Here’s a rhetorical question: Does anyone remember a backgammon tournament that hasn’t run out of free coffee?
We’re coming up to the half way point on the UK Tour – last weekend was the Liverpool Open and we’re pleased to congratulate the winners…
This year we’re expanding our online tournament offering – starting with two flights in our popular Online Championships. Both remain free to enter to UKBGF members, and offer plenty of play.
The UKBGF will be holding its second Annual General Meeting at 5pm on Friday 31st August, at Coombe Abbey – that is, prior to the dinner with Akiko Yazawa, and the Warm Up event at the UK Open. The meeting should be finished in plenty of time for players who want to take part in the Warm Up. This is an opportunity to the Board to report directly to members and for members to put motions and questions to the board in a formal setting. We hope that members will take the opportunity to join us.
Last year’s meeting was well attended and some interesting discussions took place; this year there will be elections for the next Board coming up and if you’re thinking of standing for election and want to find out more about how the Board work before making a decision, it would definitely be a good idea to come along.
Motions to be put at the meeting need to be sent to the Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org by 12th August 2018 so that they can be distributed to members in advance. Detailed questions can be sent in beforehand, also to the Chair and by the same date, to give time for an answer to be prepared; we will do our best to handle questions on the day as well.

Due to the extreme generosity of one of our backgammon friends we have a book collection for sale. All proceeds will go to charity.
