Wendy and I recently attended Nell's 95th birthday party with masses of friends and descendents. Nell wrote a book entitled 'We Survived' about how she and her young family were separated from her husband at the fall of Singapore, and survived the Japanese camp on Borneo for the remainder of the war. It was told without any hint of rancour towards the Japanese, and sold very well in that country.

Nell still plays chess every day, and we still hope to see her at this event. She says that her chess and her painting keep both sides of her brain active. It was only a couple of years ago that Nell drew with GM Gawain Jones in a simul.

Everyone at the party was urging Nell to aim for the big 100! She is such a wonderfully positive person that there must be a very good chance that she will.

I believe Evelyn Koshnitsky, widely regarded as the grand old dame of Australian chess also recently reached 95.

Good on them I say!

Yes, a very good book; Graeme was kind enough to arrange for an autographed copy for me, which I reviewed here (http://chesschat.org/showpost.php?p=209221&postcount=8).

Hi Graeme
I love this tournament and the extra fun you can create by trying to get a team of four players together with an average rating below 1500 ACF.
I hope Nell plays - I would love the chance to play her!

Cheers & beers Mark C Stokes

::P ) Brodie played a great tournament and deserved his great win in the 2010 Nell van de Graaff Classic- following up from his first place with Solo in The Day of Knights Tournament.

Now for the 2010 Wendy Terry Memorial on October 9 & 10 at Grace Lutheran College Mewes Rd Rothwell- can Brodie do it again????????:)

Congratulations to the Redcliffe Chess Club Team of Brodie McClymont,
Tony Weller, Mark Stokes & Michelle Cotton for winning the $300 bonus Team Prize - this extra prize is a great idea!

Thanks a million for a great tournament Graeme & Wendy and fantastic food and service from Fiona too!
