Bristol Conference 2017

Entrants are continually sought for the Conference. Entry is permissible throughout the year, the cost being 10. Late entry -- i.e. after the end of August -- is subject to a half fee.
Each player is allowed up to four matches against each other in the league in 11-point matches.
The season closes at the end of November.
Players arrange their own fixtures -- playing as many or as few matches as they wish -- at mutually acceptable venues and times, with Bristol Backgammon's Monday and Thursday sessions being prime opportunities.
