Off to the Championships

Folks, I'm flying north tomorrow to pay a visit to the Aussie Championships in Brisbane. I'm looking forward to it. It should be good seeing some familiar places you see, perhaps, only once a year. And on Friday, I think I'll put my name down for the lightning. With all those young sharks up there - it'll be tough.

But what I'm really after are a few photos to add to the Closet Grandmaster's collection on flickr. So, do look out for those. And, if I get particularly lucky, we could return with some stories.

So see you up there or when I get back!

Enjoy your time in Brisbane, Amiel. Its great to see that the Brisbane Championships are running smoothly, which is to be expected when you have the likes of the highly respected Graeme Gardiner running the show. Its much needed by Aussie chess after that disgraceful sham at Mt Buller (Bullcrap). Speaking of Bullcrap, George Howard must be laughing all the way to the bank now that he has all that money that rightfully belongs to other people, what with the CDs + Juniors + Karthick + others, and knowing that the good Aussie chess folk will do nothing about it. In my view the police should be called in to bring Howard to justice and either make him pay up or lock him up.
