Backgammon

The Lincoln Backgammon Club has its weekly club night on Tuesdays at the Club from 7-10.30pm. We welcome anyone with an interest in the game to join us, or even if you just want to have a try. You don’t need to bring a board we will provide you with a proper introduction to the game and the members. We play various competitions during the year, and have an awards ceremony for Trophy winners at the Christmas Dinner event in December.

Backgammon is a member of the large family of tables game whose history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archaeological discoveries in the Jiroft culture, of Persia. Its immediate ancestor was the 16th-century game of Irish, the Anglo-Scottish equivalent of the French Toutes Tables and Spanish Todas Tablas, the latter being recorded by Alfonso X in his 1283 work, El Libro de los Juegos.

Backgammon is a two-player game in which each player has fifteen pieces (checkers (US) or men) that move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen pieces off the board.

Backgammon involves a combination of strategy and luck (from rolling dice). While the dice may determine the outcome of a single game, the better player will accumulate the better record over a series of many games. With each roll of the dice, players must choose from numerous options for moving their pieces and anticipate possible counter-moves by the opponent. The optional use of a doubling cube allows players to raise the stakes during the game.

If you are interested please come and see us on Tuesday nights.

Hello all, just a quick update on the Defibrillator. It has been ordered, but due to the all-to-familiar chip shortages, there is a bit of a lead time. We are hoping for delivery in the next couple of months. We'll keep you updated.

All New Years Eve tickets have now been sold.

Tonight we held the final of the annual Pool Knock-Out competition, this is an event we run each year in memory of Paul and Pat Leach who were both Trustees of the Club. Paul ran the pool team from the Club for many years.

The final was played between Martin Cannings and Dean Brammer, with Martin winning 3-1.

Thank you to all who played. Both players have donated their winnings to the Club's Community Defibrillator fund.

Steve Leach (Paul and Pats son) presented the winners their prize money and the winners trophy.

Hello All,

As you are likely aware, the Covid-19 pandemic is still with us, and it will be for a while yet. As a Committee we have reviewed and will continue to review the situation as it develops. There is a fine line between providing a safe environment for members & staff and getting back to business as usual. There have been a number of events recently which have caused concern.

Sometimes the reality is we have to take a step backwards for us to move forwards, and we have to make decisions that won't always be popular, but it is in the best interests for all.

From Thursday 2nd December, we will re-introduce the "No Standing at the Bar" rule. This is to protect our staff and our members alike. The seats at the bar end of the bar will also be removed.

This is a temporary measure, and will remain in place until at least the next Government announcement.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you can appreciate this is not a decision we have taken lightly.

Management Committee (01/12/2021)
