Hi Bobby,

Thanks for the reminder on psychology although I’m struggling at times. I generally default to TD for a small club with 5 or 6 people, Many older members and some with mobility problems plus battles with eyesight and concentration. Sorting out a movement to let people sit and gently conveying people along is hard work especially as I know I have a 75 mile drive home, some on small roads, after the game; I work away Monday to Thursday.

Any bright ideas? Lots of caffeine perhaps?

Hi Iain,

Sorry to hear that you have an obstacle course to, please excuse the word, deal with your
bridge obstruction. You might then learn the real (and valid) sacrifices necessary to get your possible weekly fix in tow.

However, heroes like you, can then receive both the spoils from consistent wins added to your joy, making it worth the 75 mile drive home. From the game itself, it should write you
a thank you letter, but instead likely waits till you go down one more trick than you can afford, when ever you take the gamble of just another way of sacrificing.
