The Spades Connection was founded in September of 2000 by a group of friends. Their purpose was and continues to be bringing people together promoting competitive card playing while nurturning new friendships as well as rekindling old ones. They strive to present a well-organized event while allowing time for as much social interaction and memory making as the weekend progresses. The registration fee of the tournament is $100.00 USD. These monies are used to cover expenses associated with an event. Expenses include the renting of the banquet facitlities, supplied meals, welcome packets, etc.
