Anyway I was watching the Stebbings ending and I was flabbergasted when his opponent resigned - maybe it was time for dinner.

The icing on the cake would be confirmation of that IM norm. (If they award board medals, Stebbings may also have a medal of some sort).
Last year in Dresden England 1 were ranked 17th out of 71 teams.

They scored 12 points 6W OD 3L and finished 10th.

To finish 8th out of 36 teams with a score of 11 points is almost as good.
