    Hi All,

    Next up in our Marathon events is #7

    https://lichess.org/swiss/rHhUJNRC

    You can join or leave or rejoin at any time.
    We start at 7pm on Wednesday, and play until the computer runs out of pairings.

    Our longest to day was #5 with 9 rounds.

    Join us for a few games (or as many as you want) and help us get past 9 rounds.
    The pie in the sky goal is to max out Lichess platform of 100 maximum # of rounds.

    A reminder that Marathon #7 starts tonight at 7pm EST.

    Join the fun if just for 1 game, or stay for as long as you like.
    Join in, take a break, rejoin as often as you like, all we ask is that you remember to click withdraw when you are taking a break.
    You can rejoin at any time.

    Special call out to our friends in Western Canada. Most of our players are in Ontario. Some of them are heading for sleep time as we approach rounds 7-8-9
    Western Canada players essential to help us extend tournament past 9 rounds. Help us!

    Marathon #7 last week had 16 players and 7 rounds.

    Hoping for better turnout tomorrow.

    I did some stats and I estimate we will need 237 players to get to round 100.

    Why not join out outrageous journey.

    Join for just 1 games, or as many as you want. Join anytime, take a break whenever you like.
    Just chess and chill.

    Marathon #8 last week had 17 players and 9 rounds.
    We couldn't quite crack the double digit ceiling although we still had 6 active players for round 10.
    But we had all played each other, and the evil computer declined us our 10th round.

    Marathon #9 is this Wednesday. Join the fun. Here is the link.

    Marathon #9 last week, and the last for 2020,
    was just 13 players and 8 rounds. A fitting end to 2020.

    Tonight is Marathon #10 and the first for 2021.

    Join us and welcome in the new year.

    Marathon #10 last week was poorly attended as many were watching the riot in the USA.

    Marathon #11 goes off at 6pm on Wednesday, Jan 13.
