    Yes, it was quite a good meeting.

    The Wise Man (who chaired the meeting) and Charles Z deserve the credit for getting all the positions filled with their prior behind the scenes lobbying and encouragement of "waverers" at the meeting.

    I'm pleased the Secretary position has now been filled as this should mean that I won't have to take the minutes of next year's AGM (in the absence of a Secretary I ended up taking the minutes of Tuesday's AGM)!

    I am looking forward to the St George Club Championship (due mainly to its divisional round robin format - playing players of around your own rating) which starts next week. It is certainly an asset for St George to have someone like Charles Z as the tournament organiser - very few people would be prepered to put up with the hassle of orgainising a comp like this (certainly I don't think I would ever organise a comp like this what with sorting out 50 odd players into 5 divisions, typing up information sheets and the draw, providing regular email result updates etc!).

    Hi Amiel

    Not sure what your post has to do with the St George AGM........nonetheless, I will answer your question...........you certainly have a good nose for sniffing out unusual incidents!

    Anyway...........for Amiel's benefit...... the Canterbury Rapidplay was originally supposed to be over 9 rounds (30 minutes per player per game - 3 rounds per night) on 7/2/05, 14/2/05 and 21/2/05. However, on 7/2/05 there was a blackout (power failure) at the Leagues Club which could not be fixed and so no chess could be played on 7/2/05!!! So, the Rapidplay is now a 7 round event (3 rounds on 14/2/05 and 4 rounds on 21/2/05 with 25 minutes per player per game - setting #2 on the DGT2000).

    Like I say, I am not sure what Amiel's post has to do with the St George AGM...........

    ACTJCL has a local pollie (from the wrong side of the fence from my perspective but you can't have everything).

    He is accompanied by media as a general rule, has mentioned us in the Hansard and shakes hands with lots of hearty enthusiasm
