Re: Finals 13 July 2019 @ Kettering

It was kind of a shame Devon was forced out of the competition, even though I've been on the recieving end of many Devon victories I'd have still give them my support for such a great achievement of a 'proper' minor county making it to the final. Forced Out ? They chose to be the only team not to p...

Re: Final weekend (2013-14 season)

On the subject of final weekend 4NCL I will be there to bumble around, mess things up and generally arrange fixed matches as part of a Far East betting coup whilst drinking in the Triumph Bar ...and am probably available to play should anyone be short and need to avoid defaults ... :lol:

Re: Final weekend (2013-14 season)

I generally do not bother to comment in here but as Mr Crunch has called in to question my frankly appalling captaincy down the years enough is enough ...read and copy because it will no doubt get removed. Firstly ...I started Pandora's several years ago with 7 players and we have fought our way int...

Re: Rule 10.2 (a) AGAIN then

Surely the crux of this whole mess is sportsmanship ? I hope I am never desperate enough to try and snivel my way out of ANY chess match by claiming 10.2 ... Even to the point in a rapidplay a few years ago when I was Queen for minor piece up in a somewhat blockaded position and my opponent clearly ...

Re: Hotels - Full Again

It really is about time that the 4NCL rate should be paid in full when booked and non-refundable to stop the wanton overbooking - we have several players without accomodation again so I will have to book twin rooms for the next 3 weekends with local Holiday Inns but best prices for them are non refu...
