 It’s somewhere between Go Fish and Bridge.

That's a wide divide

I am glad they do not play Euchre in the casinos or I would have to go play.

My favorite and only card game.

Whenever my brothers and I all get together it's Hearts.

Played Hearts once and don't remember. Learn Hearts and teach Euchre, sounds like a deal.

The same people who give you a blank stare when you mention “clockwise” don’t play Euchre, or cards in general; too analog.

Hey Neil @DizRotus you going to join us?

Throw @ClaudeJ1 in a car and move on down. Or maybe my good friend @kevinmclogan

 

Have you spent hours in a car with Claude?  My brain can only take so much talk of Hz, REW, Ohms, Xmax, etc.  Claude is tri-lingual, he speaks French, English, and Audio.

Maybe if he talked about audio in French it would sound more musical.

Euchre probably cost me a  year in college....  

 

I'm amazed as I look back at how much we'd blow off classes and how quickly we'd blow them off if we had some games going.

 

VERY fun  game once you get into it.

 

Be fun to be there to give all you bozo's a Masters lesson....  HA!!!!

 

:P

We do have a separate room at the venue for any of the over achievers so we can give them a time out if needed for the rest of us to catch up.

By the way, I go here to play.  I don't much care for the setup as I MUCH prefer a chance to talk to people via keyboard or voice....  this has some canned "nice job" comments...  drives me nuts however, whoever created it DID find a way to shut me up!!!

Good idea.  I could nod occasionally, pretend to understand, and still enjoy some music.

 

Claude @ClaudeJ1 I wouldn’t kid you if I thought for an instant you didn’t  know I value you as a friend and neighbor.  But, remember the joke about asking the time and being told how to build a watch?

Plenty of places to stop along the way for bathroom breaks.  I understand your situation, but you can figure out a way and then you will have to back up all that card playing crap that you're slinging.  LOL

 

It would be good to see you there Richard.

But then it would suggest one liked to hear the sound of their own voice, much as a Frenchman...

I didn't know that you two had already met.  Sounds like you're close and know him pretty well.

Of course, I’ve seen/heard people tell the dealer to, “pick it up” while in the can or getting a beer, without seeing the cards.

Probably would have gone over better in French.

 

Hé Lou, un certain Richard est  pour te voir.

Ok....  so I'm looking at my calendar and it's possible I could make it.

 

Couple questions:

 

1.  We gonna toss some cards, possibly Euchre the first evening? 

2.  Who's up for breakfast at Wafflehouse in Hope?

3.  I've got a Peach preamp sitting unused.....  One of Mark's early circuit boards (if I understand correctly)  Was sent back to him and I'm not knowledgable to say exactly what he did, I know ONE thing he did was change all the control knobs to nicer units (the behind the front is nicer)

 

I THINK one of the RCA jacks in the back is getting wiggly.  Not sure it's one I used or not (unit is currently in closet)

 

Worked perfectly fine before I replaced it with a unit with XLR outputs.

Oh, and it also has (from what he told me) his last in stock unit of a new walnut case with dovetailed front.  

I still have original box for the Peach.

 

Scratching my head....  $700 sound ballpark???

 

I also have a K510 (no mumps).  This is the one painted red.  Was going to be used in a center LaScala....until the wife put her (now deceased) fathers buffet table there.  I'm not even going to try to fight that fight.  

 

How's about $75??  You can keep the red!!

 

Pardon if this isn't the right thread to mention this stuff.....  I've really not put any thought into going and today, looked at calendar and it might be doable.
