It’s been a bit too long since I last updated. Guy Fawkes has just passed (fireworks),we visited Parliament and the Museum of Wellington City and Sea. I’m not a big fan of museums (ones with stuffed animals or bodies… (mannequins) so that wasn’t so fun but Gawain will be doing a simul on the 28th of November @ the Museum Of Wellington.

We have my cousin’s wedding coming up next week (which is in the middle of nowhere NZ),

my friend from Denmark visiting soon as well as the Wellington Rapid that we’ll be playing . Check out for more details.

Gawain will be playing in the 2010 in Sydney as well as the Sydney International Open and Doeberl Cup over Easter.Gawain is also available for online coaching

via the Internet Chess Club obviously time zone will need to be taken into consideration.

Here is a game from Ga’s from the Christchurch weekender against a fellow Englishman.
