CONGRATULATIONS to JIM RANSTROM! His good fortune (and skillful cribbage playing)
has landing him, once again, in FIRST PLACE!
CONGRATULATIONS to Cindy (SECOND PLACE) & Steve for earning additional Grass Roots points!
Look carefully at Cindy's standings stats. She is now in PLUS territory on spread points!
Cindy also took today's $5 DIRECTOR'S AWARD (a 3-2-2-1-10/Face Card = 14 points).
WELCOME BACK to Lew Hardy! Lew is a very skillful cribbage player,
and he ended the day in THIRD PLACE!
He also got the FIRST 24-HAND, later lost THE CHICKEN to me,
and later reclaimed THE CHICKEN and held on to it for the remainder of the day!
(We know that Saturdays are tough for Lew to play cribbage, but we hope he finds
time again soon to join us!)
For next week's DIRECTOR'S AWARD, email me YOUR
suggestion for the hand that you think should win this highly coveted award.
That hand could be next week's DIRECTOR'S AWARD!!
p.s. As always, just let me know if you want to be taken off this list!
CONGRATULATIONS to STEVE WENNSTROM!
Steve was our FIRST PLACE finisher today.
That Steve! What a force to be reckoned with!
Quite an odd day at the cribbage table, to say the least!
For those paying attention, it has been rare for more than one or two players
to earn Grass Roots points in any given week.
Today FIVE (5) players earned said points.
And then there were the skunks.
NINE! Count them! Nine SKUNKS!
ARLYN TEED inflicted three (3) of them herself, including one again ME!
(Can you imagine such a nice, sweet lady doing such a thing?)
JULIA BICK and RUTH ADAMS had mirror hands up until the 8th game.
Julia had not lost a single game.....and Ruth hadn't won a single game!
We were all excited at the prospect of Julia earning a GRAND SLAM (no losses),
but the pressure became too great and she lost her final two games.
Now don't feel too badly for Julia, as she ended the day in SECOND PLACE!
Ruth however, proceeded to earn our club's very 1st STRING OF PEARLS (no wins)!
Needless to say.....she went home with the not-so-coveted WORST SCORECARD prize.
(THANKS for bringing in the pretzel snacks today Ruth!)
HARLEY MIEDEMA finished the day in THIRD PLACE!
(See me next week Harley and claim your winnings!)
Harley and Arlyn Teed both finished with 13 game points,
and although Arlyn's net spread points were higher than Harley's,
Harley won one more game than Arlyn did, and 3rd place!
Jim Ranstrom claimed the 1st 24-hand,
but I was the one holding THE CHICKEN at the end of the day.
Karen Keil won the DIRECTOR'S AWARD (and $5) for scoring a RAGGEDY ANDY (6-7-8-2-2).
I witnessed many 14-point hands today with the 3-2-2-1-10 (or facecard)
so that will be next week's DIRECTOR'S AWARD, worth $5.
If that hand also includes a FLUSH or NOBS...I'll DOUBLE that prize!
Only two more weeks left in the current quarter.
Then we will start with fresh stats for the club standings
for the next 12-week period.
I'm looking forward to next week! I hope you'll join us!
(p.s. Just holler if you want to be taken off this distribution list)
