Hi Bob,
Glad to hear you liked the pics. I intend to add many more over the next few weeks showing tournaments going back quite some years.

Thanks Lindus,

I really do enjoy looking at pictures. Is it possible to add the names? I only know the name of a few.

I didn't see any pictures of you, you need to learn to do the self-portrait, it seems incomplete if we don't see a picture of everyone who attended the tournament. I feel a little bit like I've been cheated. (just kidding)

Thanks again Lindus. I will be looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Hi Liam, I presume that Lindus took all the pictures himself ;-(

So you might try turning your screen around and close your eyes.
That smiling gentleman with a camera that you now see, that's Lindus ;-(

P.S:
How about looking at the pictures and telling what we see.
Wait for my next mail ;-(

Thank you Ingo for your ever helpful observations.
I have just checked some camera users manuals to see if mine is the only one with a "self timer" facility.

Greetings from a cloudy Ireland.

Hi Pal, Liam and Ingo,
Photobucket is perhaps the best of its kind as Geocities only allows a small amount of space. Unfortunately Photobucket does not provide a feature for adding names and so I will have to do so at this forum. My first care was to upload the photographs however.
The thought of turning my digital camera around and taking a photograph of myself did occur to me but I instantly dismissed the idea as I did not want to break such an expensive piece of equipment with my hideous face :cry:
Seriously though guys, I will post the players' names as soon as I can here.

Many thanks Dave. Here is a list I just created which should fill in any missing gaps.
1 - Mrs and Mrs Fred Buckby. 2- Frank Bednall of Manchester.
3- Len Chandler.
4- Patricia Breen playing Len Chandler
5- Charlie McKenna hovering over Frank Bednall.
6- Frank Bednall (left) .
7- Fred Gill (left) playing ?.
8- Charlie McKenna.
9- Patrick of Ireland
10- Tom Watson looking on at Len Chandler and Pat Breen.
13- Ian Caws (Chairman of EDA) playing Bill Long (right).
15- Jimmy Grant - English Open Champion.
16- Jim O'Brien.
19- Mike Peach.
20- John Morgan (English Open Intermediate Champion).
21-John Joliff.
22-Frank Bednall.
24- Pat Breen.
25- Jim Grant.
37- John Morgan playing ?
39- Ian Caws.
40- Danny Oliphant.
So far as the missing numbers are concerned I thought it unnecessary to add names as one can easily deduce same from the ones given.

Yes Dave, number 36 is Brian Lucas. Not a good photograph as the background light did not help.
One must remember that it is not easy for me to take photographs as I use a crutch to gain locomotion and being therefore a bit like Long John Silver I only have the one hand available to hold the camera :cry:
