All players are reminded that being available by 7:15 so a
draw can be organised is appreciated. Those who know they will be late
should contact BRUCE PARR on 0439675201 especially in the first 6 meeting
weeks as I will be missing most of them.

For many years the club has issued a newsletter called The Blotter
on an "as needed" basis. With the advent of the website, a natural
progression for issuing information is the development of this page.
All the latest information regarding club activities, including finals, tournaments,
visits etc will be posted here on a fortnightly basis.
Club members are welcome to
submit items of interest (both related and non-related to Backgammon)
so as there is always something new to view! Other club Tournament organizers
may also submit information which may be of interest to our members.
