    Hello you! You look like you could use some fun right about now! A quick break from midterms, projects, and essays, perhaps?

     Well the Berkeley Canasta Club has just the thing for you! Friday, November 5th and November 12th, we will be hosting our first ever Canasta Tournament!! The tournament is free and open to all students, which means you stand to lose nothing, but get a chance to earn some classy prizes (win or lose!) if you enter the tournament.

Here are some quick background details about the Tournament (don't worry if you don't understand it yet, we will discuss this in more detail at our next meeting.):

The tournament will be run Swiss-style. Each team (2 man teams) will play six rounds - three of them on November 5, three of them on November 12. There is no elimination. The match-up in the first round is random. In each subsequent round, teams are matched up according to how well they have done so far in the tournament.

Rounds are played to 1500 points. To simplify counting, only canastas (pure or mixed), red 3's, and going out count for points.

You can read the more at the Official Tournament Rules Page.  Once you find a partner, remember to SIGN UP for the tournament here!


     Don't know how to play? Don't have a partner? That's fine! Come out to our meeting this Friday, October 15th, 215 Dwinelle at 7pm to learn and find a partner! (Feel free to reply to this post as well to see who still needs a teammate. Smiley)

See you all at the meeting Friday! Smiley
