Canasta has been played at Sweetgrass since 2011. Residents enjoyed playing at the Sales Center and in their homes before the Lakehouse opened. Our club has now grown to over 200 members, who enjoy weekly play in addition to fun and exciting special events. We have Quarterly Membership meetings, and these typically include some type of special Tournament Play.
Weekly play days are held every Wednesday and Thursday, from 12:30pm -4:00 pm in the Ballroom at the Lakehouse. Members and students sign-in upon arrival, and Ballroom doors open at 12:15 pm. Individuals and foursomes are all welcome. We ask that everyone play by the “Sweetgrass Social Canasta” rules during club play dates. Please Note: We do not use rotation play at this time.
Any Sweetgrass Resident who might be interested in joining our Social Canasta Club should send us an email at SweetgrassSocialCanasta@gmail.com Give us your name, email, and phone number. Our Training Coordinator will contact you to schedule up to 3 FREE LESSONS. Lessons are scheduled in advance, so please contact us if interested. We offer these lessons so that everyone can learn to play Canasta the “Sweetgrass Way” and join in weekly Wednesday and Thursday play days and special events. No previous card playing expertise is required, and we ask that everyone play by a common set of rules during our club play dates.
Annual dues are $15.00, payable when lessons are complete, and annually thereafter. We do have a policy to allow resident and non-resident guests – please contact us at SweetgrassSocialCanasta@gmail.com for details.
Annual membership dues are collected each January, and are used to cover the cost of game supplies and subsidize activity expenses, as needed. Dues are not pro-rated regardless of the month joined. Membership dues are $15.00 and run through December 31st.
