Christmas rapidplay

Posted by fellman01 on December 18, 2013

Twelve members took part in a five-round rapidplay (15 minutes each) event at the club on Tuesday Dec 17th. Runaway winner was David Wrigley with a straight 5/5. Behind him was a large pack (Derek Blair, Bruce Reed, Tim Wrigley, Jeremy Handley, Dave Foster sr and Peter Crichton) on 3/5. Next came Peter Booker and Phil Taylor on 2/5. Bringing up the rear were Steve Larkin and Dave Foster jr on 1/5. A fun evening and many thanks to Peter C for the mince pies!

Old Website – Bulletins & Games

Posted by Tim W on November 14, 2012

Bad news I’m afraid. BT have withdrawn the free web space that I used for the old Tynedale Website. This does not affect the current website, but does mean that old archive of games & Steve’s bulletins are not available online.
I have a copy of the old website on my PC, so none of it is actually lost and I can put it on a CD for anyone who wants it.
