Please encourage the clubs in your country to join us for at least one of these enjoyable events. They just need to email me and tell me which date or dates they wish to play, then about 3 weeks before the event I will send them a zip file with everything they need in order to run a heat. I will email clubs with whom I have contact for other events very shortly to let them know of this exciting new Simultaneous Pairs.
