Mr and Mrs Maroroa Jones

For Chess purposes Gawain will remain Gawain Jones and I’ll be Sue Maroroa. I would dread to think the confusion it could cause, knowing FIDE and the hassle it may take. Ga did joke that he could come into the list by becoming a “new” person and trying to gain a massive rating but I think that could go disastrously wrong as now FIDE ratings start at 1000 which would take a long time to get to 2800!

The elephants on the front day visited us on our wedding day. We haveheard its good luck as well as a sign of fertility, I hope not as there were about 17 elephants drinking water from the river bank.

    I guess elephants are connected with children because both these strange and wonderful creatures are renowned for how soft and careful their stomping around is… (lol).

    Best wishes for your future together!

      Dear Brent,
      Thanks so much for your best wishes in both our marriage and the British! We’ll have to look at the calendar to see if we can play again in the British but I’m sure Ga would love to be back!
