Nutz4Gin May Supplement News ~ Extra Edition

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY LADIES

WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS

We are glad you chose to join us at Nutz4Gin.  Now all we need is for you to come play in a tour.  If you need any assistance with anything, feel free to contact any staff member.  If you also have hosting skills or want to learn hosting let us know that too.  Best of luck to all of you.

POGO IS TAKING AWAY SOME GREAT GAMES

BUT YOU CAN STILL SCORE BIG WITH GEMS 

Remember when we tried some multi games in the league but had to stop for lack of hosts?  As you all should know by now that Pogo will be eliminating these games as of June 4th.  They said they will be not be supported by internet browsers after that date and are doing away with all java games.  Jungle Gin is still my favorite game in all of Pogoland.  But I will miss the three shown below.  Therefore I am going to host a Marathon of Favorites on the next two Saturdays beginning after the 12:30 Jungle Gin tour.  Starting at 1pm on Saturday  May 18th and 25th.  I will have 2 round True Swiss quickies of these games in hour long blocks.  Each of these tours will also offer 5 gems to every member who registers and plays.  It's a great way to build up your gems banks.  Within the hours for Dice City Roller and Lottso there will be additional gems for the High Score and the 2nd High Score.  A 10 Gems bonus will go to the highest score and the 2nd highest will earn 5 gems.  During the hour of Bingo the player with the most bingos wins the 10 gems bonus and 2nd place will get the 5 gems bonus.  And at the end of each daily marathon, the player who played in the most games will earn a 20 gem bonus.  In case of a tie, all tied players will win the 20 bonus gems.  There should be at least 6 to 8 quickie games in each hour block of time.  That makes it possible to earn 30 to 40 extra gems before any bonus wins.

So Please Join Me for the May Marathon of Expiring Favorites

We will be using the same rooms we did before since they are still available.  For DCR it is N/A (no auction) 30's Malibu.  For Fortune Bingo it is 1 card speedy Oingo Bingo.  And for lottso it is Team Play 30's Casino Nights.  The game rooms backdoor links are still available on our homepage on the BACKDOOR button.  The links will also be on each tour page.    

Please don't miss this opportunity for more diversified fun and a great way to get free gems added to your gems bank.  Remember this all starts on Saturday May 18th at 1:00 pm.

*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***

TO PLAY THESE GAMES YOU WILL NEED JAVA

If the browser you are currently using no longer supports java you will need to add it for the marathon games.  Since IE and Google no longer has java, I downloaded Pale Moon.  It is a safe and fast download and works for Jungle Gin and other flash games too.  It will open your game room in a pop up window and in the case of Jungle Gin it will also open the table in a new pop up window allowing you to see the lobby and not have to leave the rooms to jump more tours.  Download it today so you will be ready for the Saturday games.   Go to https://www.palemoon.org/  then click the Windows or Linux link and start the download. 

Mark your calendars and don't be late.  We need your full support to make this fun challenge happen.

Thanks for being a Nutz4Gin member

We love you

Nutz4Gin NEWS FOR MAY 2019

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the loyal members who come out to make our tours and league successful.  You are all amazing and very awesome.  And I want to thank my hosts pflead and slktaz for all they do to help make our time together fun and enjoyable.  We need more like them.  Please join me once again and send swamp another prayer for her recovery.   She has had a very bad time this past year and I only hope it is going to be a lot better for her soon.   Please feel free to use our chat box located just below the GO PLAY button for your prayers, compliments, and comments.  But nothing negative there please.  

HAPPY SPRING NUTZ

I am sure everyone is anxious to start enjoying Spring.  Most of us have had enough of the crazy weather of snow, wind, rain, floods, and chaos jumping from one degree to the other.  But, along with Spring means our tour attendance levels go down while everyone is outside busy with planting and maintaining vegetable and flower gardens and just enjoying the chance to be out in the fresh warm air.

OUR UPCOMING CONTESTS

Because of the fact that most people will be out and about enjoying Spring I have decided to postpone the Wheel of Fortune Contest and move it to July.  By that time everyone will be glad to get inside the air conditioning and play more tours.  Of course there will be a slow down again for the Canada Day and Independence Day Holiday weekend but for the most part we should be good then.  Our Flag Day Contest will continue as planned for June 14th.

GEMS DAY WEDNESDAY

We will still continue our GEMS TOURS every Wednesday every Tour.  For every tour you play in on Wednesday you will receive 4 Gems added to your gem bank.  Anytime you want to cash in any gems just email Sell at Nutz4Gin@gmail.com with your requests and choice of prize.  For more information you can refer to the CONTEST button on the home page below the Welcome Home sign.

2vs2 GEMS TEAMS TOURS

We will also continue with the Gems Teams Tours.  In those tours every player on Sunday and/or Wednesday will receive 6 Gems for playing and the tour winning team will receive an additional 10 Gems each as a bonus.  If you are not sure how to play teams you can visit the OUR GAMES button below the Contest button.  There is a graphic in the TEAMS column that will show you how to join with or without a partner and the game rules and how to set a table.  Do not worry if you do not have a partner just register as an auto team and a partner will be assigned automatically by cases ladder when the tour begins.  Do not worry if you feel you are not good enough to play.  Everyone on this league is good enough to play with anyone as well as against them in single matches.  We encourage team play because of the added enjoyment they bring.  They really are fun.  So please join us on Sunday at 1:00 pm and again on Wednesday at 7:00 pm.  And please jump early, check-in is open all day.        

