Kim Lund and Billie Forest moved up to second place with 70.5 games. Dave Mahan and Terry Yung have dropped down to third place with 69 games. This apparently was the day for 24-hands because there were five of them. The skilled peggers were Anna Mae Giannotti, Michelle Vargas, Randy Meeks and Cathy Maxey. There are only four names listed because Anna Mae had two of these great hands! Cathy gets credit for a 24-hand even though Kara Wallace, her substitute, was dealt it. Fourteen two-person teams are playing in the cribbage league. Play alternates each week between the Mt. Lassen Club in Chester and the Double G Iron Horse Saloon in Westwood for 13 consecutive Saturdays. The league play for March 15 will be in Westwood; play will return to Chester on March 22. For more information about the league play or if you would like to volunteer to be a substitute, call Kathy Hassell at 258-3612. Each Saturday each team plays three games against each of four different teams. The winner of each game is awarded one point, and one point goes to the team that earns the most positive spread points for the three games. Therefore, each three-game set is worth four points (games). If the game point to be awarded to the team with the most spread points ends in a tie, each team is given one-half point. A reminder to all! The Saturday league is in addition to the first Wednesday of the month singles cribbage tournament at the Mt. Lassen Club in Chegter. The next first Wednesday of the month cribbage singles tournament will be held Wednesday, April 2. Play starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. For more information about the first Wednesday night of the month cribbage singles tournament call Terry Yung at 259-3007. Attendance low, spirits high for Chester crib tournament Terry Yung Special to Feather Publishing . Talk about dedicated cribbage players. Only four people were able to make itto March's first Wednesday singles tournament in Chester. Since there were only four of them Beth Meder, Dave Mahan, Anna Mae Giannotti and Jim Engelhardt-- they decided to play each other only twice and make an early night of it. They further decided, before play began, that the top two would play each other one game for winner take all. The top two were Beth and Jim. They played a fierce game with Jim coming out on top as the official winner. Dave was the only one to get a 24-hand. He would have counted a second 24-hand while he was on Fourth Street in one game except his opponent went out before he could count it. Ow! Anna Mae and Dave tied for the most 19-hands. They cut cards and Dave won the cut. A special thanks to Jim Engelhardt for taking notes so this article could be written. Also many thanks from all of us to Dave Mahan for providing the sphe for the monthly tournaments. Anyone wanting to play singles cribbage is welcome to come. We have a good time while playing eight games (usually) against eight different opponents. Play starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. at the Mt. Lassen Club in Chester on the first Wednesday of every month. For more information call Terry Yung at 259-3007. m I" "- 6" Comuni Sstaiaabili-ty Awards I I wish to nominate for the 2014 Community I Sustainability Awards.
