Belote

Come and join the new EuroMayenne group for a game of

BELOTE

After our introduction to the game in Laval in February 2017, many members expressed an interest in playing again, probably regularly.   There were others who wanted to play on that evening but couldn’t attend.

So we are starting the year with the hope that a group can be formed that will learn (or improve) how to play this typically French popular card game.

When

We plan to play on the first Friday afternoon of each month, with the first session on Friday 1 September, then 6 October, 3 November and 1 December.

Come along at 2.15 p.m., for play to start at 2:30. We’ll have a tea break after an hour, and finish about  4:30.

Depending on popular demand we can play more or less frequently than once a month.  We can see how the new group evolves.

 

Where

Initially in Laval every month, but depending on demand, maybe alternate months in Mayenne.

The first venue is the Maison de Quartier d’Hilard in Laval for September only. (Access is very easy from the Ring Road.)

SEPTEMBER ONLY – Hilard

Thereafter we shall play at La Maison du Quartier des Fourches, where we played in February. For a map and a photo of the entrance click here for the link to the Conversation Workshops in Laval.

 

Who

This group is aimed at both beginners and those who have played before . Each table (you play at tables of 4) will, we hope, have at least one player who knows what to do and there will be an “expert” who will supervise.

 

Cost

It will be completely free to EuroMayenne members but there will be the usual “honesty box” for small contributions towards the tea and biscuits.

 

Contact

If you would like to come along on 1 September, or have any questions, please let Liz Mallinson know by 20 August.

And if you are interested in playing but the day, time or venue are not convenient please let her know so that these can be fine-tuned to suit the majority.
