Re: JUNIOR 4NCL

Why is it again, a post about something promising and helpful to our juniors is being ruined by something political and petty. There is just too much nonsense out there. Why can't people just stop faffing and moaning about things and actually do something useful like actually HELP the juniors? Now ...

Re: Off Topic Stuff

However, I think everyone should now be aware of this situation of a moderator using someone else's name in this forum. There is no logging in or hacking as you seem to suggest? If a moderator splits a thread apart into two as they are quite entitled to do then whoever is the first person in that n...

Re: Manager of British Championship

Carol The AGM has a full agenda, we don't want to be dealing with managers too, that's what we elect the board to do Having a new Junior Director, it seems sensible to give him time to find someone he wants to work with - obviously, Brazil trip was planned some while ago, so sensible that we wait u...

Re: Manager of British Championship

Hi Loz & David Thank you both for your quick responses . Sorry to add to the confusion but is a reluctant Manager a good Manager (ie staying in the post until a successor is appointed?).

Re: England teams for 2011 European Team Championship

Since people are so interested in what I say I'll sum up my views of the England teams in two words. Women's team: shameful. Men's team: disappointing. I am not a chess player. However, feel free to judge me at the end of my life on what I've achieved. Your'e right - you are not a chess player :D

Sabrina your manifesto comes from the heart but also the head. Having seen you in action we know you are more than capable to do the job, if we had a vote you would get it - good luck

Re: 2011 AGM: October 15th

Adam Raoof posted Phil Ehr's statement, I assume that Adam has Phil's blessing to post his statement on the Forum. I haven't checked whether Phil is a member of the Forum but hope that he is unlike the present incumbent. I would raise these points in relation to the statement posted:- Phil Ehr wrote...
