The Big Valley Inn crib players held their season finale last Sunday, with a good turnout of 14 players.
Welcome back to Len Shaw, after his accident.
First prize went to Margaret Levesque, second prize went to Lawrence Wilkie and Stan Nattestad won third. Ernie Petrussa took the booby, while Wilkie won the regular draw and Nattestad won the 50/50.
End-of-season prizes were awarded. Most skunks went to Caroline Pound, second to Trudy Spence and third to Petrussa. Perfect attendance for all 27 games of the season went to Joanne Murphy. All players went home with prizes.
Thanks to Shaw for our crib boards and to John Rinehart for the box of new playing cards to replace the old, worn ones. Special thanks to Pat, Tomassina and the staff of the Big Valley Inn for all their hard work throughout the season and especially for the suppers they provided. Pat and Tomassina presented Margaret Levesque and Trudy Spence with gift certificates for all their hard work during the season.
Levesque thanks Spence and Dorothy Annabel for their help throughout the season while she was away, and Gladys Groat for the bookkeeping briefcase. Levesque announced she would retire from keeping the crib scores and asked that everyone support Spence and Annabel, who will continue the tradition.
Many thanks to Levesque for all her hard work during the past seasons, organizing the weekly events, keeping track of scores and awarding prizes each week.
Big Valley crib tournaments are tentatively scheduled to resume on Oct. 6. Watch for the announcements. Remember that everyone is welcome.
