One player arrived 15 mins late for round 1 and was surprised to find themselves 15 minutes down on the clock. "These things never start on time" they complained. Clearly, not played an e2e4 event before!

Given that the alarm went off at the hotel at 8am, I reckon those staying on site are safe!

It seems that the "Curse of Sedgwick" now affects not only events with which I am involved, but those where I was merely invited to be an arbiter. (Other commitments obliged me to decline.)

Enquiries were made at breakfast (not by me) as to whether you were visiting for the day. :D
