We started the day with a quick review of some of the rules (and penalties) when playing in a tournament.
When we got down to the business at hand, THE CHICKEN was quickly grabbed by RUTH ADAMS! Sadly, she let it slip out of her hands and it landed in Jim Ranstrom's hands, but he fumbled it and it ended the day in Ruth's hands once again.
The DIRECTOR'S AWARD (a four of a kind) was also claimed early, by JULIA BICK!
JIM RANSTROM was his usual generous self and brought the Fritos for us to munch on. To show my gratitude, I put a stop to his grand slam attempt in the sixth game (after he had five straight wins), which put the rest of his cribbage score card on the skids. THANKS JIM! :-o
Six players particpated in today's RAGGEDY JULIA (6-7-8-A-A), but nobody scored one, so the pot starts with six bucks next week.
RAY MIELBRECHT thoughtfully brought up a GREAT idea today! He took up a collection to buy flowers for our friend Arlyn, who is still working to get stronger so she can return to the cribbage table! THANKS RAY! (Anyone interested in contributing towards the flowers should contact Ray.)
CONGRATULATIONS to CINDY GRENVILLE for her Second Place finish! (Since we only had eight players today, the cash payouts only went to 1st and 2nd place!)
Next Saturday will be our 6th tournament of the 3rd quarter, which will take us to mid-quarter.
