    Re: Can you have too many State Titles?

    That's a bullshit comment Commie. Some tournaments are planned well in advance does that mean you dont enter anything just in case you win a regional title? In my circumstances last year I would have...

    No use complaining if you were not good enough to beat the guy that beat you and he pulls out.

    Re: First game of pennant season?

    Will certainly screw up the calendar of some clubs if this is the case not to mention tournaments and other events, Numurkah pairs is one that comes to mind.
