REGRETTABLY, DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC THE BACKGAMMON CLUB WILL NOT BE MEETING. AS SOON AS WE ALL FEEL IT IS SAFE, WE WILL CONTACT ONE-&-ALL AND ANNOUNCE OUR NEW MEETINGS. STAY SAFE.
The Y’s Men’s Backgammon Club welcomes new members. If you have an interest in playing or learning backgammon, please contact Chairman Woody Bliss or Vice Chairman Larry Hirsch or just show up at a Tuesday meeting.
If you do e-mail, please indicate:
(1) Your level of play - beginner, intermediate or advanced,

Twice a year we sponsor an all-day backgammon tournament, one in the winter and one in the summer.
