To the best of my recollection, I haven't published other disputes/appeals in the recen...

Re: 2016 draw

Lets all calm down here; everybody involved with chess in the UK are volunteers, so we don't need I volunteer more than others comments The arguement here is that Mick is voted in as the voice of Manchester Chess by the AGM, all his comments and views are voted by the clubs of Manchester, therefore...
