    I thought non members were supposed to be able to enter club tournaments but it seems they are also members only?

    Yes, just a clever promotional tool to get you to shell out money.

    As opposed to relying on other people to fund the site because you're too much of a tightass?

    I must say that the Scotland club, club 58, is the most civilised, non subscribers are able to play subscribers and one of our members has even formulated a league for all members irrespective of whether they are members or not, if only the rest of the free world was as civilised. Our speciality of course is kicking the butts of those who fly the flag of St George, so if live south of the border to our great and wondrous nation, remember the largest concentration of Englishmen to reside in Scotland is Stirling, the fields of Bannock actually, and they are all six feet under!

    ..yes...if funds where a problem then make everyone pay..the site doesn't.... so crying about non-subs gets you nowhere..just makes you look daft.

    Hay I'm not the one complaining just advising and you asked why you cant play in these tournaments and simple answer pay up and help improve the site.

    It's your choice if you dont want to pay but as the old saying goes "nothing in life is free"

    Your right I was not complaining and do not reaaly care. It's just that the original message informing people about the clubs said that non-subs would be able to play in the tournaments so I thought it may be fun and joined three clubs. Now I get a few messages informing me that they are having a tournament and when I clicked on them to join it informed me that it is subs only. Now I gotta figure out how to get out of these clubs so I don't get anymore nuisance messages. I do not care that it is subs only I just wished they had not advertised otherwise.

    As you would expect of an englishman
    WRONG You can leave a club and/or be kicked from club
    WRONG You can be pure - Scots have pure loathing for the English
    WRONG He is not talking bull but instead is being lectured to in diahorea
