Cautious play there Mr Star,one applauds one

Mr Bear would like to see some action..as requested,I will oblige..

Finsbury Park

Now try and avoid spoon after thatlittle chestnut

Should imagine Twotter will be around shortly,the risk of spoon always attracts him

You're forgetting that we are under blarkle, though, so your spoon could become a fork - or if you aren't really careful, a knife!

I can hear the hushed silence now!

Stepney - an engine I'm sure Evening Star could tell us about.

Care for a piece of Manor House cake, gents?

Goodness me! Blarkle with a spoon conjunction in the third quadrant. One nips out for a pie and pint and everything goes to the dogs while one's back is turned. One can only shake one's head....

Let us see what can be done to repair the damage.

No damage done whatsoever.

I would have suggested Elephant and Castle... but I'm not in the game (have to wait for someone throws himself out with some careless move)

Fairplay, Gentleman, fairplay.

Cant give you 3-green on that move GD&L,

you overlooked the fact that Twotter has just made a move after threat of spoonage,

The only safe move in this predicament would be...

Post bank holiday recovery timetable facilitates this cunning ploy.

Chigwell

I threw a dummy on Roding Valley, dropped the shoulder and made a spurt for Chiggers. Tally ho!

See what you can do with that.

At length, but a tiddler none the less against my massive bulk (must lose some weight or will not have anything that fits).

Anyway, enough of my woes. We have some championship level MC to play here. Mind, the threat of barkle with a spoon conjunction is a distinctly unpleasant threat. In the light of where we are at, I would say Southwark should present an interesting challenge.

Indeed it does Mr Star but,it cannot be labelled 'championship play' until Mr Jordans realises that university is not the way to true MC enlightenment and graces these threads with a McCrae/Blackstock-3rd altercation-spangle!

Fair point Ex-M, although I do say give the lad a break as what he loses in finesse he makes up for in enthusiasm. Furthermore, at his age I was playing MC over the dinner table in halls (was a much more innocent age then today's undergrads), not mixing in at championship level play. While he may be out of his depth, he does try his best.

Anyway, with play on a knife edge, I would say Bank will present an interesting opportunity for a clever response.

The Fauntleroy-Shastakovich Addendum to Cribbits makes no distinction between championship and league play and can oft times be used as an alternative ruleset in cases of blarkle where overridden by decreasing line velocities while spoon is in play.

To that end

Northwood Hills by the Successive Fillibuster Pentangle manoeuvre. I think Churchill himself would be proud of the last dozen plays or so.

Mr Evening Star, I always did have a soft spot for the 9F. Long and perhaps a touch heavy - but bulky? No, I wouldn't agree. The most elegant freight locomotive I have ever clapped eyes on.

Play here is really on a knife edge! Thrilling stuff! And we're almost out of Blarkle - another 2 moves should see it, I think. Only spoons to worry about.

One has been summoned here by the powers that be,namely Mrs Trellis of the IMCC,to resurrect the standard of MC play on PPRuNe to what it should be.

I trust everybody is in reciept of the latest addendums and adjuncts to Cribbit's and Stovold's,not to mention the latest notations from the great Ernest Fosdyke himself.

I intend to bring play back to an acceptable standard,as governed by the IMCC and hereby invoke a gambit last used at the now infamous '57 Barnsley showdown of Snoad v Blockspittle (Maj) where Snoad was actually helped from the room by the emergency services,foaming at the mouth after a great utilisation of northern line diagonals taking into account the Sunday closure rules which were then in force.This he acheived by 'tweaking' the line velocity with a brave use of the 'boghammer redux'.

I shall now re-invoke said gambit and take play directly to

Straits of Hormuz

This gambit has potential to seriously affect the oil markets for some time to come.

The Boghammer Redux, better known as the Splattercrap Innuendo has led to outbreaks of war in some parts of the world, Mr Hammer. The only counter is, as noted in Stovold, a Helsinki Partition of the second cyclical intransigence, causing the outer ring stability to fluctuate between Nx and Ny in a decreasing phase shift pattern.

To this end

A bounder eh Twotter! We are more than capable of dealing with Pete Percussion Tool. The Carstairs Ascent will perplex his kind.

Well, it appears that we are out of barkle, although the risk of a spoon is still high. Under the Sunday Training rules, Bounds Green provides a safe rather then spectacular move.

9F. Long and perhaps a touch heavy - but bulky? No, I wouldn't agree
Agree with you about the 9F. Unfortunately, ones personal bulk and size is more like the big Chinese thing parked next door.

Im still awaiting Mr Jordans participation on said matter but...In order to ruffle Twotter's feathers,I regret that the next move available after this can only be the dreaded loop scenario....

Golders green

Increase the Lv chaps!

Not so fast, I think we avoid a loop using the sadly rarely used Harbingers Principle.

How does


Boston Manor

sound?

Talking

And, SRT, you know what is coming next. To be honest, RC rather forced your hand to use the Slopebladder Redundancy. However, as you well know, that allows me an inverse transfer and lateral shift to Mornington Crescent. Must say, reviewing the moves up to this point, that there was some pretty competitive play during this round that brought forward some quality play from all.

Next round beckons. Think Ealing Common should provide some pretty interesting play from the assembled experts...
