Re: My Strange County Chess Problem

Hi Joey. Is this flips of the coin that is doing it or do you know the board colours before hand? (I saw someone mention the toss). The Edinburgh League has the home team White on boards 1, 3 and 5. Which is OK unless you have 2 nutters in the team I once captained who always wanted Black and explai...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Paul. I mentioned somewhere on here that the female rule should scrapped as the girls should get in on merit. Does that not count as a contribution under Post Heading. Female Player Rule. Also noted that between 27th Nov 2009 and 7th of Jan 1010 I made no posts. You however did. So your claim tha...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Paul.

"I think it's better for the forum to remain unofficial and thus a "free" voice."

These are your words posted on the 18th January.

A silly juvenile 'look at me" show off - yup that's me. You got me in one.

A Hypocrite......?

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Carl. Needed a Scot to answer that one, I'm English. a cockney. Right I have had a wee nibble from Clem Sreeves but the rest of them are fearing a Chandler wind up or me having a pop at them and are hiding. Perhaps I'm not the best guy to do this. (I reap what I sow). Been dying to have a tangle ...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Ola, A previous post on the Scottish board attracted little interest. I'll rattle their cages up here (I'm good at that) ;) and see if I can get yes's or no's (with reasons). But they have their own SNCL it's run very well and well supported and I fear the dates might clash. But I'll see what hap...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Alex.

Good point. Will do. Cheers.

Hmmm....

May have slight trouble as some of the good lads may not want to drop.

Ah well all the more room for the other lads.

(Unless can get new rule that new teams start off in div I) ;)

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Ola Yes so that hardly makes the 'Four Nations' (plus Guernsey) does it. It makes it the European + Guernsey National League. The EGNL. So two choices. We either stop inviting them (ban is such a terminal word) and send their appearance fees to British players (yourself as a resident is classed a...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Ola

Let me see:

I say:

"European players who do not live here..."

and you say:

"Speaking as a foreigner who's lived in the UK for 10 years now..."

Looks like we are both out of kilter.

Hi Keven.

Simple. So we call it the 4N + Guernsey CL.

Next?

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Alan. I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting the SNCL should be compared to the Euro National league (the old 4NCL now the ENL). Mathew must have misread my post and went off into the wilderness telling us the SNCL is not worth while him playing in. I doub t if this was a dig at the SNCL. I...

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Mathew. Yes the Scottish Website does have a lot of good information. It does not tell you anything about my personal circumstances or my health. And that is a matter I do not wish to discuss in an open forum. Thank you in advance for being so understanding. So to try and drag the discussion away...

You Sir are a Gent - getting quick losses out of players is like pulling teeth.

Re: Female Player Rule

Hi Mathew. "at the moment there isn't a huge amount of point in me playing, because there are not many strong players taking part." That had me laughing. You were stuck for an answer so you dived for the grading list. "Him I can play....him I can play...Him I can't play." Hilarious. I never asked wi...

Re: Are Chess Traps Really a Taboo

400 and out.

The last Corner was good, but in the last few months it's been getting rather
dry, tepid. Probably me getting old (59 in a few months).

Quit while ahead.
