Work as a Teacher-aid @ a Special-school...I am also: Soccer- Player, -Coach, -Manager, Referee... Always in for a game of sport (basketball, volleyball etc.) Also did some running 6km or 8km, like to do some more. Chess is more next to it, not a clubmember or so, like to play it in the lost minutes, also checkers, stratego... So, I did play chess a long time ago, in my study-time, so +/- 30Years ago. Since then, a long time no chess, more other sports like Soccer, and all kinds of sports, even fast-running! Now I have discovered Chess.Com, so I have someone to play with... My first Game of Chess must be somewhere in 1962 as I was playing against a Polish boy (lost his name), at that time I was living in a convent (Boysschool), runned by monks! Just Started my own team "Paul's Team" , were we won our first Team-match, and busy with our first vote-chess... if you are a starter join our group, as we do first some easy games, we help you out!

This is working perfect, and see all the club-ressults! I also love old steamtrains, maybe because I lived, when I was only 5Y.O. just close to the railway-station of High Wycombe, England! I like http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/papakura-courier/7730433/KiwiRail-adds-in-Papakura-stop
