rolling combinations of dice, until one-player scores over the “game” score. Players try to make 10,000 points to win the game.  When a player fails to make points following any roll of the dice, the rest of the players yell “Farkle” and the player loses points accumulated during his/her turn. Join in on the fun!

If you enjoy singing and can carry a tune, join us as we sing melodies through the eras from the 30’s to the 60’s.  On occasion, we do take our voices out into the community!

Join us for the old favorite dances along with some new ones to try out.  Line dancing is good for improving balance and stamina, as well as relieving stress.

Pinochle

The object of pinochle is to beat the bid winner by taking as many tricks as possible in each hand.  The team that scores 1,000 points first wins the game.  Pinochle is played with four players (two teams of two).  The entire deck of cards is dealt, and play rotates clockwise.  Skilled players are welcome to join.  Pinochle classes are available at the Center.
