The Vashon Community Care Center was kind enough to host us today so that Arlyn could play cribbage with us.
It took SIX WINS and a SKUNK to get into the money today (and even that wasn't enough in at least one case.) We had FOUR players that finished the day with SIX WINS and a SKUNK, each earning 13 Grass Roots Points.
I'd have to say that ROBIN KING made the difference in today's results, even though she wasn't in that group mentioned above. Robin actually missed her Grass Roots Points by just one point. She got SKUNKED....royally (by a spread of 67 points, a new CLUB RECORD)...by that rascal JIM RAMSTROM, and those spread points pushed Jim into FIRST PLACE.
SECOND PLACE went to JULIA BICK!
THIRD PLACE was decided by spread points. HARLEY MIEDEMA aced RAY MIELBRECHT out by a difference of FIVE (5) spread points. Again, Robin King was the spoiler in this case. Robin had skunked poor Ray by 41 points, which dragged Ray's total spread points down below Harley's.
CINDY GRENVILLE scored the one and ONLY 24-hand, so she went home with the money for both FIRST 24-HAND and THE CHICKEN pot!
Nobody held a 2-4-6-8-10, so the DIRECTOR'S AWARD climbs to $20 next week!
And nobody held a 6-7-8-A-A, so the RAGGEDY JULIA starts out next week with $17.
Sometimes don't you wish you were nobody?
Next week we will return to the Community Care Center. Same start time: 1:00 o'clock.
A total of 12 players were entered for this December 12, 2009 tournament
p.s. I received a nice note from our newest club member Chris Starr. Right after Chris joined the club he got a job which conflicts with our Saturday tournaments. But he indicated that he will still be able to join us from time to time.
