There were 13 zones representing all the Legions in British Columbia in Parksville March 9-11 to compete in the annual Legion Provincial cribbage championships in singles, doubles and team. The winners would qualify to go to the Nationals April 26-28 in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.
The Comox Valley, Comox Branch 160, was represented in singles and a team (four players). The team did relatively well but did not qualify. The singles championship went to, for the third time in as many years, Fred Maniak.
The singles competition was very competitive. Five players were neck and neck throughout the tourney and in the end there was a tie for top spot.
Maniak emerged victorious over a player from the Sunshine Coast Legion Branch 109 and will represent BC/Yukon Command in Nova Scotia.
