Andrew Davies joins the dans!

andrew_headshot.JPGYesterday at the Cape Town club, Andrew Davies became the first player ever to be promoted to 1-dan in the Western Cape. This followed a good performance in the 2nd Quarter internet tournament this weekend, where he defeated Konrad Scheffler, 1-dan, to put him in striking range of a promotion. Last night, he defeated Chris Welsh on 4 stones (who was also promoted this weekend) to claim the promotion.

Our hearty congratulations to you, Andrew. Andrew pointed out the other day that this is the first promotion he’s ever earned on the South African ranking system, having joined the system at 2-kyu, and receiving an ad-hoc promotion to 1-kyu. I guess if you had to choose one to earn, this would be it!

Congratulations also to Mike Cave, who was promoted to 22k after a victory against Trevor Hill last night.
