A small but 'concentrated' group battled hard today over 6 rounds of 20'+5" chess. Richard Dare came 1st overall, with Roy Seabrook picking up the rating group prize for best U1800, Gary Judkins 1st for U1500, Peter Griffin 2nd in the U1500 and the surprise package was Kanchana Wansapura who was sharing the lead at one stage. He ended up with the Best unrated player prize. I am sure we will hear more about him in future events.

My thanks to the juniors who came along and put up a strong showing throughout the day.

Is the Dec event still on the Sunday - or is it moving to the Saturday as well?

I am probably attending a conference in the preceding week in Tauranga (will know for sure in another fortnight or so) so would be interested in playing on the Saturday.

Hi Tony and thanks for your interest. I can choose either day. It is a bit far away to think about it for now, but I will keep it in mind.

ta, Scott

Hi Scott,

Cheers, Tony
