Do you like to play the game 500? Have you never played the game, but would like to learn?
The game of 500 is a partner, trick-taking game for 4 players. Teams simply bid their hands in hopes of taking at least that number of tricks for a given round. This is a fairly fast and relatively easy game once all players get used to bidding, playing & scoring.
This new club will be held on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month at 10:00 am.
Would you like to have your name in lights? Would you like to be on stage? Then join the Beckett Serenaders. We meet once a week with the goal of singing at retirement & nursing homes in the Brantford area.
Our group practices at the Beckett Centre on Wednesday afternoons at 2:30 pm. We are taking the summer off, but we resume our practices on Wednesday, Sept 5, 2012. Presently, we sing a lot of oldies, rhythm & blues, and all time favourites - Do you have any ideas or suggestions on how we could improve our set list?
For more information, please stop & ask at the Beckett Centre front desk, or call the Centre at (519) 756-3261.
