The K.C. To Host Annual Burgman/Boyle Cribbage Tournament
The Annual Burgman / Boyle Cribbage Tournament is set for May 13, 2023, at the Knights of Columbus Hall.
The annual tournament is a fundraiser for the Burgman/Boyle Scholarship fund, which provides a scholarship for Butte High and Butte Central graduates in honor of Casey Boyle and Kyle Burgman, friends who passed away on August 10, 2015, in an automobile accident. The two were great friends, and competed with one another at everything, but especially basketball and cribbage.
The Cribbage Tournament has gone hand in hand over the years with the Burgman/Boyle Basketball Classic. The basketball game has featured a Bulldog-Maroon Alumni game over the years and the “Boyle’s Buddies” game featuring Special Olympic Athletes coached by the late Casey Boyle.
The Alumni game, and more importantly the Boyle’s Buddies game has been held in every major gym in Butte, the Civic Center, the MAC, and Richardson gym. The Madrazo Gym inside the Knights of Columbus, and the newly remodeled East Middle School gym have hosted the Boyles Buddies game the last couple of years.
The Cribbage tournament will start play at 1 pm on May 13th, with registration starting at Noon. The entry fee for the tournament will be $30 and the games will be played 3-handed. Lunch will be provided. There will be prizes awarded for the top finishers in the tournament, as well as a 50/50 drawing, and door prizes to boot.
This is a day to celebrate and remember Kyle Burgman and Casey Boyle and help raise funds for the scholarship in their honor. For information, you can call Tom at 406-498-4201 or Brianna at 406-490-2141.
