Cards anyone?

28 May 2009

Cards anyone? Image

Anyone for a game of 500?

Watergate resident Reg White wants to meet fellow card players for a regular weekly game.  Games would most likely be played at The Hub, at Victoria Harbour.

In a move which would confound critics, 82-year-old Reg moved to Docklands from a retirement home in suburban Donvale.

From his new Docklands home he can actually walk to public transport, the doctor, pharmacy and supermarket.

Reg has retained his car to travel over to Doncaster RSL for weekly card games and to drive to church on Sundays.  But if he found some cards or chess companions in Docklands it would tick another box reinforcing why Docklands is a great place to live.

Reg moved to Docklands in 2006 following the passing of his late wife, Nancy.  His daughter Sharon lives at Dock 5.

He and Sharon recently returned from a trip to Japan.  The previous time Reg visited Japan was in 1946 when he witnessed Hiroshima as part of an allied occupation force.

He is very impressed with Japan and would be only too pleased to discuss this and many other issues over a few hands of 500.

Interested players can contact Reg on 9670 0909.
