New venue for Durban Club

Peter Charter writes:

Four of us sussed out the Welcome Chair in the Musgrave centre Wednesday Evening.

Consensus seemed to be that, although the cost of “game sustennance” was about double the beach, it was a far more civilised and pleasant place to play. Also, over Easter, the beach-front is a bit chaotic. Having a full bar is pleasant! The only problem is that it is not open Tuesday evenings, and Wednesday is a problem for Peter Strauss, and he has been playing regularly.

But, for the next few weeks, we will try it out. There may be a problem in the long term if it becomes more popular and it becomes generally known that they are open evenings, but we can face that if and when it happens. I checked with the bosses and they were very happy for us to be there – there
was plenty of space. It is in a bit of an “oxbow lake” out of the main stream at Musgrave.

So, for the next few weeks.

Welcome Chair, Adjacent to Stuttafords, Musgrave Centre level 2 – (Under
CNA, Over Pick ‘n Pay)
6:30 – 7:00 pm


Bad news is that our new venue at Musgrave, which was lekka, has decided not
to stay open evenings. Owner assures me that it was in spite of our presence
and not as a result of it. She says we are welcome to squat at the venue
but there will be no pub/restaurant.

I suggest we reconvene back at the North Beach Steers on TUESDAYS at 6:30pm
again until we can find another venue – at least the bedlam of the North
Beach Easter will have abated.

    I’d update the post if I wasn’t stuck with a Stone-Age browser: the Welcome Chair is no longer opening in the evening, so club meetings are back at the Steers on North Beach for the foreseeable future.
