Tans v S Shields B

Posted by Tim W on February 14, 2020

What a strange evening. As I opened the front door of the Parish Hall, the alarm went off.
Absolutely deafening, but nobody in Corbridge seemed too concerned.
After a few phone calls, the caretaker arrived and turned the alarm off, but not before I had
had gone into panic mode.
Many thanks to Tim Barmby & John Morgan who both played at short notice.

Christmas rapidplay

Posted by fellman01 on December 23, 2019

This event was held on Thursday December 19th, with 12 club members participating. There were 5 thirty-minute rounds, with the time divided between the two players on a handicap system, meaning that in some cases the weaker player had 27 minutes and the stronger one 3 minutes. Nonetheless the cream still rose to the top, with the 3 strongest players all finishing on 4/5. Tim Wrigley got the nod over son David and Peter Crichton by virtue of some arcane information on Peter’s pairing programme, thus avoiding the need for an Armageddon play-off. Well done, Tim!

NCA Rapidplay

Posted by northman on December 9, 2019

Tynedale were well represented at the NCA Rapidplay help in Forest Hall yesterday. Jonny, Dave H and Peter participated scoring 3/6, 2.5/6, and 2.5/6 respectively. Jonny (still ungraded) and Dave H (graded 99 but who came agonisingly close to scoring 50% against opponents with an average grade of 144) deserve particular mention for their efforts. It was an open event with a wide range of abilities playing in the same section which was highlighted by Peter meeting opponents graded 35 and 211 in consecutive rounds.

Dec 12th – Meet in the Dyvels

Posted by Tim W on December 7, 2019

12 Dec 2019 is election day, and Corbridge Parish Hall is not available to us. The home match against Gateshead will take place in The Dyvels. The room allocated is not big enough for anything other than the match. The pub have indicated that will be happy for members not playing in the match to play elsewhere in the pub.
