Club Night, 7 June 2016

Eight players pitched up for our June meeting so we held a three point all play all. 

Graeme, Ian & Gary all finished with five wins out of seven so a one point play off was held & Graeme was triumphant. Well done Graeme, who was crowned last week as our inaugural league champion. 

A presentation was also made to Ian Cumpson who won the UKBGF sponsored Backgammon in the Sun event last year in Holland Park, London. Ian was made to wait a long time for his trophy but better late than never & well done, Ian!
