November 30, 2020 update - Cancelled until further notice due to Covid restrictions.
Whist is a very popular afternoon drop in game open to all seniors and all are welcome to come and join. Many of the regular members take part in this social afternoon. Whist is also played year round. The costs here are only for the coffee and prizes.
"Whist" is a very old English game. It started in the 15th Century. By the late 19th Century it had become the number one fashionable game of middle and high society throughout the Western world. It is considered a stepping stone to Bridge.
Whist is a game of mental engagement, strategic thinking and social interactions. Since there are several versions of whist our club has chosen to play the “Basic Partnership” game with four players, two against two as partners.
It is a drop in game for players holding a current FLC Seniors Club Membership.
Whist players currently holding a current FLC Seniors membership are invited to play Friday afternoons except on statutory holidays. If there are Whist players out there that have played Whist in the past but are afraid to give it a try again because it has been a long time since you have played, please do not hesitate to come and join us. We have people who are willing help you get through those first few games to get yourself back in Whist trim,
Please note that we do not teach Whist.
