Belote

Français

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.

Next session is on 3 November and thereafter on 1 December, ?? January, ?? February..

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.

The first session was on Friday 1 September, when we had 9 (two tables plus an “expert” member).

At the second, we were 13 (three tables and an “expert”)

 

 

Where

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

We shall play at La Maison du Quartier des Fourches, where we played in February.

BUT, UPSTAIRS; ENTER THE BUILDING FROM THE OTHER SIDE FROM THAT SHOWN IN THE PHOTO !

 

 

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.
