Club on Mother's Day; Local Club Tourney, May 23

BECAUSE OF THE RESPONSES RECEIVED,
THERE WILL BE NO CLUB SESSION ON MOTHER'S DAY,
SUNDAY, MAY 9.

To cut down on unnecessary e-mails, I am going to try using our club blog to show responses on surveys about club attendance. When I send out an e-mail reminder, I will ask that you either respond to me individually or leave a comment on a blog post here. I will take the responses and update the post to reflect your feedback. This blog entry is my first attempt at doing it in this manner. We'll see how it works.

I checked with the manager at Perkins, and we will be able to have a club session on this coming Sunday, May 9, Mother's Day, but because of business on that day and the longer time needed to clean up the large dining room that we use, he asked that, if we have club, we begin at 4 p.m. for that day, instead of our usual 3 p.m. start time.

WHO WILL OR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND
CLUB ON MOTHER'S DAY, SUNDAY, MAY 9
(Club, if held, will begin at 4 p.m.)
-----
0 will be able attend:
9 will not be able to attend: Andrea, Andy, Betty, Jan, Janet, John, Pat, Steve, Victoria
1 is unsure about attending: Will
----------------------------------
We hope to hold a local club tournament on Sunday, May 23, at our regular meeting place, Perkins Family Restaurant in Lexington. This would be a five-round tourney, one-third rated by NASPA. It will give people who are unable to travel the opportunity to establish a NASPA rating and play in a tournament environment. We're still working on specifics, but I am anticipating the registration fee to be $12. Under NASPA rules, a player must be a current member of NASPA to play in a tournament sanctioned by NASPA. (Steve and I have no control over this. This is not the case in the new Word Game Players' Organization; anyone can play at a WGPO tourney. I encourage all our club members to join the WGPO. There are currently no annual membership dues for WGPO, and if any are ever established, they will not be inflated like NASPA's are.)
.
If this local club tournament works well, we may well try to do them on bimonthly or even monthly basis.

I have indicated UNSURE about club on Mothers' Day because I am not going to schedule a sitter to attend unless some of you indicate you want to come play. If I delay too long in requesting a sitter, one may not be available.

Thanks, Andy. Do you have a response yet about the local club tourney on Sunday, May 23?

Sadly I will not be able to make it on Sunday May 23rd to the LCT. My wife is performing in a concert that day.
