  Benzol: Paul Spiller is New Zealand's ace tournament organiser. His latest venture is the 2005 Oceania Zonal. He tells me he's expecting over 70 players. Here's a link to the site http://www.globalchessenterprises.c... The tournament starts in two days time i.e. 3pm Sunday afternoon NZ local time. We're 13 hours ahead of GMT at the moment.
Jan-28-05  Pawsome: Thanks for the URL <Benzol> I'll be checking in on developments. <*)OOO><( (Great White Shark)
Oct-30-05  soberknight: <We're 13 hours ahead of GMT <at the moment>.> What, that's not enough? You want to be 14 hours ahead?

(I assume you intended "at the moment" to exclude changes caused by countries switching on and off Daylight Saving Time at different times.)
