Welcome to the Griffiths Seniors Centre's Cribbage Club.



Facilitator- Malcolm Carvell.


Come and join us for a fun evening playing Cribbage on
Monday Evenings at 7:00 to 9pm



Cribbage 2018 Roundup
2018 was an enjoyable year for Cribbage Members and played throughout the year with a total of 48 evenings of Cribbage being played and an average of between 13 and 16 players per evening.

As per normal, coffee and biscuits (cookies) were provided and often ladies bought in home baked cookies/cakes (delicious & mouth-watering stuff).

There was no Christmas Party to complete the years play but 2019 was “kicked-off” with a party at Malcolm’s (facilitator) house where Cribbage continued along with drinks, beverages and hot/cold “finger food” that was served by the beautiful, hard working Mrs. C., otherwise known as Jeanette.

The evening concluded with thanks to all that supported the group followed by presentations of fun certificates awarded to the following re their achievements (or lack of it) throughout 2018..

Most 1st place wins (6 each). Bev. Fleury and Val. Sheridan
Most 2nd place wins (6) Ben Potter
Most 3rd place wins (8) Ben Potter
Biggest loser (Booby prize 6) Bev. Tingstad (must try harder)
Most =24 hands (6) Val. Sheridan (lucky lady)

It’s all in good fun so come and join us for another year of Cribbage and help make it a successful and enjoyable 2019. Monday evenings, 7pm to 9pm (19:00 to 21:00)

Enjoying a game of Cribbage at the "Christmas Special"

Cribbage Club and games were enjoyed throughout the year with an average attendance of 12-16 Cribbage players per evening. Play continued all summer which resulted in a total of 45 game evenings excluding the “Christmas Special” which was to end the years play. Without exception all Cribbage players enjoyed the evenings as not just for the playing of Cribbage but for the social aspect of meeting old friends and making new acquaintances. Whilst winning Cribbage games is the intent of all players having fun and enjoying a good joke is paramount, so come prepared for a few “old chestnuts” and tears of laughter (or groans).
On every Cribbage evening, coffee and biscuits (cookies to the un-initiated) were provided and often home baked cakes and/or cookies were brought in by some of the member ladies (yummy).



Enjoying a game of Cribbage at the "Christmas Special"


As indicated above, the year was rounded off with a “Christmas Special” at Malcolm’s place. A Rubber of Cribbage (short games) were played after which hot/cold food and drinks were served by his ever patient and understanding wife (bless her little cotton socks!) and then everyone went home to beddy byes.
2018 Cribbage evenings begin on the 8th January and will hopefully continue throughout the year only breaking for some of the major holidays such as Easter weekend.
Looking forward to socialising with the old members and hopefully ,some new. So everybody coerce their friends, neighbours out of that comfy armchair and away from the TV to join in the fun.
