EIGHT! Count them! 8 SKUNKS occurred today!
(More on that later.)
CINDY GRENVILLE was the first one to score a 24-hand.
She was quick to grab THE CHICKEN and the $5 that goes with that honor!
Karen Keil briefly held THE CHICKEN mid way thru the tournament,
but your's truly snatched it from her right away
and held it for the remainder of the day.
Today's DIRECTOR'S AWARD, chosen by Julia Bick, went to ARLYN TEED.
Arlyn's FOUR-OF-A-KIND earned her a quick $20!
That prize will return to $5 next week.
We'll let Arlyn pick the hand for next week's prize!
CONGRATULATIONS to KAREN KEIL!
Karen clawed her way to the top of today's heap
with an impressive scorecard: 16 Game Points, 7 Wins, and 134 Net Spread Points.
Karen did get skunked once herself, but she also skunked two opponents.
The most impressive skunk was dealt by Steve Wennstrom to RAY MIELBRECHT!
Ray got skunked by SIXTY-TWO (62) points!
That's a new CLUB RECORD, and certainly qualifies for a $5 prize!
(See me next week for your prize money Ray)
Now ROBIN KING did herself proud today as well.
(I should note that she also skunked Ray in their final game today.)
But prior to that, Robin had a bad BAD string of luck
and got skunked...not once....not twice....but THREE times IN A ROW!
And she still said THANK YOU...with a smile on her face...when she left.
She is a great sport!
So ROBIN gets the SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD this week (worth $5)
(See me next week for your winnings Robin!)
STEVE WENNSTROM again tied for 2nd place in Game Points,
but he didn't win as many games as I did,
so he finished in THIRD PLACE today.
The good news is...we had NINE players today, so he does qualify for a cash prize.
(See me next week to collect that Steve)
A lively group today!! Thanks for the fun!
