CRIBBAGE                                                               Estelle Thornson

It has been a LONG TIME. But we are now glad to report, that Thursday evening cribbage is able to return to the ANAF. Of course, if things change ….. who knows. BUT the plan is to restart play on Thursday, December 9, 2021. So far the rules are …. All players must show ID and masks are only worn when moving, not while playing. Physical distancing is not required. No sanitation will take place during the evening but hand sanitizers will be available in the room. At this time, the plan is to just resume play as it was, however, we may have some discussions on some possible changes. Of course, everything is dependent on numbers, Some possible changes to think about – to start games at 7:00 instead of 7:30 - Another suggestion is to play two games against the same opponent to reduce movement. In that case we may play 8 games (4 moves) as the play might go somewhat faster and with an earlier start,,,, just might work. But for December 9, the start time will be 7:30…. Again unless health rules change and with daily numbers going up, it is a possibility.

Until then, stay healthy, practice up on your card skills, dust off the cribbage board, invite a friend, talk to your partner and hope for the best.
The bigger the crowd the larger the pots.

If you don't have a partner come on out anyway as we usually can pair you up.
