At our Saturday, June 22, tournament we welcomed two visitors, Ron Morgan, a fairly regular visitor from the Reno grassroots club, and Slim Person visiting from southern Washington.
Lee Davis from Quincy had another outstanding day capturing the first place honors with a whopping 17 game points earned in her eight wins, losing only one game and then skunking her opponent in the last game of the day.
Steve Frank from Plumas Pines took second with a nice 15/6 scorecard. Those extra game points came by virtue of three skunks — remember, you get 2 points for a win and 3 for a skunk, which is leaving your opponent 61 holes away from the finish line. There are 120 holes to be pegged in a complete game.
Darlene Pekovich from Graeagle came in third with an 11/5 scorecard and Eddie Garrish from Quincy took fourth with a 10/5 finish.
There were two other 10/5 cards, but Eddie won the tiebreaker with the best point spread.
There were four 24-hands posted by Slim, Janet Miller from Cromberg, Clyde Terry from Plumas Pines and Morgan, but Ron had the last one to win the 24-Hand Pot.
There were two 4-of-a-kind hands posted by Keith Nelson from Crescent Mills and Dave Boynton from Quincy, who won the 4-of-a-kind pot with the high cut card.
As you might recall, I mentioned some time back that we had a dozen cribbage boards donated to the Graeagle Peggers from the VFW Lodge 3758 in Portola. We are selling the boards and asking for at least a $20 donation, which will be donated back to the Lodge. The boards are brand new Hoyle Master Continuous Track. Each comes with a set of six wooden pegs. Anyone interested in purchasing a board should contact me (Doug Rodrigues) on my cell at 249-1099. A donation of more than $20 would certainly be appreciated and can be put to good use by the VFW Lodge.
The Graeagle Peggers Grassroots Cribbage Club meets at Gumba’s Pizza in Blairsden every Saturday for a 9-game tournament. Check-in is at 10:45 a.m. and play begins at 11 a.m.We are in their summer session so these contests are not sanctioned by the American Cribbage Congress. But, it is a great time to join the group and learn more about the great game of cribbage.
For more information or questions, contact me, Doug Rodrigues, the club’s director at 836-4254. Players of all skill levels are welcome!
