We welcomed another off-island visitor, Jim Roseveare, today. Jim now holds our club record for the player visiting from the farthest distance (Colorado). He plays an excellent game of cribbage and has a great personality. Thanks for visiting Jim! You're always welcome to join us whenever you're in the vicinity!
Jim is such a nice guy... he even let Ruth Adams win her 8th game, after her seven (7) consecutive losses. Ruth was SO close to earning her second "string-of-pearls". Oh well. You lose some....and you win some!
THIRD PLACE FINISHER MISSING! Robin King dissappeared before accepting today's HUGE 3rd place trophy and winnings! (See me next week for your winnings Robin.)
Jim Ranstrom game me a run for my money and finished in SECOND PLACE!
Ray Mielbrecht was the first one to grab THE CHICKEN today, but lost it to Julia Bick... up until the last game, and she then surrendered it back to Ray. So Ray got the 1st AND Last 24-hand today!
Nobody claimed the DIRECTOR'S AWARD, so that prize climbs to $10 next week. We're looking for that elusive CRIB FLUSH once again.
And nobody claimed the RAGGEDY JULIA (6-7-8-A-A), so that pot will start out with $9 next week.
For the record, Julia Bick's 55 point loss to Jim Roseveare was not a club record. You must lose by more than 62 points to earn that honor.
Several close games today. Most notable were: Our visitor Jim Roseveare left Steve Wennstrom in the stink hole; Jim Ranstrom and Ray Mielbrecht both left Arlyn Teen in the stink hole; and Arlyn Teed left Ruth Adams in the stink hole. All made for some very exciting cribbage!
