Dear Readers,

Yesterday marked the end of my school chess seaon (albeit there is still Nationals) of my former junior days. Unfortunately we abdicated the trphy we had kept for 2 years to Sydney Boys, losing 3-1. But luckily I managed to create a nice win after a zugzwang sequence to save my team from an embarrassing 4-0 loss.

Now as the Metropolitan chess seaon ends and my seniors Kevin and Peter graduate, I am now assuming the position of NSB chess captain from 2011 onwards, with the responsibility leading young stars Oscar and Jack as well as the eager year 7s just beginning their flight to their own chess adventure and success. Not only that, next year I'll be a senior high school student, and thats just not fun... :(
