    NPCC newsletter

    I am absolutely enthused with the inaugural issue of the Club's newsletter!
    Michael Loh's excellent work includes amongst other topics, presentation of all latest Noble Park Chess Club's news, lovely photos, game analysis and a very informative interview with the Club's stalwart Domagoj Dragicevic!

    http://www.nobleparkchess.org.au/fil...etter01(4).pdf

    I look forward to read the second issue which will be presented soon!
    Excellent work Noble Park Chess Club!

    A very impressive presence of the Noble Park Chess Club in 2011 Dandenong's GameOn Sport and Cultural Day festivities.

    I went fishing early in the day and it was reallyh cold early in the morning so I had warm clothes on! Later on I had to suffer since we had a very hot day in Victoria, but the visit to the Club's stand more than contributed to me cooling down and actually having a great day of chess and meeting old and new friends!

    I was giving specific intstuctions by the gentleman at Yarraman Station: "Follow the track from the Railway Bridge and you can't miss it"!
    But me being me, when I reached the following position....



    I decided to discover my own shortcut so I ended up here ...



    As you might have noticed from my other photographic adventures I have an uncanny ability to discover water but unless I was ready to swim across, no chance to locate the festival grounds this way... So I had to go back!

    After some more wondering around delightful creeks and beautiful Greeves Resort locations ....



    the friendly face of my friend Michael Loh (Zach's dad) appeared as he was revealing the marvels of chess to some young enthusiasts in the indoor sports complex reception!



    Inside it was another story... Here is FM Dusan Stojic vs Zach Loh in the simul!



    Facing Dusan and Domagoj Dragicevic the participants did not have an easy task but they learned a lot from the experience and let's hope that they will join Noble Park Chess Club soon!



    In conclusion it was a great day. I met Mrs and Mr Stojic (parents of Dusan and Svetozar) whom I hadn't seen for a long time and Mrs Loh (Zach's mum)! They all looked great and enjoyed the day! On the way back, miles away from the venue, I also met Mr and Mrs Mijatovic who had taken out for a pleasant sunny Sunday afternoon outing their beautiful granddaughter!

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Good on you Noble Park.

    You have taken two of our Box Hill ideas and and are doing them well.

    You will notice the increase in membership although this may take time.

    Other clubs should do the same.

    JaK,
    Thanks for your kind words, especially the bit about "revealing the marvels of chess". I know the moves - that's about it . We were so caught up with meeting people and playing chess that we didn't take many photos. Space permitting, could we use one or two of your simul photos for our next newsletter?

    Like you said, it was a great day out - we had about approx 50 people had come in, taken flyers and been part of the simul in the couple of hours that we were at the Dandenong Showgrounds. Dusan estimated he and Dom had played about 30. We had great feedback also; a lady said "What an honour!" when we explained that she's playing the current Joint Victorian Champion.

    Just doing our bit to build chess awareness in the Greater Dandenong community. Our vision is to bring people of all ages and background together through the game of chess.


    Mike

    PS
    If you think the inaugural issue is great, wait till you see the April 9 issue. It is 60% done and we are very excited about it.

    Of course you can use my pics for any purpose you see fit! Actually if you PM me your email, I can send you a couple of more pictures from Sunday which I did not include in the report!
    Cheers and good luck!

    PS As I have already explained to Domagoj, I look forward for the time when I will be able to join the Club again!

    Starting at 3 pm increases my chances of coming down and take some pictures for the thread...
    In the picture two personalities from Noble Park Chess Club from their last night's encounter at the MCC:
    Domagoj Dragicevic vs Dusan Stojic!



    Apologies for not having another picture from your point of view as well Dusan but I came twice around trying to photograph you and you kept on covering your face with your hand! next time ok?
