The patches are on their way and I hope to have them before I leave for the US. This way they can be represented at the upcoming tournaments in Jakarta and Manila.

I hope everyone is enjoying the article written by our local 'Vesuvius' on refereeing. Especially now that there are more established tournaments between Bangkok, Jakarta, Taipei, Hong Kong and Manila, it's important to address issues like this one.

While the site is not set up as a forum, it would be great to see a dialogue on the subjects presented here.
