    I was debating it as I got a Get out of Jail Free card for fathers day. 8) I think I may play at the Bow club in a 1 day swiss the following week.

    I understand that Walt and Art are going to be there.

    Tak: I would have kissed the player that allowed me that position. It is straight out of heaven (PCT). I take it you dispatched him in short order.

Awfully sorry about that. I won't be home until tomorrowso we might have to try netx weekend unless you're a real night person. I'm going to see if I can arrange something else during the week, will let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience!
