EAn ongoing and disturbing trend is that in our region more and more card clubs are giving up.
Hemelverdegem did not escape this either and during the Corona period the carders club “Sint Jans trump” established in café “Sint Jan” at Rita, also did the books.
But whoever thought that this was the end of the manille in Sesjans was apparently wrong, because no less than fifty-two manillers showed up on the traditional 11 November card, arranged by the party committee there.
Former chairman of “Sint Jans Troef” Julien Soetens and FCH chairwoman Nina de Smet, both fervent card players themselves, gave the best of themselves to bring the competition between the thirteen tables to a successful conclusion.
At the card players the ambiance was soon set and there were many curses when getting a bad card or a mistake by the teammate. But this didn’t spoil the fun and there was a lot of knocking and knocking when going without and.
As the evening progressed, even the most concentrated card players found time to enjoy the sandwich with cup, cheese or minced meat offered by the Hemelverdegem Party Committee.
How beautiful life is…. place with a card and in between a drink and a drink.
