    Count me in Captain thanks! ... Also:
    1) please count me in for the Club's championship!
    oooops I just checked the calendar - three of the Champ's dates coincide with other tournaments I have already entered (Parramatta Festival, Geelong Open and Tasmanian Open so I can't make it! apologies 2) am I late for this year's membership fee? I forgot all about it!

    first entry

    I had to get to page two to find this my pet tournament, but we do have our first entrant. Fludey the Box Hill calendar guru has thrown his hat into the ring. Sorry about the cliche folks I was going to use first cab of the rank but my alter ego used that before

    Woof woof

    The pit bull terrier has entered. Watch out for my ferocious openings.

    More importantly I am seeing the eye specialist next week. I need new glasses.
    This should make a difference.

    Is the eye specialist thingy part of the warning or the excuse?

    The dreaded1/2 point bye syndrome

    There have been requests for 1/2 points byes already and although the tournament organizer is not a great fan of this modern tendency he accepts that the reality is with us. The protocol [if that is the word I am thinking of] for this tournament will be as follows
    A player can take one 1/2 point bye for one round only up to and including round 5 provided the player requests such a bye before the previous round or at the time of entering

    Forgotten withdrawal

    Sorry Elliott I had forgotten about that. It spoils the caption of that rather nice photo of you and Carl in the news sheet

    I am wondering what would it take for another club to be able to run it.
