Hello Everyone, The recent strong earthquake and after shocks in Christchurch have been foremost in everyone’s mind. Luckily our residence was not affected at all. HQ suffered only one broken mirror, where there was severe damage to just about all the older buildings in the neighbour-hood. As I was overseas during the first week and only monitored everything from news reports, e-mail and phone calls. I was told that the tournament team trained on the morning of the earthquake.
