We welcomed back Michael DeBlasi today. Michael is an excellent cribbage player (as evidenced below), and he's always welcome to join us. (Below Michael and Ruth square off)
JIM RANSTROM topped the chart once again with an impressive scorecard 16/7/79
And as you can from the chart, Steve Wennstrom and I both earned Grass Roots points as well. (Below Steve and Robin compete)
Ruth Adams was the first to grab THE CHICKEN (and $5), but she didn't hold it for long. Jim held it briefly, passing it on to Robin, who did a pass back to Jim. But RAY MIELBRECHT was the last person holding THE CHICKEN, so he received THE CHICKEN POT today, worth $5.
Speaking of Ruth, today Ruth was dealt a 4-5-5-5-5-6. She smartly tossed the 4-6, but when a NINE was turned up fate robbed her of that elusive 28-hand, the second highest cribbage hand possible.
Nine players participated in today's RAGGEDY JULIA. The RAGGEDY JULIA went to Roy Bumgarner today. He was the only person to score a 6-7-8-A-A, so he claimed the entire pot of $17. (Roy is the guy wearing the hat)
The DIRECTOR'S AWARD was a 1-2-3-4-5, and it did get claimed, so next week's pot will be worth $5.
