    Great to have the Mentone club back!
    It used to hold a weekender ever year that was contested by some of our best players. Furthermore, Simon Rutherford - one of Victoria's leading players in the 1990s used to be a regular there.

    I agree!!!

    It's good to see traditional chess clubs coming back!

    BTW must have been the same Simon Rutherford who organized the Melbourne University chess club (Maths faculty) back in the '90s!
    I stand to be corrected if wrong!
    SSM? which dad is your mum?

    Zero trollerance!

    You could be right....I would think the club existed at MU already at the time of his enrollment though. I never played there..but I can recall watching spirited blitz matches between you and Alex Davies

    I don't remember that! If it was a spirited blitz match you might have the wrong guy - I was concentrating on winning the 1993 CCLA Qualifying A Tournament in 1993! I was only at Melbourne Uni in 1993 when Tim Anderson (also from Mentone, but now more into backgammon) was the main organiser (or at least the person who got the sets out). Simon Andersson who posts here sometimes was another regular at that time. I think Simon Rutherford was still in Year 12 in 1993.

    I did manage to be co-winner in the Mentone Open that year, but I had a pretty easy draw. I lost to Igor Goldenberg and won the remaining games, including a final round game against Simon Rutherford's father, David (who has registered for this year's event!). The other players with 4/5 all took points off each other; apart from Igor, perhaps they were you and Michael Kagan senior? Maybe Simon played, but I don't recall it. And the event wasn't really in Mentone but a few train stations closer to Melbourne.

    Yep from memory, that year was a big tie for first. As far as remember I've beaten Igor Goldenberg with Black in that event in Qc2 Anti-Meran but lost as white to Michael Kagan Snr. after Michael Sacrificed his queen for rook and piece.
