and of course I'll be there too... with a fun army with representatives from all regions of the British isles.. led of course by Paul de Johnston and his trusty friend Bishop de Johnston. His good ally Paulus O'Johnston might make an appearance too....not sure if Paulwynn Llyngogynjohnston will be there though

2 items of news.

The Memorial Hall, Luncarty is booked so plenty of space.

Chef Eric will be performing his annual miracles in the kitchen. BIG prize for the first basho goer to down one of his legendary quadruple bypass baps (and live).

We look forward to welcoming old friends to the basho and encourage anyone thinking of coming to speak to regulars and then make the trip. You will be made very welcome and will have a whale of a time (avoid the QBBs though).

Memorial Hall booked. Not the football club this year as they can't give us a guarantee on the premises. On the bright side its airy and nor smelly before we start! Oh - and the toilets are closer to the tables Paul .......

Hunter for a bit of variety why don't we introduce the new version 3 amendments that they are going to use at the Doubles as outlined by Tim Porter in the listing for that topic.

Where is your sense of adventure. It would reinvigorate the tournament.

I'm not in favour of going for the V3 changes yet. As Terrys latest AAR shows the rules are still in flux. So OK for trial games, but too fluid for a tournament.

Hunter is coming south of the border soon so clearly has some sense of adventure... v3 is too fluid at mo for me... rules keep changing etc... stick to current version as it maybe FOG swansong ?

I'd go for the V3 amendments, after all, it's just for fun........plus I'm on a roll, played two V3 games, been absolutely humped both times :)
