I understand that half the contingent are new to International Tournament. For those of you who are new this will be an excellent exposure to World Standards. As for the rest I hope you set yourself lofty goals. You may or may not reach it but in the trying you will learn a lot about yourself. Stay strong throughout the game. Move after move. Stay strong throughout the tournament. Game after game. There may be reverses but mental strength means you can rebound and not let one upset infect the following games and the tournament.
All my best to the entire contingent including the Head of Delegation.
Peter, just do your job with no excuses and respect all the parents and players there. You have been given another chance to redeem yourself so don't blow it again. We will be watching with interest.
