We are pleased to announce the restart of Whist as of December 3.
As of March 1, 2022, the Alberta Government launched Step 2 of its re-opening plan. Proof of vaccination is no longer required and indoor masking is now on a voluntary basis.
Many of the regular members take part in this social afternoon. Whist is also played year-round. The costs here are only for the 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 steppingstone 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. You must know how to play.
