The Oakmont Cribbage Club invites people who are interested in playing cribbage to an afternoon celebrating National Cribbage Day on Tuesday, February 12th in the CAC Card Room, beginning at 12:00 Noon.

Cribbage is a fast-paced card game invented in the early 1600s by Sir John Suckling, an English courtier, poet, gamester, gambler and scoundrel. Based on the game Noddy, cribbage was brought to American shores by English settlers, where it became quite popular in the colonies, especially in New England.

National Cribbage Day honors Sir John’s birthday and was made an official holiday in 2017 due to efforts by the American Cribbage Congress.

The Cribbage Club meets on Tuesday from 12:30 – 3:00. Players can come at any time and stay as long as their schedule will allow.

Contact Sandy or Jon with questions. Sandra Stetzel at sandystetzel@gmail.com or 539-0300; Jon Kline at jonkline@pacbell.net or (650) 279-0001.

Happy Birthday Sir John!
