    Very sad to report that Dan Eatherington a very good friend to the Sangamon Valley Backgammon Association and many others has died. Dan was a founding member of our club. Dan loved to play and in all the years I never heard Dan whine or complain about any of his bad luck or his opponents good fortunes. Dan also was an avid bicyclist and loved his Cubbies. He will be dearly missed. 

    Last night A board was set up for Dano. Maybe he was playing GT. 


    Congratulations to Jena for winning 10 matches in a row from 4/3 through 1st round of 4/24.
Congratulations to The Peoria Backgammon Club!