Nutz4Gin BIRTHDAY ADMINISTRATOR

I am looking for a committed volunteer who has the time and patience to make sure we have every member's birthday for me to record on our Birthday Calendar on the Community Tab.  No hosting is required but we would need you to ask and collect birthdays from members not already on the calendar and to post the birthday on the shout box when it's time and to send me an email reminder the day before or day of as well.  You may want to do more but that is up to you.  I just need one volunteer and will thoroughly explain the duties to you by phone call or email whatever way you prefer.  If you are interested please email me with your Club Pogo /Nutz member name and request to Nutz4Gin@gmail.com and please put the word "birthday volunteer" on the subject line.     

WE WELCOME YOUR COMMENTS & SUGGESTIONS

Best of luck in all our tours, if you need anything let us know.

Thanks for being a most valued member of Nutz4Gin

MISSING HOSTS AND ADMIN HELP



I really appreciate everyone's patience while I post gems and get upcoming contests prepared and made. Most of you know that Rita just went back to work full time and has small children. Slktaz also works full time. pflead can only devote a few hours a week to tours at this time. Swamp has been on an extended personal and medical leave and while she just finished chemo, she is not doing well at all and could use your prayers. I have no idea when we might see her again. I miss her dearly but I know she hasn't got the strength or ability to play or host at this time. 

That just leaves me to do all the administrative duties and much of the hosting and I also work 40 hours a week. So again, thank you for your patience and understanding while we continue to provide you with as many tours and fun contests as possible. If any of you have hosted or want to learn to host and can spare an hour or two a week, we could use your help. Please contact any staff member.

HAPPY NEW YEAR NUTZ

I JUST WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT WILL BE ON THE AGENDA SOON.

On January 16th, the Nutz will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. What a decade its been. We've had our ups and downs, plenty of laughter, too many tears, two live tournaments, and the largest variety of tournaments and contests than any other gin league on Cases Ladder.  We've made great friends and played in some great challenging games.  And we mourned together when some of our wonderful members left us too soon.  With all that it has been a very rewarding time for me to be able to do so much for so many and bring strangers together and make them feel like family.  It really has been great.  However, after hosting over 7100 tours of my own plus filling in or finishing up for other hosts, I am amazed that I am still not ready to stop.   So I look forward to continuing for at least one more year and hopefully even longer.  The first big thing to happen in the New Year is our 10th anniversary celebration!

IT'S OUR 10th BIRTHDAY

ON JAN 16th 2019

WE WILL HAVE SEVERAL DAYS OF SPECIAL TOURS TO HONOR OUR DECADE OF TOURNAMENT FUN OFFERING GEMS, BUX, BADGES, AND MORE.  WATCH THE CALENDAR AND HELP MAKE OUR CELEBRATION THE BEST.

~~

~~~

ALSO MORE GEMS TOURS 

IN JANUARY COME PLAY OUR SPECIAL GEMS TOURS EVERY WEDNESDAY.  EACH TOUR WILL BE WORTH GEMS BUT NOT JUST TO THE WINNER.  I WILL BE GIVING AWAY GEMS TO EACH PERSON WHO PLAYS IN A TOUR EVERY WEDNESDAY ALL DAY.  FOR REGULAR SINGLE, DOUBLE, OR SWISS TOURS EVERY PLAYER WHO REGISTERS AND PLAYS WILL EARN 2 GEMS FOR THEIR GEM BANK.  AND THE WINNER OF EACH REGULAR SCHEDULED GEMS TOUR WILL EARN 4 BONUS GEMS.  

  IN OUR TEAMS TOURNAMENTS 2 VS 2, EVERY PLAYER WILL EARN 4 GEMS FOR THEIR BANK AND THE WINNING TEAM MEMBERS WILL EARN 10 BONUS GEMS EACH.      

KEEP IN MIND, IF YOU REGISTER FOR A TOUR BUT FAIL TO SHOW YOU WILL NOT EARN THE GEMS.   

~~

CHECK YOUR CURRENT GEMS BALANCE ON THE CONTEST LINK ON THE HOME PAGE.  WHEN  YOU HAVE EARNED ENOUGH TO SELECT A PRIZE YOU LIKE, JUST LET ME KNOW,  ANYWAY YOU WANT TO NOTIFY ME IS FINE.   EMAIL ME EITHER AT NUTZ4GIN@GMAIL.COM OR THROUGH POGO OR THE NUTZ PRIVATE MESSAGE. ANY GEMS TRADED FOR PRIZES WILL BE SUBTRACTED FROM YOUR BALANCE.  

~~

Our Hosts

Our hosts are the top of the bunch. We just don't have enough of them. Why not join our staff and help us run even more tours every day?  All it takes to start is an hour of your time a week.  Of course, if you want to volunteer more hours we would love to have you.

 

Thanks again for all the wonderful times we have had over the years.  If you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns, please let us know so that our next coming year will be even better.  

HAPPY NEW YEAR

We Wish You A Healthy, Happy & Prosperous New Year
