Friday afternoons with the mahjong tiles
A two-day mahjong tournament wrapped up Friday at the Rancho Murieta Association Building. In addition to tables covered with mahjong tiles, there were tables of appetizers and beverages, as well as prizes for the tournament winners. Barbara Munson, left, and Amy Tresler organized the event. The mahjong group meets on the first and third Fridays of the month from 1 to 4:45 p.m. at the RMA Building. Tesler, the group coordinator, invites residents who are interested to join and learn this simplified Chinese/American version of the game, which is played with tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols.
