The Waikato-Tainui Games was on this weekend (well, this is the last of 3 weekend events) in a big way outside Taupiri, at the Hopuhopu Sports and Tribal Complex. A lot of sports are being played.

Chess was represented from 14 Maraes, playing a 6-round G15/0 tournament. Most of the players had not used clocks before and so this introduced more stress for them than usual. But overall the experience was a good one for the mix of adults and juniors (with two ladies playing). The venue was very good with plenty of space and the air conditioning was much appreciated as summer seems to have arrived at last. Once the event was over, and for a bit of fun,  I played a simul against any takers.

Cross table and some pictures are below. And a big thank you to Don Turner and his family for letting me get involved and helping out on the day.
