Cribbage at the ACC Grand National

-- Submitted by cajrn57
My husband and I attended the 26th Annual ACC Grand National Cribbage Tournament the weekend of September 28, in Portland, Maine.  (ACC is American Cribbage Congress)  WOW!!!   We were in a room playing cribbage with 454 players from all around the country. We have been a members of ACC for 2 years but had never attended any of their tournaments, so it was a rather intimidating experience to go to their Grand National for my first time!
I found a great group there that were pretty patient (for the most part) with a slow counter like me. Lots of people came from Oregon (they flew Portland to Portland!!), California, Wisconson, and they stayed the whole week and made a vacation out of it. Lucky for them we had unseasonably warm, sometimes hot, weather for late September in New England!
I really didn't expect to do well, playing the top performers! (and I didn't) I haven't played enough live the past few years and I missed a lot of points. On Friday, we eased into our first experience by playing doubles and that was fun. I may go to a regular tournament next Sunday in New Hampshire!
I DID meet the Eliter who first told me about the ACC: Wylde_in_Maine.  If there were any others, I don't know about them!!  I know pohlmans3 is also very active in the ACC.  I urge people to check this club out at the link listed.  It's a great way to travel around and meet fellow card players.  I bet there is a "Grass Roots" club in your area!
Good Luck and Happy Cribbing - and don't forget to tell everyone about this great online league you belong to!  If people like to play live tourneys, the odds are they might be interested in an online league so spread the word.
