Captain Panrucker recently went on an excursion to Hastings International Chess Congress with some friends. One of them had an audio recorder so he made a little report and illustrated it for your edutainment and spiritual enrichment. While not the best illustrations in the world, nor the audio being of the highest quality (in fact it is quite blustery,) how often does one get to go to Hastings International Chess Congress? Once a year at the MOST. Anyway, she's a charming video so chequer out.
