TGIF

Years ago, on the last Friday of every month, our fearless director would distribute entries into a bidding contest: the current problems from the "It's Your Call" article in the latest Bulletin. He would score the entries, a time-consuming process to be sure, and award the announced winners with a free play.

I miss TGIF, and for years I have been thinking about putting this feature on the VBC web page.  It is finally here.

All entrants are welcome!  The top two local scorers will each win a free play.
