Yes, the annual presentation is here upon us again. So I brought along a small camera to take pictures of the presentation. Unfortunately, being an absolute klutz at digital photography (aka. me fiddling around with some rather strange looking camera buttons), I was unable to take some of the presentations so if there are any photos of anyone I missed, I most humbly apologise.

A lightning competition was organised at the same venue. As is fast becoming customary, George Xie took first place. Vladimir Smirnov came in second.

Unrated moi (aka. me) participated in the event just for fun (I mean, how often do you get to play players who are clearly out of your league?) I had a really fun time, getting beaten the living daylights by just about every opponent. It's a good thing my torture only lasted 9 rounds. J/k.

Anyway, onto the presentation photos. My heartiest congratulations to all the winners!

I recognise George, Vasil, Norm and Bill from the photos. Perhaps someone could caption all the photos with all names and the awards they are collecting.
