New Faces and Old

 

As we enter Round 4 of the Lew Collins Autumn Cup 2017

we are lucky to have 4 new juniors and the return of 2 past ones.

3 boys and 1 girl plus 2 boys that used to play here.

The boys are – Pratyush, Kane and Jireh and the girl is Varshitha.

Both Pratyush and Varshitha play very well but do need help recording their games as do Kane and Jireh.

Robin and Yabla  are old hands and should do well.

We extend a warm Welcome! to them all and hope they enjoy their time and games with us.

GOOD LUCK  –  EVERYONE.

Paul Norris Always Remembered With A Smile.

A few weeks ago there was the passing of one our highly respected members of our Club.

Paul Norris – ex President of Papatoetoe Chess Club from 2009 to 2016

a wonderful man, kind and more than happy to help anybody with a smile on his face.

“Alexander play with a smile, dont worry be happy” .. first words he ever said to me, when i asked him about chess from Alexander L.

Best saying was always “It is what it is” John M.

He will always be remembered never forgotten R.I.P
