Check Is In The Mail: August 2021

This month, I’m skipping directly to the games. Enjoy!. Our first game features David Fischler who, in his first rated correspondence game, nicks the 2015-rated Robert Irons for a draw. Robert was 4-0 at this point in their 21SQ03 section. In the game David maintains a clean opening against Robert’s Queen’s Indian Defense, avoiding weaknesses and finding comfortable trades such as 13. Bxg7. Fischler then presses with 14.c5 which Irons uses as an opportunity to exchange another pair of minor pieces. After 30… Qf6 and 31… Qe7 Black comes close to forcing a perpetual check. The only other clear play seems to be on the queenside. And it’s honestly hard to me to tell at this point who would benefit if either side blinks. And thus… a draw.

Uniacke Estate Museum Park

The Uniacke Estate Museum Park is part of what was the expansive country estate of Attorney-General Richard John Uniacke (1753-1830). Built between 1813 and 1815, the grand country house is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Canada. The estate offers visitors a vivid glimpse of life in the early 1800s among Nova Scotia’s gentry. This is an amazing place to let the kids explore and get some exercise while learning some history.

Rick Allen: An Understated Legend

British climber Rick Allen died last week in an avalanche on K2 while attempting a new route on the Southeast Face. For the casual observer of mountaineering, and perhaps even many fanatics, you may be forgiven for failing to recognize Rick Allen’s name. But as South African mountaineer and one-time climbing partner Cathy O’Dowd told ExplorersWeb, Allen had “a fair claim to being the best UK mountaineer that no one had ever heard of.”
