"Fred Slater and I were discussing this rule during our first round game at Tavistock.   I believe I interpreted that in an unopposed position, one of the buttons involved in your shot needs to end in a qualifying position (on the fifteen line…"

"I found Mespi available at http://www.timewellspentgames.com. I found it much faster than fresh waxing alone. The game play seemed to start looking like Nathan Walsh's videos of tournament matches with discs that seem to float as if on ice."

Clare Kuepfer replied to Demian Johnston's discussion Tournament Powder
"The Sun Glow #5 is consdered a slower speed and is finer than # 1.  The number one is too coarse and too unpredictable. Actually a good coat of carnuba wax (paste) and well buffed,(discs also) I find you really don't need…"

"Nice board.  How did you do the lines?"
May 8, 2012
Nathan Walsh replied to Demian Johnston's discussion WCC Accessories and questions
"I can answer a few of those. The cues category does use lazy susans, and for consistency (even though it's not necessary), the one cheek rule is still in effect. Players are also required to bring their own cues to the event. I don't…"
