Involuntarily retired journalist and graphic artist. I used to play at regular tournaments organized by the old Milwaukee Backgammon Club (led by the late, great Bob Holyon) until its demise sometime in the 1980s.

I hope to revive the club through We meet monthly at 7 p.m. the last Tuesday of every month at McGinn's restaurant-tavern, 5901 W Bluemound Road (a block west of Hawley Road). If enough players start showing up regularly, I hope to start tournament play as well. McGinn's serves from a full menu (their Tuesday night dinner special is fried chicken), plus drinks and snack food.

I also host a Backgammon Option at the Cream City Cribbagers Meetup at 7 p.m. the first Thursday of every month at Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall, 1920 S 37th St (a couple doors south of Burnham Ave). Kochanski's doesn't serve food, but several cribbagers, including the Meetup host, usually bring good snack and dessert food. Forums is maintained by Stick with WebBBS 5.12.
