December the 9th
In the revelry of our gathering, a jubilant assembly of 30 souls, Amy and I included, convened to partake in the spirited pursuit of Our Card Game. In addition, 16 esteemed guests graced the open house exclusively, where copious victuals and lively discourse abounded.
Regrettably, the commencement of the card party faced a tempestuous outset. A trio or quartet of unsuspecting souls found themselves omitted from the initial seating, courtesy of errors inscribed upon Dan’s meticulous spreadsheet. As fate would have it, a further bewilderment ensued when Justin was erroneously transcribed as Jason, adding an extra layer of perplexity.
Following round 2, a lamentable breakdown in communication ensued, leading Hannah and Karen to inadvertently engage in an additional hand each. In an equitable gesture, they were accorded the average points gleaned from the two hands played during the disordered rounds.
The climax of the evening unfolded in a Sudden Death confrontation, wherein Paul emerged triumphant. After an enthralling tie with Dan and the inclusion of Arthur and Luis to complete the assembly, Paul secured his fifth victory in this esteemed pursuit of leisure.
Open House Only Guests
Noteworthy among our esteemed non-playing guests were Patty & Todd Hagan, Christi & Randy Deeter, Karen Adams, Erin & Matt Colburn & Emmalyn & Everett, Melissa & Ethan Dole, David Ponder, Jenny & Troy Rhoadarmer, Dana & Blake Curton.
