I survived my challenge without injury, even to my scores.
Finished with 80% ish win rate with a total of 32 games - 24 wins - 3 draws - 5 losses.
Dont know what we have raised yet but will update when it is clearer.
Still time to make payments if you have not pledged yet.
Thankyou to Paul Denham for keeping the challengers flowing - was worried when I lost the very first game to Alex Smith but then got into my stride & the quote of the day has to be from Ciaran Jenkins after he lost to me "I didnt know you could play that well". - Ciaran, neither did I!!!

Your pledges can be paid in advance or after the event either by cash, cheque payable to Chess Scotland or you can use paypal and make a payment to firstname.lastname@example.org
