We were honored today with a visit by cribbage legend RAS RASMUSSEN of Chehalis, WA. Ras left behind bragging rights to Harley Miedema, Ray Mielbrecht, Rick Westerman, Dave McCoy, and myself. Cindy lost to Ras by a measley 4 points.
Ras was joined by two other off-island players, JEFF OLSON of Puyallup and RICK WESTERMAN of Wenatchee.. Rick, of course, is no stranger to our club. He makes a pilgrimage to Vashon about once a year.
Also joining us from off-island was JIM ROSEVEARE of Colorado. Jim has made our club his second home, and he is always welcome!
We had FOURTEEN players at the cribbage table today.
Before the tournament started, we first handed out awards for THIRD QUARTER and Year End.
For the record, in UNOFFICIAL PLAY:
Ray Mielbrecht scored the FIRST 24-HAND.
Jim Roseveare ended the day holding THE CHICKEN.
Yours truly scored a 6-7-8-A-A and took the RAGGEDY JULIA pot.
Nobody could muster up a five-card flush run, so the DIRECTOR'S AWARD will be worth $20 next week.
Ruth Adams got to clean out the SKUNK POT, but Steve Wennstrom, Jeff Olson, and I all fought for it right down to our final game!
And true to form, our off-island guests went home with most of the prize money: We do hope you'll join us again real soon! (See the PHOTOS page for more pics from today)
