So it begins.....................

So the first night began...............

First to arrive Steve closely followed by Paul, from the Coventry Club.

Straight in we began the 1pt competition, rotating to play everyone. Sue and Rosie represented the ladies corner!

Rhod arrived and dived straight in. Kevin, who had NEVER played before, sat in with Rhod and began a quick learning curve - flying solo by the end of the night.

Two new guys arrived, Simon and Jon, who used to play ad hoc in town, but found us through Freecycle !!

Both good players - hope to see them again.

Finally Shiggy arrived claiming to not have played for 30 odd years !!!!!!  and proceeded to beat me - great :(

I'll claim I played most of his moves for him !!


Overall a great night - thanks to everyone for making the first one so successful.


See you all on the 17th

The most recent meeting saw the return of Paul, Jon and Simon 2, many thanks to all who attended. Mr Taylor was otherwise engaged(golfing) but alas the night was a great success, not for me however in the singles tournament as I failed to score a point, no gammon's against me though! Paul introduced a fantastic variant, the name I forget but it was basically three against one, great fun and superb tuition for the doubling cube! Rhod
