Upcoming events list added

Posted by Checker on February 21, 2011

And lo, there appeared in the right hand panel a list of local congresses in the next few months.

Clicking one of these will take you to a Google Calendar page from which is linked an entry form, if one exists, or whatever details I have. You may be able to view the full calendar from there, depending on your browser – Google doesn’t like Internet Exploiter 6. Clicking on the words “Next Events” will take you to the RSS feed page. There be dragons.

Tynemouth team ranking update

Posted by Checker on October 12, 2010

Tynemouth had three equally-ranked teams in Division 1 according to the League Handbook, but it has now been decided that the Hobbits will be the highest-ranked team, the Trojans 2nd, and the Castles 3rd. This change was in effect prior to the Hobbits’ first match of the season at Gosforth tonight.

Northumbria Chess League archive for season 2010-11

Posted by Checker on October 4, 2010

What it says on the tin! At some point I’m supposed to be creating an Excel-based archive of league results, but that hasn’t quite happened yet, and so what you see here is a snapshot of the main league website as it appeared on 20th September 2011, right before I deleted everything to make way for the 2011-12 season.

Wherever you see “Posted by Chris W”, that’s me, Chris Wardle, the League Conductor.
