Bridge Too Far Game 13th and 14th September - The Germans

Plush chairs, maps , light tables and sand trays, efficent WAAFs and crusty Admirals , curtained windows and scrambled phones...the place to talk about the annual big game and those sort of events...and all the recruiting and planning of such

Ty

sadly it is looking like I may not be available after all. Champions of Champions starts that weekend and although the U17's are not even in contention his nibs who also is a ref has been given a heads up that he may be travelling to Dubbo as 1 of the Assn reps. This is apparently a new concept to spread the gene pool. In addition SWMBO is heading off to Adelaide for a conference so despite their being plenty of me to spread around I do like to stay in 1 piece so it looks like I will be heading over the mountains that weekend, sorry I really want to get there but fate has dealt me out.
