Welcome to the Artie Turco
Memorial Uno Club
The first UNO games begun
in 1984. Actual records of Uno sessions did not begin until March 22,
1991. Records of rules and policies were loosely kept since the UNO
CLUB'S conception in 1984, however, little history was recorded.
Originally, the game was played on Sunday afternoons at 666 Straight
Path where Joey and Denise Ramo resided. The first group did not
organize itself as a club. They were Joe (Pegasus) Auricchio, Denise,
Richie and Dotti (Butch) Ramo and John Ramo and sometimes Desert Joe.
During 1984, Artie and Beth Turco began playing the game with Joe and
Denise on Sunday afternoons. Play time was according to when Artie
and Beth finished at their engraving shop - usually around 5 pm. That
was the beginning.
It became the Artie Turco Memorial Uno Club on September 18, 1999, in memory of Artie Turco.
