Welcome to St Austell and District Euchre League
Updated 18th June 2017
Would everyone note that the AGM will be held at St Blazey AFC on Thursday 13th July at 7-30 pm prompt.This year there will be a mini tournament of 5 games of 11 up after the meeting in memory of Pam Deakin who for many years played for St Austell Band Club.It will be £2-00 per player and there will be cash prizes.
Would all players please note that there is a change to rule 20 of our rules.It now reads as follows.
20-If a team member in a house is unable to play for any reason, any house member may take his/her place, provided they have not played for any other house in the League within the season.There must always be a majority of named team members, that is four or more,as registered with the league fixture secretary at the beginning of the season or added during the season.
To all team captains.To clear up any confusion on why we fill in and sign two result cards. It is because each team captain is responsable for the return of their own cards as per rule 7 of the St Austell Euchre League.The reson being that if one card goes missing ie lost in the post hopefully we should receive the other card.
Euchre.:-Played in many places around the world, with many variations of play. In fact there is a difference in the way of playing between St Austell, Newquay and Truro. I won't delve into the various ways of playing, but instead will just be concentrating on our League.
The St Austell and District Euchre League covers an area in Cornwall from Fowey to Lostwithiel, Lanivet, Roche, St Dennis, Probus and Mevagissey.
Our League is based on 1 to 6 sections depending on how many teams enter at the start of the season. The League is not run on a promotion and relegation system. Instead the teams that have entered are all fed into a computer and randomly sorted into sections. We find that the League players prefer doing it this way as the teams usually get to play at different venues each season, meet new players and maybe meet old friends that they haven't seen for a season or two.
The majority of our teams are made up of local Pubs and Clubs, or anywhere where there is alcoholic beverage consumed and most establishments are kind enough to supply a light snack of sandwiches and things at the end of the match.
Would all team captains please contact me if you have to cancel a match, preferably at least 24 hours before the match has to be played so that I can let your opposition know in good time so they in turn can inform their own team members.
My contact number is 01726 61712 I am available most evenings between 6-30 and 8-30 or you can leave a message.
For those people who do not like answering machines a short message will do for instance "Chris please ring (Your Tel No) about euchre"and i will ring you back when i can.Please do not rely on ringing the club or pub as the message does not always get passed on to the relevent team captain
