Who should attend?

Anyone who enjoys the social activity of meeting like-minded people, having fun and giving their mind a workout. Open to all ages – Kids to Seniors and everyone in between. This will be a kid friendly event. (Kids to be supervised by their parents/guardians).

Don’t worry if you don’t know how to play the game, there will be someone happy to take you through the rules and teach most of the games.

Come with family and friends or come alone and make new friends. There is always a game starting up looking for players and if not just wait a few minutes. Come and help me with the jigsaw while you are waiting.
