Hi Everyone!

If you're interested in attending but concerned or nervous for some reason please get in touch - this is a friendly tournament aimed at players new to face-to-face Diplomacy and the aim is to have a good time and meet people as well as playing the game. If there's anything I can do to help that, just email me at acgoff@hotmail.com

I guess you must be the oldest one there now? I assume people like Frank M., Tristan Lee or Bill Brown are long gone?

@flash:

Sadly, Bill Brown passed away recently. Glasses were raised, and words were said. Goffy named the boards at the tournament in Bill's honour.

Tristan Lee is I believe not in the country anymore (he was around before I was, I never met him). Are you an Australian player?

Oh, no! I didn't know. I am sorry to hear that! Last sent him an email about a decade ago (time flies). I think Bill put me up when I went down to his Geelong tournament one year.

Yes, I was an Australian player (I even ran a tournament for a couple of years)...but I haven't played face to face in a long, long, LONG time (early nineties). After a good couple of years, I think we were having trouble getting enough players to come to the tournaments (not much point if you don't get AT LEAST three tables) so I lost interest too.

Actually, perhaps I am getting Bill and Ken Sproat confused on the Geelong thing...
