Updated 17th March 2020
It is with regret that the committee has made the decision to indefinatly suspend the rest of the season. No matches are to be played on or after 19th March 2020.The Mike Raymond is cancelled as is the knockout competition. The rest of the seasons events are on hold and a decision will be made at a later date. Please watch the website for future news. The health and safety of our players is paramount at this time.Stay safe everyone.
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
