FALLBROOK – Mah Jong aficionados have an opportunity to put their talents to a test while contributing to scholarship funds for young girls and women in the community. Fallbrook American Association of University Women’s annual Mah Jong Tournament will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Fallbrook VFW located at 1175 Old Stage Road.

As always, all players are welcome. The entrance fee is $20. Doors open at 11:15 a.m. for lunch, and play begins at noon. Prizes will be given for table winners and a drawing for opportunity items will be held when play ends.

This is a chance to interact socially and at the same time show off abilities to multi-task, or to simply relax and have fun. As Kathy Bierbrauer, AAUW’s corresponding secretary and avid mah jong player, puts it, “Mah jong is a wonderful social activity. It allows people to enjoy both competition and interaction. It also brings together a variety of neighbors. Those are just some of the reasons why the AAUW tournament has been so popular and successful.”

Players may check in, buy tickets and pay at the door. To sign up, contact Araxy Moosa at (760) 723-2262.
