BACKPACKER BACKGAMMON BOARDS
In England gambling is still technically illegal in Public Houses unless you have a license to do so. And a Magistrate was not about to grant me a license to do so in a Youth Hostel and a Pub. Also I didn't want the "I've never played Chouette Backgammon before" Players to get fleeced.
So the Chouette Corner would be playing for my invented and printed "Backpacker Backgammon Board Bucks" and each Player was given 32 BBB Bucks.
There would be a Chouette Trophy for the Player that could show me the most Bucks at the end of the weekend.
The Chouette Corner opened on Friday evening after dinner and was open (expect when large Tournaments were starting) until Sunday late afternoon.
Uldis could be found manning the Chouette Corner at most times (in fact it seemed to be wherever he was) and I regularly heard him explaining Chouette procedure to other Players.
By Sunday late afternoon Grant had a goodly wad of BBB Bucks but Uldis had a wad a lot thicker than Grant's and there were a lot of high value bucks in there too, so it was Uldis who took away the Chouette Trophy and a Chris Bray book.
