In about mid-August, our numbers went up again, and we had 15-18 kids each week with several parents playing too. We were able to hold tournaments with full pairings as even when kids left, we could substitute another child who had just come.
Some sad news though: Tony has left! He's gone over to Fairview library to volunteer at the newly opened Fairview program (or more succinctly, newly "reopened" program). So right now, it's Yuan, Harry (a new volunteer) and I. The Fairview opening seems to have taken a toll on our branch numbers a little too; we only had 10 or so last week.
Thanks for reading!
