Str8 Eight Tournament

The idea for Str8 Eight (pronounced "straight eight") came to Alfred resident Peter McClain in a dream. The game is quite simple; players are dealt a hand of cards and need to complete a sequence of eight numbers before any of their opponents complete the challenge.
Beginners are welcome to attend to learn this fun game. Prizes will be awarded for the grand champion!
Come at 9 P.M. for training. The tournament begins at 9:30 P.M.
(9:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Come make fast friendships with this event, similar to speed dating. After, enjoy some free ice cream with your new friends!
