Pleased to see Ken Pow playing. Perhaps he still lives in Ashburton. Another of us from Dunedin.

Ken even still teaches at Ashburton College - he is actually the organiser of these events and is doing a great job.

Final results have been uploaded, naturally. There was a 4-way tie for 1st, but Ed Rains and John Sutherland are the joint SI Rapid champions (the other two players are not resident in the South Island).

U1900 prizes went to Ken Pow and Tim Rains and U1600 prizes went to Martin Rademacher and Ross Black. The junior/U1600 prizes went to Jessica Pelayo, Jialin Guo and Daniel Clarke.
