Aside from all the work, today also include an area toast meeting for old and new presidents and an evening of net backgammon. I'm getting better, but the standard of play is high. Meanwhile, the boys are still playing chess keenly and took the so called pawn badge test this week. It's the first test, and will be followed by the knight test. The bishop and rook tests are still being developed, and I think queen and king are even further off than that, but that's the eventual plan. Hockey tomorrow afternoon.
