|Jan-27-05|| ||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.)
|Oct-15-07|| ||Benzol: Happy Birthday Paul.|
