You are getting a few years ahead of yourself there. It may depend where you play, but digitals with or without increment are still in a minority. That's in Leagues that don't have adjudication or adjournment. Adjudication and adjudication aren't as dead as you might hope.
Roger, the few years is approaching and chess at tournament, league,junior and club level has definitely changed.

Ah Gareth you see the sales. I see players hovering their hands over the clocks and picking out the analogues :-(

No Michael, I see progress, and for the last 3 weekends approx 450 children at each of Oldham, Bristol and Camber Sands all using increments, someone else was there for any sales.
