GR8 MEMORIAL FUND

As some of you may know, after a long struggle with illness, one of our much loved TD’s,GR8, passed away at 5:20 a.m. on Easter Sunday morning. Jerry was one of our first TDs and considered us his second family. He loved GameColony, the TDs and the players. In a conversation with one of our webmasters, Jerry remarked that he found our site, whether hosting, or having a friendly game with the players, to be very therapeutic for him.

Jerry registered his account at GameColony on October 8, 2003. On December 13, 2003 he hosted his first cribbage tournament; and on March 27th, 2012, he hosted his last cribbage tournament. Total tournaments Gr8 hosted was 2,730.

We don’t often do this at GameColony, but because he was loved not just by his fellow TD’s, but the players, as well, we are establishing a GR8 Memorial Fund for Gr8’s family to help them out with some of the expenses they are experiencing. If any player would like to make a donation, please do a “Contact Us” as soon as possible, but no later than April 20th, telling the webs you would like to transfer X amount of tickets from your account to the Gr8 Memorial Fund. Any amount, no matter how little or how big, will be greatly appreciated.

GR8 will be missed by all.

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
