We currently have a team playing in the Avison Shield Correspondence tournament-Peter Hulse, John Fletcher, Bill Ward, and Srinivasa Muthukrishnan.  Last year we came a creditable third.  There were some very strong teams.  Worksop won it in the end.  This year the teams are even stronger and there are two divisons.  This is the state of play at the moment: http://www.iccf-webchess.com/EventCrossTable.aspx?id=26406  Worksop have the British Ladies Correspondence Champion playing for them, the Yorkshire Puddings(!) have Correspondence IM Bill Lumley who is on the point of probably becoming, at least, joint British Champion, and then there’s Matthew Webb playing for Bradford who did very well in the major open at Pond’s Forge.  Here are two very snappy wins from Srini and Bill and some boring draws by me.
