There are now just two weeks left for Nationwide Distribution to begin if this documentation released by Holloid is to be believed, chances?

7 days left otherwise even the Nationwide Distribution bit of the Holloid statement is a nonsense

well we now have the sponsors now asking for sponsors!!!!! I will think about the rest and comment later.

Always has been...

The more subtle changes are a timescale of 2009-2012 rather than 2011 and the mention of £100,000 of plastic being needed!

The less subtle alteration is to lose the "timescale" page altogether :roll:

The chances are actually quite good if you are allowed not only to move the goal posts but then to lose them somewhere :wink:

That change was too subtle for my quick scan through the documents. I thought you meant the change from "Every school needs 10 free chess-sets ..." to "Every school that applies will get 10 free chess-sets ..." and the removal of the statement that further sets could be purchased.
