New to you perhaps – but Cribbage has history
Just as things were starting to get back to normal last year Terry Bartholomew suggested we launch a regular monthly Moleside session of Cribbage.
The group now has 10 signed up as ‘interested’ and things are starting to move – after an inevitable hiatus thanks to the emergence of the new variant of Covid.
Sessions are held monthly – usually on the second Wednesday – and the plan is to visit different players’ houses through the year.
Even in a heatwave – July’s fearsomely high temperatures may have proved too much for some of us but John Brice, James Moore and Terry Bartholomew played at Heathside – and note was taken that our club chairman’s mental arithmetic seems to be benefitting from keeping company with such fast thinking club colleagues. As well as the obvious enjoyment to be had from playing, the sort of extra demand on our brains that it calls for is an asset that should interest us all in a retirement club.
It may be a while since you played Cribbage – or perhaps you’re an entirely new player – but Moleside members who are familiar with the game will always welcome more players. All the regulars have said they’ll be very willing to share some of their dastardly secrets with anyone interested in giving it a go. And we’re talking about the sort of secrets that have made Cribbage an intriguing challenge for card players for more than 300 years.
Do let Terry know if you’d like to put your name down to join the group – and, if you’d welcome a little preparatory homework, as a good place to start he suggests a visit to –
