The last 2 weeks have seen a large number of games played despite the public holidays. The Soweto Open was also held, and some backlog of Joburg club games were entered. The following rank changes occurred:

Sipho Mampe promoted to 1k (at the Soweto Open)
Chris Welsh promoted to 8k
Willem Joubert promoted to 9k
Ricardo Kaizer promoted to 13k (at the Soweto Open)

Aketa in Gauteng

A weekly schedule is beginning to emerge for Aketa’s
stay in Gauteng:

1) Monday afternoon: University of Johanneburg
1.5) Monday night: PTA Club (please let us know if you

are lifting him, others may want to tag along from
2) Tuesday night: JHB Club
3) Wednesday: Aketa’s no go day
4) Thursday afternoon: UJ
5) Thursday Evening: JHB Club
6) Friday afternoon: UJ
7) Friday Evening: Go to his place and get a lesson
8) Sat. & Sun.: Individual vistiors to his place

His mornings are free and he welcomes players to come
around to his place. His number is 076 600 5445.

Address: #4 3rd Avenue, Melville (just off main/Beyers

Planned (but to be confirmed activities)

1) 2 to 3 trips to PTA over weekends
2) Tuesday afternoon: Soweto Go Club (I need
volunteers for lifts for Aketa, petrol compensation to
be provided)
3) Ad hoc weekend events (such as a tournament, Soweto
day, etc.)

If you can help out with any of the above, do mail Tristen Taylor

Please do contribute to the Fund, as we still need to
pay for one more month’s rent plus lights.

On a personal note, I spent some time with him on
Sunday, and found the instruction invaluable, better
than months worth of book study.
