Twin Cities Bo Diddley Classic Cribbage Tournament


John "Bo Diddley" Forsythe '74 is back for a 2nd year of bringing the longtime LaPlayette tradition to Minneapolis.

After quickly selling out all 32 teams last year, the decision was made to open the cribbage tournament to 64 teams of two for this year. We anticipate another sellout, so get your team together early and prepare for a fun and entertaining day with fellow Johnnies and friends.

The $50 per team buy-in will be handled at the start of the tournament. $10 of the buy-in covers Bo Diddley's sub sandwiches, chips, and cookies for all players. The remaining $40 will be redistributed in cash and prizes to the top teams.You can reserve your team's spot by clicking "Register for Event" above.

Please note that although most teams will conclude play by 5 p.m., some of the top teams may play as late as 7 p.m. Many door prizes will be given out, so you won't want to miss anything!

The event is hosted by Bill Kozlak '91 at his well known restaurant Jax Cafe. Jax is perennially ranked as one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis.
