(160) Yorkshire chess displays

On the evening of May 12th 1999 I phoned Peter Cloudsdale to confirm that I would be coming to York on the 14th to give two lectures and a display the next day.

I then went out to post a letter and came back five minutes later to see that my wife was playing a video she had hired entitled Fairytale: A True Story.

A scene had been reached where a Yorkshire chess challenge was being issued to allcomers by a local champion.
