    Henry/Bob Blog Agreement

    Hi Henry:

    As we discussed in 2018, for a number of years now, I have been posting my chess blog:

    i) on my personal Facebook Account for my over 900 Fb friends from around the world (in English): https://www.facebook.com/bob.armstrong.9235;
    ii) sometimes, under the past owner, on the now-yours national Canadian English chess discussion board, Chess Talk [CT] (https://forum.chesstalk.com/…/chesstalk-canada-s-chess-disc…);
    iii) occasionally on other chess websites, such as that of FQE (Province of Quebec's Chess Association). That time the blog was posted in both French and English.

    I also "re-post" my Fb blog:

    i) on my Fb chess discussion group, Chess Chat - A Project of Chess Companions of Caissa, formed under my own personal account (https://www.facebook.com/groups/340524269771672/);
    ii) my Scarborough CC tournaments Fb Blog to SCC's Fb Page (https://www.facebook.com/ScarboroughChessClub/).
    iii) my Annex CC tournaments Fb blog to ACC's Fb Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/172335039452033/).

    In the summer of 2018, you and I agreed that I would also re-post my Fb Blogs on CT - for both my chess club official tournaments (Scarborough CC & Annex CC), and my non-club weekend (Sometimes longer; sometimes shorter) tournaments, in which I played between Summer 2018 and Summer 2019. I have done that now. Our agreement expired after I blogged the 2019 Toronto Open. We also agreed to review the agreement in the summer of 2019, and perhaps renew it.

    So.......would you like to renew our agreement for 2019-20? I have enjoyed re-posting my blogs here, and have had positive feedback.

    Under a renewed agreement, I would:

    a. Re My Club Play

    i) re-post my current Scarborough CC and Annex CC tournaments' Blogs.

    b. Re My Non-club Weekend & Longer Tournaments (Given my current schedule - from time to time, though, my life schedule may change so that I fit in a tournament not on my schedule, or may miss a planned one):


    i) re-post the blogs of the following tournaments:

    1. The 2019 Hart House Holidays Open – Toronto (December).
    2. The 2020 Hart House Reading Week Open – Toronto (February).
    3. The 2020 Quebec Open – if held in Montreal or close to it (July).
    4. The 2020 Toronto Open (September).

    It is a condition of mine that if I cannot get a blog posted by midnight of the day following the club tournaments, due to being busy, or due to some interference by my Bi-Polar Disorder, then I generally will cease trying to blog it. With respect to weekend tournaments, I am a bit more flexible, since schedules can be hectic.

    Let me know if you wish to have me continue re-posting my blogging on your ChessTalk.

    Thanks.

    Bob A

    Hi Bob,

    As far as I am aware, Henry is away overseas, so it's possible you may not receive
    a response for at least a week. What I do hear though, both from him and others,
    is that your blog is widely read and enjoyed, so I would go right on and keep it up!

      Hi Francis:

      Thanks for the support ..... I have been fully expecting that Henry would be fine to renew our agreement, but it is his website, and I am a particular kind of repetitive user, so I do need to ask.

      But I agree that in the interim, if he is away now, I can likely keep posting (status quo) until I directly hear from him.

      So I will go ahead with my Annex CC Blog tonight/tomorrow for the third round of our End of Summer Swiss (Assuming I can get it done, since I leave for Spirits' Den tomorrow, and have some morning appointments; and SD is a computer/internet-free [Almost] zone).

        I agree with Francis, he's right, your blogging is very welcome!

        And I still want to figure out a way to get you to Kingston 2020!!

          Hi Aris:

          Thanks to you also for your support.

          As you know, I traditionally only schedule in 4 weekend or longer, non-club tournaments, since I play two times a week at a club (Once at Scarborough CC; once at Annex CC).

          But that being said, my schedule is somewhat erratic, and from time to time, I get to work in an extra weekend tournament or two per year.....I do keep in my organizer all upcoming tournament dates (Wishful thinking, I guess) .......... so Kingston 2020 will be in the mix of "maybe???".

          Also, I hope this "bounce" of the post may bring it to Henry's attention, since I'd still like his confirmation on my continuing on without him! LOL
