Re: Holloid Plastics Press Release : January 2009

John It's all bo**ocks. BLESS!!!! Reganites, they can't believe anything. But if the Reganites did sit down and think about this statement they would come up with one small but interesting flaw.

Re: Gone missing

Hey Charles pleased to hear your good news - as you say chess isn't everything. Hope your avatar isn't a true reflection of your current look - otherwise a warning is probably in order. Thank you, and the avatar is now changed too. I think chess is a great world to be in, and the people in it do br...

Re: Gone missing

Hi Ernie and Carl You are right i'm not around posting at the moment, there is reasons behind this back nothing to do with the ECF.

Re: ECF Manager of ICT

Just for the record I have had a private discussion with Duncan last week before any announcement was made and although I don't agree with all the points and ideas up for debate at least we should move in the right direction if he takes up the post? A movement in any sort of direction would be nice...

Re: Perfect Weather for an away match to Muswell Hill

There has been very little snow here :cry: We have plenty and more to come tonight. I even did the unthinkable and cancelled the Training session up at the Latvian Club. This is seen as very odd as the Monday night sessions have been on since the start of 2007 and haven't missed once (not even for ...
