Everyone was a winner this day as together a total of £1,160 was raised for the Charity. What a way to spend a day, playing backgammon and raising money for those less fortunate than ourselves. And of course, the prize of being Top Turkey in UK or Top Chick in UK. There is only one Turkey and Chick title in the UK in backgammon and it is awarded by the Worcester Backgammon Club
We cannot leave this poultry event without acknowledging some very special people (we will miss someone, but unintentional!) Firstly, David Sanders for putting all the technology and website in place to allow the easy registration and scoring for the various events held on this day, for corresponding to queries and generally helping make it happen. Secondly, the tournament director and expert dice shaker, Sean Jones. Keeping the tournament focussed and on task. Rounding up the Turkeys and Chicks to play their games and abide by the rules. Then the real powerhouses behind such an event; Karen Jones-chief present wrapper, raffle seller, curry dispenser, kitchen manager and so much more. Mervyn Bleach-general helper, cleaner and team support. Michelle Ford-volunteer helping Karen do all the things asked including the stressful Curry dispensing and tidying up. Kerry Jones-Dishwasher and assistant kitchen organiser. For the fantastic lunch supplied by the fabulous Ian Gwynne. Finally our thanks to the Claines British Legion Club and the manager Dave for embracing the Worcester Backgammon Club and its tournaments. So many people who work to make this tournament what it is-the only one of its kind-Turkeys and Chicks Rock!
