Quiet Please!

Players should not speak so often or so loudly.

We have done much to curb noise from players, so the only way to solve the problem is with the cooperation of our players. Please speak as little, and as softly, as possible. Without voluntary compliance we may have to consider alternative corrective measures.

A quiet atmosphere will make for more enjoyable games for everyone.

ICE Machine

Our ice machine is a delicate instrument for our pleasure. However we need to treat it properly. Please do not ever pour drinks, coffee or anything other than water and ice down the drain there! A new machine will cost us all $4000.


We need YOU as a host at your favorite game.  All games are in need of hosts, and the respective directors would appreciate having you on the host schedule.  Check with the directors of the games in which you are interested in hosting, and let them know you want to volunteer.  (Game hosts need to arrive a little earlier and be prepared to play with a person they have not met or played with before. Hosts are allowed a free play, and in the event a host is not needed that day the free game may be applied later.)
