Emblem Club military whist game set for Thursday
MIDDLETOWN — The Emblem Club 452 will sponsor a military whist Thursday at the BPOE Middletown Lodge 771, 44 Maynard Street.
The doors open at 6 p.m., and the entry fee of $7 includes refreshments. The whist will run from 7 to 9 p.m., with free door prizes, according to a press release.
Military whist is a card game played in groups of four, and requires no previous experience, according to the club. Players may bring their own group of four or join a group forming when they arrive.
Kevin Welch, renowned whist coordinator in the area, will lead the games, explaining how to play throughout the evening.
