When will the shirts, hoodies, caps and branded vacuum mugs go on sale?
Bad news - Michael Farthing is in charge of the shirts. :shock:

You may need to paste these links into your browser if you're at all interested ...
I have tried. They don't work for me.

I found that when I clicked on the link I get a '404' error message but reloading the page then solved the problem

Have to try harder, David ... what about right-click > Open link ...

For me, clicking also doesn't work, and reloading didn't help either. I had to right-click and 'copy link' and paste the link into a browser. It then worked. The differences are interesting. Can you remember roughly which year that change took place, Andrew?

From the older to the old? Roughly October 2015 when Phil Ehr was bid farewell ...

Thanks to Michael for explaining that the squares are columns d to h and rows 6 to 8 (thus they should always appear right justified on a page) but does anyone have an explanation of the disposition of the red squares?

I have decided that I rather like the new logo (even the still slightly mysterious squares), so congratulations to Mark and those who approved it.

Mark, I never did get a reply to my question as to whether the other logos were included in the planned "rebranding" or not .

If not included then its just a new logo and the start of brand confusion

:lol: :lol: :lol: Ok Michael I think you ought to get onto the shirts Bronze Silver Gold Platinum Members and ECF to add shirt size to their next membership list update.

My chess colleagues appear to have got a bit larger over one season or have I shrunk? :D :D :D
