What a great opportunity to hear a Life Master (Bill Williams) talk about rook theory, coming this Thursday to the club!! Chances like this do not present themselves every day. Please come down to the club and take advantage of this occasion. And then after listening and absorbing Master Williams' wonderful lecture on rook theory, play some G/29 or G/30 and see if you can orchestrate your own rook theory!:) Hope to see everybody on Thursday.
