Yes, it's true! Cindy Grenville finally got that monkey off her back
and managed to actually win 12 Grass Roots points!
But wait! There's MORE! Did I mention that she finished in 2nd Place?
It was a good day for Cindy. CONGRATULATIONS CINDY!
Where are my manners? I've jumped ahead before properly
welcoming our two guests today...EDITH PAYNE and PAULA TROTTER!
(They're not really guests, as both of them have played with us in the past.
But it was nice to see them again.)
Anyhow, WELCOME to both of you! I hope you'll join us again soon!
Oh...did I forget to mention that EDITH took FIRST PLACE
and PAULA took THIRD PLACE? Well, they did indeed!
(Why is it that our visitors generally go home with all our money?)
In case you hadn't noticed, I've had a fairly successful couple of weeks,
so today I added a new DIRECTOR's PRIZE.
Today's DIRECTOR's PRIZE was $5 for the first RAGGEDY ANN (6-7-8-A-A).
Nobody claimed it, so next week I will DOUBLE it to $10.
GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS!
First, the BAD news.......I came in LAST PLACE today! Can you imagine that?
The only reason JULIA BICK and ROY BUMGARNER didn't get to claim
the WORST SCORECARD prize was because they each skunked
an opponent, and I didn't.
(The three of us won only 3 games each today.)
Now, the GOOD news....I scored the FIRST 24-HAND, grabbed the CHICKEN
and went home with $5 in my pocket.
Speaking of CHICKEN, our feathery friend was flying around the table
today like a chicken with his head chopped off.
I think I counted SIX 24-hands today. That might be a club record!?
The darn thing finally roosted in JIM RANSTROM's lap and he
claimed the LAST 24-HAND and the $5 prize.
Absent minded me forgot to make arrangements for someone to pick
ARLYN TEED up, since her regular chauffeur, Steve Wennstrom, was out of town.
JULIA BICK was kind enough to run and pick Arlyn up at the last!
THANK YOU JULIA!
(It just wouldn't be the same playing cribbage without Arlyn at the table!)
Thanks also to those who brought extra snacks today!
And thanks to those who helped put things away at the end of the day!
If I've missed any important details of today's events, please let me know.
I hope to see y'all next week!
p.s. holler if you decide you want to be taken off this distribution list!
