Do we need to become a member?
No, non-members are always welcomed to play in our weekly cribbage tournaments. Of course there are advantages to becoming a member. First, we charge no annual dues to become a member of the Chesapeake Bay Area Cribbage Club (CBACC). However, to be eligible to compete for American Cribbage Congress (ACC) and Grass Roots awards and for our Special Club Bonuses, you must be a current ACC and Grass Roots member. If you are not a CBACC member, but belong to another ACC/Grass Roots Cribbage Club, you will be eligible for all Placement awards, i.e., 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and Bonus Prize #1. To be eligible for the other Special Club Bonus prizes you must play in at least 4 of the CBACC tournaments).
What does it cost?
No annual membership dues! Weekly tournament entry fee, $10 per player ($9 to prize fund, $1.00 for cribbage supplies and administration).
The ACC annual membership costs $10 ($12 for married couples) and the Grass Roots membership is only $4.00 ($8 for married). Membership includes a one-year subscription (12 issues) to "Cribbage World" which contains news of what's happening in the cribbage world, announcements of national tournaments, results of Regional, National and Grass Roots competition, and all sorts of information for the avid cribbage player. The ACC is also responsible for setting guidelines and publishing the Official Tournament Rules of cribbage (our bible). The purpose is to promote good sportsmanship and fair play. At CBACC, we like to think of it as, “Playing Cribbage for Fun and Friendly Competition”.
The ACC helps make cribbage an enjoyable experience for all participants by providing:
National Rating System for cribbage tournaments.
Tournament Trail (sanctioned tournament list).
All-American Award (top 10 yearly).
$100 award for the perfect “29 hand”.
Certificates for “28 hand”.
ACC Hall of Fame.
Grass Roots Programs for the local Cribbage Club.
Program for players under 18 years of age.
Be a part of the cribbage movement and establish fraternal friendships with cribbage players everywhere!
