Sadly, it is with much regret that the Northern Rivers Euchre Club Committee has again decided to cancel our annual euchre tournament, scheduled for the 28th & 29th May 2022, following the uncertainty of COVID-19 border restrictions between NSW and Queensland and the current escalation of COVID-19 case numbers around the country.
This year our committee were left with the difficult task of deciding whether we should hold our euchre tournament in May 2022 following the lifting of certain restrictions which has impacted significantly on case numbers in the State. It was important that we be mindful of the current age demographic of our euchre players and the risk of contracting COVID at our tournament, noting the handling of cards and the large attendance we attract. Our president therefore sort advice from the chairperson of the Combined Euchre Clubs Association (CECA) of Queensland and New South Wales and on their advice and reluctance to hold an official CECA tournament this year, our committee made the decision to cancel the 2022 Northern Rivers Euchre Tournament.
During this time players have also expressed their concerns in registering for a euchre tournament due to the current health pandemic. Put simply, our committee could not see it responsible or feasible to hold our Tournament this year. We pride ourselves in holding a quality, professional tournament that everyone enjoys and to ensure we have the available funds and prize money for successful players to make their journey to our town worthwhile.
We will endeavour to make contact with the delegates of the Combined Euchre Clubs Association and the known accommodation providers in Lismore to ensure the message of our tournament’s cancellation is communicated to faithful members who attend. We take no responsibility or liability for any accommodation expenses, in light of the pandemic.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Secretary, Maureen on email; firstname.lastname@example.org
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your understanding. Rest assured, we anticipate to be back bigger and better next year on the FOURTH WEEKEND May 2023.

We Look Forward In Seeing You At Our Next Tournament!
