What’s on at The Legion?

Tuesday Night is Games Night

Come down to Maple Ridge Legion for games night every Tuesday beginning at 6.30pm. You can play Darts, Euchre or Crib, and you don’t have to be a member to check it out!

Come early and have dinner and a drink before you play. The menu is viewable in the ‘Lounge and Kitchen’ tab.

Please consider becoming a member of the Royal Canadian Legion to support our branch, see ‘Membership’ for details.

Darts

Darts at the Legion is a mixed league and you don’t have to know how to play, beginners are welcome. The League runs from September to May, with games starting at 7pm. The cost is $50 a year if you decide to join, with the money going to trophies and a banquet at the end of the year. There is a charge for entry to some tournaments if you get serious about your darts game!

You can come alone or with a friend, there are a minimum of 4 people a team, the only ask is that you bring your own darts. There are usually 8-9 teams on a Tuesday night, so it gets exciting.

The Darts team at the Legion also play the Army and Navy in Maple Ridge, so there is a friendly rivalry. If you want to practice in the day, you are welcome to come to the Legion and practice. A Legion member needs to sign you in (it’s a max of 3 non members to one Legion member for the sign in), and there is always someone happy to do that in the short term.

The contact for Darts is Donna Knox at 778 888 5481. Please call if you have questions.

Crib

Crib at the Legion on Tuesday night starts at 7pm, be there at 6.45pm ready to play or learn, but for Crib you do need to bring a partner. Tuesday night is 10 card crib and beginners are welcome!

The cost is $5 to play, and all money goes towards prizes, prize draws and a Christmas Dinner. You do not have to be a member of the Legion, but you will require a member to sign you in.

There is also the opportunity to play 5 card crib on a Monday night at the Legion, at the same time, 6.45pm for 7pm and you again require a partner.

Crib is very popular, on the night we visited there were 11 tables running for Crib each with 4 players!

The contact for Crib is Linda Cole, 604 463 5091 Cell 604 561 2650, please call if you have questions.

Euchre

Euchre at the Legion starts at 6.45pm, so be there at 6.30pm so you can get a drink, maybe earlier if you would like to try our great kitchen menu!

It runs all year round every Tuesday, and they do prefer people who know how to play or at least have an idea. The group is very welcoming and is always willing to share tips and tricks for how to play, new players are always welcome. You don’t need to bring a partner to play, except on the second Tuesday of the month.

The cost is $5 to play, but you can win that money back, and more! The team also plays in Provincials with other Legions, the next Provincial Crib Tournament is September 20th and 21st.

The contact for Euchre is Tom Miller 604 313 6463, call if you have questions.
