Ronald Manila, executive producer of the Pinoy program for SBS radio, sent an invitation to yours truly to this weekend's Pinoy Fiesta Chess tournament in Rosehill Racecourse.
If you guys aren't doing anything this Saturday, then I suggest trotting off to Rosehill for some Filipino culture - food, music, beauty contests and chess. Non-Pinoy Aussies are most welcome but bear in mind this rather amusing requirement: "The tournament is open to all Filipino-Australians and non-Filipino Australians provided that they are endorsed by a Filipino-Australian."
Thankfully, we've managed to come to an agreement with Ronald. If you're not "one of us", just mention TCG and you're in!
