    Death of Joe Tarnawski

    Hi All
    The notice of Joe Tarnawski's funeral on Tuesday June 8 at 12 noon at The Gap is attached. Everyone from the Chess Community is invited to attend if they wish.
    In a lovely gesture, the family is asking that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made instead to the Queensland Women's and Girl's Chess Championship.
    Joe is well remembered by once beating GM Kotov in a simul and for his great blitz chess by many of my generation and older!
    Please pass this notice on to anyone you think might like to attend.

    Regards Mark C Stokes 0431 419 136, President. Chess Association of Queensland.

    David Esmonde

    David Esmonde is a FIDE Arbiter and Webmaster for the Australian Chess Federation and the Chess Association of Queensland. His company Aunix, hosts these websites as well as those of the Brisbane and City of Redcliffe Chess Clubs.

    David’s arrival at a tournament is a very welcome and highly desirable event since he is likely accompanied by eight DGT boards, meaning that the top games will be broadcast live online and recorded on his AuNix LiveChess website.

    https://livechess.aunz.net/

    Having your games immortalised on AuNix must help to ensure the success of the tournament. It also provides a good spectator sport. Recently, he broadcast the Queensland Junior championships 2021.
    It was great to witness the juniors beating each other up for a change from the safety of my computer room.

    A valuable collection of mainly Queensland tournament games has been amassed since 2018. The tournaments include Queensland Senior and Junior Championships, Nell van de Graaff Classic, Aivars Gipslis, Peninsula Open, Gold Coast Open, Queensland Open, Bundaberg Open, GPS Inter-schools, Leo Wilkinson and Wendy Terry Memorials. All the tournament files are downloadable.

    David was Technical Officer for the 2020 Australian Schools Teams Championships the National Organiser being Hughston Parle, and with IA Peter Tsai as Arbiter. Four teams, Secondary Open and Girls, Primary Open and Girls, represented each state and the ACT. These were the winning school teams from extensive inter-school competitions involving thousands of students within each state and the ACT. Local organisers at each state and territory venue ensured that their four teams knew what to do.

    AuNix LiveChess hosted the event with which everybody seemed happy. The schools teams competition has been growing larger ever since its inception in 1998. Ordinarily, state teams meet face to face. Covid made interstate travel difficult so that an online solution was tried for the first time and was successful.

    https://sites.google.com/view/2020-astc/team-lists

    David has been a valued member of the chess community in Queensland for many years. In 1993, Graeme Gardiner and local chess players formed the Gold Coast Chess Club. Soon the first Gold Coast Open was held.

    According to Graeme, “Early organisers of the first Gold Coast Open which was held in the library at Somerset College included Jeff and Elizabeth Carmichael, as well as Bruce Harris and David Esmonde.”

    Current CAQ President, Mark Stokes: “I have enjoyed the role immensely, even though it has its ups and downs. But we have a fantastic CAQ Council with wonderful members like Andrew Fitzpatrick, Gail Young, Shaun Curtis, Bryan Moss, Hughston Parle, Eliot Soo-Burrowes, Martin Carter, Heather Richards and IT expert David Esmonde all giving up many hours of their own time to promote chess. I am honoured to be their President.”

    David became unwell while playing Mark Stokes in the last Peninsula Open. Their game on AuNix Livechess is still shown as being "live" as is David, I am glad to report. He expects to be playing again soon.
    We all wish him well.

    Ian Murray's Queensland Chess News Magazines 1987 - 1996

    Ian Murray produced from 1987 to 1996, forty issues of the quarterly, Queensland Chess, the main medium for disseminating the chess news at the time, under the auspices of the Chess Association of Queensland. His many contributions to chess at the state and national levels have been acknowledged by his award of the Purdy Medal for Chess Journalism in 1992 and the Koshnitsky Medal for chess administration in 2000.

    At 81 years, Ian recently assisted the ACF by organising the Olympiad Appeal. Lately, he has scanned all forty of his magazines and offers them here as a valuable record of the time and for your enjoyment.

    Additions to the CAQ Queensland Womens and Girls Champions Honour Board.

    From Ian Murray’s magazines and from the Australian Women’s Chess League Bulletin, Volume 8, Number 4, November 1985, edited by Evelyn Koshnitsky, a few more of the missing entries in the CAQ list of Womens and Girls State Champions have been found.

    According to the AWCL Bulletin, Myra Cook was the first Queensland Womens Champion in 1970. The event was not held again until 1980 when Myra donated a “beautiful shield which is now gaining a little history itself”. The 1985 Womens Champion and also the Girls Champion was Andrea Terry, daughter of Clive and Wendy Terry.

    Thanks to Gary Lane and Kerry Corker for providing the AWCL Bulletin.

    Janeen Solomon won the Womens title in 1989. Boglarka Remenyi won in 1993 and possibly she won the Queensland title in earlier years since she was joint Australian Girls champion in 1990 with her sister Barbara, J King and G Grbovac and was outright winner in 1991, according to the ACF website. In 1994, Boglarka was joint Australian Womens champion with Narelle Szuveges, Liz Ports and Lee Fraser. There is an article about Boglarka, the Paediatric Cardiologist, at:

    https://www.facebook.com/ROMACFRIEND...3576481074717/

    In 1994 Alia Zile was Women’s champion with Shiloh Norris Girl’s Champion. In 1996, Connie Constantinou was Women’s Champion with Kimberley Orth Girl’s Champion.

    The 2021 Queensland Womens and Girls Championships
    Starts: October 16, 2021
    Ends: October 17, 2021
    Location: Loreto College, 415 Cavendish Rd, Coorparoo QLD 4151, Australia
