My name is Hanz, I am 63 and live midway between Ottawa and Montreal (100 km either direction) on 40 acres. I played a lot of chess in high school and university but then hardly any for a long time. A few years ago I organized a chess club at the high school where I taught and am getting back into the game. An old high school buddy put me in touch with this site so here I am. I tend to chat when I play and am interested in travel and learning about other parts of the world.
