Foreign Visitor Fund
NATwA periodically invites a British winker to the States to play in a NATwA tournament, and helps to defray some of the costs of travel. This year we have invited Keith Seaman to visit and play in the NATwA Singles. If you can, please contribute some amount (e.g. $50 to $75) to the Foreign Visitor Fund. Please send your checks to Rick Tucker at the address below. Thank you.
Are you a NATwA Member?
In the mailing of Newswink 26 in March, I included a request for payment of NATwA dues. The response was good, but quite incomplete. In the future, notices of NATwA events (such as this one), Newswinks, discounts on equipment, etc., will only be available to paid NATwA members. 1992 will also see the return of NATwA membership cards, newly redesigned. Therefore, I encourage those of you who haven't paid your dues to do so NOW. A membership form is enclosed with this mailing. As of 5 April 1992, the following are NATwA members:
Bozo (Gerald) Linden
I do not have current addresses for the following winkers. Any information would be appreciated.
L (Richard Hussong)
Moishe (Michael Schwartz)
Vote on the Perimeter Rule!
In Newswink 26 (page 17), Sunshine proposes to adopt the Perimeter Rule as part of the official NATwA Rules of Tiddlywinks. As it turns out, Richard Moore of ETwA is proposing a rule nearly identical to the Perimeter Rule for inclusion in the ETwA Rules. I trust that all the recipients of this Gromper's Gazette have read Sunshine's proposal; if you do not have a copy, send me a note and I'll send you a one. Herewith NATwA is calling for a vote on the Perimeter Rule. All NATwA members have a vote; nonmembers may also voice their opinions if they wish. Here are the three options for adopting the Perimeter Rule. Note that options for only non-Perimeter and only Perimeter are not on the ballot.
Rule A: Keep current (non-Perimeter Rule), with Perimeter Rule used only if all players in a particular game so choose.
Rule B: Perimeter rule becomes the standard; current rule used only if all players in a particular game so choose.
Rule C: Different rule for different matches. E.g. Rule A for Singles & Pairs, Rule B for Individual Pairs; to be determined for others.
Please vote with rank order of preference (i.e., 1st, 2nd, and 3rd preferences of the above three options). Send your votes to Rick Tucker no later than 26 June 1992; results will be applied to the NATwA Singles the following weekend. Ballots from a majority of NATwA members on that date will be required to complete this vote.
