The historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford will host its 7th annual cribbage tournament on Sunday, March 6. The public is invited to take a break from cabin fever with stimulating conversation and a classic card game.
Guests are invited to come as a team or as individuals. Solo players will be paired up with a partner on the afternoon of the tournament. Registration is at 1:00 pm and play begins at 1:30 pm. The entry fee is $30 per team or $20 per person, and a cash prize of $50 will be awarded to the tournament champion. Players are also asked to bring some food to share and the beverage of your choice. Paper goods and utensils will be provided.
All skill ranges are welcome, from beginner to seasoned expert. For those who would like to learn the game or hone their skills for the tournament, a cribbage warm-up event will be held on Saturday, February 27 from 1 to 5 pm. There is no entry fee for the warm-up event and no score will be kept – not officially, at least.
The cribbage tournament is a great opportunity to show support for the Colonel Paul Wentworth House, meet new people and have a fun time. Seating is limited so reserve your spot by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and providing your name and the number in your party. Or register by calling Mike at 603-817-4545 or John at 207-475-6150.
