The Great 2005 Post Labor Day Get Off The Beach Backgammon Tournament And Pasta With Herbed Scallops Finale  —  Time for another backgammon party to get everyone together after the long Summer! I thought we should celebrate the passing of Labor Day and the official end of Summer. Because this was a "get off the beach" theme, I told everyone that they needed to wear casual beach goin' clothes and to bring sunglasses and a beach towel. Here's Galen and Rick with gear and ready to play!

The Great 2005 Post Labor Day Get Off The Beach Backgammon Tournament And Pasta With Herbed Scallops Finale  —  This is what happens after dinner and you are trying to get your score up to at least qualify for the finals. Did this impress Sherrie? Noooooooooooo. Of course not. Not even the shades threw her off. She hammered me pretty good. Thanks. I'll have another sip of wine... about the only good thing I seemed to be able to do all night!

The Great 2006 4th of July Backgammon Tournament And Chinese Pork and Bamboo Shoots Stir Fry Fireworks  —  I believe I was trying to explain to Rick here about how I was going to kick his ass. But as you can see, he's just ignoring the whole thing and getting ready to move his checker onto my checker to send it to the bar, where I danced through about 4 throws trying to re-enter. The game had got so annimated that I dumped part of my beer on my shirt and pants. Very professional of me, don't you think?

The Great 2010 4th of July Backgammon Tournament And Chinese Stir Fry Fireworks  —  Sue, is that a curled up fist of death and the steely-eyed glare of a combatant I see from you in only your second game of backgammon? Yeow! Stand back from the fence, ladies and gentlemen....
