First World Tiddlewinks Congress

First World Tiddlewinks Congress

Correspondence: Organising Secretary First World Tiddlywinks Congress Christ's College, Cambridge, England.

Dear Sir/Madam,

You are no doubt aware that Tiddlywinks is becoming a worldwide sport, and naturally as in any growing and virile activity there are several minor differences regarding the mode of play.

If this promising pastime is to progress to its rightful position as one of the world's great games we must reconcile these minor differences and formulate a standard set of rules.

As the World Champions we, at Cambridge, feel that we should give the Lead, and so we cordially invite a member of your Tiddlywinks Club to represent your University at the First World Tiddlywinks Congress to be held here in Cambridge on June 11th and 12th, 1958.

We appreciate that in some cases the expense entailed in attending this conference may be sufficiently exorbitant to prevent your delegate from being present. If this is so we would be grateful for your Club's views and comments on the following:
1.The rules.
2.Organisation of international tournaments.
3.Advisability of approaching the Olympic Committee.
4.Design of a suitable stadium (drawings would be appreciated ).
5.The frequency and rendezvous of future congresses.
6.Any other comments.

Please find enclosed a copy of the rules used at Cambridge University.

We look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours faithfully, for L. M. M. Howells, B.A., and W. M. Steen, B.A., joint chairmen of the First World Tiddlywinks Congress.
