NOTE : This collection has now been superceded by Fencible Masters (1997)

A Little History

The name 'Fencible' is derived from the word defensible. Retired soldiers mostly from Ireland and the midlands of England were encouraged to become members of the Royal New Zealand Fencible Corps. Those who signed up would get a new life in New Zealand and were offered free passage together with their families as well as a cottage and an acre of land to become theirs after a seven year term. For this they were expected to perform certain military duties including compulsory Sunday Church parade. The Fencible scheme was the largest Government funded early immigration scheme for Auckland. From 1847 to 1852 ten ships brought the Fencibles to Auckland where they founded the villages (now suburbs) of Howick, Panmure, Otahuhu and Onehunga. Many of their descendants still live in these areas today.

In 1997 to mark the sesquicentennial anniversary of Howick village Paul Stanley Spiller organized this tournament. It was sponsored by the Howick-Pakuranga Chess Club and Spiller Enterprises Limited. Held in the Howick Bowling Club it was a nine round all-play-all which ran from the 24th to the 29th of March. The participants were Paul Anthony Garbett, Ewen McGowen Green, Aleksei Kulashko, Eddy Levi, Leonard J McLaren, Tim Reilly, Drazen Sermek, Vernon Albert Small, Robert Wayne Smith and Stephen John Solomon.
