so i didn't play much chess in 2007, i mean CFC-rated chess as i still did my blitz and correspondence thing, but didn't actually play that much OTB
i got a pleasant email today from my friend CL who was wondering if i wanted to go to Guelph in February
i think i might...CL is very enthusiastic which is a bonus because if left to my own devices i probably wouldn't play OTB at all :) time to start thinking about openings...
Are you interested in this tournament? Weather permitting!
