Missing Clocks

Robert Milner has asked me to post the following:


Between the hours of 10 p.m. and 10.45 p.m. on Friday 21st October at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church, Ostler’s Lane, Cheddleton, ST13 7HS – the home of Cheddleton and Leek Chess Club – in the presence of ten people – a Viso Aluminium Case (cost price unknown, replacement price £82.91) containing ten digital chess clocks (cost price £689, replacement price £549.50) completely vanished.  No-one present seems to have witnessed their departure and no-one saw any other person enter the room from which they went.

Naturally the police have been informed and are looking into this matter and we would just like to warn all other clubs to take extra special care of their equipment in the light of this happening. If anyone anywhere can shed any light on this event or the present whereabouts of any of the eleven items described above, their devoted but grieving owners would be delighted to hear through Robert Milner (email on their behalf.
