Cody Gotchall attended Oregon State University, where he was primarily interested in STEM courses (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Because of his interest in math, Cody Gotchall enjoys playing cribbage.

Depending on both skill and luck of the draw, cribbage is a card game that incorporates a unique terminology that players must learn. Here are a few of the cribbage terms:

Crib: The dealer gets a crib, which is two cards discarded from each player. This gives the dealer additional points.

Go: When a player cannot play a card without exceeding 31 points, he or she calls it a go and the next play goes back to the previous player.

Skunk: A skunk occurs when a player wins by more than 31 points.

Double Skunk: A double skunk occurs when a player wins by more than 61 points.

A student at Linn-Benton Community College, Cody Gotchall studies in Albany, Oregon, and has a passion for reading and music. One of Cody Gotchall’s favorite musicians is Bruce Springsteen, whom he admires for his melodic sensibility and the concern for social justice that runs through both his music and his actions as a public figure.

With the Boss having enjoyed a triumphant one man acoustic show, ‘Springsteen On Broadway,’ in 2017, he also gave his blessing to a recent Thanksgiving benefit at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park. The annual Hungerthon benefits the nonprofit WhyHunger, which was cofounded by radio host Bill Ayres and musician Harry Chapin. Due to the popularity of a similar event held four years before, the 2017 Hungerthon featured nonstop Springsteen music for 24 hours.

A longtime supporter of WhyHunger, Bruce Springsteen donated a ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’ t-shirt and baseball cap to the Hungerthon. He is also active with Artists Against Hunger & Poverty as a founding member.
