New Year to all visitors and contributors to JSFnetGB!
We at JSFnetGB hope that readers had a good Christmas and New Year
celebration! Sorry for the delayed update - I have been recovering from an
eye injury (seems fine at last!).
On the menu for this first update of 2016 is the addition
of scoreboard for all heats of
SPIEL 1974 (except Heat 4), with
thanks to Neil. Neil has also located the correct venue for
at Brighton - it can be difficult pinpointing these venues, particularly
when the programmes themselves were wiped many years ago - and also, in
this case, the venue is also long lost to us. A fascinating update.
