    The 2008 North West Regrading debate

    Were Timperley regraded wrong when they moved from 3rd section to championship section? They sent in a list of players and got moved, same as Dobcross did. If they decided to let them move through the sections naturally (like many people suggested should happen to dobcross) then they would have...

I was part of the original Dobcross line up from 2004, and had a fantastic time in the championship section. One by one people gradually left and the seats were...

    How do you cope with performance anxiety?

    the thing thats worked for me is something i was taught in alexander technique lessons. you basically lie on your back before you perform (like in a warm up room) and put a book under your head if you have one. put your hands on your hips and your feet flat on the floor, in line with your hips...
