Members and Friends,
Just a brief few notes.
1. We’ve been having good turnouts of late due, I believe, primarily to the G15 tournaments we’ve been running. I want to remind players, though, that if we start out with an odd number of participants, someone’s going to get a bye and have to sit the round out unless a latecomer arrives. I ask that you be patient as other players do wander in after the first round starts and things seem to even out.
2. On that note, please keep in mind that the first round of our Thursday night tourneys must, should, will start at 7:00 in order to play the games in a leisurely fashion and finish in plenty of time for the Y closing. This means, of course, that we need you there for pairing well in advance of the 7:00 start … say 6:30?
3. As a added incentive, I think that we (the officers) will consider offering a first place prize out of our library.
4. Finally, Will Thrash has offered to assume duties as our web master and he has a new site constructed which will be installed as soon as we can get him plugged into Go Daddy! All this, of course, is pending approval of a majority of the club officers which I fully expect to happen. Failing that, I will assume dictatorial powers, dissolve the board and install Will. (Sorry, lost my bearings there.)
All for now.
