We started the day with ELEVEN players turning out for today's tournament, but that darned ROBIN KING slipped past us before we could hogtie her to the table, so only TEN players were present for today's tournament.
That elusive DIRECTOR'S AWARD ($20) was claimed today when CINDY GRENVILLE got the turn-up she needed for the 2-4-6-8-10 hand.
HARLEY MIEDEMA was the first to get a 24-hand, so he grabbed THE CHICKEN (and $5), only to lose it to KURT LYSEN. Ruth wrestled THE CHICKEN away from Kurt, but he managed to wrestle it back from her and kept ahold of it for the remainder of the day.
Nobody held a 6-7-8-A-A, so the Raggedy Julia starts out with $26 next week.
It took SEVEN wins today, and TWO skunks, to make FIRST PLACE today, which was accomplished by KATHARINE GOLDING.
HARLEY MIEDEMA also won seven games (but he didn't skunk any of us) and that secured him SECOND PLACE.
JULIA BICK continues her winning streak and finished in THIRD PLACE today.
Be sure to check out the current standings for the SECOND QUARTER! We've only played three tournaments so far, but it won't be easy to overtake the top three on the list!
Our THANKS to CINDY GRENVILLE and the Vashon Community Care Center for hosting our group for the past two weeks! Next week we return to the VASHON EAGLES. Same time: 1:00 P.M.
THANKS also to Cindy for the yummy Christmas cookies she shared with us today!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to ALL of you!!
Oh...I forgot to mention....a couple players have a conflict on January 9th. To accommodate them, I'd like to propose that we play on Sunday, January 10th instead. But if anyone has a conflict on that date, we will just go ahead and play on our regularly scheduled day. So please let me know if that Sunday won't work for you!
