Colin Lyne has successfully defended his title for the third year running, scoring 5/6 for the second year running. Congratulations to Colin for another brilliantly played season, could he make it a fourth consecutive title next year? Or will Marc finally overtake his nemesis and claim the title for himself? We'll have to wait and see.

I am always looking for members willing to take on the TMLC challenge. If you would like to participate in the 2021-22 TMLC please let me know so I can add you to my list. Please bear in mind, you will be expected to play any of these games by post if required, as this is a postal tournament (but individual pairings may choose to play by email or webserver).

 

For current players, this is your first reminder that the adjudication date for this year’s TMLC is the 1st of September. All your games either have to have a confirmed result or an adjudication claim lodged by the 15th of September, otherwise you risk being scored with an automatic loss. Please see rule 6 in your pairing notice for further information.
