Second in our series of tournament announcements – we’re delighted to tell you about the West Yorkshire Backgammon Open 2017. This will be held on April 21-23 at Clayton Village Hall, Bradford, with Steve Lee and Tim Cross directing.

Voting ended a few minutes ago for the UKBGF Elections at 6 p.m. UK time. In total 169 people voted. The last vote was cast at 5:34 p.m.
