00:00 - 00:03The 2015-16 Four Nations Chess League is now complete.
00:04 - 00:05All four divisions have finished for the season.
00:05 - 00:07The league tables are confirmed.
00:08 - 00:12All promotion and relegation issues are decided.
00:12 - 00:15They are available online.
00:17 - 00:19About time,
00:19 - 00:21Midland Monarchs need to be at the central venue.
00:24 - 00:26My Fuhrer Sir
00:27 - 00:28Four of their wins
00:31 - 00:33weren't included so
00:34 - 00:36no promotion.
00:53 - 00:58Can anyone in favour of the 16 team format leave the room.
01:13 - 01:15How could this happen?
01:15 - 01:17The team that dominated in the 1990s
01:18 - 01:23That won three league titles
01:25 - 01:28That gives opportunities
01:29 - 01:31to more juniors and women
01:31 - 01:34than any other team.
01:34 - 01:37How could they miss out on promotion
01:37 - 01:40despite scoring five match points more
01:40 - 01:42Sir, Warwickshire Select finished second,
01:42 - 01:46They only scored 50% over the season,
01:46 - 01:48Sir, they had more match and game points,
01:48 - 01:52If other teams want to travel down south
01:53 - 01:54then let them.
01:56 - 01:57Better still, evict Guildford
01:57 - 02:00And make the league more interesting.
02:00 - 02:03Why wasn't I consulted earlier?
02:04 - 02:08Why did they copy the French?
02:08 - 02:13Why did they abandon the round robin
02:14 - 02:16when we could win
02:17 - 02:21as in 1995, 1997 and 1998.
02:27 - 02:29If they had listened to me
02:30 - 02:34they would have kept the old format
02:34 - 02:36and we would be promoted.
02:41 - 02:42What a waste of a season
02:43 - 02:47What will we do now?
02:48 - 02:53Will our players be tempted away?
02:54 - 02:56We'll have to try again next year.
02:56 - 02:59But who knows how many wins
03:00 - 03:02won't be included then?
03:04 - 03:07Don't worry dear, there's still the northern league.
03:14 - 03:16There's no other choice,
03:19 - 03:23if we want to get to the top divisions
03:25 - 03:26leagues one and two
03:31 - 03:33where we can play against titled players
03:40 - 03:46we'll have to register for Division Three again
03:46 - 03:49and commit to four weekends
03:53 - 03:56at Wokefield Park.
