On this day....

Is it correct that 101 years ago today Peter Adolph was born? Amazing to think the joy and camaraderie that his game has brought and continues to bring to so many. Ar dhéis lámh Dé thú.

It would be interesting to see how many people would be interested in playing in an old Subbuteo event to commemorate him. After all he is the father of Subbuteo. Even those players who play the modern game know where its origins lie and surely would support such an event. Every two years, different location, Tunbridge Wells? Would be interesting to hear everyone's views.

Sounds an excellent idea to me, and it seems only correct that any inaugural meeting or event should take place in Tunbridge Wells.
