GVMC Remembrance Day Crib Tournament
The GVMC's Remembrance Day Crib Tournament will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018 at the GVMC Clubhouse at #306-192nd St. Surrey B.C. Sign up and coffee will be from 10:30am - 11:00am with the games starting at 11:02am after two minutes silence to honour our veterans. The event is generally over by 4:00pm. Signup is $20.00 which includes snacks, a meal and cash prizes. All are welcome. You don't have to be a Club member to participate. Just a beginner - come on out and learn - we don't play cut throat crib. Everyone is more than happy to help new players. It's great fun - lots of laughs - and a chance to socialize off the bikes. Friends and family are welcome as well.
As we only have room for a maximum of 32 playersplease let us know if you are planning on attending by contacting us through the Contact Us on the left so that we can put your name on the list and count noses for food. Be sure to give us a phone number so that we can contact you if there are any changes to the event or if our quota is filled.

The 2018 Remembrance Crib Tourney was held Nov 11 2018. Twenty-four people signed up and played for fun and prizes. Start up coffee and buns were available until 11 o’clock when two minutes of silence were held in memory of service members lost or injured in previous wars.
Games commenced with food, laughs, camaraderie and good cribbage. Snacks were available all day with a break mid play for more substantial food. At end of day's play a stew dinner with dessert was put out while scores were tallied.
