Open Cribbage Tournament, Royal Canadian Legion - Branch 31 Mount Dennis, Toronto, ON

Gord and I enjoy playing cribbage.  The Royal Canadian Legion - Branch 31 Mount Dennis has cribbage tournaments about every three months.  We went to the four they held last year.

The rules, crib board and cards are on every table.

There were 54 teams today (27 tables).

After each game, you bring your score sheet to the front, where these ladies manually tabulate and keep track of all the results.

Gord and I were team #14.  We played 10 games and were a "moving team" (we moved from table to table for all ten games).  Last year in the first three tournaments we won four games/lost six each time.  In the last tournament, we won two games/lost ten!  Today we won three games/lost seven.  It's fun to play but frustrating when you don't get the cards.

Here were the prizes ... needless to say, we didn't come close to winning any.  We left after we finished out tenth game and didn't stick around to see the final tally.

There were two 50/50 draws, each about $250.  We didn't win either of those.  Amazingly the same woman won both!

Though we didn't win any prizes, we had fun.  We'll be back for the next one in April!
