Champions with one round to spare!


I don't really want to ruin the suspense, but the fact is that HINDEN

can't be caught, leading as they are by 28 with one round to go.

They made sure of it by beating their nearest rivals, TELTSCHER,

by 18-2 in the penultimate round.

NATT overcame HILLMAN by 17-3, and are only 3 V.Ps off second spot.

They finish with a sit-out, though, so will have to hope that TELTSCHER

slip up against JONES.


A the other end, JONES, who drew 10-10 with SUSHI, may have a chance,

but we won't know until the remaining hanging match between BLACK

and GORDON has been played (next Tuesday).


For the Ascenders Prize, McGUIRE (13), JONES, SUSHI & MINICHAMP(10)

look the best bets, but of course we're also awaiting the result from

Black v. Gordon.






The last round of div 2 can only be describes as "undramatic"; I think

someone spilling a glass of wine may have been the most exciting event

the whole evening.


Everything stayed the same; many congratulations to RGBA for winning

the division; Gad Chadha, John Cox, Laura Porro, Adrian Orlowski,

Francois Picard and Ben Ritacca (these were the core members, although

Gad has used a number of subs over the season). They picked up £500

for their efforts and are invited to rejoin div 1 in the autumn.


They will be joined by team Have a Nice Day, Dimitre Stoev, John Vos,

Lynn Fry, Ian Pagan, Nick Simms, Mike Clack, Karen & Malcolm Pryor.

£300 for second place and promotion was their reward for a job well done.


The ascenders price of £200 was won by team Benedicts for collecting

31 V.P's from their last two matches.

It has truly been a pleasure to look after you all in div 2 this season;

I'm delighted to notcie that; not only have I received hardly any calls

for rulings, but I haven't even noticed anyone being bad-tempered at

any point!

Well done all of you for playing the game in the right spirit!

Hope to see you again in the autumn.
