gambit05 looks like a good catch Dewi, sign him up.
(you can bet you good eye that someone else will see this thread and approach him.)
He's German, never met a weak German chess player.
German players are privvy to all the Tarrasch books that have never been
translated into English, that is why they so good.
They had Tarrasch, we got Reinfield.
I had a German student (an IM) as board 1 for two seasons at Bells, great player.
And they never let you down. Rock solid team member.
One other thing.
Drop the captaincy.
Designate the weakest player as Captain so he can handle all the
red tape that preceeds a league match.
I always found this a pain and I know I play much better just turning up,
sitting at my board and getting on with things.
Or you can use a non-playing captain to do all the paper work.
