Can you help?

We need reserve players (or a pair) for the Swiss pairs event on 9th May (see below).

You might be called on to play if there is a late withdrawal, or if someone has Internet problems, for example.

If you (with or without a partner) would be prepared to act as a reserve, please contact Sarah Farr (sarah@farrhome.co.uk).

Many thanks
