    RIP Roger Perry

    I am greatly saddened to learn that Roger Perry has lost his battle with cancer. He was a strong Otago Chess Club and later North Island player who played in a few NZ championships. He also represented PNG in an Olympiad. He and I were youngsters together at the OCC. RIP Roger. Many of us will greatly miss you.

    His funeral was held today at St John's Presbyterian Church in Wellington, a church at which i used to worship.

    See some condolences from many who knew him, including lots of chessplayers.

    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell
