We will need a minimum number of tables to keep this game going, so please consider coming out!




Our Tuesday evening supervised play is ongoing at Soul Sanctuary. This is a wonderful opportunity for beginning players to play for a couple of hours with supervision by more advanced players. Entry is $5, and includes a lesson, handouts, and a game. Frequently the hands will be related to the lesson so that you will have an opportunity to practice what has been presented. It’s a relaxed atmosphere where you can ask questions, have fun, and improve your play. There is no requirement to attend every Tuesday - just come whenever you can. You are welcome to come with or without a partner.

In order that we can have a 7 pm start, please arrive by 6:45 so that folks can sign in and get a name tag. 

If you know you are coming, please respond at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that we can set up the appropriate number of tables and be sure to have sufficient volunteers available.


Looking forward to seeing you on the 5th!
