Do you like euchre, beer, and neighborly bonding (or just one of those things)? Great – us too! And you won’t want to miss the Maple Bluff Annual Euchre Night! Festivities begin at 6:30 and will feature premium beers & wine, delicious pizza, and a few snacks and treats. Don’t play euchre? No problem at all, we’ll teach you! You will be randomly paired with partners – a fantastic way to meet new friends and neighbors! Registration will end at 7:15pm, followed by rules and tournament play at 7:30 pm. Villagers too chicken to play cards are encouraged to attend and volunteer as beer maidens. Winners in top 3 places receive a cash prize and neighborhood glory. Following the tournament, which will end at approximately 9:30 pm, we will commence with a dance party and firepit fun. Cost is $20/player and includes buy in, pizza and one premium beer or glass of wine. Add unlimited beer/wine for $10. Sign up ahead of time online or the night of the tournament (cash only!).
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors.
