In an announcement that is sure to send shockwaves through the ranks of the NSWCA ancien regime, Jason Lyons today said that he will stand for office in the upcoming annual general meeting next month.
For many in the chess community - the revelation is a welcome one. At last we'll finally have a councillor who is at once dynamic, an experienced organiser and an ex-Olympiad captain. In short, he knows what he's talking about.
I'm hoping to line up an exclusive interview. We're keen to know especially what his platform will be. But I am very interested to find out if Jason will be a lone wolf or will it be pack of revolutionaries?
