CUTwC and tiddlywinks news

Latest notices

There will be a CUTwC meeting via Zoom on Wednesday 21st of October from 7:30pm.
Novices, previous attendees and established winkers including the website maintainer, apparently, are all welcome.

There will be an ETwA "gETwAgether" via Zoom from 6pm on Saturday October 31st - watch the ETwA mailing list for details, and consider looking horrifying if you don't already.

Oxford University Tiddlywinks Society has been rejuvinated, so there is hope for the 2020-2021 Varsity match season.

Tiddlywinks is normally a game played with a group of people sociably standing around small tables in a nice warm room; this aspect of CUTwC meetings has obviously been rendered impractical by COVID-19 safety concerns. As such, for the last few months, CUTwC members have been "meeting" on Zoom.

With the new term, official CUTwC meetings will be continuing on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm on Zoom for the time being (see the mailing list for details).

To ensure actual winks games can continue during the COVID-19 restrictions, a ladder tournament will be held for the historical Nick Ashley university singles' league trophy, in place of the traditional CUTwC variety of weekly knock-out tournaments.

Site news
The calendar has been updated, and there's also a vastly overengineered (and yet still a massive hack) swoosh on the front page title; let me know if you find it's broken for you, but I'm hoping most people are using web browsers that aren't too many years out of date (and not a dial-up internet connection).

The ETwA National Singles (and ETwA Congress) has been postponed until the COVID-19 situation is resolved and it is considered safe for the community to play.
There is a plan for an online "gETwAgether" - see the ETwA mailing list for detail.
Watch this space and, and please stay safe.
