Burnham Cup Match

The Burnham Cup match between Palmerston North and Wanganui was due to be played this Saturday. The match is competed over 10 boards 2 games a day and each team has a home leg. The first leg of the match was played in Wanganui where they made an impressive start winning 12.5/ 7.5.
In the April issue of NZ chess magazine Wanganui were quoted “Horse shoes are being collected for part two in October.” perhaps too busy with this task the Wanganui Chess Club have sadly forfeited the Burnham Cup unable to put a team together.

the team captain of the Wanganui team is also the team captain of the NZ womens team.

Doesnt say much if he cant even arrange a local team at his own club !
