""An evening of playing euchre, making new friends and supporting the community will be in the cards when 88.1 The Park (WSDP-FM) hosts their 8th Annual Euchre Tournament on Saturday November 2, at 7:00 p.m. at the Plymouth Elks Club.

Players can enjoy an evening of Euchre and support the student radio program that has been impacting students and serving the community for over 47 years. The Tournament was created by 88.1 Alum Denny Kapp.

“I’ve enjoyed playing in tournaments and decided to share the idea with the station. They thought this might be something we could do on an annual basis and we’re excited to bring it back for an eighth year,” said Kapp, a Westland resident.
The tournament costs $20 per player, if they register before October 28, and $25 at the door. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 10% of the field. Players will enjoy pizza, snacks and a cash bar.

“The tournament has grown every year and it helps a really great program. 88.1 gave me a head start into a career working in sports media. I learned how to cover a team through my broadcasts of Canton and Salem games. I’m glad to be able to still help the station,” said Kapp.

The tournament has added 25 cent Euchres and fifty-fifty raffle tickets. Players are encouraged to bring quarters.
You can sign up by emailing wsdpeuchre@gmail.com or by calling 248-WSDPEUCHRE (973-7382).

WSDP is owned and operated by the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. The station is staffed by students at Canton, Plymouth and Salem High Schools.
