Description: This month we’d like to welcome back a familiar class that’s been on hiatus. It’s a bit sketchy, but we never erased it from our memory. The Sketching art class will be starting up in September and will again be taught by Robert Placensia. Robert has been involved in art for over 40 years, having taken art classes in high school and college. He enjoys many mediums including sketching, charcoal, and oil painting. He has even received awards for some of his works. The class will begin with portraits, as it provides the basic foundation that can later be applied to still life and scenery. Students need to bring their own pencils (#2 preferred), a sharpener, as well as a sketch pad. The size of the sketchpad will depend upon a students personal preference. Classes will be on Wednesdays beginning September 9th and last for 8 weeks. The class will be held in the Game Room from 8:30 - 10:30 am. The cost is $8 for members and $10 for non-members, but remember that you will need to register on Friday, September 4th from between 9-11 am.
Mexican Train Dominoes
Time: Fridays 1:00 pm
Cost: None members
Location: Game Room
Description: This month we’d like to shine the light no Mexican Train Dominoes. Mexican Train is a modern version of Dominoes, played with 91 double-twelve dominoes. Between four to eight players may participate, but if less than six people are playing, it is recommended that only the double blank through nine (or a set of Double 9 Dominoes) be used. A unique feature of Mexican Train is the little \"trains\" used for game markers. These may be any sort of marker (such as a bead, button, or coin), but the game\'s more fun if you use actual toy trains. The object of the game is to discard all your dominoes. You discard onto your own train, onto the Mexican train, onto other trains at the station, or onto other players trains. Mexican Train is a fun variation of dominoes, and a great party game. Make sure to have enough dominoes and plenty of the little trains on hand! The train leaves the station on Fridays at 1:00 p.m.
