An Away match in Hertford on the first dry night since the hosepipe ban was imposed. Big help having Adam Raoof (President: Middlesex County Chess Association) as our Guest Board 1 (maybe we should auction off this prestigious position on ebay in future). The Hertford Club in Bull Plain is a delightful establishment with appropriate beverages. The match was a 4-1 away win to Borehamwood which gives us 13 points from 11 games. One more match to go at Letchworth next week (At The Three Horseshoes public house – more amber nectar)
Some photos from last night available on http://www.flickr.com/photos/adamraoof/sets/72157629895937961/ – not recommended if you have just had a heavy meal.
On the journey home traversing the unlit country road, a deer was sighted as well as the other delights in the title (except the beer).
