KURT LYSEN and I had PERFECT ATTENDANCE during the 3rd Quarter, and Kurt was rewarded by the club paying his entry fee today. CONGRATULATIONS KURT!
Today was the final "official" weekly tournament of the cribbage season. So next week we will be playing for money, fun and bragging rights, but not for Grass Roots points. Our next "official" tournament will be next September. Thanks for your participation this year! Our club continues to grow and we've all made many new friends as a result. But we always have room for more, so bring along a friend over the summer and introduce them to tournament cribbage!
I haven't forgotten our old friend ARLYN TEED who faithfully attended cribbage until her health prevented her from coming. We miss her quick wit and warm smile indeed!
And keep our cribbage pal JIM RANSTROM in your thoughts as he deals with his health issues. Get well soon Jim! And Jim...if you're up for a game, give us a call and we'll drop by for a brief visit.
For the record:
RAY MIELBRECHT scored the FIRST 24-HAND and was also holding THE CHICKEN at the end of the day.
Nobody scored a 4-of-a-Kind (in the hand, not including the turnup card), so the DIRECTOR'S AWARD will be worth $10 next week.
Nobody held a 6-7-8-A-A, so the Raggedy Julia rolls over to next week.
