    North Shore Open Carpool spreadsheet

    There's one sheet for people who need a ride and one sheet for people offering rides.

    Do you need a ride to the North Shore open?
    Can you offer someone a ride to the North Shore open?

    I've seen this at other events but not at a chess tournament. Use at your own risk. It is flexible enough that it can be used by someone who isn't in AUckland as well as someone in Auckland. I've just set up the barebones. It can be prettied up.

    Please have a look. Have I missed anything?

    The event sounds Grand. Good luck to all the players.

    I predict a comfortable tournament win for Puchen.

    Where will the results be posted?

    The usual places (I assume). ie Results page on NZ Chess website.

    There'll probably be a summary/link to the results on the NZCF facebook page. Also an echo/copy on twitter + google+. I'll post links to these here so those of you using those can like/share it.


    ps just realised that last year's North Shore Open thread was the first time the tournament had a thread in here. link

    IM Puchen Wang won the Open; Paul Kamberi (of North Shore CC) won the B-Grade; 1st= in the Junior were Richard Meng and Beatrice Ang. I will put up the final Vega files when I get them (on the Results page) and there will be photos.

    Photos Simon or I took at the tournament
    Some of it quite dark due to the sunny weather (in relation to where I was). Sorry. should have been more aware of it.
    We weren't at the prize giving for Open + B tournaments. Hopefully someone else has pics.
