The Scottish Draughts Association.
It gives me great pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all players and everyone with an interest in this ancient game, which has served so many in Scotland and the wider world.
It was often the only means of mental solace and distraction from the tedious duties that
upon the ordinary man in the course of his often relentless mundane employment.
I use the male reference as this was mainly the case, but a new dawn has broken and many ladies have made huge strides, metaphorically of course, across the damdrod. Indeed, as the game enters an unforeseen phase and is now an established olympic event in the mind sports section, the equal opportunities this presents to all, when added to mental health benefits derived by the player, a never-before opportunity has arrived.
good luck and may pleasurable enjoyment accompany all who choose to embark on this mega-game.
