[By S.D.C.] ’There is little to report this week of the doings of the local dubs. Tho Anderson Bay and St. Hilda Clubs are through with their tournaments and championship contests, and are holding combined meeting to-night at St. Hilda, when the prizes won will be distributed. A large attendance is expected, as a general invitation is given to all players to bo present. It is proposed to play a two-game match, sides to be chosen in the hall. As the presentations will take up a good deal of time, the match is to be concluded as near 9 p.m. as possible, so that tho social part of the proceedings may bo done justice to. 1 have been asked: “ What constitutes a move?” In reply, I do not think I can do better than quote from the standard laws on the game, as published in ‘ Lees’ Guide.’ Rule 11 reads; “After the pieces have been arranged, if the person whose turn it is to play touch one ho must either play ii or forfeit the game. When tho piece is not, playable he is penalised according to preceding law.” [Cautioned for first offence, and forfeits the game for any subsequent not cf the kind.] Rule 12: “K any part of a playable piece bo played ever an angle of the square r.n which it is stationed the play must be completed in that direction.” “Nailor” writes stating that the “huff” should be done away with altogether. This matter will bo dealt with in next week’s notes.
