Very sorry for the last Min post but this Thursdays meeting (30th March) is going to have to be cancelled due to a family emergency.
Hopefully we will be back to normal for the next meet in April.

Please watch this space for details before you travel.. 

Sorry for any inconvenience.

New venue.



Hello.... After a short absence we are now back up and running at a new location.
We are now meeting upstairs every other Thursday at No8 cafe in Launceston town center at 14:30.

No 8 serves hot and cold drinks as well  as some very yummy food. Although if you are planning on eating when playing, bear in mind that the kitchen closes at 14:30. So best be early.

 

Members are a little thin on the ground at present, but we are hoping with your help this will soon be rectified.

If you can play or just fancy learning, come along, we wont bite.....Honest..
No need to bring a board but if you have one it can't hurt.




We are members of the UKBGF who very kindly helped us get started two years ago and who offer a very good Backgammon related website to keep you informed of all things Backgammonie. (is that a real word? no idea)



My long term goal is to have enough commited members to be able to run a league and maybe in the future send a team to the clubs championships.
But for now I would be more than happy to see new faces.

The next meeting will be on Thursday 30th March 14:30
Thats the plan for now but please please check back here just in case it's canceled for some reason.

On No....A page is missing


As you may or may not have noticed our meetings page is missing.



Don't panic normal service will be resumed soon.

However

we are also planning a Thursday afternoon meeting in Launceston town center. We have a venue in mind but are yet to finalise details. (watch this space)

The idea being that Thursday afternoon in a cafe will potentially interest a completely different set of people who may not want to go out in the evening to a pub.

So while we are sorting things out it's meetings as usual at the Pint & Post.

New club??

It's been a funny old couple of weeks.

We have had a new player come along for the last three weeks. Great I hear you cry, fresh members..

Well that didn't quite work out.

This week he came along to announce that he wouldn't be coming very often from now on as he had been chatting with some friends and they were planning on starting a club local to them.

So bad news that he won't be a regular. But at the same time I can completely understand this as his trip to us every Tuesday was roughly a 50 mile round trip.

On the plus side, good news that there is going to be another club in the south west  as well as somewhere else for me to find a game.



I'm hoping that when they are up and running a

Lansongammon. v. ??

match can be arranged.



I think he is planning on getting a mention on the UKBGF site club list as well as BIBA so keep an eye on their site for a nice new club in the area.
