Mahjongg Club sponsors fall tournament

Janelle Authur

The SaddleBrooke Ranch Mahjongg Club will sponsor its third mahjongg tournament for residents on Thursday, Nov. 14.

The SaddleBrooke Ranch Fall 2019 Mahjongg Tournament will follow the same format as the previous two, with three one-hour rounds of play, a break for lunch, and then two more one-hour rounds of play. Each round will consist of four games. Play will begin at 10 a.m., with registration and rules review taking place beforehand. Barbara Simon will serve as tournament monitor. Most importantly, there will be prizes for the highest scores!

A pre-registration practice session will be offered on Thursday, Oct. 24, so interested players can learn and play with tournament rules and scoring. A second session on Thursday, Nov. 7, will take place for registered participants only and focus on faster play. Both sessions will be at 1 p.m. at the La Hacienda Club.

Registration forms will be available in the weekly Ranch Reminder and at the Thursday afternoon regularly scheduled mahjongg play beginning Sept. 30. Registration is limited to 40 players and will close on Thursday, Oct. 31. The registration fee is $35 and includes lunch, snacks, and prizes.

Please watch for the registration form in the Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 weekly Ranch Reminder and at Thursday’s afternoon play. In the meantime, mark your calendars and save the dates!

Your MJ tournament team is Janelle Authur, Bonnie Goldman, Gale Hall, and Gail Latimer.
