Interest Groups 

CFUW/Kanata members are invited to join as many Interest Groups as they wish. It's the best deal in town - friendship, education and fun, all free! Whether it be on a journey towards laying down a grand slam at the card table, or enjoying many culinary delights, we hope that you will join us for a good time.

All the interest groups meet at times that do not conflict with the second Wednesday of the month, when the CFUW/Kanata General Meeting is held.

For more information concerning the Interest Groups, please contact Jean Biro, the Interest Group Coordinator, at cfuwkanata.interestgroups@gmail.com

    The Monday Afternoon Bridge Group meets every Monday all through the year (even the summer!) from 1 to 4 p.m. We have a fairly large group of approximately 28 members. Every member hosts twice a year. Most members can accommodate 3 - 4 tables. A few members can only host 2 tables. We used to play every 2nd Monday but with so many players it was better to play every Monday so that if someone does not get to play one Monday, she can get into the next one. We ask our members to call the next hostess no more than 2 weeks ahead of time to reserve a spot to play. We are a friendly and lively group. There is almost as much conversation as there is bridge since we enjoy seeing each other when we get together to play.

    Mah-Jongg (or "Maajh") is a fascinating rummy-like game that is played with tiles. It is a game of skill, strategy and calculation, that also includes an element of chance. Originating in China supposedly around the time of Confucius, it has evolved so that there are at least eighty versions of Mah-Jongg played by various cultures. Mah Jongg falls into two broad categories: National (American/Jewish) Mah-Jongg and Classical (Chinese) Mah-Jongg.

    CFUW/K plays National Mah-Jongg, which uses a card of Standard Hands against which ideally four players per square table play the game with 152 tiles. Several members now own Mah-Jongg sets that they bring to all the games.

    Members are very enthusiastic so Mah Jongg games are scheduled each week year round, with the rare cancellation. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month, the games are currently held in the Bistro Room at Stonehaven Manor Apartments, 70A Stonehaven Drive. Members take turns hosting the games either there or in their homes, from 1:00 p.m. to ~ 4:30 p.m. with a break somewhere between 2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. for tea and a snack. We carpool whenever we can.
