Ukes in the Park

The Ukulele Group recently went up to Daisy Hill Forest for a concert in the park. They had a lot of fun entertaining the locals.

Kevin, the tutor writes:

"It was a great day and enjoyed by all. I was told we must do it again. Tried to get a photo of all the locals who came to watch, but the Kangaroos wouldn't stay still long enough to get captured."

F50 Mah Jong for Beginner

On Mondays, you can see a group of ladies in the library at Springwood engaged in the ancient game of Mahjong, also spelled majiang, mah jongg and numerous other variants. It is commonly played by four players (with some three-player variations found in South Korea and Japan.)

The game and its regional variants are widely played throughout Eastern and South Eastern Asia and have a small but growing following in Western countries, including Australia.

The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. It is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation and involves a degree of chance.

The group meets on Monday between 1:00pm - 2:30pm at the Logan North Library at Springwood.
