Kirby 3 Vs HA3

Hi All,

First blog for a while. HA3 recently travelled to Kirby Muxloe for what was essentially meant to be a six board friendly. Despite not counting, Gordon was still able to give Henry a game on board 5.

This was Hector's first outing - he fell foul of a back rank combination on board 6. Graham U was a piece down, but was able to pull a win out of the hat. Bill, Richard, and Malcolm all won on boards 1 to 3.

We had friendlies in the Skittle Alley last Tuesday, and will be doing the same again this week.

I have fractured a metatarsal, however, and may have difficulty getting down.

HA2 Champions in Division 3

It was announced on the LRCA website recently that HA1 have succeeded in being promoted back to Division 1.

This Tuesday, HA2 needed to win their match against Ashby 3 in order to be sure of becoming champions.

I was first to finish. My game against Vic had looked pretty even, but things fell apart a bit for my opponent after the time control.
Pete then drew; The Grinder tried his best in a King +7P against King +7P end game, but they agreed a draw. Mike then took the whole point.
