Valerie Austwick

It is with great sadness we report the death of another Wiltshire player, Valerie Austwick. She had represented Wiltshire in numerous competitions.

Robot scores in Wiltshire online games

After a number of comments from players about the scores achieved by robots playing in Wiltshire events, it has been decided to remove these scores before posting the results. If you had a bad score against a robot, this will be removed, regretably if you had good score this will also be removed. The director has made, and will continue to make, an annoucement at the start of the Wiltshire Tuesday and Saturday online games to this effect.
