If you would like to represent CT in the upcoming Online USBGF Championship, please let me know. I will be the captain for the first team and the deadline for signups is the 20th. So please let me know. Here is all the info for the tourney: usbgf.org/usbgf-events/2012-usbgf-national-club-team-championship
Next Sat, if my schedule allows, I will do a BG clinic in Ffld, so stay tuned.
And next Sun is the Pair-O-Dice monthly in NYC if anyone wants to carpool or train together.
Mark your calendar for April 14 for the next NEBC Tourney in MA.
Also, Leyla from the NY group has started a really great event at the Athletic Club in NYC. This is where I won that tournament and it's a nice venue. If anyone would like to go to this event I will be happy to carpool or train in with you as well. Here is the email she sent out:
Dear Backgammon enthusiasts,
We held a number of successful Backgammon events at the NYAC in the month of February 2012, during two of which there was a trophy offered for the winner of the most 5-point matches: Ms. Martha Ghio and Ms. Susan Keyloun. Congratulations to both ladies! The next similar event is scheduled for next Monday, March 12th, 2012, beginning at 6pm. The format will be similar where the winner of the highest number of matches will be presented with an NYAC trophy; the price is $10 per person to cover the cost of the trophy. The NYAC Backgammon Club is happy to extend this invitation to the NYC Backgammon Meet-Up group. Please remember that NYAC has a dress code of no jeans or sneakers, a jacket is required, and a tie is encouraged; similar elegant attire for ladies please. NYAC is located at 180 Central Park South, corner of 7th Avenue. We will play in the historic Cards Room on the 9th floor overlooking Central Park. Please r.s.v.p. to my email - [address removed] - so that I can add you to the list for the entry. There is no need to bring a board since the club is providing backgammon boards.
I am looking forward to seeing many of you next week.
NYAC Backgammon Club
P.S. Please save the date for a similar event on Tuesday, March 27th, 2012
