i think most of you will have noticed we all are having problems with a certain player's extremely slow play. players have been frustrated and showing it.some comments have also been made, altho i wouldn't endorse those comments in anyway, i can understand where they come from.some have been exasperated to the extend that they quit games halfway.very soon players will refuse to play in tourneys when this player is in .
i am writing this not to belittle anyone but to make an appeal to fellow eliters, please remember this player is a person with special needs, he is in a wheelchair and has multiple health problems,and i just learnt he is mourning his brother's death, who died yesterday.
i feel he needs us, i feel he needs the company we provide and the interaction he has with us may be his sole source of social contact outside people in similar conditions.
remember he may be very very slow and he may get euchred 3/4 times per game but he also is a very very polite person, havent seen him say a bad word to anyone.lets support the kindness and nobility in him and not lose our heads over slowness.
lets not win a 10 point game at all costs, lets win 10 minutes of happiness with a friend.
p.s: i just felt like saying all this, if its wrong of me to type this in club i apologize.
