CUTwC and tiddlywinks news

Latest notices

The Relle will be held on Wednesday 2nd of December from 7:30pm.

Tiddlywinks is normally a game played with a group of people sociably standing around small tables in a nice warm room; this aspect of CUTwC meetings has obviously been rendered impractical by COVID-19 safety concerns. As such, for the last few months, CUTwC members have been "meeting" on Zoom.

With the new term, official CUTwC meetings will be continuing on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm on Zoom for the time being (see the mailing list for details), with individual in-person games happening when possible and allowed under official guidance.


Site news

Moved the logos to the main Club page.
There's a redirect, so old links should work. Feedback appreciated.
Navigation buttons now have a more plastic highlight, and div borders are now subtly polychromatic (to be hideous but also winks-specific).
Neumorphism (3D shadow) is an alternative (see the link to the home page), but doesn't work all that well on a light mat-coloured background; the section headers do use it, but it's very subtle.
Updated the front-page slideshow for the new President.
I'm a bit worried about it chewing cycles, so don't leave it open indefinitely unless you want a flat battery. I think it's done the recommended way, but animations are just expensive. The rest of the site is fortunately static.
Updated the results archive (back to 1996, with some gaps partly filled from WW).
If anyone can help fill in the gaps, that would be appreciated.

The ETwA National Singles (and ETwA Congress) has been postponed until the COVID-19 situation is resolved and it is considered safe for the community to play.
Watch this space and www.etwa.org, and please stay safe.
