50 ( +1 | -1 ) Ah Jeff ...Wish I Could! But have to fly this very week to the wrong side of the world, or at least the otherside. I was going to go to Hastings too, for real, till hearing Short and Schiller wouldn't be there, so I couldnt get a ride from London you know ... Actually I was stunned to hear that no one in the top 100 showed there :( . *** Just wanted to say, I would Definately come to this one after missing such a Chess meal, but for circumstances. But wishing you and everyone attending a great time, wishing it were me!
