Bridge for Beginners

Bridge is by far the greatest card game of all, and it can provide immense challenge and enjoyment. Where to begin? Bridge is more complicated than other card games, and beginners are sometimes discouraged by this. Relax! Join this group and you will be on your way to becoming a bridge player.

Tuesday Hiking Group

Joyce will share the expertise she has gained as a member of the Bruce Trail hiking organization . . . and a little less of the obsession that can mark this group. Enjoy an opportunity to get out on Tuesday mornings to hike trails in our area and enjoy some stimulating companionship and conversation too.

Euchre

If you're intimidated by Bridge, then euchre may be just the game for you. This trick taking card game can be learned easily and is a social game played in tables with four people in two partnerships. This group is open to new and experienced Euchre players.

Nordic Walking in Spring

Nordic walking is a physical activity and a sport. The activity is performed with specially designed walking poles similar to ski poles. Nordic walkers use more of their entire body (with greater intensity) and receive fitness building stimulation not present in normal walking for the chest, triceps, biceps, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles. Nordic walking has been estimated as producing up to a 46% increase in energy consumption, compared to walking without poles.

We'll learn how to use the poles and then enjoy an opportunity to get out and exercise together.

Out to the Movies

We'll take in movies locally and look also to enjoying the offerings in the Orangeville Monday Night at the Movies series and in Toronto. We may also take in the Live at The Met presentations at the Cineplex Theatre.
