FALLBROOK – Great Fallbrook weather greeted 78 cribbage players on March 2 at the 12th annual Avocado Cribbage Tournament held at the Fallbrook Senior Center.

The finals of the main tournament had the same two players as last year’s tournament - Cy Madrone of Santa Barbara and Arlene Shaw of Tustin. Again, Madrone won the tournament, his third victory in the 12 matches.

Fallbrook avocados were plentiful again this year as a result of donations from local packing companies Calavo Growers and Del Rey Packing. Each player took home a bag of avocados with handouts from the California Avocado Commission. More avocados waited for the top 16 qualifiers as well as the highest non-qualifier and the lowest score in the main. The top four in the consolation also received avocados.

Fallbrook resident Mike Duffy was knocked out of the tournament in the semi-finals. Bill McGinness, Oceanside took second place in the consolation match

The first and second place and high qualifier in the main and the winner of the consolation were awarded unique avocado trophies, which were created out of avocado wood by local woodworker Bob Jordan.
