Back Home From Oza

One word I can say about Oza: 'Wow!'

I had a wonderful time. I wish I could start telling you all the stories right now, but I would like to look at my games, download pictures and maybe even get some sleep. I do have a life to attend to, now that I am home again.

The short story: I went 2-4 at 1k. All six games are full of learning opportunities, I can't wait to sit down and look at them seriously. I spent some time with my first game, and had an informal opening review with GeorgeW about my second game, but that's it for now.

HKA did a wonderful job organizing this tourney in Baltimore. I think we can safely volunteer him again. I met many old and new friends: goddess, Meepy, Flameblade, ellimist, SergioP, Stormer, and gottago. I am too tired to think of everyone.

I have been composing titles for all my games to tell about them over the next few days. Apart from go, there was The Best Thai Food Ever, The Unexpected Pillow Menu, The Geocaches Which Didn't Want to be Found, The Waiter's Meltdown, The Frozen Swimming Pool, The Worst Veggieburger Ever, and The Pilot Wandering Into My Friends Room. Oh, and let's not forget the Crabcakes Recommended by All and they were right.

I will study day and night to become stronger for next oza. I can't wait!

I hope you had a wonderful trip at OZA.
Since I don't come to KGS at night much any more, I don't see you. But my thoughts are always with you and your family. Be healthy and happy.
