Coming Event: Idaho Open - Boise, May 13-14.
On January 20, the Boise club played Twin Falls a match in Glenns Ferry, arranged for by Bill Jackson. Everyone had a great time and similar matchess will be continued in the future. Dee Harris of Sugar City went with the Boise club but, when Twin showed up two short, played for them. He nicely drew both games to avoid influencing the outcome! Play was timed 45/45. Twin Falls won 8½-7½ in a close test.
