First Fall AlgomaTrad Dance, Sept. 29, Euchre Tournament Fundraiser, Sept 28, and FINEST KIND this weekend!

single post

The fun never seems to stop here at AlgomaTrad central – we have 3 events occurring this month, a bit of something for everyone!

EUCHRE TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER DETAILS CHANGED:  The tournament WILL STILL OCCUR on Friday, September 28th, 7pm-10:30pm, at the Legion Hall in Richards Landing, BUT THERE WILL BE NO CASH PRIZES; we just found out that this is illegal in Ontario. Entry into the tournament, a fundraiser for AlgomaTrad,  WILL NOW BE $10 and there will be door prizes. The tournament will still be progressive – each player will play with a different partner each game and record their individual score throughout the evening, but all you will get is bragging rights. Register by contacting Barb at 705 248 1564. Proceeds to help pay for the operating expenses of the AlgomaTrad Family Camp.
