Results are now final, but you need to go to our old website to see the numbers
Today we welcomed Jim Roseveare back to our club. Jim lives in Colorado, but visits the Seattle area every now and then, and he makes it a point to come over to Vashon to put in a little cribbage time with us. We all enjoyed his company today. Hurry back Jim!
Today we added another new club member...Dave McCoy. Dave has been in the money in his first two tournaments. And today he finished in SECOND PLACE and earned his first Grass Roots Points. WELCOME Dave...and good luck in future tournaments!
You didn’t have to earn Grass Roots Points today to be in the money. RUTH ADAMS finished in THIRD PLACE today with 10 game points.
SIX players, including Ruth, had TEN game points today. The others included ROY BUMGARNER, RAY MIELBRECHT JIM RANSTROM, STEVE WENNSTROM and HARLEY MIEDEMA. So the second deciding factor is GAMES WON.
Steve and Harley only won 4 games, so they were eliminated.
Jim, Roy, Ray and Ruth each won FIVE of their games, so NET SPREAD POINTS was the next determining factor.
Roy had five net spread points...two less than Ray. Not enough for either of them.
Jim had 29 net spread points, but Ruth out-gunned him...ending the day with 32 net spread points..and THIRD PLACE! (Ruth - I’ll make sure you collect your winnings from Jim)
Jim Ranstrom can’t feel too sorry for himself. He held the FIRST 24-HAND (worth $5) AND held the first (of several) crib flush (worth $10).
KATHARINE GOLDING ended the day holding THE CHICKEN! (see me next week for your winnings Katharine)
Nobody held a 6-7-8-A-A, so the RAGGEDY JULIA pot rolls over to next week.
And finally, today I joined the esteemed company of RAY MIELBRECHT when I earned a GRAND SLAM. Ray was the only club member to hold that honor....until today!
