Clearwater Legion Branch #259 hosted the B.C. and Yukon Command’s cribbage championships the weekend before last, reports Charlotte Cederholm, one of the organizers.

A total of 91 players from 13 zones all over the province and territory took part.

Best local result and winners of the team event were Carol Clark, Larry Holland, Terry Vaughn and Glen Clark of Barriere.

Leroy Wagar and Darwin Schmidt of Merritt won the doubles event.

Top singles player at the tournament was Fred Maniuk of North Central Vancouver Island Zone.

The winners all qualified to participate in the Dominion championships, to be held in Innisfail, Alberta, in mid-April.

This was the first time Clearwater hosted the provincial crib championships, Cederholm said.

The local branch hosted provincial darts about seven or eight years ago.

 

Play for the crib championships began at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Mar. 10 and ended at about 3 p.m. on Sunday, Mar. 11.
