Go, nobs, crib. If these terms are familiar and you would like to contribute in the fight against cancer, then you need to sign up for the “Jack Up Cancer” cribbage tournament. The Dunn County Relay for Life is hosting the tournament at Log Jam on March 29 at 3 p.m.
The tournament has 30 spots available for teams of two. Each team must pay a $30 registration fee and will be guaranteed three to five games during the round robin play. At the end of the tournament both members of the winning team will receive a custom cribbage board crafted by Adam Ludwig.
Ludwig is a chair for the Dunn County Relay for Life organization. He has been actively involved in organizing the tournament.
“I did a lot of research on what a good cribbage tournament should look like,” Ludwig said. “The fairest combined with the fastest.”
All skill levels are accepted for the tournament. A basic understanding of the rules of cribbage will be enough to compete.
“It’s a very friendly, simple, community-based cribbage game,” Ludwig said. “Just come, grab a drink, hang out, watch the NCAA tournament and then play some cards on the side.”
If you are interested in playing in the tournament but don’t have a partner, Ludwig suggests registering on the day of the event and finding a partner there.
For the people that want to contribute but don’t want to play in the tournament there will be 50-cent tickets for a raffle as well as a silent auction and the Sunday Log Jam drink specials. Free will donations are also accepted.
“My goal is $1,000 total for the afternoon,” Ludwig said.
Dunn County Relay for Life hosts many events throughout the year to raise money. Ludwig believes events like this tournament allow the community to support those with cancer while becoming closer.
“I love events like this that just bring people together for community support and fun, and hopefully we can raise some money to ultimately put an end to cancer,” Ludwig said.
Sign up for the tournament by contacting Adam Ludwig at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 262-894-1722 or by posting on the Jack Up Cancer Cribbage Tournament event on Facebook. Registration will be open until the start of the tournament.
