As you can see, we’re now back online, but I’m tired and still jetlagged. My body clock seems to be still completely out of whack – waking up at 3AM and never managing to fall back sound asleep. I can barely bring myself to post something. Still we must endure, I suppose.
Waiting in my mail box last Sunday was, sure enough, the latest NSWCA newsletter. Exactly as our anonymous correspondent informed us – that latest issue was completely rubbish, full of old stories, embarrassing layout and utterly a waste of paper. When are these guys going to learn that most of their members have internet access these days? Stop wasting paper and simply publish everything online. Oh, but blimey, the website is equally laughable!
That’s our quick little swipe for the day. Someone who just can’t seem to control himself is our old mate Matthew Sweeney. Problem is this guy runs the risk of not being able to do anything else but taking pot shots at the chess politicos in this country. He’s even got a new blog for this purpose. Only Caissa knows how long this latest venture will last.
In Mr Sweeney’s second entry, he reports of a special little meeting that took place at the Sydney International Open.
“Several head honchos sat in a room and decided that a proposal by the Australian stalwart Peter Parr might have legs.”
If true, this is just extraordinary! After weeks of stonewalling it now appears that the ACF (and I guess the NSWCA) have at last taken a sniff of reality and finally knocked themselves silly in their collective heads. Well, we can at least hope and pray that this is the case.
Guys, guys – pick up the bloody phone, send an email, be pro-active and work with Mr Parr. How hard is that?
