Martin was my earliest and most consistent encourager/exhorter. I hope the event goes fantastically well :)

On all Martin's score sheets he would put IM Sims when he played

Just letting you no due to lack of entries this tournament my no longer be class one and the prizes will be changed dependent to entries.
sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thanks Mark

Looks like Very poor showing for this event and only 10 players guess this makes things hard for our club but never mind the risk of running class event
I wonder if it was not a class event would that help or if it was unrated and no extra fees would that help at the moment this event has made me feel very low
since this was going to be for Martin Sims.

Sorry to hear that :( It was a worthy idea to honour IM Sims.Agreed and hope the event can still occur. Come on Kiwi residents - enter! Martin is very much worth honouring in this way. Juniors he coached and encouraged in Dunedin include Tony Dowden, Tony Love, Corres GM Michael Freeman and Roger Perry.

Congratulations to Ben! Also good to see such a good result for Martin, who I first knew in our school days when he was in Timaru.
