Date Notes
6 April 2016 All the 36 available games of the 1970 Middlesex County Individual Championship 1969, a ten-player all-play-all won by Paul Timson ahead of a strong field. The tournament was played over the course of six months, between March and September 1970. I'm afraid I cannot remember who sent me the bulletin! I think it might have been Simon Spivack - whoever it was, many thanks.
