August 19, 2014

Last night was a great celebration of Jack P. Stowe's Silver Award for reaching 2,500 Grass Roots points in scheduled tournament play.  Ellie accepted the award on Jack's behalf as he is quite ill at home.  

Elaine Lambert received her award for the 28 hand she had in play August 11th.

Box Car had 24 players that included two new members, Howard Mann and Rick Salerno, who also brought his wife, Christy, to play.  Only four players had "qualifying cards" (12 or more game points) yet two had eleven and a whopping seven had ten cards.  Here's the good stuff.

REMINDER: No play on Labor Day, September 1, 2014.

August 16, 2014

Monday the 11th saw 16 competitors.  Of those 16, seven had qualifying cards!  And of those, Tom Chew plugged away at a Grand Slam and got foiled in game nine by Jack Throne.  A lot of fun!  Tom still had high card, but it wasn't as "glorious" as a slam would have been, for sure. AND... Elaine Lambert had a 28 hand!  Lookie here.  See what the Best 6 of 10 for the summer looks like and all of our other weekly scores.

Tonight's tournament will be at The Station Restaurant, 1100 Orlando Ave., Roseville 95661. 

The ACC site has been down since January 2, 2014 and still is inoperable.  We have taken the results of the December 30, 2013 and January 6, 2014 tournaments and included them in the results page.  Batting average will be updated once the ACC site is functioning.

January 4, 2014

The results for last Monday's play won't be posted until the server at the American Cribbage Congress (ACC) is repaired.  It was hoped that it would be up by today, but no such luck.  Stay tuned for results and come Monday (to The Old Spaghetti Factory) to create your own results!

December 30, 2013

So sorry for the delay!  Tonight will be the last night at Denny's for our regular Monday night tournaments.  Next week, January 6th of 2014 we will be at The Old Spaghetti Factory, 721 Sunrise Ave - upstairs to the back side towards the street side of the level.  Elevator or stairs, it's all good!

Results for Monday 12/16 can be seen here.

December 12, 2013

A second week with 20 players.  A couple of folks from River City Peggers tried to score the pots but they missed the mark!  Box Car Peggers are becoming more focused and play a tight game.  It is a game, but it's like any other game.  Winning matters!  Take a look here to see how it went.

December 3, 2013

We ended on time and had some real good laughter tonight.  It's feeling like it is going to be a great new year!  Here's what happened on Monday night.
