Mah Jong

Mahjong Interest Group

Not too late to join!

Mahjong is a tile-based game that was developed in China during the Qing dynasty and has spread throughout the world since the early 20th century. We have organized an interest group of existing players. Also we are willing to teach new players. If you are new to the game, we recommend that you commit to attending for 4 weeks in a row. This will really assist you in playing the game.

We are planning to play at members’ homes from 1-4pm. First dates are November 5,12,19 and 26.

Outdoor Activities The group arranges outdoor activities such as: hiking, canoeing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. The coordinator will e-mail group members to announce the date and time of each activity.
Singles Group

A member-run interest group offering a non-threatening atmosphere where single persons can enjoy social activities and make new friends. It will be open to all members:single, divorced, widowed, or separated.

The activities will be carried out on a volunteer basis and will depend on the season and your suggestions. There may be a cost involved depending on the activities chosen.

A few suggestions include: bowling, walking/hiking, lunches, shows (ie. MAT theater), picnics, pot luck dinners, community events, card and board games.

Regardless of the activity, the emphasis is on having fun with friends and making new friends.

We aim to have some kind of Get-Together on Fridays every 2 weeks. This is evolving…who knows what we might get up to!
