Games Afternoon's

Due to the success of the inaugural games afternoon on Thursday 17th October, Mary Donaldson is pleased to organise the next meeting on Thursday 31st October, 2pm to 4pm.

On Thursday we enjoyed a choice of games including Rummiub, Mexican Trains (12 dot dominoes), Upwords, Sequence and Cribbage. If you have a favourite game, please bring it with you on the 31st.

If you prefer to play cards, Patrick Marner, who already organises the evening Bonus Whist (2nd Wednesday in the month NB: except in November when it will take place on Wednesday 6th November at 8p.m) is prepared to organise an afternoon of cards if Members would be interested.

At present the preferred day is a Wednesday afternoon, (not the 2nd Wednesday) if you would like this opportunity, please either confirm by email or leave your contact details at the Bar. 

If you know of Members who may be interested but are not on our email data base, please encourage them to come along as well.

Let’s enjoy these Winter afternoons in great company together in the warmth of RAFA 381!!
