Find Mah-Jongg Players, Teachers, & Tournaments HERE

Want to find players (or mah-jongg teachers) in your area? This bulletin board is one tool you can use; FAQ 15 describes more ways to find players, and FAQ 4A contains a dedicated list of teachers. In addition to players and teachers, you'll also find events and tournaments listed here on this bulletin board. Please do not ask me if I have any names of players or teachers that I am secretly withholding from this board and from FAQ 4A - why would I do that?? I post all players and teachers who contact me, and I am not withholding any names. So, please, don't ask!!

HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN BOARD:

    FIRST, SEARCH THE PAGE FOR PLAYERS IN YOUR AREA:

      A lot of people have posted announcements that they are looking for players like you! You could scroll through the entire list, but a better way to find people in your area is to use the Find/Search function in your Browser to search by city or state. If you're on a Windows computer, press Control-F (Command-F if you're on a Mac). If you use an iPad, tap the Search box in the upper right corner of your Safari screen. (It's a box with up arrow on top, this will open 2 rows of possibilities, scroll over to “Find on page” which opens up a search bar at bottom of page, type in item looking for, and it tells how many matches and highlights them. - Thanks to Susan S for this detail!) You may need to try different key words for your search. After your search, if you don't find anyone, I'm sorry, but this is all the names that I have. I swear that I am not withholding additional names, so please don't ask me if I have more names in your area, because I do not. If you don't find anyone on this list or in FAQ 4A (teachers) or FAQ 15 (players or teachers), write your own announcement and email it to me and I'll post your announcement below. That's the best I am able to do.

    SECOND, POST YOUR OWN ANNOUNCEMENT:

      EMAIL YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT to Webmaster@Sloperama.com to submit your Find Players/Teachers post. In your email, you must specify your location (just city, state, and maybe zip code; do not state your street address) and what kind of mah jongg you play (most American female players play "American/NMJL" mah jongg - if you do not know which variant you play, read FAQ 2b). Due to the actions of spammers, all users' posts go through me; I post them manually. That means you cannot expect your announcement to appear within a few minutes of your sending it to me; allow several hours at minimum. Entries that do not provide sufficient information will not be posted. No information you provide through this website shall be deemed confidential.

      Don't ask questions here. If you have a question to ask, use the Q&A Bulletin Board. This board is for announcements only.

      NO SHOUTING. Nobody is allowed to shout on this site except the webmaster. Typing in all capital letters is regarded as "shouting" on the internet. If you use all capitals in your post, it will be converted to lower case before being posted. Non-mah-jongg advertising may be blacked out or deleted.

      EVENT ORGANIZERS: Please send your announcement in text-only form for easy posting. No PDFs. We can post an image here (just one image per announcement), but the image must not exceed 400 pixels in the largest dimension. Images must be JPG or GIF or PNG attachments in an email (not a link, and not pasted into the email; no DOC files, no PDFs). Links must show complete URL in the link title (not like this, but rather like this: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/links.html#h-12.1.4). When announcing an event, please include the year in which the event is to occur.

    Click to submit your own announcement,
    or just email webmaster at sloperama dot com.

    If you have already posted on this board within the past year, and if your post is still visible below, PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO PLACE A NEWER ANNOUNCEMENT unless you have moved to a different city, or your game has changed to a different day of the week, or some other substantial change has occurred in regards to your posted information. It annoys the webmonster.

    Legal Notice: owner accepts no responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any of these listings--please use your discretion in contacting fellow potential players. "When you email me, I own it." The price of the information I give is that it is given only in this public forum. Emailing me with a question or comment on the topics covered here constitutes permission for your email to be made public. (Business inquiries and scholar/journalist queries are of course treated with all due confidentiality.) Thank you.



Live in westside Los Angeles and want to learn? My name is Tom Sloper, and this is my website. They call me "Mr. Mah-Jongg." I wrote the definitive book on mah-jongg East & West, "The Red Dragon & The West Wind." I will teach you ANY kind of mah-jongg (American, Chinese Classical, Chinese Official, Japanese, Hong Kong, Taiwanese...!). Classes at your home or at a neutral location. Private lesson cost varies depending on class size; you need to have a minimum group size of four students. If your group wants to learn American mah-jongg, your group needs to commit to at least three weekly lessons. You can email me at . And more teachers are listed in FAQ 4a as well as below (search this page for your area). Before contacting me or another teacher, it's a good idea to read FAQ 2, so you know which kind of mah-jongg you want to learn.

Join our American Mah Jongg Club; 30 players and growing! We play primarily in Santa Monica, six to seven days per week. We have a contest for a "night out on the town" and a little gift. It's quite fun and everyone is really nice. The experienced games move fast. We are special in that we offer a lot of games for beginners to play. We also have lessons for novices. Won't you join us?

Alzheimer's Association: Mah Jongg for Memories

>From: Rachel Schall
>Sent: Wednesday, March 20, 2019 12:10 PM
>Subject: Mah Jongg for Memories
>Dear Tom ,
>I am reaching out to tell you about Mah Jongg for Memories, an exciting new event for the Alzheimer’s Association’s The Longest Day fundraiser. Through this event, the generosity of Mah Jongg players will soon be helping to fund care, support, and research for the over 5.8 million people in the United States who are living with this disease and other dementias, and their nearly 16 million caregivers.
>Here’s what Mah Jongg for Memories is all about. Around June 21 (The Longest Day of 2019) Mah Jongg groups across the country will be dedicating their regular play-days to the Alzheimer’s Association by making donations to the cause. Also, other players will be holding more elaborate and larger day-long fundraising events. Some will have lunch and silent auctions, while others will enjoy snacks and donate their day’s winnings. All, however, will combine the fun and challenge of Mah Jongg with the objective of ending Alzheimer’s, the all-consuming disease that threatens the mental ability of every Mah Jongg player.
>We are asking for your help in spreading the word about Mah Jongg for Memories to your students, groups, and other Mah Jongg players. If any of your contacts want to get involved, we can help them get organized. We hope you will join us as we connect Mah Jongg groups around the country to create a significant impact on future research and services.
>I would love to meet with you or set up a call and can even quickly help you or others register for this event online. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact me at 323.486.6447 or reply to this email. Let’s get “crakking” to have some fun and fight Alzheimer’s at the same time!
>Thank you!
>Rachel

Hi all:
I am currently on vacation in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.(33411) I'll be here for another two weeks. I'm an intermediate player and have been playing for only 2 years. At home in New York State I play twice a week and friend's homes and at a Senior Center. I would love to find a friendly game while I am here in Florida. Thank you!
