Surrey have won

Post by Mike Gunn » Sat Jul 02, 2011 6:39 pm

...the County Championship for the first time in a very, very long time! (Surrey 9-7 Kent).

Congratulations to the winning team (and the winners of all the other sections, too.)

After missing the finals due to being stuck in a traffic jam a few years ago, some of the team left at 9.15 a.m. just to play safe.

Rather imprecise. Since Surrey last won in 1954, I make it 57 years,

Is that measured from the date of the match or conclusion of the dispute ?

:lol: we should not rule out Surrey lodging an appeal against their victory.

(Seriously, congratulations Mike, Susan)

Gulp. You're right, 1954. I knew it was 1954, but worked out 2011 - 1954 = 54. :oops:

Mathematicians are notoriously poor at arithmetic, it lacks variables. A. McCulloch B.Sc. (Physics & Maths)

Then again, even I might not count on that.

How long did the 1954 dipsute last; has it been concluded ?

Good to see Surrey doing something right, but most of the problems have been nothing to do with chess!

Congratulations to the captains, Graeme Buckley and Owen Phillips.

I see the Redhill players scored 5 draws out of 5, including two playing each other, and I suspect they travelled in the same car.

I've played alongside 14 of the minor counties contestants in club teams this season. 9 in the Beds team and 5 in the Herts team.
