Wanganui Championship

The G.F. Francis trophy which is over 100 years old is once again up for grabs at the Wanaganui
Club Championship. The format is a double round robin event each round being played on Monday night 7:15pm with a time control of 90mins + 30sec a move.


John McDonald 2064
Chris Burns 2039
Justin Davis 1967
Prince Vetharaniam 1913
Mathew King 1853
James Stewart Unrated

Two notable omissions from the tournament are C. Ker (2108) and M. Post (1834). Post has recently moved to Australia something which we will try to forgive him for as even the best of us can blunder.

C. Burns - M. King 1-0
J. Davis - P. Vetharaniam 1/2-1/2
