Just to clarify for all. The original question was if there was a way that Eliters can host Canasta Pogo tourneys in rooms that are available to ALL and not just to Club Pogo members. As Morgie tried to explain unfortunately there isn't anything we can do about Pogo only offering Canasta, and some other games, for Club Pogo Members only. So that means we do not have any options for hosting Canasta, Gin and Qwerty tourneys that are available to Non Club Pogo Members.
It's true $30 can be a bit much for some. However, for those that are able to and have already purchased the Club Pogo Membership we want to be able to offer as much variety of games as we can. I realize that means the people who are are Non Club Pogo Members miss out on some of the games, but the only option would be to drop the Club Pogo only leagues and then the Club Pogo Members would miss out on the opportunity to play. So either way someone would be missing out. I believe it's best to offer as much as we can.
There are times that Pogo offers discounted memberships or you may also purchase a month by month membership. These are options that some people may want to look into as well.
I hope this helps. We appreciate the support all of you fine Eliters give to ALL of the Pogo Leagues.
Keep it rockin!! and have a wondeful New Year everyone. Happy gaming!!!!
