Gerhard Roland of Naugatuck defeated Mark Denihan of Coventry in the semi-finals. Al then defeated Gerhard in the finals. || We all enjoyed a simple picnic in the yard, with corn on the cob, chicken, hamburgers and watermelon. || Our website has six photos taken at this event, at our new venue for backgammon, and for chess, with plans to conduct six backgammon tournaments per year, and six chess tournaments per year. || The next backgammon event happens Saturday October 1, 2016. Entry fee is only $40. || Rob Roy will again guarantee a $320 minimum prize fund this backgammon tournament on Oct 1.

Rob is devoted to developing a successful backgammon program, and a successful chess program, in Coventry Connecticut.
