    I'll post this here as it's related to the girls' match. But there is already a thread for general Qld chess history.

    7) Junior Match, Queensland AUS - Florida USA
    ==========================================

    by Ian Murray 100231@compuserve.com

    An interstate telechess match with a difference - the two states were Queensland, Australia, and Florida, USA. Juggling time zones, play started at 5.30pm US EST July 29 (7.30am Aus EST July 30) at Patch Reef Park Community Center, Boca Raton, Florida, and Bond University, Gold Coast, Queensland.

    Full details are here.

    Thanks for that Patrick and Ian. Had forgotten that this report existed. Of our 8 players I think only GM Smerdon is semi-active. I haven't seen much chess activity from the others. I now remember there was a chess playing professor of IT at Bond who arranged the venue for free. I think we had a visiting Vietnamese IM or FM helping us with transmission. This is why I am trying to get as much of this into a spreadsheet and into a State Archive - I had forgotten a lot of this - and I organised it!

Was just going through the results of the Qld Junior Champs from 1998 and noticed that Shilo won the U/16 from Allinta Rose 2nd. Shiloh also placed 2nd in the U/18s to David Smerdon. You were playing your play-off match with GM Rogers for the Australian title at the same time as the Juniors! I don't know what Shiloh is doing but I did hear that Allinta went on to do law. Have not heard anything about Chathri. Chiara went on to become a medical doctor. Haven't heard about Anne-Maree Ireland.

    I can say that Kimberley Orth is now a vet in Canberra, Catherine Jackson is a GP on the Gold Coast, Sallyann Nicholas is a lawyer and police prosecuting officer in the Northern Territory and Penny Cooper is a partner with PWC in Perth. All four are married with children. (Incidentally Chris Page also works as a director with PWC in Perth, takeovers and mergers. He is also married with a child).
