Card Game Tournament a Benefit for Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care

Saturday's fundraiser will introduce the game Q MahjonggTM

A card game tournament to benefit Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge, 150 N. Kellogg Ave. in Goleta.

Called the Q BreakTM Tournament, the fundraiser introduces Q MahjonggTM, a new nongambling card game.

Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 9 a.m., and up to 40 free tournament seats will be available.

Prizes include Best Buy gift cards in $2,000, $1,000, $500 and $250 denominations. In addition, $50 Albertsons grocery gift cards will go to the 16 first-round winners.

Q MahjonggTM was created by Jacob Wong. Played with the 52-card Dragon DeckTM, the game is easy to learn. Reformulated from traditional Mahjongg, it’s played with seven cards rather than 13 tiles from classic Mahjongg. It is suitable for two, three or four people to play.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
