I would humbly like to refute your suggestions, Richard. There are several examples in the fossil record where there is a gradual, clear progression over tens of millions of years showing the appearance of a new high-level taxonomic group. The best studied is probably the therapsids, or "mammal-like...

That looks like a really good event and would have loved to go, but unfortunately that weekend is no good for me.

Shovs - you are both talking on behalf of players who have ambitions to become multi-table players and that group is still pretty small. Cambridge last year on Eurosoccer was a great success wasn't it? I don't think that attracted a limited player base in any way. If anything, it levels the playing...

Boris/Richard - thanks for posting the information about the accounts. It has answered a lot of my questions. My personal feeling is that I would be very happy to pay a small membership fee for the BFA. HOWEVER, at the risk of sounding churlish, I would much rather see that money go towards things l...

Can someone give a rough breakdown of what the BFA currently spends its money on? I can see that a lot of work is done by the committee and members of the BFA in terms of maintaining this site, giving advice and support to event organisers etc. etc. but my understanding (which may be wrong) is that ...

Hi Ash, I live very near to Blandford (Spetisbury) although most of the time nowadays I spend up in Oxford. I've not come across any tables locally, but then I've not made a concerted effort to look since I only got into playing since coming to university. I think your best bet may be Bournemouth, a...

I don't think there's any reason we couldn't use the New College Bar table - the main bar is closed but the outer bit where the table is kept would be open until 11ish. The down side is that it's not an amazing table,  rods OK but some "special" roll and orange balls, also the fact that the bar woul...
