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 16, 2013

The Holiday party was a blast!  We had all but four of our members present plus four visitors from other clubs and spouses of members.  See who was there here.  Higher resolution photos are available from Keith; just ask!

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.


In Memoriam

On December 19th 2011, as we gathered for our weekly tournament, we were saddened to learn of the sudden, unexpected passing of club founder and president, Gordon Brown.
Rest in Peace, Gordie. We will all miss you.

On December 26th 2012, our Webmaster and statistician, Jerry Wilcox, succumbed to months of illness.
We will miss you greatly, Jerry.
