Sorry that I have gotten behind, my computer crashed and then I got a
virus that wiped out a few things. Hopefully
all is fixed and there will be no further trouble.
Of course each membership will be extended 2 months to try and balance
things out fairly.
I have just returned from Vacation and also the World Championships held
in Virginia. The contest was not
what I had expected. There were
some excellent matches but the attendance was way down from the one held in
Virginia in 1996. There were a lot
of countries listed that had only one or two people there and a few that had no
one there that I could see.
Just prior to the Worlds was the Tournament at the Paradise Beach Club in
Weirs Beach, NH. There were 68
entrants plus 17 kids from 7 states. Meet
Directors were Harry & Priscill Bean
This event was a benefit for a little girl
that is very sick. The contest raised around $1,000.00 to help the girl and her
parents. This was a very worthwhile event that Harry & Priscilla undertook.
