Happy 2023

Dear backgammon friends,

First of all, from myself, and on behalf of BGFed.be, our federation, my best wishes for

~ a splendid 2023 ~

Our desires, of course, include your best of luck with all sorts of doubles in the beginning of the game and mainly double 5’s & 6’s in the bear-off.

I hope (and I’m pretty sure) you can handle these rolls valuably!

I thank particularly Johan Segers (rating list & website), Michel Lamote (articles & Red Beaver League), Toon Van Herreweghen (Ludite), Chantal Lensen (org. Brussels), Bert Van Kerckhove (org. Ghent), Henri Pollet (org. Leuven), Line Vandamme (org. Brugge), Johan Huyck (national teams).

Please, take a (regular) look at our website, where you’ll find some recent articles & photo’s, the rating list and other results and rankings.
