Time Control: 60+10 (Fischer)
Colour (Odd Boards): Black
In this traditional end-of-year match, Redcliffe not only hosted but also put on beer + pizzas! (Our thanks, as always, to Mark Stokes and the Redcliffe crew.)
Finding that Redcliffe were missing several of their strongest players, Bullwinkle proposed splitting what would have been a 12-board match into two separate 6-board matches.
The first of these was for bragging rights, and featured Bullwinkle’s young guns (Team New Hat) against Redcliffe’s top boards. The second was more leisurely and saw Bullwinkle’s elder statesmen (Team Old Hat) take on a combination of Redcliffe’s youngsters and veterans.
Both Old Hat and New Hat contrived to play in alphabetical order.
