Latest Chess Ratings at Stan's Net Chess

Eventually I am going to get around to posting my goals for this year. For now, here is what I have accomplished so far at Stan's Net Chess:
Statistics for OnGoldenPawn

              rating [need] win  loss  draw total   best
Blitz           1242  [2]    57    63    14   134   1441 (13-Mar-2005) 
Standard        1957        302   262    88   652   1958 (14-Feb-2012) 
5-minute         851  [8]     1     2     0     3                      
Correspondence  1750  [1]    31    15    10    56   1750 (09-Nov-2011) 
Because I am still having trouble getting paired into correspondence chess events, and it seems that other people cannot challenge me to CC games, I will probably never get my CC rating over 1800. I was told by someone who wanted to play some correspondence chess games with me that my settings would not allow him to challenge me and I still do not know how to correct that.

Regional Scholastic Championship

I got this from Coach Willard Taylor:

Entries are coming in from all over the state. So far we have 5 counties represented.

It would be a shame if some of the top players and teams wouldn't receive this information on the West Florida Regionals and miss out on a chance to go to All-Stars just because some of the area coaches don't release the information to their teams. So if your team doesn't compete in this great local event (which last year had over 100 players) ask your coach(s) "Why Not?") Come join the fun!

Thanks for all your support, Coach Taylor 727-8852
