Pinochle is starting up again online.  We will play on the second and fourth Wednesdays from 1:00 until 3:00, like our regular schedule, using  If you wish to participate, contact Stan Johnson at or 925-938-7016.  Each person will need his or her own computer.  As usual, we welcome beginners and ladies.

This Pinochle group is a multi-branch activity open to women.  We meet twice a month at Rocco’s Pizza, 2909 Ygnacio Valley Rd., Walnut Creek (in the Encina Grande shopping center near Whole Foods) to play 3, 4, 5, or 6-handed pinochle.  Of course, we are suspended during the Coronavirus pandemic.  Play will resume as allowed by local authorities and SIR.

We play starting at 1:00 for two hours on the second and fourth Wednesdays.  

Beginners are welcome as are partners of members.  We provide instruction as requested, and most beginners learn within the first session.  Before the pandemic, we were getting 10 to 16 participants.  We have plenty of room for new people.
