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. :clap:

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)! :lol:

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 :clap: (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

:hmm: 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........... :hmm:

Being a Mexican, I am not familiar with George ... what is his background and why was he offered the post as patron? I have been thinking for some time that my club would benefit from a high-profile patron ... perhaps a patron-saint ... ;) ... anyway, I think having a club patron gives a club an increased profile and lends itself to increased publicity/marketing opportunities.

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 :doh:
