RAY MIELBRECHT gets bragging rights for earning the club's 1st GRAND SLAM! Earning 19 Grass Roots points, another club record, Ray obviously finished in FIRST PLACE!
With Ray's impressive showing, it was understandable that ARLYN TEED finished in SECOND PLACE!
And ROBIN KING was back in the money today finishing in THIRD PLACE!
Four players earned Grass Roots points today....Ray, Arlyn, Robin, and myself.
You had a sense that Ray Mielbrecht was going to be having a good day when early in the day he scored the FIRST 24-HAND, and THE CHICKEN! Unfortunately, CINDY GRENVILLE wrestled THE CHICKEN away from Ray and ended the day with it in her hands (actually she was hiding it under her blouse.)
Nobody claimed the DIRECTOR'S AWARD (4-of-a-KIND), so that prize doubles to $10 next week.
And that elusive RAGGEDY JULIA (6-7-8-A-A) remains unclaimed, and with today's participants, that pot now stands at $39!
We will continue to play under the same format through the end of May. The only difference will be.....the remaining games will be "unofficial", since we have now completed 36 cribbage tournaments...the maximum "official" games allowed in Grass Roots play.
