    Great news, Mark. I love that the Knights name lives on too (thinking of Genesis Potini). You never know, I might make it over!

    I'm really excited to see the large number of tournaments available for everyone to play in. The morning tournaments means players can get in a lot of Chess per dollar spent on Leave, travel and Holidays
