Mr Wilding's fandangle can only be played at sunset and within the second quater of a new moon, that said, a truely valliant effort to cast spell and invoke play.

Ah Cyber Bob, you must be forgetting the Frostwold Inversion that permits a Wilding's Fandangle when temperatures drop below -6.282C. It's an easy beginners mistake to make. No harm done to the game.

According to the thingumy, I have 258 posts in this thread, with the last on 12th October 2010. I may be rusty but I do believe that I am permitted entry under The Veterans Totting-up System. As such, TV/TS rules apply . How rude!

Question

Given that is seems to be the blind leading the blind, one is forced to declare Forward Play Only (or risk spoon) therefore:
Since when has blond been spelt b-l-i-n-d?

No surprise that play has been delayed, but it invokes the 'Mind The Gap' codicil

I believe that in this situation I am entitled to use the Von Roofingveldt strategy, which was employed to great effect during his famous victory over Mrs.Trellis in the summer of '49. Therefore, we move onwards to

Marble Arch

Lovely piece of play, Carjockey. One is reminded of McKnocker in his prime (before the Leeds unpleasantness, obviously).

It seems the break in play has led to some excellent play which i shall endeavour to continue with:

I won't say I wasn't waiting for that...

Cheddar Gorge All-Comers, 1952. 27th hour of play in the tiebreaker, almost all of it on the Central and District Lines. Tudor Court Rules, Greives 2nd Edition the agreed authority, Mrs Trellis playing the Aga Khan... play just resumed after withdrawal of the lunch trolley...

Aga Khan (confidently): Marble Arch

Mrs Trellis: Colliers Wood

Aga Khan (after delay to consult pigeon entrails, and invocation of Throgmorton, of course): Goldhawk Road

Mrs Trellis (with restrained triumph) and in this latter instance, myself:


Barking (!)



Spine-tingling stuff, what? Ah, the resonances of the Great Game! And yet, there are those who resort to sky-diving for thrills...

RJM,

What is all this tosh about Aga Khan? Correct me if I’m wrong, (which of course I rarely am), but I seem to remember that the Aga overheated after his appallingly inept move to Goldhawk Road, resulting un-noticed by the assembled audience, in his self-induced slide into Spoons.

Mrs Trellis with her usual ignorance of the Rules, traversed directly to Barking, making the situation considerably worse and committing a Mauningstone Mudslide in the process. The International Adjudicating Committee, in its later deliberation of the debacle said, and I quote, “one of the worst travesties of play we have seen since yesterday”.

With due deliberation and considering that its Tuesday, I will move directly to: EAST INDIA DOCK ROAD

An unusual move, but what isn't unusual is the jejune twaddle preceding it, considering the source.

I will correct you Lukeafb1 (or should I say... never mind, enough for another day):

While not personally witness to the goings-on in the Gorge that day, certain aspects of the play have been vouchsafed me by one who prefers to remain un-named. To whit - the unfortunate overheating of the Khan was due to his being misinformed, possibly as a joke, that the long johns he wore beneath his rather elaborate traditional garb were de rigeur at MC tourneys that season. The wheeze being discovered as the hapless cleric began gasping for water, a group of Trellis supporters in the crowded stalls began a chant of 'Spoons, Spoons'. Not only ungracious, but entirely inappropriate. 2nd Edition Greives, I would remind you.

Your point about Mrs Trellis is well made, and with it I have no issue other than to say while the IAC was correct in adjudging Trellis' play a travesty, the actual move in question, oddly, was valid. The vagaries of Tudor Court Rules have been noted often enough. Heaven knows why the International MC Committee hasn't acted.

Sadly, the Aga Khan is believed never to have played another game at elite level...

But enough of painful reminisce:

Blackhorse Road

Shouldn’t that be BLACKLEG ROAD, RJM????

Your defence of the Aga Khan is shameful and reminiscent of Torquil Proot in the days before his incarceration on multiple counts of Fraud! I would also point out (for those uninitiated in the Rules of Play) that Fanshaw never declared anything of any import, due to his brain having been addled by over indulging in Mescalin!

Those being the facts of the case, BLACKHORSE ROAD OVERRULED and we’ll proceed, at the gallop to……PINNER GREEN

I will admit to the depth of your knowledge of the game, Lukeafb1. The journeyman, even the ordinary tournament player, would have let that declaration through unremarked. I took a risk; I was caught.

That Fanshawe acquired his infamous cactus still from one 'T. Proot, Purveyor of Gentlemen's Requisites' in Tijuana is small consolation.

Further, I accept the Blackhorse overruling, but add as a precaution that Spoons or Knid in consequence is specifically barred within three moves of Goldhawk Road. Tudor Court again, old chap.

Shadwell


with all speed.

Ah! A move with no discernably under handed ploy, RJM. And so, in the newly prevailing spirit of the contest, I will take a small hop to UPNEY, Northbound, obviously.

...Leaving play reversed on all even numbered platforms.

One well remembers the Aga Khan's embarrassing meltdown. It's all very well wearing long johns as prescribed in Tyrwhitt's Rules of Play, but it was somewhat unkind of Mrs Trellis to mention the ferrets. No doubt the penguin has recovered its sanity by now, although the chandelier and the fire extinguisher are still MIA.

Just to keep the pace of play from slipping into the red quadrant, Milligna's Reversal to

SRT - perhaps you missed the report last spring, said fire extinguisher being discovered at

Kew Gardens (Platform 2)

We still await the Committee ruling, but it's a safe bet.

The next move, of course, rather depends on the route the fire extinguisher took....

It wasn't so much the chandelier that most attendees of the fracas recall, SRT, but the items of, ahem, intimate apparel with which it was festooned.

The fire extinguisher is believed to have made its way via

Burnt Oak

arriving there rather too late, of course.

Yes. Well there is obviously a little discord between Mssrs. RJM and Lukeafb1.

May I remind both of you gentlemen that the correct procedure for resolving disputes was established by Mrs.Trellis's late husband, the Rt.Hon.Thomas Tarquin Francis Nolan, who was affectionately known and is remembered as 'TTFN' by all MC aficionados.

Such was this man's fame and stature, he was recognised and acknowledged almost daily on the 'Jimmy Young' radio programme, which was broadcast on 'Radio 2' (long wave) many moons ago.

But I digress, the dispute resolution procedure is recognised by the Commitee, who in turn categorically state that 'all parties involved in a dispute are not allowed to make any further moves until such time as the dispute is resolved'.

With this in mind I suggest that we progress without further ado to;

Leicester Square

Talking of TTFN reminded me of the unfortunate occasion when he was accused of abandoning Mrs.Trellis's younger sister, Gladys, in a state of high distress on platform 3 at Finsbury Park.

Of course there was absolutely no substance to this accusation.

So, oft we jolly well go to

Clapham Junction
