Next Rama trip, January 15
It’s that time of year, time to present our prizes to those card players having the highest scores, the most moonshots and the most lone hands.
Our most popular game of cards is bid euchre, played Monday afternoons and Friday nights. Highest count achieved during any eight game session was 370, made by Fred Kaunsinger, who received $50.
Most moonshots made during an eight game session was three, shared by Bob Daigle, who did this three times; and Al Robbins, Hugh Green and Helen Crawford, who each did it once.
In euchre, played on Friday afternoons, the highest count made was 91, made by Ed Morden, to give him $50. The most lone hands made during our Friday games was eight, made by Stew Looby, Sue Major and Helen Crawford.
In cribbage, there were two players who each had perfect counts of 968, to split the $25 prize – Ed Morden and Pat Rankin.
In the 500 game, the $25 winner was Stew Looby, having the highest count of the year.
Congratulations to all of the winners and now we are off to start another year of our different card games. First game of the New Year was cribbage, playing on Thursday afternoon, with Lizzie West and Joen Huff being our first winners.
Friday afternoon was our first euchre game of the New Year, with very surprising results. Ida Cameron had high count of 85 and she made seven lone hands, so she went right to the winner’s board and will probably hold that position for quite a while. Bev English came second, with 79. Sue Major ended up with the Sucker Award.
First game of bid euchre was Friday night, with Rita Nelson getting a nice high score of 355, to put her on the winner’s board. Hans Haring was second, with 340. Joen Huff got the first moonshot made in 2013, in the fist game.
Memberships are now due to become members of the Drop-In.
