[X-ray straight to Ray]
Not long ago there was some reunion activity involving Ray at Oxford, or maybe Cambridge. I really couldn’t fully decipher who, what and where, but a few of the Brits on Raymond’s <CG> page made comments. Some of which follow (some intervening posts have been deleted):
|Feb-26-15||offramp: <MissScarlett: <Ray, do you (or anyone) know when this year’s Oxford v Cambridge chess match.> Wot?
<The internet seems to have no info.>http://chess.soc.ucam.org/ >Thank you!
I did see that, but the location was a bit vague:
<5. 133rd Varsity Match: 1st Varsity team (07.Mar), location: London>Big place, London. I think it’ll be at the RAC on Pall Mall.
||MissScarlett: You mean, like it has been for the past few years, at least? After all that, are you actually intending to go?|
||offramp: <MissScarlett: You mean, like it has been for the past few years, at least? After all that, are you actually intending to go?>Erm… Are you going?|
||ray keene: Varsity match is at RAC Pall Mall Saturday March 7. Starts around noon. I have written pieces with the info for The Sunday Times, The Times and The Spectator.|
||offramp: I am there right now. In the St James Room. I’m wearing the gold and red Middlesex tie.|
||MissScarlett: I’m the big black guy sitting right behind you.|
||offramp: Michael Francis Stean was looking well.|
||MissScarlett: How was Ray looking?
The last post contained a link to a rather out-of-focus picture of Ray, perhaps a selfie? (BTW- I’m using the familiar Ray, which is a bit informal. I hope Raymond, err, Mr. Keene doesn’t mind). Here’s the original picture:
I must say that I’m rather pleased with the results.
