I Tax and Insurance Sorce$ Three time cribbage winner blue V. of california Blue Shlold ol Calllm  & Health Insurance Company Mike Taborski Publisher Steve Zeigler thinks he proved just how good a crib- bage player he is by winning the tloliday Cribbage Classic doubles tournament for the third consecutive year, elimi- nating the idea bantered about that he is "just lucky when it comes to playing cards," after winning his sec- ond consecutive title last year. Truth be known, credit for his success each year goes to the talented partners he's had each time -- selected through the luck of random pairings.

Mon-Tue-Thur 8am-5pm 283-2291 . .  20 Crescent St., Quincy turn to carry Zeigler to the championship as the two best- ed a field of 24 players. But at least this year, crib partners Jim Hedin and Norm McQuarry took the title down to the wire as both teams posted just one loss each in nine games played. However, when it came down to determining the win- ners using the tiebreaker for- mula, Zeigler and Hinton had the slight edge in total points over Hedin and McQuarry. The winners pocketed $95 each and the runners-up won back their $20 entry fee. On the losing end, Chuck Leonhardt and Dana Green were in a class all to them- selves winning a pitiful two games all afternoon. For that very ignominious effort, the two losers get the unwelcomed task of organiz- ing next year's tournament. The Wednesday, Dec. 28, tournament was held at Main Street Sports Bar with a steak sandwich lunch prepared by last year's losers: Cobey Brown and Jon Kennedy. This tournament is rich with history and tradition and, as you might have guessed, is mostly about the bragging rights. Two players, Andy Anderson and Hedin, who have played in every con- test since its inception and are still pegging away, believe this annual event began near- ly 50 years ago.
