Around the leagues July 2007

The (unfortunately) incomplete table below gives some information about season 2006/7 as gleaned from various sites. I cannot guarantee that I have made no transcription errors, nor that I have correctly interpreted what I have seen.

Champions: Have the bragging rights for the next twelve months. Some leagues name rather than number their divisions - hope I have correctly identified the top one.

Division 1 boards: The number of boards in a top division team of the league.
It seeems fairly common practice for lower divisions to have fewer boards than the top ones.

Division 1 teams: The number of teams in the top division.

Total teams: total number of teams in all divisions. Hopefully I have avoided adding in rapidplay and handicap leagues here.

Finish: a: adjournment, f: Fischer, j: Adjudication, q: Quickplay.
Corresponding capital letters are used for the default option.
A(J): Despite default option being adjournment, under certain conditions either player may part way through the game explicitly or implicitly demand adjudication.
I'm quite willing to believe I've misinterpreted the rules in some cases, particularly where rules like 'The rate of play is all moves in 90 minutes. No game may be adjudicated before 35 moves have been played.' are given.
In some leagues the style of finish varies from division to division. I've tried to indicate what happens in division 1. A vague rule of thumb seems to be that the lower the division the more likely quickplay finishes are to be used.
