Next Weeks’ Draw

Posted: 30/03/2016 by Ian in Club News

The draw for next week is below. Remember no byes allowed in the final two rounds, so if you cant make it you will forfeit the point, unless you can arrange to play your opponent prior, for instance on the weekend. Let me know if you cant be there, so that we can save your opponent coming in unnecessarily, and so that I can  see what can be arranged in terms of a make-up game.
