Re: Div 3 North 2017 - 18

This pairing system would be used for the first 3 weekends and the option of doing so on weekend 4 would be kept as a possibility.

Re: FIDE account closed

Without looking anything up on the FIDE website or elsewhere: 1. How many of the Presidents of the five American Zones can you name? 2. How many of the four elected EB members from the American Continent can you name? I wonder how many members of this Forum could name any Zone President. Out of the...

there isn't anything to stop FIDE opening a UK bank account
Have you tried opening a UK bank account as a non-UK person/entity recently? It is not easy.
I opened an account for my then 11 year old daughter, and an account for my new limited company last year; neither was easy :lol:

Re: Div 3 North 2017 - 18

That will be interesting, yes :) What are the rules on refusing promotion like? Its a definitely a running possibility for the odd team. I reckon losing a match or 2 would be the efficient way :lol: I'd expect Gonzaga, 3Cs 2 and Shropshire 1 to accept promotion if they finish in the top 2 If, say, ...

Re: Div 3 North 2017 - 18

Looks like a 4 team race for the 2 promotion spots

I wonder if we will see Gonzaga v Shrops 1 and Bradford A at weekend 4, with 3Cs 2 playing both too, leaving Gonzaga v 3Cs 2 to the final weekend
