Before the pandemic, the Eagles Club in downtown Bozeman hosted a weekly cribbage tournament. I used to play all of the time at the Eagles Club, but due to the pandemic, the weekly game got shut down. While there's no longer a weekly game at the Eagles, there are a few new cribbage clubs that have been playing on a weekly basis in the Gallatin Valley.
